You may try to crush my spirit in the dust - but I will arise -
You may tell me I am nothing - and my dreams may fade and turn
To rust - but friend - I am not my own - so I can say - I will arise - I will
Stand up again - though now I find myself alone - these days will pass -
And then - I will arise - and in the rising - will be blessed - and shine
In Him .

Yes - like a star - that only can be seen on darkest nights -
I will arise - and shine - and be made strong - though now I have
But little strength - and you may hope that I would soon be gone - my
Friend - if left to me that could be so - but there is One who takes my hand
And lifts me up once more - and this I know - that with His help - I will
Arise - as one in Him - a life aglow .

How can I say with such assurance - this will be ? - I only can
From past experience know - without a doubt - this is a certainty -
My God has never failed me yet - nor will He ever do - and so my friend -
Though I may fall - I will arise - I will stand strong - and give my all - for all
The wonders He has done - and in the doing - has included me - a
Little star - of no great worth to man - but loved by Him - my
Lord and God - for
All Eternity....

So friend - though made of dust - I will arise - and shine for Him -
My wondrous God - Eternally.


There are times that we may feel that all around is dark , and there is no rhyme
or reason for our lives..but so often , it is in those times, that the Lord is very close,
and He would have us know that we are not forgotten or forsaken .

I pray for each one who may be experiencing such a time ... Do not fear ...
you will arise again  if you put your lives and your future in the hands of
the One who will never let you go.

God bless you with His peace and love .
