Rise Again

           This is a poem based on the words of Truth found in Micah chapter 7. This poem is written for my sister, Jo, who is recovering from her second cancer operation and is fighting now the battle of the mind along with the physical battle of healing. Lift her up tonight in prayer.






Rise Again

The waiting is here and its silence is deafening.
Monotonous routine fills my day and it seems endless.
In these moments I find myself asking, “Where is the blessing.”
 I wish, I wish I could just learn how to be selfless.

The father of lies awaits my demise.
But he will rejoice over me no more.
My Lord, my God you reveal his disguise.
This is nothing he hasn’t tried before.

Lord I have fallen and I am here waiting.
Fallen into this place of doubting and fear.
Yet YOU have set me free by grace creating.
And I will rise again as you come near.

Lord I am sitting in this darkness.
Thoughts swirling and head spinning.
Yet you LORD are my light regardless.
You take me as I am and give a new beginning.

The waiting is here and its silence is deafening.
Monotonous routine fills my day and it seems endless.
In these moments I find myself asking, “Where is the blessing.”
 I wish, I wish I could just learn how to be selfless.

LORD your goodness I want to taste
Your freedom I want to learn to embrace
Fill me now that not a minute is in waste
And I will rise again through grace.

Your peace abounds within my heart
Your patience flows through my mind
It is Christ alone giving me a fresh start
I am rising again because in you I am refined.
