Rise. Move. Act. Speak. Represent.

When the bottom falls
out
when chaos becomes
normal
when justice gets
twisted
when innocents
die
when leaders
fail
when answers grow
complicated
when actions seem
futile
when grief
overwhelms
when the fog of confusion
descends
when loved ones ask, but I have no
reply
when I taste my
tears
when events sicken my
stomach
when I’d rather not see than
see
then I remember
you
then I run to your
temple
then I open my eyes to your
majesty
then I preach to myself of your
fatherly care
then I point my heart to your
presence
power
righteousness
mercy
justice
faithfulness
wisdom
grace
then I remind
myself
my world isn’t left on its
own
then I remember I am not
alone
then with grief mixed with
joy
I rise up in
hope
I move out with
courage
I act with
righteousness
I speak without
fear
I give my life to represent
you.
