I was all prepped and ready to blog regarding a different song, however, I can’t get the lyrics to this one out of my head. The song is called “I Will Rise” and it is off of Chris Tomlin’s New CD entitled Hello Love. Check out these lyrics.
There’s a peace I’ve come to know
Though my heart and flesh may fail
There’s an anchor for my soul
I can say it is well
Jesus has overcome
And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead
(And) I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow no more pain
I will rise on eagle’s wings
Before my God fall on my knees and rise
I will rise
Maybe this song is a modern day “It Is Well”, maybe it’s something altogether different. But this song speaks such hope to my spirit. In a day and age where nothing seems certain or secure, what hope to know that “Jesus has overcome and the grave is overwhelmed.”
Are you facing difficulties in your life right now? Does the current economic crisis of this country have you on edge wondering what will life be like in 6 months? I can’t guarantee that there won’t be difficult times in life. Even Paul wrote that in this life there would be trials and tribulations. I encourage you to take hope in the fact that Jesus has overcome all the forces of this world. Rest in that!!
