Rise up Motivational Poem: Overcoming Life’s Challenges

motivational poem


It takes a lot of courage
to smile through your tears,
and from a breaking heart.
But that’s what you’ll need
to rise up out of the ashes,
a minute to crawl out
of your sadness
 and make agreement
with yourself,
that no matter how bad
it looks right now,
this moment
does not define you.

A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:22 niv

motivation for a new day

It takes a lot of character,
to laugh at your fears,
and look braver than you feel,
but that’s what you’ll need
to know that your fears are not real…
to rise up out your helplessness
and decide
that this moment
will not defeat you.

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27 niv

rise up

Just because you have lost something,
does not mean that you have lost yourself.
That is the time when you
can let go of what you thought
you needed to complete you.
To look within you
and see that you are complete…
that you are whole and
beautiful  just the way you are.

rise up

And no matter how much you feel
like you can’t make it through this storm,
remember that you’ve been here before,
and that you did make it…
That God gave you a miracle
and  introduced you to
a part of you
that is invincible.

But those who wait upon God get fresh strength. They spread their wings and soar like eagles, They run and don’t get tired, they walk and don’t lag behind.  Isaiah  40:31 msg

rise up

Just because you don’t know
what to do right now,
doesn’t mean that you are lost.
Remember that you’ve been here before,
and God showed up
and made a way,
because at your lowest moment
you prayed like you’ve have never prayed.

motivation for a new day

There is a sanctuary where you can be safe,
in the prayers you say.
Your moment of sorrow,
could be your point of grace;
when God moves something
out of your way to set you free,
and show you that
he made you more powerful,
and capable and stronger than
you’ve dared to believe.

rise up

It is out of nothing
that He created the world,
and is out of your nothing 
that he will make something new.
It is when you are empty
that God can fill you up
with what is heavenly
and has eternal value.
One day you may
look back at this time
and realize that it didn’t break you,
but it actually saved you.

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 2 Corinthians 4:17 niv

motivation for a new day

God will never allow
you to go through
something you can’t handle,
and he will not send you
into battle without carrying you.
With God on your side
nothing of this world can overcome you.

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. Isaiah 43.2 niv

motivation for a new day

There is a reason and a purpose
for everything,
and maybe,
just when you thought
your life was falling apart,
it was actually
falling into place.
One day you’ll rise up
out of the ashes,
with a smile
On your face.

rise up
