Passage 46: Arise, It Is Your Task

Arise, for it is your task, and we are with you; be strong and do it.

Ezra 10:4

Reflection

There maybe times when you feel depressed and tired of life.

Getting out of the bed really seem hard to do.

Nothing to look forward to.

These are mornings when the sun doesn’t seem to shine.

Or perhaps it does, but not for you.

These are the evenings while at a revelry, amidst the crowd, loneliness creeps within you.

These are the moments when procrastination is easy to find,

and pessimism abounds.

Arise, for it is your task to face life; no one else can do what you can do the way you’d do it.

Arise, for it is your task, and we are with you… facing the same challenges and battling with similar frustrations.

Arise, for it is your task, and we are with you; be strong and do it.

Just take a step; arise… arise… arise… Know that God is always with you.

Arise, for it is your task, and we are with you; be strong and do it.

Prayer

Father in Heaven, we thank you for this gift of life. We thank you for saving us in Jesus.
