Rise Up

You’re broken down and tired
Of living life on a merry-go-round
And you can’t find the fighter
But I see it in you so we gonna walk it out
And move mountains
We gonna walk it out
And move mountains.

And I’ll rise up
I’ll rise like the day
I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again.

It’s a powerful message sung by Andra Day, and it speaks to those who feel that they have lost hope. To be sure, there are times in life when we can’t find the fighter in ourselves. There are times when we feel broken down and tired, wondering if there is even a small possibility that we can pick ourselves up and move forward.

But I love the hope-filled promise in this song — that we can rise up unafraid and do it over and over again. It’s the resilience we find within ourselves. It’s the unbreakable will that gives us the ability to move mountains. I love that thought.

Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. And nothing will be impossible for you.”

– Matthew 17:20
