Awake—move up with Daystar Song.
Winter’s moving, new morn has come,
Spirit invites, move out and on.

Arise—move out with joyful song.
Clouds are gone, sun has come,
Spirit calls, move up, move on.


Arise—move melody and rapturous song.
Light moves near, vision now clear,
Spirit cries, move out, move on.

Arise, Jerusalem! Let your light shine for all to see. For the glory
of  the LORD rises to shine on you—Isaiah 60:1.

  1. Oh, WOW! You make me blush, Glenda!
    See, I just knew the Lord would inspire something beautiful in YOU… And this poem is just awesome!!!!
    Just minutes ago, I posted a new blog entry (my Blogspot site is below) on a similar topic.

    The title 2013: a NEW life.

    I wholeheartedly believe the Lord is challenging us to let go of old patterns of thought and behavior, which are more wordly than heavenly, more human than divine… And EMBRACE our new spiritual nature in Christ.

    We are indeed called to arise… We’ve been asleep for too long. But the day is coming.

    Get oil in your lamps, oh beautiful bride of Christ! NOW is the time. NOW He’s offering it to you. NOW He’s beckoning you to draw near. NOW… For who knows how much time we have left?

    TODAY is the day Jesus wants to SAVE you, CLEANSE you, FILL you, EMPOWER you. TODAY. TODAY. NOW. TODAY, RIGHT NOW He’s blowing on you. RECEIVE OF MY SPIRIT, He’s saying.

    You may feel a bit like Lazarus. Four days on the grave and stinking. Can you see Jesus CRYING for you? Can you hear His almighty voice cry out…



    • Carina,
      This is good stuff, Carina! I was just going to say,this would be a great blog and then I see that you do have a blogspot. Thanks for stopping by with your cheerleading. You are just confirming all God is doing in my life and has been for some time now. To God be the Glory as our lives tell His Story.


  2. Love, love, love this and wholeheartedly agree that it is the season to awaken and arise! The Lord has been speaking Isaiah 60:1 to me for awhile now. I even got a necklace the last time I was in Israel with that very verse inscribed in Hebrew. I wear it almost constantly as a reminder that it is a new day and a new season. Arise!


    • Pattis! That’s the dove that sat on my balcony for over an hour one day during Spring and the Lord let me get this picture so I could share with others. God is good. Thanks for stopping by with your words of encouragement.
