through His Word
by Katy Kauffman @KatyKauffman28
Put on your strength, O Zion;
put on your beautiful garments,
O Jerusalem, the holy city!
Isaiah 52:1a NKJV
Awake to light, awake to hope!
Awake to strength replacing weakness.
Awake to beauty displacing misery.
Are you ready for the onslaught of good that will come?
Of God rising, His wings drowning out the cries of hopelessness.
Of God fighting, His sword clashing with the lies and schemes of the enemy.
Awake to courage, awake to victory!
Awake to wisdom dispelling confusion.
Awake to power obliterating paralysis.
Are you looking for His descent into your turmoil?
Are you trusting that He will use His majestic splendor to rescue and heal?
Be prepared for your heart’s deliverance out of darkness and misery.
Awake to sing, awake to tell!
Awake to usefulness crushing aimlessness.
Awake to urgency eclipsing apathy.
Are you sharing how God has rescued you?
It’s your story, your privilege, your treasure.
It’s your memorial when darkness comes marching again.
