Strengthened I Rise

It creeps on you
    this life
        this new world
it creeps until you can't ignore
    the unease
        the out of ordinary
it creeps and obscures
    the way the fog closes in and hides things
        usually seen.

Day by day, moment by moment, 
    we live our lives
    barely seeing the
    toll that is being paid
    somewhere, somehow.

I go to my knees
        but knowing that the One True God,
        the one who knows all
        who sees all, 
    knows me
    sees me, 

I listen...

And She says, "Arise, child of mine,
for I give you strength of 
body and heart and soul.
Arise and step into this new day, 
this new moment, 
knowing I am with you, always.

Based on Ephesians 3: 14-17
