It is word you whisper
when the odds are stacked against you.
It is thing you say to your soul
when you fear crushes you.
It is the anthem you sing
when life is a raging thunderstorm.
It is the refrain of hope pulsing through your veins
when your world comes crashing down.
It is heaven’s holy motivation to persist where others would have given up; and it is the instigation of the Spirit guaranteeing Whose we are.
Rise up, and stand anyway.
Lift your head up, and speak anyway.
Hold your ground, and stand anyway.
Keep showing up to life anyway.
Anyway. Anyway. ANYWAY!!!
Despite the circumstance, you can rise up … anyway. And in the quiet of a starless night, you can rest assured, God’s got your back … any which way.
