Chapter 2: Day 2 – Will You Take My Hand?

Welcome to Day 2 of Chapter 2 from Arise & Shine. Today, Bettie Gilbert invites you to join her at the feet of Jesus, with a poem she penned, as she poured out her heart and listened for the LORD’s response to her. May God bless each one of us, as we draw near to Him today, as Bettie did in this poem. May He cause us to bring forward a free will offering of pure white linen ourselves, as we lay before Him all that is swirling inside of us. May He clothe us in His pure white garments of grace.

“He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.” Revelation 3:5 (NKJV)

Days looming
Horizon bleak
My heart aching
World amiss.

What have I missed?
I am only a sinner
But saved by grace?

Out of the fog
Mist swirling
Tears falling
Voice calls.

โ€œAre you listening My child?
You are My Beloved
Will you take My hand?โ€

Impossible dream
Rescue waiting
Deliverance coming
Heart stirs.

โ€œCan you hear My voice?
I have called your name
Are you holding to My promise?โ€

Hands rise
Lips speaking
Praises raising
Glorious Savior.

What am I holding onto?
A Kingdom that cannot be shaken
Is it true that I belong?

Newness waiting
HE overcomes
Sinner saving
Now set free. 

Am I dancing?
With feet not broken
Will I hold on a little longer?
