I will Rise

A few weeks ago I attended a choir concert here at USU.  I loved every minute of it.  But, they sang a song that has stuck with me and been on my mind literally everyday since I heard it. 
They sang to honor a young  man who clearly had touched many lives. 
And now his memory has touched mine too.

As I listened to this beautiful song, I felt My God.
I felt His spirit stronger than I ever have before.

Jesus has overcome
I used to think people were crazy for letting themselves hit rock bottom before they sought help
whether from the Savior or from loved ones.
but, I did that.
I hit rock bottom in the Provo Mall food court with my mom
back in April
I couldn't do it anymore
I finally came to her for help
I was lost, confused, hurt, and abandoned.
I didn't know how to crawl back out of the hole I had got myself in.
I needed her.
She told me 
"You will rise above this
You will get beyond this
You have to turn to God.
Becuase he's felt this pain.
and he has overcome it
He's there for you.
Reach up
He'll help."
And He did
and He still is helping me
every day
I know that God lives
I know that my Savior Jesus Christ
suffered for my sins
I know that He died for me
and I know that He will come again
and when he does,
I will rise
when He calls my name
No more sorrow
no more pain.
And so will you.
