Sometimes life can just get us down. The key is to not stay down. It may seem a little like tough-love, but the best advice sometimes is to just get up and keep going. Of course we have God as our help. He is ever ready to hear and to answer our prayers. He lifts our heart and clears our mind; so we are able to get up and follow after Him.
Get Up, the Two-Word Sermon
When life gets you down, you need to do one thing;
Get up, and continue serving your King.
When you are tired and weary, there is no other choice,
Get up and pray, in thanksgiving lift your voice.
When anger or fear or even bitterness takes its toll,
Get up to change your viewpoint; God is in control.
Get up when you are lazy, do that good thing for another,
When hungry or thirsty, get up and read God’s Word, and you will discover,
Your hunger is satisfied, and the thirst is quenched.
When you are ashamed or guilty, get up and quickly repent.
When Jesus healed the lame man, He gave him a project to do;
He said, get up and remember what God has done for you.
Peter’s mother-in-law was very ill and sick in bed;
Jesus healed her and she in turn got up and the disciples fed.
The young girl was asleep, and was brought back to life;
She got up, to her parents delight.
Get up and get busy doing whatever needs to be done;
And you also will be a glory to Jesus God’s Son
The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger.
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
