Arise, my warrior bride, arise! I call you into a place of intimacy with me. No more fainting, no more weeping – the night is over and the day has just begun. Arise, come forth in all your beauty and let my glory be seen throughout the earth.
I have prepared your heart and now it is time to rise up, as the lover and warrior that you are. I have dressed you in the bridal gown of heaven and I have shod your feet with boots ready for war. Your heart has been purified in the heat of my fire and you have been cleansed in my river.
Arise into your place. Arise!
Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.
