Britt Nicole - The Sun Is Rising...my motivator song :)

You know when you hear a song, and while listening to it, you manage to block everything else out, and
it's just you and the music? That feeling is almost indescribable! I'm
sure many of you know what I'm talking about. I've had previous posts
about some songs and lyrics that have really spoken to me, touched me, made me feel amazing! And here's another! (I'm listening to it right now)

The sun is rising
When life has cut too deep and left you hurting
The future you had hoped for is now burning
And the dreams you held so tight lost their meaning
And you don't know if you'll ever find the healing

You're gonna make it
You're gonna make it
And the night can only last for so long

Whatever you're facing
If your heart is breaking
There's a promise for the ones who just hold on
Lift up your eyes and see
The sun is rising

The sun is rising

Every high and every low you're gonna go through
You don't have to be afraid I am with you
In the moments you're so weak you feel like stopping
Let the hope you have light the road you're walking

You're gonna make it
You're gonna make it
The night can only last for so long

Whatever you're facing
If your heart is breaking
There's a promise for the ones who just hold on
Lift up your eyes and see
The sun is rising

Even when you can't imagine how
How you're ever gonna find your way out
Even when you're drowning in your doubt
Just look beyond the clouds

Just look beyond the clouds

Whatever you're facing
If your heart is breaking
There's a promise for the ones who just hold on
Lift up your eyes and see
The sun is rising

The sun is rising

Even when you can't imagine how
How you're ever gonna find your way out
Even when you're drowning in your doubt
Just look beyond the clouds


I first heard the song as a soundtrack, while watching The Other Woman. The scene was a sad, yet powerful moment. A beautiful moment. I heard the song once or twice after in my car, and then at a ladies church event. Every time I heard it, it just gave me this grand feeling of awesomeness, like I could take on the world. It has now become "my song". You know what I mean...that song you listen to everyday, on repeat :) Listen tp the lyrics, it's absolutely beautiful! Enjoy!

About three months ago, I had to say farewell to a good friend of mine. As a parting gift, I painted (or rather attempted to paint a portrai...
