She Rises Up

About

She Rises Up  was created to help and encourage other women to rise up. Rise up out of the ashes, out of what was meant to destroy you, out of addiction, out of dysfunction, out of abuse, out of self harm, out of toxic relationships, and out of the world.

We want to inspire you to rise up to God’s purpose for your life. No matter your past, God has an awesome future planned for you.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

-Jeremiah 29:11

 

Why She Rises Up?

In 2013, I (Destinee) felt God calling me to use my writing for his glory. I had just graduated with a degree in Computer Information Systems and could not find a job for the life of me.

God’s still small voice kept speaking to me through different avenues that he wanted me to use my writing and technical skills for Him. More specifically, through a blogging website.

I started to pray on what this website would be called and I searched through the Bible until it all came together. These are the verses that really spoke to me…

She rises while it is yet night and provides food for her household and portions for her maidens…

-Proverbs 31:15

The intentional life of the Proverbs 31 woman and the standard she sets for all women who are chasing after God is where “She Rises” came from.

Rise up and shine, for your light has come. The shining-greatness of the Lord has risen upon you. For see, darkness will cover the earth. Much darkness will cover the people. But the Lord will rise upon you, and His shining-greatness will be seen upon you.

-Isaiah 60:1-2

“Rises Up” came from Isaiah 60. God gave his life for us so now we can be a light and shine his light through our lives. He is here, his greatness has shone upon the darkness of what our lives once were. Now we can rise up from the ashes and live a life that glorifies Him!

That’s how She Rises Up was born.
