WON'T YOU RISE WITH US?
On a Sunday, about a month before Anita Cordell, founder of I Will Rise, was in church on a Sunday morning. The worship team began playing Chris Tomlin's song "I Will Rise'. Will they team led in worship, Anita had what many call a God Moment. Her ears could literally only hear the team singing 'I Will Rise.... I Will Rise... I Will Rise" Over and Over. She opened her eyes and noticed that those around her were singing other words. She asked God what was happening and He spoke to her heart and said, "Name your project I Will Rise. I will tell you why later." About 2 days before the cameras rolled, He spoke to her and told her why. He said, "There will be 3 groups of people your films will affect. The 1st group are those who have been abused or who are still feeling pain from their abuse. They will see your films and will find hope in them. Their hearts will find courage to state 'I will rise from this industry or this pain.' The 2nd group of people your films will affect will be those who are the abusers. There will be drug dealers, pimps, johns, etc who see your films and will be convicted. You obey. Let Me do the convicting. When I convict, they will say in their hearts, 'I will rise up out of this industry'. And, the 3rd group of people who your films will affect will be churches, community members and friends. They will heart what you are doing and will say in their hearts, 'I will rise and help her'.
