Trust me, I've been there, I've looked, I've searched and I know now, that there are no answers to be found in the bottom of a bottle or on the edge of a blade! Fighting Hard, Recovering, Rebuilding, REBORN. Moving on from addiction to a new life.
The cry of tears Falling in the night Echo high in heaven For He hears the cry Of the broken hearts That cry out beneath the stars And He delivers Their soul to the light To end the cry of the tears No more troubles Or painful tears No longer of broken heart
And if the sun shines no more Then I’ll have no need for days And if the moon fails to shine I’ll no longer fear the night For the everlasting light Of the Lord our God’s love Will be the way and the life Eclipsing the sun and the moon And the starts of the night So days will have no meaning Just the glory of God Beneath which there is life Surrounded by everlasting light
Let go the sticks and stones Don’t dream of chariots and horses No need for guns and bombs Let love be the one to conquer Let us trust in our God To see our way to peace To see our way to love all this earth So lay down all our arms And let love be our only weapon
Are we just spoilt clay Twisting in the potter’s hands The hands of the One who makes us To be the best pot we can Yet we twist ourselves out of shape Twisting between His fingers Yet ever He continues to mould us To form a yet better pot One far better than before Is it time we stopped twisting Let His hands form our soul To be the post which He desires To serve Him the best we can
I who have stumbled Though never fallen Caught by His arms Upheld by His hands By He who makes my way Making firm my steps His love for me Everlasting And in my faithfulness He delights I may still stumble Yet I am ever safe As I know I’ll never fall
Our perfect God Flawless to the end A love beyond eternity Ever perfect ways He who shields the broken Those who seek refuge The fallen and the strong He welcomes everyone His word is our meaning His love our strength and peace The way The word The love Our perfect God
Walked blindly In a darker world Addiction taken The life I owned Steeling the hope And the light in these bones In shadows shivering As the fears fell No smile No laughter Under addiction’s spell Then the voice spoke Just before the light came To throw wide the shadows To release all the pain No longer down cast The light consumed the soul And now when darkness visits When it fights for my heart I look back to the moment When the voice set me free I may still see shadows But His love brings me hope With Him never consumed When I have His unending love
