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.
I have slept in silence Only my screams echoed in my mind It’s touch of death was upon me Until He heard my calls By His hand life now flows within my veins His unfailing love halted my slide My fear fell like the shadows Blinded by the light of the day His hand restores the fallen His love fills broken hearts with hope No longer silence here in darkness I dwell in joy under His great light
Where would I be now? Without the arms that You led me to Their words of encouragement All formed within Your word Become part of the foundations of my recovery In my darkness they bring Your light My tears they have wiped away In the shadows they dare to reach To bring me back into Your light I thank You for this family That have watched over me as I grow All part of my recovery And without them this I ask Where would I be now?
Am I fully embracing of Your word Do I do as Your word commands Sometimes it feels so distant The things that I should do I try Yet I still fail At times I turn my back But here is my promise That I will try evermore I know at times I may fall short But still it is the time To give Your word my all
I write my words So deep and yet so personal Once of fear and loneliness Of captivity and desolation Still the darkness of them is defeated By the light of Your mighty works That now shines upon my life Illuminating the words of my rescue Now words of the gift that You gave A sign of Your great wonders That lay upon my life That make me who I am
I feel Your fingers within mine Like the night the light came To lead me from my darkness Where under addiction’s shadows My eyes were blind in my cage I held on to You so tightly That night when You set me free And still today in the light upon me I still hold on to You so tight And I write to the lost Of the greatness of Your deeds He who drew me from my darkness And set His light upon me
