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 felt them come for me To take away my freedom Placing me in the prison of my mind But they could not win No, not this time Because He who is in me is stronger He who overcome death Leads me to overcome their words To rise again like the morning sun When they surround and I feel empty And my faith is all I have left That faith that He within shall overcome And with faith I fight And with faith I overcome
A shattered soul Yet still I fight A quiet word At which I cry A hope in the light A light that’s mine And through the tears My smile will shine I am not consumed By their angry words I rise again Like a feather on the wind I trust in Him Keeper of my heart And I overcome What I wait for Him
Around me my darkness Prizes open my scars Tearing at my soul Shattering this heart Yet He is the light That came into this world And as this darkness tries to rise I cling to Him evermore I long for His heart To once more beat within mine For Him to bind up these scars And set free this soul So here I look to the light And cry out His name
Upon my floor Are all the broken mirrors And here I lie Broken amongst the shards No longer standing I have not the strength My arms are failing This battle soon to be lost Oh, here I am Amongst the shards on this floor I need their strength If I am to stand again I cry to the Lord As the tears stain my face This can’t be the end You promised me so much more But how can I fight When my arms I can no longer raise Here I am
In need of a sign To raise me from this place In need of a hand To lift this spirit high In need of Your words To fill this broken heart In need of Your love So I can live again So upon my floor Are all the broken mirrors And here I lie Broken amongst the shards Will anyone find me?
Do I always show? How grateful I am To the God of all compassion Do I show my thanks? For the new life I have found Maybe I could sing more Raise greater praise to His name To let Him know how I feel Yet times I hide away Not showing who I truly am Or who He needs me to be For He’s the one who saved me In my trials He protects me When I stumble He catches me And the collects all my tears So how can I tell Him? Just how much it means Still He’s deep in my heart So I’m sure He really knows But sill I’m going to do my all To make sure He really knows Just how much I love Him so
There is nothing you can do To stop it’s coming It’s there for you Forever shining Though our eyes Don’t always see And our hearts Don’t always feel it’s warmth It’s forever there The light of Christ, our Lord So let your heart rejoice Your voice sing a song of praise To His Holy name Giving thanks for the light that shines There forever on your life Forever shining
