I’VE MADE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It’s finally here, after twelve long months, sometimes easy, sometimes hard, sometimes painful and sometimes emotional, the rollercoaster ride that’s been rumbling along for 364 days finally moves into it’s 365th and the celebrations begin.
On this day one year ago I took that last drink, it wasn’t my design to pick this date, I didn’t know that the first anniversary would land on Good Friday, I didn’t even realise that until a few weeks ago, but it feels ever more special that it lands upon this special day.
So today I give thanks, thanks in so many ways to so many people, but for the moment I give thanks to just one, the One that died upon the cross, the One that laid down His life, He did all that for our sins, for my sins.
All this that I celebrate today is only possible because of that sacrifice, the sacrifice of Christ upon the cross.
And I remember the nails that You took for me
When You died in my shame and iniquity
Jesus, You have set me free
The thorns of my pain You wore in a crown
When You bowed Your head
Your love was poured out
And my chains hit the ground
