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.
Evil cannot fight evil And hate cannot conquer hatred For as they say Two wrongs don’t make a right So love will defeat evil Only love conquers hate So love those that are enemies Pray for those that come against Let love be the warrior that stands Triumphant until Christ returns
The night is long Yet it won’t last Still as it passes I never leave Darkness may linger But it never overcomes The light I bring So do not be afraid Do not be discouraged I am here tonight And here I will stay Beyond the morning come Forever and always I stand at your side Darkness can never win While I carry the fight
I have prayed and prayed And my hope has waned Yet still I know That He answers my prayers One day He will grant The hopes of my heart Yet still in the yearning I find the gift of patience grow Still I feel His love Above it all And that will never wane Then neither will my hope
It’s two weeks on And today I walk Though I know I shouldn’t I shouldn’t walk at all Yet He protected me The Lord I praise In that moment of need When all could be crushed I rise again With nothing left broken My protector, my shield In the moment of need I thank You for all And lift up my praise
My eyes have glanced across the room Looking for the praise of the people here Yet who am I and what have I done? Any more than each of those in this room? But this is human, a trait of us all Looking to be exalted for all we do My eyes are falling to my feet below Who I am is not locked in the praise I receive Who I am is found the praise that I give So for now I let it all fall and I carry on Silent in serving, yet praising in great voice
To you my friend I offer my hand For I was once Just like you How could I believe? Someone show me a sign Until I asked for help And His hand was min For now I am here Whenever you are ready If you ever struggle Know I am here And the hand that came to me In my darkest night Will be here with me Ready to reach out to you In your darkest night
There upon the rippling waters Is that the truth That looks back at me? The face I see Is that who I am And is it all I can be? And what of the heart within Does that reflect the truth? Of everything I was made to be And every part of who I am Will my heart reflect the life? The Maker has prepared Or am I ever destined to be? Just the ripples upon the water
