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.
Feeling the burn Of a heart In all it’s brokenness I feel it’s condemnation For all my acts That split it in two Causing the pain to spread Deep into my soul But my Father He says let go Don’t let it grow For He is greater than my heart In His hands Is my healing In His voice The words to lead my way My Father knows all My beginning to my end The pain of this heart Won’t burn forever He shows me a time to come Where a veil of peace Will cloak my heart To extinguish the fire Of the pain of acts past And love will thrive For He is great And love shall Conquer all
When the heart condemns And this body shakes To the rhythm of dark thoughts A soul cannot comprehend
It’s my heart It’s tattered It’s torn It’s ragged It’s frayed It’s me
The condemnation of my heart Is like a prisoner of my mind Rattling chains of captivity Until it wakes the whole world
It’s my heart It’s hurt It’s bleeding It’s broken It’s pain It’s me
And even though this heart condemns It doesn’t mean I’m bound to fall I may be down upon my knees So let the prisoner inside cry
It’s my heart It’s empty It’s weak It’s distant It’s cold It’s me
And when my broken hallelujah Reaches the edge of my lips Then this heart is restored By the Holy Father’s love
It’s my heart It’s renewed It’s bound It’s beating It’s rebuilt It’s me
NOTE: My heart once more tried to condemn me earlier today, but as I stood there beginning to drift into bad memories, my mind switched to these words that I had written earlier in the morning, immediately my mind snapped out of it and I found the heart to worship.
There are so many times that my heart condemns me, I’m thankful I can turn to the Lord and find peace.
GREATER by MERCYME Bring your tired Bring your shame Bring your guilt Bring your pain Don’t you know that’s not you’re name You will always be much more to me
Every day I wrestle with the voices That keep telling me I’m not right But that’s alright
‘Cause I hear a voice and He calls me redeemed When others say I’ll never be enough And greater is the One living inside of me Than he who is living in the world In the world In the world And greater is the One living inside of me Than he who is living in the world
Bring your doubts Bring your fears Bring your hurt Bring your tears There’ll be no condemnation here You are holy, righteous and redeemed
Every time I fall There’ll be those who will call me A mistake Well that’s ok
There’ll be days I lose the battle Grace says that it doesn’t matter ‘Cause the cross already won the war He’s Greater He’s Greater
I am learning to run freely Understanding just how He sees me And it makes me love Him more and more He’s Greater He’s Greater
