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.
No longer in the mist The haze The almost there But not really My mind is clear It is my own No longer controlled From the bottom of a bottle Grace released me Grace set a mind free With a heart to beat And soul to live And for the I’m thankful For the good moments lived This moment right now And all that is to come
I have found my way From the torment of my past To the peace our Lord brings Time and again I wept in pain To face an end at the bottom of the glass Still His voice came calling through And I rose again in the grace He gives A sober mind I rest in now Shadows o the bottle all at rest So now I look to our Lord One who took the cross for us For when I remain in Him and He in me I find a way to make it through
I took a drink to find slumber Until the effect no longer held To drain the bottles a way of life Once the only way to fall asleep Then a mind confused by life A mind lost in the chaos of living A darkened heart upon the edge A drunken life close to the end
Then grace opened the door bringing forth light Shadows of the mind diminished A clarity flooded down to this heart A will to end was lifted with a whisper A drunken life that day found it’s end Now a living praising grace I live With Christ I walk in mercy’s glory With a sober mind to live each day
