Sands Of Time – 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Sands Of Time – 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Sands of time
Will pass us by
Taking it’s toll
On our body
It wastes away
As time passes by
But our soul
Be renewed
Day after day
By the light
That comes
To release us all
So we hope
In the unseen
By our faith
In the Lord
Not taken
Or beaten
By the passing
Of the sands of time

If I Trust My Eyes – 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

If I Trust My Eyes – 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

If I trust my eyes
My heart just sinks
Falling to despair
As dreams fade to nothing
So I trust in hope
That I place in the Lord
And His promise unseen
Will be achieved by this heart
For His promise eternal
Will come to be
If I trust in His voice
And not what these eyes see

A New Sun – 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

A New Sun – 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Can I hold on
As the sun shines
On a darkening day
In the unseen I will trust
Like the new sun will rise
Come the morning
No matter where I awake
So I will trust in Him
Place my hope in His heart
My faith in His promise
And I know
That a new sun will rise for me

Lost In The Now

Lost In The Now (2 Corinthians 4:16-18)

Where I have I set myself
Lost in who I was
Lost in the now
Afraid of looking forward
I slip and I fall
Into the history of my mind
Clouding the now and the next
Father give me heart
Let this affliction pass by
And fix myself on the future unseen
Today I refused to be bound
To the past where I was lost
Father clear this mind of chaos
And let me rise again

SoberDay 625… It’s Been Hard, But I’ve Made It!!!

It would be easy to say that the last couple of months have been all a bit of a mess, in fact it would be a bit of an understatement, I would say I have been a complete failure, I’ve certainly felt that way, if I’m honest I have felt that way for most of that time.

Jeremiah 29:11-12
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.

But the truth is, I’m still living by the grace and strength I have been granted and each day I am still sober is never a failure, no matter what other trials I face, I have resisted any temptation to return to who I was, despite all the voices of deception that echoed around my my mind.

Jeremiah 17:7-8
But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”

So today I put all that troubles me at the foot of the cross and give thanks for the strength that has seen me through to today, SoberDay 625 and pray for the strength and grace to keep this journey going.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Verse 1:
What can I give to You
What can I offer to a king
For all the love You’ve shown
For all Your mercy over me

I called Your name
You heard my cry
Out of the grave
And into life
My heart is Yours
My soul is free
Thank You God for saving me

Verse 2:
The rock of salvation
My hope is built on nothing less
Morning by morning
How great is Your faithfulness

You gave Your life upon the cross
You suffered once for all
You made a way
Jesus, in victory You rose 
You made us all Your own
Now we are saved
