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.
The battle is the building The thing that makes us Who we are to be Hard pressed Yet never left to be crushed Perplexed Still comforted before despair Persecuted Never yet are we alone Struck down Still He won’t let them destroy us Yet we are built Made to be Just who we are meant to be Through the battle In the trial Yet never alone
Lord, I heard You today Through the words of another As I opened my voice Let free my soul To a child of Your kingdom Now I understand Once again The pressures I feel The squeeze and the crush Leaving me cold and empty It’s all but a moment in time But still I’m not alone Not destroyed But to be shaped by the challenge For moments to come Prepared for my own tests And the trials of others I understand it’s just a season And I see the pattern shift A time is coming It’s already upon the horizon When I will taste the free air Breathing freely once again For now I’m holding on As tightly as I can to You With a renewed hope Now I’ve heard Your voice
Where do I move Where can I turn Hurt closes in From every side My body it writhes Pain infests the bones It craves for the poison It thrived on for so long Can’t take any more This spirit is crushed Can I give in?
Yet I’m not abandoned I’m not here alone The hands they are reaching Bringers of comfort Light of my hope This pain it subsides Victory is mine The soul it stands Free not destroyed So now I rise Free from addictions With the Father I now walk
