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.
We have been trusted To rebuild His temple A temple of faithful Faithful to the Lord Here upon His earth Trusted to build Not to tear down Trusted to carry out works Not so shy away And if we have been instructed To build up His people The knowing and unknowing The faithful and the lost The family and the lonely Then let us not waste it That which is within us Given to us To do our part To do our best For the kingdom before God
All are given talents Gifts of hand and spirit To help build the kingdom At the call of our God So those who are called Come forth and build His kingdom on earth To give His lost children A place to call home
There’s broken walls all around Where ruins lay That once stood proud Mighty stones Once of a temple That held the love of God Was that you? Are you scattered? In pieces destroyed Lost beneath the sands Sands time that pass you by Once so strong Now just destroyed Where did it all go wrong? How did it come to this? Scattered walls Of a fallen heart Who once believed All could be rebuilt All could be remade By the hand of the Maker The master potter Who breathes life Into dust and bone He who formed the stones Of your shattered temple The heart and soul That once held Him so I stand with you Amongst these ruins With my hands I will start to gather These stones together One by one Stone by stone My God with me Our God with us The temple will stand once again Tall and proud Beneath the sun and stars The temple of a heart So full of God For out faithful Lord He who made the world Will see this rise From shifting sands To stand again Before the world
