I Remember A Time – John 16:23-24

I Remember A Time – John 16:23-24

I remember a time
I could not believe
I would not believe
Could never have asked
But the in my need
My heart was awakened
My ears opened
A mind prepared
And tongue released
I asked, I asked
Between all the tears
And He took it away
And as time passes on
Almost ten years
I’m still sober
To this very day

Even Though – 1 Timothy 1:12

Even Though – 1 Timothy 1:12

Even though
I was broken
Even though
I was lost
Even though
I lied through life
Even though
Addiction had took it’s toll
He saw enough
To lift me
He saw enough
To trust in me
He saw enough
To make me strong
He saw enough
To wipe the slate clean
How great is our Lord

1 Timothy 1:12

You See My Recovery – Psalm 115:1

You See My Recovery – Psalm 115:1

You see my recovery
From ever lost
To sober man
Still none of this
Of my doing
None of it
My strength
To God be all the glory
To God be all the praise
He’s the reason
For my recovery
The reason I am here

Psalm 115:1

Misery And The Bottle – Proverbs 31:6-7

Misery And The Bottle – Proverbs 31:6-7

My misery
No longer ties to the bottle
And the brokenness ti brought
Faded away
The beer
The wine
Seem all so distant
Not found upon this path
I walk with the Lord
With Him I find my joy
And the strength to leave my past
And the bottle no longer holds me
Released from deep within it’s grasp

Proverbs 31:6-7

Replaced The Bottle – Ephesians 5:15-20

Replaced The Bottle – Ephesians 5:15-20

Replaced the bottle
With a song
The sick feeling
With joy
All change
When I took
The hand of the Lord
Now I give thanks
For all He has done

My Destruction – Proverbs 16:18

My Destruction – Proverbs 16:18

My destruction
All my pride
Could it all have been avoided
If I had opened up my world
Let them in sooner
To the darkness
And the despair
Could the fall have been less
If not for stubborn pride
A typical man
Wouldn’t show my weakness
Not until it was too late
And all came down
Then pride fell
And the light came in
To set me free
From the worst of myself
To open the doors
To a better path
To a better life

Proverbs 16:18
Proverbs 16:18

Just Hold On – Isaiah 35:4

Just Hold On – Isaiah 35:4

To all those
Treading the same paths
I wandered once before
Times long ago
When the bottle
A strange partner
In an effort
To break my world
To you
I say this
Hold on
Be strong
I know the pain
The emptiness
The despair
But He will come
Just wait
Stay strong
The world will change
Darkness to light
Hope from despair
So fear not
The time will come
Just hold on

Isaiah 35:4
Isaiah 35:4

Beginning, End, Beginning

Beginning, End, Beginning

Beginning of a soul
Our God
He is there
He who forms the soul
Breathes life into the heart
Walking with us through life
Through every wrong turn
There in all our failures
There for every fall
He was with me at the darkness
When I couldn’t take no more
He heard my cries at the end

End is where He caught me
In the darkness of my nights
Where I could fight no more
He caught me in the fall
Removed the burdens from my hands
Released me from the chains
Addiction held me within
He turned the end around
Took away all the pain
And there it started again
As He took me back to the beginning



Please don’t take another pill
You’ve sucked it down
How do you feel?
Has it lifted you from there?
Or dragged you down
Down deeper far
Is this the answer?
Is this the way?
The artificial
Will it save the day?
Will it release the pain?
You hold deep down
The pain that erodes the hope inside
A pill won’t help
It just delays it all
Tomorrow the pain will still be there
Tearing apart the fragile mind
Of a broken soul beyond the world
I speak of this
I’ve took the bottle
It never helped
Just numbed it all
But it returns when it all wore off
And I took it again to try and hide it all
A bleeding heart in the dead of night
Lost his way
Dying inside
Until a day I could face no more
And as I stared to death beyond
His voice came through above the chaos
To shine a light upon the pain inside
From that day I sought Him more
The bottles, the pills had no hold
I put them down and sought His love
To find a way out of this pain
Through open doors I found the light
And I walk free once more
So is this pill the answer for you?
Or can you hear Him calling you
To rise from just where you are
He loves you as He loves me
He cries for you in heaven above
He waits for you
My friend I pray
Embrace His love

The Ransom – 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

The Ransom – 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Lord You paid the price
The highest ransom
For this worthless soul
Taking up the cross
So I could live again
Why would You buy my life
At the cost of Your own
I was worthless in my sin
Just a wretch in my addiction
Yet You paid my ransom
With Your own life
So I could live again
What could I ever do to repay You
All I can do is to try
To try to be like You
I know that I will fail
But You will love me anyway
