These Bones Shiver – Romans 6:11-14

These Bones Shiver – Romans 6:11-14

These bones shiver
Beneath it’s pull
As fingernails stripped
The skin from the bones
A mind rang
With voices of desire
As the bottle stood waiting
So weak a spirit
No resistance to give
Addiction led to sin
And all to near death
Until the Lord’s voice
Rang true within the mind
The bottle lost it’s pull
To a new spirit within
To fight the sin of the past
Resisting the sin of tomorrow
The bottle was smashed
Long ago
When a new being rose again
His grace runs through my all
As I died to myself
Sacrificed with my Christ
So in mercy I could rise again
No longer these bones shiver
I am alive
In my Christ
My strength
All wrapped up in Him

Verse of the Day – Proverbs 31:6-7

Proverbs 31:6-7

Proverbs 31:6-7

This is how I fell, I drank to forget all my problems, to release myself from my anguish and distress, until I got to the point where the need to drink was more than the need to live.

Thankfully the Lord saved me from this point, He told me I was needed more than I ever knew and that there was a life within worth living.

FROM THE DAY by I AM THEY
When You found me, I was so blind
My sin was before me, I was swallowed by pride
But out of the darkness, You brought me to Your light
You showed me new mercy and opened up my eyes

From the day You saved my soul
‘Til the very moment when I come home
I’ll sing, I’ll dance, my heart will overflow
From the day You saved my soul

Where brilliant light is all around
And endless joy is the only sound
Oh, rest my heart forever now
Oh, in Your arms I’ll always be found

From the day You saved my soul
‘Til the very moment when I come home
I’ll sing, I’ll dance, my heart will overflow
From the day You saved my soul

My love is Yours
My heart is Yours
My life is Yours
Forever

My love is Yours
My heart is Yours
My life is Yours
Forever

From the day You saved my soul
‘Til the very moment when I come home
I’ll sing, I’ll dance, my heart will overflow
From the day You saved my soul

From the day You saved my soul
‘Til the very moment when I come home
I’ll sing, I’ll dance, my heart will overflow
From the day You saved my soul
From the day You saved my soul
 

Another Night, Another Day – Micah 7:8

Another Night, Another Day – Micah 7:8

Another night, another day
Another week passes by
Days to count, weeks to number
From the day I began to rise
There is no need to gloat
The bottle is forever empty
I’m no longer looking for answers
For it is I who has been found
Those dark nights of wanting
Filled by the Lord’s light
This addict is still fighting
Of each day he is proud
With thanks to my Lord
For the strength to keep rising
And the love to keep living

Verse of the Day – 1 Timothy 1:12

1 Timothy 1:12

1 Timothy 1:12

I remember the night I made my first prayer, I prayed only for the strength to get through, I was then an alcoholic looking for a way back to life, I had made it through the night without drinking and I thanked the Lord for that peace and asked for the strength to break the habit.

Over the coming weeks the habit was broken, at times it was hard, but I kept praying for that strength and He kept answering every prayer.  That was back in back in March 2012 and that strength has been with me ever since.

NOBODY LIKE YOU by RED ROCKS WORSHIP
You speak and waters crash upon the sand
The oceans push and pull at Your command
You hold the moon and stars within Your hands
And all with just a breath, the world began
We sing…

God, there is nobody like You, God
There is nobody like You, God
And there will never be
There will never be anyone like You, Jesus

When nothing we could do would be enough
From Heaven’s highest place, You reached for us
My sin and shame forever overcome
Oh the grave was overwhelmed by perfect love
Yeah, we sing…

God, there is nobody like You, God
There is nobody like You, God
And there will never be
God, there is nobody like You, God
There is nobody like You, God
And there will never be
There’ll never be
There will never be
Anyone like You, Jesus

‘Cause Your Name is greater, than any name I know
Your Throne is higher, than any other throne
You are the Author, the Creator of it all
You stand alone, You stand alone

Oh God, there is nobody like You, God
There is nobody like You, God
And there will never be
God, there is nobody like You, God
There is nobody like You, God
And there will never be
There’ll never be

No one like You
There’s no one like You

There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You, God
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You, God
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You, God
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You, God
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You, God
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You, God

Verse of the Day – 1 Corinthians 4:1-2

1 Corinthians 4:1-2

1 Corinthians 4:1-2

If we are the servants of the Lord, we have received His word, His wisdom.  As His servants we must prove faithful by spreading this great word, this great wisdom, there are those that do not know, those that need to find a way out of where they are.

I was once like that, then one night, someone came and told me of the word of God, since that day my life has not been the same, that night doors opened, light came in and I came alive.

BORN AGAIN by THIRD DAY and LACEY STURM
Today I found myself
After searching all these years
And the man that I saw, he wasn’t at all who I thought he’d be
I was lost when you found me here
And I was broken beyond repair
Then you came along and you sang your song over me

It feels like I’m born again
It feels like I’m living
For the very first time
For the very first time
In my life

Make a promise to me now
Reassure my heart somehow
That the love that I feel is so much more real than anything
I’ve a feeling in my soul
And I pray that I’m not wrong
That the life I have now, it is only the beginning

It feels like I’m born again
It feels like I’m living
For the very first time
For the very first time
It feels like I’m breathing
It feels like I’m moving
For the very first time
For the very first time

I wasn’t looking for something that was more
Than what I had yesterday
Then you came to me and you gave to me
Life and a love that I’ve never known
That I’ve never felt before

It feels like I’m born again
It feels like I’m living
For the very first time
I’m living for the first time
It feels like I’m breathing
It feels like I’m moving
For the very first time
I’m living for the first time
In my life
 

From The Vine – Isaiah 24:11

From The Vine – Isaiah 24:11

I spent many nights
In my own darkness
Where I cried out
For lack of wine
I had let is sustain me
Be my crutch in harder times
It had robbed me of my money
Took the dignity from my face
And I became so angry
When I couldn’t taste the vine
Then the Lord, He came calling
And told me there is a way
To walk out from this darkness
And break my chains to this wine
From that day I have never wanted
Never cried for the fruit of the vine
I found a new way forward
One with the Lord’s hand in mine

Isaiah 24:11

Verse of the Day – John 6:35

John 6:35

John 6:35

Before meeting Christ my thirst was for the alcohol that always left me needing more to survive, a never ending thirst that restricted me life.  Now I thrive with all those yearning gone, sometimes life is hard, but I never get those old thirsts, I fight my way through with Christ at my side.

KING OF LOVE by I AM THEY
The King of Love my Shepherd is
Whose goodness faileth never
I nothing lack if I am His
And He is mine forever
And He is mine forever

Where streams of living water flow
My ransomed soul He leadeth
And where the verdant pastures grow
With food celestial feedeth

Never failing, Ruler of my heart
Everlasting, Lover of my soul
On the mountain high or in the valley low
The King of Love my Shepherd is
The King of Love my Shepherd is

Lost and foolish off I strayed
But yet in love He sought me
And on His shoulder gently laid
And home rejoicing brought me

In death’s dark veil I fear no ill
With Thee, dear Lord, beside me
Thy rod and staff my comfort still
Thy cross before to guide me

Never failing, Ruler of my heart
Everlasting, Lover of my soul
On the mountain high or in the valley low
The King of Love my Shepherd is
The King of Love my Shepherd is

Oh, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Oh, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Never failing, Ruler of my heart
Everlasting, Lover of my soul
On the mountain high or in the valley low
The King of Love my Shepherd is

Never failing, Ruler of my heart
Everlasting, Lover of my soul
On the mountain high or in the valley low
The King of Love my Shepherd is
The King of Love my Shepherd is

And so through all the length of days
Thy goodness faileth never
Good Shepherd, may I sing Your praise
Within Your house forever
Within Your house forever
