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.
To follow the road So straight Or winding ways Through empty lands Spirit lead me there To where the broken dwell The lost are calling Upon broken knee For a hope For a brighter day I know they’ve heard stories Seen a man with a box On crowded street Telling of a saviour Yet they’ve still to see A heart that was lost in empty moments like theirs They need to see A heart that was dead Now brought to life By the power of the One Who took to a cross To release the lost And lead them home So send me there Let me follow the road The straight or winding To where they are Where the broken dwell Let me show them a heart One once so black That beats again From the Saviour’s blood Let me show them life Tell them of Your love So lead me spirit To follow the road The straight and the winding To where the broken dwell
How do you feel tonight? I can see the shadows Behind the eyes The mind is racing Through lost thoughts Of a waste of life One of no worth How could they love you? When you can’t love yourself How could they need you? When you don’t want yourself Do you feel they could never know? How you feel So very, very low Where hope is dry Like dust and bones Lost in the sands The desert tomb Still there is a wind That blows through the valley One of life One of hope To bring life To dried up bones Life to the lifeless Hope for the hopeless And love to the loveless Your worth to the Father More precious that you know His love for you Stretches far beyond the sun See His face Embrace His arms Let the love invade the heart For the heart is where life beats Where the touch of the Father Restores the weak In cheerful voice You will praise His name And feel the emptiness Just fade away His love for you Will end the emptiness Where love can grow To fill the soul You’ll find the worth To the Father and Son Realise you worth to everyone Seeing the world in different light And those who love you Will see you change And grow inside To rise again When you let the Father Heal your heart
My God, my heart Teach me to see You In ways I’ve never known To understand Your word Leading to the way I should go Teach me So I can teach them The children entrusted to me So they may have a heart That beats only for You
Days will go by And I feel my heart fail Buried deep below the feelings From where I feel I can never recover Dragged below by desires of the flesh Then the night comes My pains turns to prayer And in those words I hear I feel His strength reach this heart In the night He is my portion Saviour of my lonesome heart My hope to face the new day With a strength to see it through Where this heart beats stronger than ever And the Lord and I take new steps together
In my mind I want the day in my heart I want it now Can I wait? Will this heart be pulled apart? Will this soul be torn in two? Can I hold tight the promise? Will I see this through to the end? A burning desire Just waiting to break out But the timing is His He sets it all To a time when the beauty will bloom And something new grows In His timing man cannot comprehend And all He asks is to trust in Him So here I hold The internal battle raging on But His promise is true And all I can do is believe With all I have Believe
Are we going to start a fire One that burns deep within our souls Take the glowing embers And raise a fire the world will see A soul on fire for our Father God There is no greater sight to see So today I say let it burn That feeling of joy deep inside Release its flames into their night skies Let them see His Kingdom is alive So let’s start this fire deep inside One that burns deep within our souls
In your heart You may find trouble Still let it be pure Feel the Son deep within In your soul be righteous For He will deliver Your troubles will turn to dust Like the sands of time Trust your heart unto Him And feel your soul flow free
