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.
Even those Who feel life is barren Nothing to fulfil it Alone in all this world Our Father, He has promised In the thirsty lands There will run water To feed the barren lands Where nothing once grew New life will come forth For you and yours to come This generation and the next So be ready for the Spirit’s coming Be ready to begin to plant Upon your now fertile lands
In the barren lands Where only the lost wander There in the desolation Where the broken thirst It’s where the water will pour forth Out of heaven By the will of our God To bring life To where the dry lands hold none A blessing to them Who hear His voice calling A bless for them For all their time to come
Dried up with the winds That came blowing through the plains The dust overcame your world And your streams all dried up Long since faded into the ground It’s a dry and weary life Knees to the dirt Even the tears disappear so quickly Still our Lord promises this If you call upon His name The plains in which you walk Will be filled with His living waters To no longer thirst for more To be fulfilled by His love A gift for you and all your loved ones That’s the promise that He brings This drought will soon be over And then a new season begins
How did I get to this? Where did I go wrong? When did I let go? What hope do I now hold?
Why does this world keep me? What is there left I can give? Does this world really need me? Why is it too much for me to live?
In barren lands I find myself Face to the dust here I cry The only water here are my tears Is there any escape from here?
Hold on tight me friend The Lord will bring water to dry lands He rescues the lost and His children from pain And He can raise you from your depths Just hold on tight with all you have left For there is more in you than you know
(Part 1 of 7, Reflections of a Dark Day three years ago)
I, like so many are thankful for that journey from dry and parched lands, to lands of living water.
YOUR LOVE IS LIKE A RIVER by THIRD DAY Your love is like a river flowing from my heart
When this cruel world tears us apart Your love is like a river flowing from my heart When sharpened words have left their scars Your love is like a river flowing from my heart And it’s overflowing and showing us all How deep and how wide is Your love It never stops, it rages on Your love is like a river flowing from my heart
When I am tired and so afraid Your love is like a fire that will light my way When darkness comes and my vision fades Your love is like a fire that will light my way And it’s always burning and stirring my soul To know You and love You much more It never stops or ever fades Your love is like a fire that will light my way
IT’S NEVER GONNA STOP IT’S FLOWING FROM MY HEART IT’S NEVER GONNA FADE YOUR LOVE WILL LIGHT MY WAY
When all my strength and hope is gone Your love is like a rock that I am standing on
Your love is like a river flowing from my heart Your love is like a fire that will light my way Your love is like a rock that I am standing on Your love is like a river flowing from my heart
