I Look Back – Lamentations 3:19-22

I Look Back – Lamentations 3:19-22

Walked blindly
In a darker world
Addiction taken
The life I owned
Steeling the hope
And the light in these bones
In shadows shivering
As the fears fell
No smile
No laughter
Under addiction’s spell
Then the voice spoke
Just before the light came
To throw wide the shadows
To release all the pain
No longer down cast
The light consumed the soul
And now when darkness visits
When it fights for my heart
I look back to the moment
When the voice set me free
I may still see shadows
But His love brings me hope
With Him never consumed
When I have His unending love

The Day You Came – Lamentations 3:19-22

The Day You Came – Lamentations 3:19-22

In the darkest moments
At the end of my world
To the depths You came
To collect this broken soul
Miracles within those moments
As a dead man rose again
A tear I bring as I remember
The day that You came
And when my darkness returns
Where this soul is so downcast
I remember to those darker moments
When You broke wide my world
Where the light came flooding in
Still bringing a tear to my eyes
My soul is filled with hope again
When I remember the day You came

Lamentations 3:19-22

As the fifth anniversary of some of the most defining moments of my life approach, the moments where God broke through all my pain and my hurting, setting me free to live a new life, I remember all those feelings so vividly, all the pain and the tears, but more importantly I remember the moment I woke one morning and realised God had answered my prayer.

EVERYBODY HURTS by R.E.M.
When your day is long
And the night, the night is yours alone
When you’re sure you’ve had enough
Of this life, well hang on

Don’t let yourself go
‘Cause everybody cries
And everybody hurts sometimes

Sometimes everything is wrong
Now it’s time to sing along
When your day is night alone (Hold on, hold on)
If you feel like letting go (Hold on)
If you think you’ve had too much
Of this life, well hang on

Everybody hurts
Take comfort in your friends
Everybody hurts
Don’t throw your hand, oh no

Don’t throw your hand
If you feel like you’re alone
No, no, no, you are not alone

If you’re on your own in this life
The days and nights are long
When you think you’ve had too much of this life to hang on

Well, everybody hurts sometimes
Everybody cries
Everybody hurts sometimes
And everybody hurts sometimes

So hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
Everybody hurts
