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.
I write to spread the word The aroma of who He is I write for my voice is quiet My fear holds back those words In part I have broken that so I can write And spread His word as best I can And in this way I continue to share As long as someone maybe listening
After all the chaos All the pain I caused myself The sleepless nights And all the tears I sleep, I sleep Through the peace of the Lord I wake, I wake Through the strength of the Lord I live, I live Through the grace of the Lord
Did they believe The words He spoke Could they understand What was to come They were with Him Walked by Him And ate with Him But they still couldn’t see The vision of what was to come The death The resurrection In which we are a part Still they couldn’t understand And what about me If I was in that group Would I believe Would I understand Could I see the vision But all became so As it is written And we are born again BY what was to come
We have been trusted To rebuild His temple A temple of faithful Faithful to the Lord Here upon His earth Trusted to build Not to tear down Trusted to carry out works Not so shy away And if we have been instructed To build up His people The knowing and unknowing The faithful and the lost The family and the lonely Then let us not waste it That which is within us Given to us To do our part To do our best For the kingdom before God
Is this the world we live in One to which I once belonged A stubborn generation Of hearts not loyal to God If only they would know If only they could find what I found A God who love His children Regardless of the mess they become They could find Him waiting For His children to come home To be a part of the world that understands What the love of God can mean
And every time This broken mess Cries out again Of open heart With my praise He, our Lord Never turns away He always listens He always answers He has never rejected My cries or prayers He has never removed His love for me Love for this broken mess
And if all seems lost You’re alone and afraid There’s a place you can go Where He waits for you In Him is the great mercy And ever greater love Through the resurrection You discover a new life And all the loneliness Will than just fade away
She’s alone She’s lost Thinking a world Hates her She’s been told No one’s coming No one Can save her She hurts herself Over again To try to Relieve her pain She doesn’t know There is One One to whom She can run A refuge A fortress For all who Choose to see Will she find Him Before it’s too late? Before the street Takes another name And erases it From this world?
And now I can see That even before In all those times Before I even knew His name He was always there Even in the dark times When death seemed a way out He was always there And even though I never knew it He gave me strengths to carry on He was always there Now I Know that this is true Nothing can separate us From the Love of Christ He is always there
