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.
Would we betray the Lord? To the haters in the garden We are not the Judas But do we betray Him still? With our actions With our sins Before the unbelievers of this world If the Lord is seen through our actions Then do we betray Him still?
In a moment of need At a darker time When nights were spent Disappearing within a bottle When all became lost And I cried out for help The Lord answered my call Opening the door to a new world Where the darkness ended And the bottle truly shattered To deliver me to something new
Spent so many years Denying who You are Questioning Your being When I should have been Questioning mine I know I wasted All those years But now I know You Know Your love And who You are I pray I won’t waste All my years to come
To Him praise As we may stumble Our feet never falter We never really fall Not to a place Where we could never rise again So praise His name For now and evermore For He halts our fall Catches our every stumble To Christ Jesus Be our praise
Our fear A punishment We place upon ourselves A feeling A thought A failing I can’t do this I’m just not good enough This just isn’t me With every thought We think like this We heap the punishment Upon ourselves But He came for us With His perfect love To put an end To our fear To drive it out Remove it all So when we feel like this That we’re just not enough Let’s try to remember That He loves us so And in this love We shall have no fear
The path you follow The ways in which you walk Are they righteous Or just a lie Are the steps in faith Or taken in indifference Love and gentleness Or anger and hate Could it be a yes and no Does it depend upon the day The mood The feeling Because I feel this too But we have to strive To endure all the seasons And break free from the mess To see it to the end This race we are to run This path the Father set us Just keep doing the best we can And we’ll make it to the end
As I sleep this night If the storm may arise Where dreams turn to nightmares And burn the mind behind the eyes If the storm clouds gather And the coldness of life comes closing in To touch the soul And chill it so Where the vitally of life slowly disappears If this shall come to pass Oh Lord watch over me this night And all the nights still to come Not letting me fall within this storm To lose just who it is I am Oh Lord stay with me through the nights Until I find the joy That will come from the morning
Though I may shake In fear and failing I know this I stand upon solid ground The Rock It’s never shaken It will never fall This Kingdom I am given These ramparts Behind which I stand My protect from it all My past My fears My failings For this I am ever thankful For this I praise Him so With everything within me With everything I am
