Even Before – Psalm 139:16

Even Before – Psalm 139:16

Even before these eyes
Saw this world
Your eyes already
Knew me

Even before these feet
Too their first steps
You had laid out
The path before me

And even before I found
The courage to call on You
Your great love
Was with me

And even in the midst
Of all my despair
Your peace and healing
Were over me

Psalm 139:16

So Blind – Psalm 139:16

So Blind – Psalm 139:16

Have I been so blind?
To live out such a life
Not knowing who You were
And from where I came
You knew me before
Watched on as I grew
And You called out in vain
As my soul ran away
To darker paths
So far from the home
I was made to belong
Yet You rejoiced with the angels
When I made my way home
And now I know
Just who You are
And the love that You hold
And I thank You Lord
For all that I am
And all I will become

Pathways – Psalm 139:16

Pathways – Psalm 139:16

Before I came into this world
You saw me as I was unformed
Planning for me the days to come
The pathways to who I should be
All written within Your book
Your blueprint for every part of me
Did I follow the plan?
No I feel far away
Still You never gave up
You came to rescue me
Now I walk again
On the pathways before
With my eyes set upon You
On the way to who I’m destined to be

Psalm 139:16

Days

Days (Psalm 139:16)

Your Eyes
They never left me
Seeing from the beginning
My birth to my being
You saw through the darkness
To see the light inside
All my days
You have watched
And you knew the day
That I would call
You set the day
And the days still to dawn
All in the plan
You set forth for me
Now I see You
Now I hold onto You
And we will walk
The days set together

SoberDay 746

Okay, so if you have been a regular follower of mine for some time, you will know that I count every day of sobriety and indeed passing every week, you will also know that I hold my own little celebrations at significant milestone, 1 year, 2 years, 500 days, 600 days, etc, etc.  If you’re new to this site, then okay I can be a little weird from time to time also!

Psalm 90:12

Psalm 90:12

So that fact that today is SoberDay 746 doesn’t really seem that significant, but I’ve looked at the days ahead and I’m being to see something more than coincidence with my date of Sobriety, the 29th March 2012, just a normal Thursday, nothing special, just another day.

Then last year my one year anniversary just so happened to fall on a Friday, Good Friday, coincidence? Maybe! I thought so at the time anyway.  But it was a great day and a great way to celebrate.

But then earlier today, I worked out that my 750th SoberDay would fall on this coming Friday, Good Friday, another coincidence?  Maybe, but then again my 1000th SoberDay will fall on Christmas Eve, now I’m being to think differently.

Psalm 139:16

Psalm 139:16

So was Thursday 29th March 2012, just a normal day, when a troubled soul, just randomly decided to give up an addiction that had wrecked his life?

I’m beginning to think not, it wasn’t just a random day at all!

 So Friday will be a great day of celebration, once again in more than just one way and I for one can’t wait!

BLINK by REVIVE
Teach me to number my days 
And count every moment before it slips away 
Take in all the colors before they fade to gray 
I don’t want to miss even just a second more of this 

It happens in a blink 
It happens in a flash 
It happens in the time it took to look back 
I try to hold on tight, but there’s no stopping time 
What is it I’ve done with my life 
It happens in a blink (x2)

When it’s all said and done
No one remembers how far we have run
The only thing that matters is how we have loved
I don’t want to miss even just a second more of this

It happens in a blink 
It happens in a flash 
It happens in the time it took to look back 
I try to hold on tight, but there’s no stopping time 
What is it I’ve done with my life 
It happens in a blink (x4)

Slow down, slow down 
Before today becomes our yesterday 
Slow down, slow down 
Before you turn around and it’s too late 

It happens in a blink 
it happens in a flash 
it happens in the time it took to look back 
I try to hold on tight but there’s no stopping time 
What is it I’ve done with my life 
It happens in a blink

It happens in a blink 
it happens in a flash 
it happens in the time it took to look back 
I try to hold on tight but there’s no stopping time 
What is it I’ve done with my life 
It happens in a blink
It happens in a blink 
It happens in a blink 
It happens in a blink
