Verse of the Day – Proverbs 31:6-7

Proverbs 31:6-7

Proverbs 31:6-7

This is how I fell, I drank to forget all my problems, to release myself from my anguish and distress, until I got to the point where the need to drink was more than the need to live.

Thankfully the Lord saved me from this point, He told me I was needed more than I ever knew and that there was a life within worth living.

FROM THE DAY by I AM THEY
When You found me, I was so blind
My sin was before me, I was swallowed by pride
But out of the darkness, You brought me to Your light
You showed me new mercy and opened up my eyes

From the day You saved my soul
‘Til the very moment when I come home
I’ll sing, I’ll dance, my heart will overflow
From the day You saved my soul

Where brilliant light is all around
And endless joy is the only sound
Oh, rest my heart forever now
Oh, in Your arms I’ll always be found

From the day You saved my soul
‘Til the very moment when I come home
I’ll sing, I’ll dance, my heart will overflow
From the day You saved my soul

My love is Yours
My heart is Yours
My life is Yours
Forever

My love is Yours
My heart is Yours
My life is Yours
Forever

From the day You saved my soul
‘Til the very moment when I come home
I’ll sing, I’ll dance, my heart will overflow
From the day You saved my soul

From the day You saved my soul
‘Til the very moment when I come home
I’ll sing, I’ll dance, my heart will overflow
From the day You saved my soul
From the day You saved my soul
 

Reaching? – Psalm 36:5-6

Reaching? – Psalm 36:5-6

Is it me that has to reach?
Is it I who must pull down the mountains?
Can I ever part the clouds?
To see the love of heaven
Or am I just being human
So lost and so blind
For Your love reaches everywhere
There is nowhere I could hide
Your love reaches the heavens
It’s spread so far and wide
And I don’t need to reach for it
It’s already all around me

Psalm 36:5-6

Another Night, Another Day – Micah 7:8

Another Night, Another Day – Micah 7:8

Another night, another day
Another week passes by
Days to count, weeks to number
From the day I began to rise
There is no need to gloat
The bottle is forever empty
I’m no longer looking for answers
For it is I who has been found
Those dark nights of wanting
Filled by the Lord’s light
This addict is still fighting
Of each day he is proud
With thanks to my Lord
For the strength to keep rising
And the love to keep living

Micah 7:8

Micah 7:8

From The Vine – Isaiah 24:11

From The Vine – Isaiah 24:11

I spent many nights
In my own darkness
Where I cried out
For lack of wine
I had let is sustain me
Be my crutch in harder times
It had robbed me of my money
Took the dignity from my face
And I became so angry
When I couldn’t taste the vine
Then the Lord, He came calling
And told me there is a way
To walk out from this darkness
And break my chains to this wine
From that day I have never wanted
Never cried for the fruit of the vine
I found a new way forward
One with the Lord’s hand in mine

Isaiah 24:11

Verse of the Day – Revelation 3:21

Revelation 3:21

Revelation 3:21

Sometimes we just have to stick in there, it may seem hard, but we will be victorious and receive this promise of Christ.

I have been sticking in there for 2000 days now, because today I have been sober for 2000 days.

Some days I don’t feel like an overcomer, but everyday I am still thankful for the Lord’s grace and mercy for helping me make it this far.

THE CROSS HAS THE FINAL WORD by CODY CARNES
The cross has the final word
The cross has the final word
Sorrow may come in the darkest night
But the cross has the final word

The cross has the final word
The cross has the final word
Evil may put up its strongest fight
But the cross has the final word

The cross has the final word
The cross has the final word
The Saviour has come with the morning light
The cross has the final word

The cross has the final word
The cross has the final word
He traded death for eternal life
The cross has the final word!!!

There’s nothing stronger, nothing higher
Nothing greater, than the Name of Jesus
All the honour, all the power
All the glory to the Name of Jesus
There’s nothing stronger, nothing higher
Nothing greater, than the Name of Jesus
All the honour, all the power
All the glory to the Name of Jesus!

The cross has the final word
The cross has the final word
The Saviour has come with the morning light
The cross has the final word

The cross has the final word
The cross has the final word
He traded death for eternal life
The cross has the final word!!!

Verse of the Day – 1 John 1:9

1 John 1:9

1 John 1:9

It is now 285 weeks of sober freedom, He set me free from my addiction on that Thursday evening, that seems so long ago now.  My sins were set aside and forgotten, left in my past and He set me on a path to a better life.

NO LONGER SLAVES by JONATHAN DAVID AND MELISSA HELSER
You unravel me with a melody
You surround me with a song
Of deliverance from my enemies
‘Til all my fears are gone

I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God

I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God

From my mother’s womb
You have chosen me
Love has called my name
I’ve been born again into your family
Your blood flows through my veins

I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God

I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God

I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God

I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God

I am surrounded
By the arms of the father
I am surrounded
By songs of deliverance

We’ve been liberated
From our bondage
We’re the sons and the daughters
Let us sing our freedom

You split the sea
So I could walk right through it
My fears were drowned in perfect love
You rescued me
And I will stand and sing
I am a child of God.

You split the sea
So I could walk right through it
My fears were drowned in perfect love

Yes, I am
I am a child of God
I am a child of God
Yes, I am
I am a child of God
Full of faith
Yes, I am a child of God
I am a child of God

I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God

I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God

I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God
