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.
Who is He? A name so revered A name above all others One to which we all will run In our times of great struggle A strong tower to all Where our souls become safe Our refuge in the storm And our peace in all times So who is He? Our God who loves us all
There is a place Beyond our scars Where mercy awaits us all A place where we can go When troubles come A place we need to be So let us run To the arms of the Father Let us run To the refuge He holds Where our troubles Shrink within the light Where grace and hope flow So when the storms come Let us run to the Father To the refuge within His arms
The storms may rage Outside these walls Let them bear down Upon this refuge The breath of the storm Will soon subside Tired and worn From driving at Your walls Nothing can come against This fortress that I stand Within the protection of my Lord My heart is at peace So let the storms rage For here I am safe In the refuge of the Lord What can come against?
Days become harder Our thoughts become clouded The stresses of life Lay a heavy burden Upon our fragile souls Our feet so tired We’ve travelled so far Now it feels we can’t go on Yet there is a place Our tired feet can call home The Father’s arms Our refuge and our shield A place to find peace Beside the glory of the Son A place for tired hearts To finally feel new
A view of the future Seen from the past It’s where I’ve been Yet not where I’ll return They set the traps Though You hold me safe Glass walls The temptation I turn from them all I run to You My rock My fortress To a place I feel safe And there I kneel Before You Lord And I commit my spirit To the hands of Your deliverance
We walk the world In the face of many storms We fight our way Through the heart of savage fires
The afflicted, the needy The poor and the broken
In distress we find a shelter Your refuge we always find The arms You place around us Become our walls against the storm There we find our rest When the chaos outside has died With Your strength we walk again
