These Bones Shiver – Romans 6:11-14

These Bones Shiver – Romans 6:11-14

These bones shiver
Beneath it’s pull
As fingernails stripped
The skin from the bones
A mind rang
With voices of desire
As the bottle stood waiting
So weak a spirit
No resistance to give
Addiction led to sin
And all to near death
Until the Lord’s voice
Rang true within the mind
The bottle lost it’s pull
To a new spirit within
To fight the sin of the past
Resisting the sin of tomorrow
The bottle was smashed
Long ago
When a new being rose again
His grace runs through my all
As I died to myself
Sacrificed with my Christ
So in mercy I could rise again
No longer these bones shiver
I am alive
In my Christ
My strength
All wrapped up in Him

Verse of the Day – Psalm 18:31-33

Psalm 18:31-33

Psalm 18:31-33

It’s three hundred weeks since I last had an alcoholic drink, back then I didn’t think I would have the strength to resist it pull anymore, that was until I began to accept the presence of the Lord and praying to Him, from that moment things began to change.

Then that night three hundred weeks ago I finally found the strength to say no more!

STRENGTH by JONATHAN DAVID & MELISSA HELSER
I climb up high above the tree line
‘Cause I want to see Your face
The mountains high, and the valleys deep
But You’re waiting there in the clearing
With fire in Your eyes
Fire in Your eyes

You wash me clean, with clear bright water
Running down my soul
You clothe me in the oil of laughter
And joy begins to take control
Like fire in Your eyes
Like fire in Your eyes

Strength
You give me strength
You lift my weary heart
You’re the fire in my veins
Strength
You give me strength
You raise me up again
I will never be the same
Strength
You give me strength
You lift my weary heart
You’re the fire in my veins
Strength
You give me strength
You raise me up again
I will never be the same

Oh You, God
Never grow tired or faint
You’re never gonna change the way
You love me, Jesus
And Your love
Knows no height or depth
It knows no length or width
And it’s changing me

Oh You, God
Never grow tired or faint
You’re never gonna change the way
You love me, Jesus
And Your love
Knows no height or depth
It knows no length or width
And it’s changing me

Oh You, God
Never grow tired or faint
You’re never gonna change the way
You love me, Jesus
And Your love
Knows no height or depth
It knows no length or width
And it’s changing me, again

Strength
You give me strength
You lift my weary heart
You’re the fire in my veins
Strength
You give me strength
You raise me up again
I will never be the same

I see You on the cross
I see You in the grave
I see the pain and tears
That You freely gave
I see You standing up
I hear You call my name
I see the fire in Your eyes
I see the fire in Your eyes
I see the fire in Your eyes
I’ll never be the same
I’ll never be the same
I’ll never be the same…
 

Verse of the Day – 1 Timothy 1:12

1 Timothy 1:12

1 Timothy 1:12

I remember the night I made my first prayer, I prayed only for the strength to get through, I was then an alcoholic looking for a way back to life, I had made it through the night without drinking and I thanked the Lord for that peace and asked for the strength to break the habit.

Over the coming weeks the habit was broken, at times it was hard, but I kept praying for that strength and He kept answering every prayer.  That was back in back in March 2012 and that strength has been with me ever since.

NOBODY LIKE YOU by RED ROCKS WORSHIP
You speak and waters crash upon the sand
The oceans push and pull at Your command
You hold the moon and stars within Your hands
And all with just a breath, the world began
We sing…

God, there is nobody like You, God
There is nobody like You, God
And there will never be
There will never be anyone like You, Jesus

When nothing we could do would be enough
From Heaven’s highest place, You reached for us
My sin and shame forever overcome
Oh the grave was overwhelmed by perfect love
Yeah, we sing…

God, there is nobody like You, God
There is nobody like You, God
And there will never be
God, there is nobody like You, God
There is nobody like You, God
And there will never be
There’ll never be
There will never be
Anyone like You, Jesus

‘Cause Your Name is greater, than any name I know
Your Throne is higher, than any other throne
You are the Author, the Creator of it all
You stand alone, You stand alone

Oh God, there is nobody like You, God
There is nobody like You, God
And there will never be
God, there is nobody like You, God
There is nobody like You, God
And there will never be
There’ll never be

No one like You
There’s no one like You

There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You, God
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You, God
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You, God
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You, God
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You, God
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You
There will never be anyone like You, God

Passing Of Time – Hebrews 4:15

Passing Of Time – Hebrews 4:15

I know the time is hard
I am worn by it’s passing
And I call out in my falling
Still I know that He hears
He who was tested in the wilderness
Put to the cross by the hand of man
Yet still He was ever pure
Never falling to man’s sin
So this time may pass so slowly
Feeling that this will never pass
But my Lord, He knows my pain
He holds all of my weakness
And He gives me strength
He gives me all I need
To see me through this moment

Stir Within Me – Ephesians 3:16-17

Stir Within Me – Ephesians 3:16-17

Now the darker moments
Have fallen upon myself
I can hear His voice
Above all my chaos
A promise of the divine
Of His glorious riches
That will strengthen me
As I approach these moments
He will be within my heart
Even when my soul feels empty
He will stir within me
So I will know He is here
And whatever the dark  moments bring
He will fight and conquer my fear

In My Salvation – Isaiah 12:2

In my salvation
I stand before
The Lord who stemmed my fall
A new heart beats within
That my Lord blessed we with
Together with His great strength
So by His side I can live again
In Him I place my trust
And I thank the Lord of my salvation
For this amazing grace
He showers upon this wretch
So I can stand
Before this world
To tell them all
Of the glories of my Lord

From Weakness – Zechariah 10:12

You have seen my weakness
In the darkness fall
You heard me lying on this floor
Crying for it all to end
Still in the mercy of Your love
You brought me strength anew
To raise me from my downfall
Setting me in pastures new
In Your light I praise Your name
In Your glory I live secure
And in Your strength I fight forevermore

It’s to the Lord
That I hold

Then I know
I will never be overcome

Call My Name – Isaiah 40:28-29

Call My Name – Isaiah 40:28-29

Maybe you do not understand
Why you go through what you do
I know you are tired
I feel your weariness
Yet my Father will never tire
His strength is here for you
Waiting for you to turn to Him
Just call upon my name
Call loud or whisper quietly
Just say my name
And feel my Father’s strength
Build within the fortress of your heart
You will never be alone
We are always here
We will never leave you
So just turn to the Father
And call upon my name

Heart – Psalm 73:26

Heart – Psalm 73:26

Days will go by
And I feel my heart fail
Buried deep below the feelings
From where I feel I can never recover
Dragged below by desires of the flesh
Then the night comes
My pains turns to prayer
And in those words I hear
I feel His strength reach this heart
In the night He is my portion
Saviour of my lonesome heart
My hope to face the new day
With a strength to see it through
Where this heart beats stronger than ever
And the Lord and I take new steps together
