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.
Hard times ahead From the bad moments of the past It forever keeps on coming At times only tears will fall When a soul feels it cannot go on But hardship is a discipline Where lessons come from the test Where the Father disciplines His children To grow them with each test So hardships will come But never more than you can take See it as a process of growing So embrace the tough times ahead
I have been tested Thrown deep into the fire I felt the heat rise Yet He never left my side Together we walked from the flames Into the freedom beyond
I was washed away by the flood As the tide charged down my path For a while I slipped beneath the waves Yet He was always there at my side Together we walked upon the waters Onto the golden shores beyond
When I fall to my knees With my prayers screamed out To Heaven above That’s when I find You there To pick me up Out of the dirt You place in me Your mighty strength To keep on keeping on
To persevere No matter what the trial To persevere No matter how great the pain To persevere Through the test of the storms To persevere Through the trials of the fight
You never leave my side My comforter in the night The bringer of joy With the light of the morning And rebuilder of this heart For the great things ahead So I’ll walk together with You And persevere through every trial
As I walk towards the mountain That stands tall within my path Casting dark shadows upon my soul I take this moment to look around To see behind me the mountains That we have already conquered For You are my Lord And I have trusted in You And together we defeated those giants So now I look to You For You are my Lord Now I trust in You And rejoice in my salvation So now I face the mountain With my head held high And with every step I take I will praise Your name Until I stand upon the top Of another fallen giant And proclaim once more Your victory
