RECOGNITION OF MY ADDICTION

With my addiction, the pain never seemed to end.
It has taken away my child, family, relationships, and friends.
I had become lost and couldn’t make it on my own.

I always thought of myself as a good person,
but without the drugs, I can now see what I have done.
And what my addictions had made me become.

I was doing evil deeds in every kind of way.
Because of the way I had been living,
my family bowed their heads in shame.
Because of my addictions and actions,
lives will never be the same.

So I made it back to a cell, and my head began to clear.
And I dropped to my knees, so full of fear.
I begged, “Please Lord, please, forgive me for my sins,
I let my addictions get a hold of me again”!

I’ve lost so many days as
I’ve strayed from your Godly path.
Lord Jesus, I ask for your forgiveness,
and not your wrath.

I pray for healing from my addictions.
And the strength and guidance to make it through.
And I know I will, as long as I follow You.

4/24/2017 – “Chasing Cars”

“Chasing Cars” – By: Snow Patrol 

“Chasing Cars”
We’ll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don’t need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don’t quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They’re not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life

Let’s waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads

I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they’re all I can see

I don’t know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

4/15/2017 – “Something Just Like This”

“Something Just Like This” – By Coldplay & The Chainsmokers

“Something Just Like This”
(with Coldplay)

I’ve been reading books of old
The legends and the myths
Achilles and his gold
Hercules and his gifts
Spiderman’s control
And Batman with his fists
And clearly I don’t see myself upon that list
But she said, where d’you wanna go?
How much you wanna risk?
I’m not looking for somebody
With some superhuman gifts
Some superhero
Some fairy tale bliss
Just something I can turn to
Somebody I can kiss
I want something just like this
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
Oh, I want something just like this
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-dooOh
I want something just like this
I want something just like thisI’ve been reading books of old
The legends and the myths
The testaments they told
The moon and its eclipse
And Superman unrolls
A suit before he lifts
But I’m not the kind of person that it fitsShe said, where d’you wanna go?
How much you wanna risk?
I’m not looking for somebody
With some superhuman gifts
Some superhero
Some fairytale bliss
Just something I can turn to
Somebody I can miss

I want something just like this
I want something just like this

Oh, I want something just like this
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
Oh, I want something just like this
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo

Where d’you wanna go?
How much you wanna risk?
I’m not looking for somebody
With some superhuman gifts
Some superhero
Some fairytale bliss
Just something I can turn to
Somebody I can kiss
I want something just like this

Oh, I want something just like this
Oh, I want something just like this
Oh, I want something just like this
