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.
