This is a poem I wrote back in 2003. I used to go to a lot of 12 step meetings trying to “find myself”. As a result of that, I put a lot of labels on who I thought I was. I was wrong. Today I let God define who I am.
These are my thoughts, and I do not intend to offend anyone going to a 12 step program. I did for about 10-15 years. It helped me for a time. I’m just saying, there is more. God can and will deliver us. There is healing and deliverance in Jesus Christ.
What if addictions were a lie?
What if the cravings – want to, got to have it,
What if the truth could set you free?
What is what is – is yet to be?
What if He’ll give you eyes to see?
The difference between lies and reality.
So stop, be still, He’s there.
Admit you can’t – He can.
He can – He will – He did.
He died for you and for me;
and paid the price for all eternity.
You’ve accepted that – confessed it too.
Now just be still.
Accept His Life –
He died to give it to you.
