Waterfall of Love


Lord I thirst for You

And the mountains tremble

Because God is in control

I found the waterfall of love

Yes I have sinned

Like everyone else

But God always takes me back

And my knees hurt

From praying so much

It is so easy to slip away

But I return to You

For a sunny day

Even the clouds look puffy

The sky looks clean

The waterfall is cleansing

Like a new day baptism

With YOU

I have been washed clean

The waterfall of love

“He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will

Flow rivers of living water” (John 7:38).

 

PRAYER

Heavenly Father, I will do Your will as best as I can—

I know You can help me be cleansed and washed by the power of Jesus

 

 

Newness of a Day


A new day

I am so excited

That I can live it

One minute-at-a-time

Enjoying and loving

God at the same time

The smell of the coast

And the pine trees outdoors

Confirm a God so sweet

Adds nature to our soul

That the birds and fish

Are friendly parts of His creation

Coffee cups bang against

One another

As we try and get ready

For work and school

Although our lives

Are recovering from abuse

Dysfunctional relationships

And co-dependency

Or addictions

 

MEDITATION

Today, Lord, I will meditate upon the Psalms or poetry—

Verses, which will make me cheerful and hopeful for a good life in Christ.

 

PRAYER

Dear Jesus, I give my heart to YOU, and will live for YOU, as I struggle day-to-day in this recovery process. I know YOU are with me every step of the way!

 

 

The Scarecrow


I am not afraid of some dumb scarecrow

That stands outside the window

He is only trying to warn the birds

Of outside forces

That don’t belong here

Yes, many people have suffered abuse

And I don’t like

Everyone judging

Victims of terrible abuses

I am not afraid of some dumb scarecrow

That stands outside the window

He is only trying to tell me

That I am being protected

I am being protected

And I can be safe

Forever in Christ Jesus

Find Him now if you are ready

 

MEDITATION

Today, meditate upon your personal protection in Jesus Christ; He will never leave you.

 

PRAYER

Thank You Father for caring for me and protecting me, I know I can always depend upon You.

 

 

Muddy Shoes


Muddy shoes

I have been to awful places

I have seen sinful faces

I was a drunk

I lied and cheated

I was not a good person

But then I met Jesus

I had muddy shoes

Walked in places

With dirty faces

I made many mistakes

But Jesus forgives sin

You can get a new life

Take off those muddy shoes

And come home to Jesus

 

PRAYER

Heavenly Father: I know You saved me from destruction and You are my dearest friend. Thanks again for comforting me and reassuring that I am accepted into your family.

 

READ SCRIPTURE VERSES

I John 1:9

Isaiah 55:7

 

 

You Can Change


A drunk falls to the ground

And she is miserable

Anyone can become

A terrible sinner

But God sees it

He is weeping for you

A gambler spends

The children’s education money

On gambling debts

Lies to his wife

And also gets drunk

But he can change

Jesus sees it

Jesus sees it

A prostitute can change

And a Bible story says so

You can change

Quit being a victim

 

PRAYER

Jesus, You know the pain & suffering I have experienced. Now I come to YOUR arms for help.

Thank you for being there for me.

 

 

Residential Treatment Center


Man, what a job I once had

Helping the people

At the center

Pouring coffee to shaking hands

Like people in a foreign land

So confused of God

Ready to find Him

Cleansed in His blood

Whether you go to church

Or find Him at a 12-Step Meeting

God is a Higher Power you can trust

Is so satisfying to drink the coffee

And read little hymnal books

Absorbing devotionals

Clutching a Bible for the first time

Singing songs of praise and worship

Maybe was once with God

But is time to come back

Yes, He can save you

Do not run from Him

Find a place of recovery

Find some new people

Read a new book about self-help

Gain some new education

Maybe go back to school

Or enroll in a Bible course

There is much to do

In a life of recovery

Yes, you can do it—

 

PRAYER

Thanks Higher Power for assisting me in finding spiritual growth and new friends and places to go, now that I have begun to recover.

 

 

Run From Depression


Anyone can be depressed

After living in dysfunction

Tormented by child abuse

Or living under an alcoholic’s roof

Or being a battered wife

There are too many abuses

And too many victims

But you must run from depression

It is a green tunnel

That is long and narrow

Like you cannot get out

With panic attacks

At 3 AM

It is like an obsession

Once you are there

So run from it

If you can

PRAYER

Dear God: Let me find help if I get depressed; I will contact a good friend to talk to—

I know I am ready to make an appointment with a counselor, pastor or doctor; the time has come to get out of this rut.

 

MEDITATION FOR TODAY

“Looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ” (Titus 2:13). The LORD is my hope!

 

 

Help is on the Way


Forget what happened

Start over

Because help is on the way

His name is Jesus

Or you can choose a Higher Power

If you do not understand Jesus

But sooner or later

He will emerge and

Show Himself to you

Because 12-Step Programs

Offer a God of

Your understanding

And

Help is on the way

Choose Jesus as

Your Higher Power

He will give you

A strong tower

To hold onto

Help is on the way

PRAYER

Jesus, I wish to know You even if I do not understand You right now.

 

MEDICINE

Jesus can be the best medicine—He is the Great Physician

 

 

A Story of Drunkenness


What a mess it was last night

You even got into a fight

The neighbors came out

And you screamed and shout

You did not know what you were doing

It was awful

You were a handful

Cursing and swearing

Kicking the trees

Fell down on your knees

Even said there was no God

There was blood on your shirt

And at the bar you seemed to flirt

Going into places of evil

The car was all banged up

The headlights were knocked out

You seemed to lose another job

And went to the race track again

Ignored your children

Called them horrible names

And you wanted more beer

You even smoked a bad cigarette of some sort

Saying it was a legal herb

Then you fell down on the ground again

Cursed everyone is sight

You sure put up a fight

With yourself

MEDICINE

This individual sure needs some medicine and His name is Jesus

HELP SOMEONE TODAY

Refer them to a Christian counselor

 

 

Pet Therapy


Only a bark away

A nice Labrador

Wags his tail

And is your friend

With unconditional love

Salivating and navigating

Through life’s storms

The dog can help you

He can lick your wounds

Take away your depression

Cuddle you with love

Give you a new outlook

So don’t kick the dog

He is your therapist

He wants to sit in your lap

It is O.K. to tell him your troubles

 

MEDITATION

I will meditate upon Noah’s Ark and the animals it contained (Genesis 6-9)

 

PRAYER

Heavenly Father, I know you are the great Creator and you made all the animals; surely they can guide me to You. A warm animal often provides companionship in a time of need!

 

 

Praise Him


“But I have trusted in Your mercy; my heart shall rejoice in Your salvation. I will sing to the LORD, because He has dealt bountifully with me
.

(Psalm 13:5-6)

“Therefore I will give thanks to You. O LORD, among the Gentiles, and sing praises to Your name.

(Psalm 18:49)

“But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed.

(Acts 16:25-26)

“Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for You are my praise.

(Jeremiah 17:14)

 

 

Quit Using


Admit you cannot use drugs or alcohol

Admit you are a sinner

Acknowledge that addiction is a disease

Attend a Christian gathering or church

Go to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting

Find a counselor

Other family members need counseling also

Make amends

Tell others you are getting help

Finally forgive yourself

You can be free in Jesus

Live One-Day-at-a-Time

Call someone if you have the urge to drink or drug

Depend upon a sponsor at the meetings for support

Read the assigned literature at the meetings

You can also find help in the Bible

 

 

More to Life


There is so much more to life

Than using drugs

You can have a new life in Christ

Can find a new job

Do volunteer work

Begin to exercise

Make new friends

Find a wife or husband

Find a boyfriend

Get a girlfriend

Find Jesus

Do something you want to do

Go back to school

Find a new hobby

There is much more to life

Now that you are off drugs

PRAYER

Heavenly Father, help me to find the way.
