Once upon a time she used to be an alcoholic
Any and everything would make her tick
She was lost in vulgarness
Believing she is in holiness
But God, he took it away from her
Delivered and made sober
She thought that’s all she needed saving from
Oh little did she know what would come
She had a desire, dreams and an aspiration
Shared it freely in great faith by communications
There was one lurking for that very thing
A way to rise up in false teaching
She fell for it instantly, taking the bait
Soon her life turned from love to hate
She lied to herself, calling evil good
Stuck on her desire that someone would
But that someone didn’t have the same intentions as her
Her disobedience to not get involved, caused her to suffer
She took that strong drink of just a single lie
All the while God said no or you’ll die
The enemy was slick and pounced on her like prey
She fell in deceit, in a delusion from that day
She listened to a man rather than God’s voice
Hidden in guilt, trapped in her choice
Every manipulation and drunkeness kept her going back
Believing it was of God, but it was the onslaught of evil’s attack
It took many years before she finally broke away
Finding herself a drunkard in all he would say
She saw herself and how she lost control so quick
Anger openly raged as when she was an alcoholic
She would shout out liar but she was the one
Lying to herself, from what she had done
She ignored God and didn’t obey
Though she believed, it was deceit all day
She’d cover for him and kept returning
Fighting for what was not hers from the beginning
He knew this, what she was all about
Used it against her, using God’s word to not let her out
He twisted God’s word to please himself
But so did she, when she took that poison of lies off the dusty shelf
Sick and weak, falling lame
She had enough, hated who she became
She was truly going to die from all the violence she seen
It wasn’t worth it no more, she had to come clean
Throwing down her desire like a liquor bottle, crushed and shattered
Escaping with her life and that’s all that mattered
1 Peter 5:8-10
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
1 Corinthians 15:55-58
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
