I wrote this for the way the world is today, I have family and friends that have and still are addicts of some kind….#addictions #encouragement #Godiswithyou #wordsflowfreely #poetryforthesoul

I’m damaged, no good, washed up, alone. I’m sinking, drowning, buried in sin.

I lift the glass, love the taste, it takes a hold of me. Light it, smoke it, cloud your head.

The needle stings as it pierces my skin, the liquid inside burns as it courses through my veins.

I feel good for the moment, I’m high as a kite, makes all of my troubles disappear for the night.

I feel my choices by dawn’s early light, I need another fix, I can’t feel it’s too much.

I can’t escape my reality, I try and try with no prevail. I try to be good but again I fail.

My last resort is to sit and pray, please Lord come take me away.

I don’t like this life I lead, it would not make you proud. I feel shame, I feel lame, I’m troubled within.

I don’t want this torment of letting my addictions overcome me, I’m tired of being the junkie passed out on the floor.

Excuses of my life choices echo in my head, I can’t cope with the stress, I need to get high.

Where am I? I ask as I open my eyes, you are dreaming God says, as he’s carrying me, lifting me high.

You see I am with you wherever you are, you feel like a failure but child you are mine.

We will get through this, you are stronger than you think, keep your head held high.

You feel alone, full of dispair, but I gave my life for your repair. Come here now child, I love you so.

I’m by your side through thick and thin, so when in doubt and troubles are near, breathe deep, release and know that I am there.

Author: Matthew Winters (The Comeback Pastor)

Born and raised in Portsmouth, VA, I eventually landed in upstate SC because when God calls I move. I gave my life to Christ in 1987 and surrendered to the call to ministry in 1997. I am a three-time graduate from Liberty University and Theological Seminary: BS in Religion (2003), the MA in Religion (Leadership concentration - 2006), and the Master of Divinity (Pastoral Ministries - 2013). I have served as a worship leader and senior pastor in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia since 1996. After experiencing a divorce, God graciously gave me my wife, Jennifer, whom I married in September 2015. Between the two of us, we have 6 children. I am the Lead/Founding Pastor of Overcomers Church in Walhalla, SC, a church plant that is helping those who have been overcome by life to become Overcomers in Christ. Jennifer and I both love people and long to see them enter into a relationship with Christ and walk in the power of His Spirit. I pray that these thoughts I share will challenge and inspire you to greater heights and deeper depths for the glory of Christ.
