The pain is great, where can I go?

I came to the store
I needed some supplies
I don’t know where else to turn
When my body is hungry, I feed it
When I am socializing, I eat
When I am stressed, I eat
When I am hungry, I eat
When I am bored, I eat
When I am tired, I eat
Do I need the food
My body doesn’t
My soul is hungry
Eating hides the pain
Eating is a way to escape
Taking drugs is a way to escape
Drinking alcohol is a way to escape
Then realization strikes-this isn’t an escape
I am only creating torturous gray prison walls
Where does life go when it starts to drain slowly away
Where can I go when my soul is craving a release from the pain

I am not alone
I am never alone
Run to the river of life
Ask my pastor for a guide
We are all in this prison together
Together we can share the keys to freedom
There is always one who knows how to tear down the walls
I came – I asked – I listened – I made a decision – I followed – I am free
My friends shared the keys to freedom that they found
They reflected God’s perfect love into my life
I am free – I am free – Thank God I am free

Freedom through love. John 3:16-17. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.”
