Wine into Water
I have a confession to make. I am not really a country music fan. However in September I heard a song called Wine into Water. It was written by a man named T. Graham Brown. So many of those that we know have either dealt with addictions or alcoholism or known a family member that has loved ones dealing with it.
This song blew me away. The lyrics are as follows:
You've heard a multitude of prayers on my behalf I pray one more is not too much to ask I've tried to fight this battle by myself But it's a war that I can't win without Your help
Tonight, I'm as low as any man can go I'm down and I can't fall much farther And once upon a time, You turned the water into wine An' now, on my knees, I'm turning to You, Father Could You help me turn the wine back into water?
So many times I've hurt the ones I love I pushed them to the edge of giving up They've stood by me but how much can they stand If I don't put this bottle in Your hands?
I encourage you if you are going through it or have a loved one struggling, keep holding on to hope. My sister dealt with a nearly 20 year opiate addiction and has been clean for well over a year. People can change. God still does miracles.
