I hated the smell and despised the cost,
Abhorred each drag and the years it stole,
It announced to the world that I was lost
Every toke took a little piece of my soul.
One stupid choice I made years ago,
Made me a slave to my foolishness,
As a teen, how little did I know,
About addiction’s pure ruthlessness.
Then one day, the Lord set me free
My habit was no match for His power
He broke the chains that bound me
He is my fortress, and my strong tower.
If you are chained by some certain sin,
Make today the day you call out to Him.
“Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
and he saved them from their distress.” —Psalm 107:13
