Nashville singer/songwriter Lisa Hentrich recently released a new single titled "No More." The song was released during Thanksgiving week and was co-written in Ireland during a music mission trip.
"Before we arrived in Dublin to write songs with local church worship leaders and musicians, we learned the story of how this area has suffered terrible devastation from Heroin addiction," Lisa shares. "My heart really went out to these people who have lost loved ones, in some cases multiple family members."
The story hits close to home for Lisa, as she has lost more than one family member struggling with addiction. "My great-nephew, Ryan was 24 when he lost his life to Heroin addiction," she continues. "I thought of him the whole time I was writing this song with Amanda Blankenship and [Dublin native] Alannah Curtis. All three of our families have experienced the ravages of addiction, and we each felt like this song was not only to honor our loved ones who lost their battle, but it is also a voice for others in this world trying to break free."
Lisa feels this song is not only "a declaration for abolishing addiction," but "it is also taking a stand against all of the devil's oppression. The Bible says the enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy, and there are all kinds of ways he does this. He attacks our health, our finances, our relationships, our values, our peace, and joy. This song is about taking back what the devil has stolen and declaring, 'NO MORE!' It's about coming into agreement with freedom in Christ and receiving all of God's promises for our lives."
