I wrote this for anyone who has been through or is going through pain, and/or despair in their life. The picture in my mind is a back alley, circa post WWIII... desolation.  And even amid this, there is a future and a hope in Jesus.

In the ruins and the rubble
of a life that's crashing down
At the edge of my vision 
I caught a fleeting glimpse
There You stood in clothes like mine
The murky dust-filled air 
clung to Your skin too,
the acid rain burned into both our scalps.
I turned to You and fear melted off of me
In Your eyes a strength absolute
without waiver
I suddenly knew You had always been there
To feel what I felt
to see what I saw
You smiled then and hope began to fill my heart.
No more steps alone
Now in cadence together 
You take me through
Not away, not around,
But through.
