A refuge in times of trouble

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of...

evil doesn't exist?

I numb my emotions with substances or distractions?

You are the good shepherd, the rock, stronghold, refuge, kinsman redeemer, protector, provider, prince of peace, all powerful, and so much more.

You have walked this valley before. You know what is coming and you will deliver me. When I say deliver, I mean you will see me through it.

And when I wince from the physical or emotional pain, your nail scared hand will wipe my tears.

And one day we'll look back on this death valley together and my eyes will soften, and a faint smile will cross my face because I will have intimate knowledge of how you sustained and carried me through fears, disappointment, death and what I never thought was possible to survive.
