The shade of an overpass

 

The shade of an overpass is no place to call home

What went so terribly wrong

That you wound up sleeping here?

 

At times I wonder how close I got to your position

1 more bad decision? 2?

Maybe you had no choice, maybe you had to escape

 

When did hope leave

Did you ever know it?

Life can feel so heavy, it gets hard to even breathe

 

Look for the light, it is there even in the darkness

Hope is not dead my friend

It is just as available to you as it is me

 

Hope is found in freedom

Freedom in salvation

Salvation in faith

Faith in a choice

A choice to receive the fruit of

Ultimate sacrifice

 

Receive your true identity

God does not want to fix you

He wants to restore you

You are a child of the king

Born of His glory

You can do all things through him

Even if that sounds ridiculous today

Walk in the truth of who you are

 

Wherever you find yourself today

That is not it for you

We were all born for more

May peace, hope and love invade your world
