Script Details

Not long ago despair descended.
It came to rest on me like a bony crow.
Black and shadowy.
Its claws cut into my flesh.
Causing me to bleed.
It was heavy like a stifling blanket and
It drowned me in its depths.
I did not invite it in, nor did I know from where it came.
I used to be happy and knew that was my design, but
It had an atmosphere which sucked all hope from me with every breath.
It was thick, murky and all consuming.
It blocked my vision and gave no place to rest my feet.
I am unaware how long I’ve been drowning in this place.
Void of hope.
Void of light.
Somehow, from somewhere deep within me, came a cry not yet crushed by the grip of despair.
“Can anyone hear me?”
“Can anyone help me?”
Instantly, it was like a knife sliced through the darkness and a strong beam of light stung my eyes.
Was there more to life than despair?
And if there was, could it be for me?
Hope, like a thick rope was flung toward me through the beam of light.
“someone must have heard me!?”
“There must be someone who can get me out of here!”
I grabbed the rope. It began to pull me up, away from the darkness.
It drew me towards the light, towards hope and a life that could be mine…
As my eyes adjusted, I found Jesus on the other end of the rope.
It was His light that broke into my darkness and it was Him who pulled me from despair.
There is no depth He won’t go to and there is no despair beyond His reach.
