(dreamed of walking through the jungle on a muggy, buggy, humid, damp, oppressive kind of day. Stumbled into quicksand and quickly dug myself deeper. Then I heard someone I could vaguely make out on the far shore telling me to “grab the rope”)
The noises of the jungle seem to echo in my ears
As I sink a little deeper in the quicksand of my fears
In the mire of self-destruction, the abyss of black despair
Feeling abandoned – like no one really cares.
I scream out to the silence, to the hot, unmoving air
“Won’t someone come and save me? Is anybody there!?!?!?”
Thrashing, struggling, gasping I try to make a way
Needing deliverance and strength for today….
Hope almost gone – no will to go on.
A quiet voice whispers–
(It seems like a song):
“Grab the rope, weary pilgrim, strength is gone.
Grab the rope of surrender, it is strong.
It can save you from destruction if you let your struggle cease…
I’ve come to deliver you and give you My peace
But you must surrender – accept what I’ve planned.
Grab the rope, weary pilgrim. Take My hand!”
