28 Jul My Heart and Hope
Have you ever been in pain so deep it placed a huge hole in your heart? If you don’t receive a heart transplant in time, you will die a slow, agonizing death. Pain infiltrated Hope’s heart and left her fighting for her life. She encounters the Holy Spirit who says, “Allow me to exchange your heart for mine.” Hope rejects the Holy Spirit’s offer and witnesses the terrifying site of Lucifer carrying human hearts in his hand. Lucifer dangles the hearts before El Elyon while making false accusations against the people of God. Hope soon realizes her chest cavity has a gaping hole where her heart used to be. Lucifer has stolen her heart, leaving her life hanging in the balance between Heaven and Hell. This is a story of pain, a story of love, and ultimately, a story of Hope.
“My Heart and Hope” is a play that opens wide the pain and hurts that can turn the heart in murderous and self-destructive directions if not surrendered to God. The author provides an unflinching and sobering depiction of the consequences of allowing your wounds to wound others rather than seeking healing and transformation through God’s love and forgiveness.
