THE STORY

It's been a busy few days. I was able to get some real definite planning for my writing project accomplished on Friday, but not much else since then. I'll be glad when our homeschool year is completed so I'll be able to have some more time to concentrate on my writing. For now, I will be content with the time I have been given.

Yesterday during my pastor's sermon he said this, "Every good story is rooted in THE STORY." (Pastor Paul Tatum) I couldn't help but think about the truth behind this statement. I know with being interested in writing, I enjoy reading, viewing, or hearing a good story. A good story can stir our imaginations, but also cause us to look beyond ourselves.

A good story that moves us to emotion, is one that causes the viewer to be able to sympathize with the hero or heroine. I can't help but feel that God has built inside each of us the desire to learn more about how we can come to Him. Jesus' ultimate sacrifice on the cross for you and for me is THE STORY. No other story can compare to it. It is the hope that we have!
