Or is it even more...perhaps we're searching for answers in disguise. Building up a storehouse of possibilities to get us through the next storm or learn how to open our eyes to see the gifts that truly do exist around us.
Just maybe we're example driven people. We need to see how others might handle a similar situation so that we can shift our response the next time something comes our way, beit humbling or gracious. And be proud of ourselves for doing so.
Fiction is a powerful tool to build character. Writers create characters and story out their imagination, but even more importantly, writers can influence who their readers become through the characters and story they create.
What stories do you yearn to read? What stories do you wish to write?
May the weekend bring you fiction that speaks to your soul and makes you a better person from that moment forward.
Surrendering to Him,
