When I Hated Writing—Passion Renewed
I had lost my love of words. And I'm an award-winning author. The twist of a phrase, the meaning of a sentence, the passion of a story. Gone. Words are my gift, my passion. Writing is my art, my expression of Jesus's face—and the love was gone like a relationship filled with painful barbs and forgotten dreams. And in one moment the passion came back. Here's what happened. Connection with Christ My first communion as a child I had an idea for a personal act of remembrance. Childhood and Bible College evangelistic messages, Sunday School lessons, and revival meetings confirmed the thought—every sin I commit adds weight to Christ on the cross. It is your sin, Peter, that drove the spikes through His hands.
