Stephen King on Life, Hope and Writing

Just to change things up a little, I want to reflect on a few thoughts from the author Stephen King. I have been reading his wonderful book "On Writing", which is not only brilliant, but also incredibly candid. In his book, he shares how he got started writing and the 'lucky' breaks he had in his career. One of the things that struck me most was how persistent he was and how he continued to write, even though he hadn't "made it" as yet.  

Here are a few of his quotes (not all from the same book):

  • Remember, Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.
  • Either get busy living or get busy dying.
  • The scariest moment is always just before you start.

These all speak to me on some level, but as a Christian they remind us to always use the GIFTS God has given to us and to keep PERSEVERING no matter the obstacles that lie before us.

Hebrews 10:36 - You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
Living in Grace
