En Hollywoodförfattares Damaskusomvändelse

Fick denna berättelse i mailboxen idag...som påminner om hur Saul blev Paulus...

Den rekommenderas till ALLA - men särskilt varmt till er som funderar över Guds existens och om det finns mirakel....

Här ett kort utdrag - läs hela artikeln via länken ovan:

"Eszterhas grew up in refugee camps in Hungary during World War II before living in the back alleys of Cleveland. It was there that he worked as a police reporter racing to cover “countless shootings” and “urban riots,” he told the Toledo Blade.

At the time, his life was very dark—one filled with death, murder, crime and chaos. He describes his writing as equally dark and also “sexually graphic.”

During the summer of 2001, Eszterhas was diagnosed with throat cancer. His doctors worked to remove 80 per cent of his larynx and told him to immediately quit drinking and smoking. Eszterhas was 56. He lived a wild lifestyle and knew that changing his habits would not be easy.

His Conversion

On a day Eszterhas describes as “hellishly hot,” he was walking through a tree-lined neighborhood when he realized he had hit rock-bottom.

Eszterhas described his frame of mind: "I was going crazy. I was jittery. I twitched. I trembled. I had no patience for anything. … Every single nerve ending was demanding a drink and a cigarette.”

He sat on the curb and began to cry. In between fits of crying he began to pray, “Please God, help me.”

He hadn’t prayed since he was a child. "I couldn't believe I'd said it. I didn't know why I'd said it. I'd never said it before," he wrote."

Bloggen har just bytt header från en lite abstrakt filtrerad 8-bladig blåsippa till detta aftonfly....

Det lär bli en blogg i ständig förnyelse....
