The Blinding of a New Saul
Apparently, he was a man of wild living, but after Joe Eszterhas was diagnosed with throat cancer, he did something that he had never done before: he cried out to God. According to the article, it was something he had never done before and didn't understand why he did it in the first place.
It is completely understandable, for when we are faced with odds that are bigger than a mountain, and have seemingly no where else to turn, it is then we are in the perfect position to be open to the grace of God. And the fact that this is the author of a major novel that really kicked off the modern era of soft porn as "R" rated movies is nothing less than a miracle. Now if only Sharon Stone would be blinded by the light...
We have to keep this in mind as we look at the pornified world and think that there is no hope. God is definitely working, wanting to bring His children home, and it is only the true Banquet of the Lord's Supper that is going to satisfy our longings for love. Let us persevere in prayer, praying for these men and women who have no clue about the meaning of their bodies and what they're really looking for.
And, as close to my heart, he gives major cudos to the long suffering Cleveland Indians, who are my team. It certainly is a lesson in patience and faith....One day...I'm not saying that they are necessarily going to the playoffs this year, but they have won 9 games in a row, so the season isn't over yet....Here's to praying for a miracle....
