Overcome the Odds
I chose the titles for these blog posts several weeks ago, so it surprised me when I pulled this one up today. This morning I got the pleasure of delivering the goods from our coat and blanket drive at work and church. I saw a lot of needy people - people who life had dumped on in one way or another. People who refused to give up. The odds were stacked against them, homeless, hungry, cold, lost and alone. And through the blessed efforts of Lutheran Social Services, they had a place to go, and a meal served by people who care. It was a true blessing to me to be able to see the heart of Jesus at work right in front of my eyes.
When your characters are faced by overwhelming odds, do they just give up and die (not a good story) or do they fight back? Do they need a helping hand by someone who cares, or do they go it alone? What obstacles do they need to meet or conquer in order to reach their goal?
Adversity is part of life. How you address it is what shapes you as a person, or a character.
See life differently.
