While standing on the wall, looking out into the horizon and thinking about the horror that was about to come, the Lord told Habakkuk to write it down and make it plain so he may run who reads it.
And he did so.
But are the people running?
After writing for a few years, mostly odds and ends sort of material, nothing which jumped out at me, I got an idea to write a story, hoping to grab people’s attention. I wanted them to read it. I wanted them to be impacted by it. I wanted people to escape the future they were walking. I wanted people to change direction and run as fast as they could to safety.
That story was Abyss.
I am not certain that story did very much good, but my goal hasn’t changed.
Since then I have improved as a writer and as a man and a believer in Jesus Christ, all to his grace and confident that the work he began in me will continue until the day in which I see him.
I hope that whatever I bring forth will echo the seriousness of the days of Habakkuk in light of what is happening today and serve the purpose of making he who reads it run with fear into the arms of the Savior.
And the Lord answered me: Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.
