I am learning that I am pretty sure that I love photography more than I do writing! And I love writing! There is just something about being able to effectively catch the sunlight on a lake, a raindrop on a rose petal or an amazing sunset that only God alone could paint!
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words and I totally agree with that! Authors spend 10-100 pages just describing what could be said in one snap shot!
I also saw a cool saying that spoke volumes to me while perusing through Pinterest!
So many times in my life I have looked at the bad things that have happened to me or the wrong choices that I have made as a failure or my own weaknesses coming through so the world could see.
I have had what many people would consider negative things happen in my life but I am beginning to see how it has made me a stronger, more grace-filled and loving person.
2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,
[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds,
3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
And I love this verse in Romans! It has always helped me when I have stumbled and feel like I can’t get up. Or have lost my way and doubted God and his existence in my life.
“5 Therefore, since we have been declared righteous by faith, we have peace[a] with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2
We have also obtained access through Him by faith[b] into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in the hope of the glory
of God. 3 And not only that, but we also rejoice in our afflictions, because we know that affliction produces endurance,
4 endurance produces proven character, and proven character produces hope. 5 This hope will not disappoint us, because God’s
love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.”
All this to say that these past few weeks I have been taking more pictures with my little 3megapixel IPhone and loving capturing little God moments. It helps me to see that He still has my life in His hands and knows whats in store for me! He shows me each day through a sunset, the beautiful rainbow that appeared while at Niagara Falls, and through each and every picture taken that God is still God, God is still in control, and God loves me with an everlasting love!
Here are a few of my favorite photos that I have taken recently….
These are just the beginning of my many pictures that have spoken volumes to me in the past month or two. God has shown me so much everyday and I am glad that I can share it with others!
