I continually come to the realization of how deeply flawed I am. I'm a perfectionist at heart and if something doesn't work out the way I would like it to I tend to walk away or over work at getting the situation perfect. Neither way is a good way to handle any situation. I am learning though, with an abundance of grace that is given to me each day I wake up! I am also realizing that some things just don't matter in the grand scheme of life. If something doesn't go the way I want it to go it's going to be okay. Life is not going to come to a crashing halt. During my quiet time yesterday I meditated on a verse that shows me that no matter how flawed I am, I am loved beyond my comprehension! Psalm 139:17 17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!
I read recently on a twitter feed that hope is great but faith requires action. I can hope that things in my life change and things go well but if I don't step out in faith and put action to the things I hope for in my life then all I am doing is just sitting. I don't like doing that. Anyone that knows me well, knows that I do not like to just sit and do nothing. Recently though I have been doing a lot of "sitting" on what I hope for with my life. I decided that I can't just dream about what I want to do and then hope it comes true. I need to put some action behind that hope. I think in some parts of my life I had let depression set in. It's something I deal with on occasion and I have to continually look to scripture and realize that my life is not about me. It's about getting out of myself and looking towards others around me. It's time for me to stop being selfish and realize that the world is filled with people who need some one to come along side them and encourage them to continue in their daily walks with the Lord. I love encouragement. I love giving encouragement and receiving it. I believe it's one of the greatest things we can do to help others out. Just some thoughts of mine as I continue to realize I need to be writing more and working more on what I truly love... photography. I also need to stay connected to others as well. Hopefully my blog will be updated more on things I am doing and where God is leading me through each day. Today I added the Compassion International gidget on my blog. I sponsor a child and I think others should as well. Soon I will be sharing about other opportunities that I feel I am to start being apart of!
I am a follower of Christ. Passionate about missions especially overseas! I love photography and being able to use photography as a creative outlet. If you would like to email me you can at firstname.lastname@example.org
