Hope...Do You Believe In Your Future?

Wednesday, October 17, 2007

I've been on this unfocused future kick for a while but I feel that there is more to say.

Even when you feel your situation is difficult. Even when you feel that hope is gone. Even when you feel that you have been forsaken. Even when you feel that your joy just won't come.

Look for a clear path to those that will support you. The people that have been put in your path (life) to help/make you learn and to help/make you be strong. Its not all rose petals all the time but sometimes our problems are just to make us grow. Sure, we've all heard these messages before. But instead of just hearing, try internalizing the message and putting it to good use. Do you believe everything positive that you actually say or think? Or when times get rough do you kick all of your faith out the window?

As I lay on the ground taking this image from the back of a wedding (and I'm allergic to grass - can you believe that??) I shot this picture almost five times before I got the effect I wanted. What if I had stopped after taking image #1? Would I have missed it?

Sometimes we as humans stop short of our success and what we can truly achieve. We let a bad experience or someones words hold us just shy of our true potential. I just want to encourage you to continue surrounding yourself with positivity and looking for a brighter and clearer future that is sure to come. My days are not always that clear either, but when you look closely - as this picture would suggest - you can see the beauty of your struggles and rejoice for the miraculous person you will become after overcoming all of your hardships.

By the way, thank goodness I did not break out in hives after taking this picture in the grass. I promise to go to an allergist soon.

Be encouraged!

Thanks for the posting. I am at the point in my life when I need to hear that. I fear not reaching my full potential...I fear that God may and will open doors and I may be unaware. I need to rely on what's positive. Thanks!

God has truly blessed you with a gift. I live in Houston and my mom sent me the email of the engagement at the Ritz. My God what a gift you have for capturing the moment. I felt like I was there myself. You have encouraged me to keep pushing for my goals and dreams. I know I will see the fruits of my labor one day. I love to see successes like you in God because if He didi it for you He'll do it for me. God bless you my brother in Christ.

Just wanted to say that your message today was even more inspiring than your photos. It really gave me pause for thought. You are an incredibly gifted person and a wonderful expression of what we all can become if we allow ourselves to be used by God. I pray that He might use my life as beautifully as he is using yours. You encourage me and I thank God and you for that! Blessings, blessings, blessings and more blessings.

I've had your Photography site saved as a favorite on my computer for a long time now. But this is my first time I've read your blog. God bless you for using your talent in such an inspiring & uplifting way. I honestly do pray that when my engagement & wedding day arrives YOU will be there to capture it.
