Right now I feel like a minnow- a glowing minnow. For years I prayed for God to show me which gift he was going to give to to and expand upon.
For years I’ve sought several “dreams” and have almost made it to fruition, but somehow everything I pursued was disrupted and put into a box and stacked in “the attic.”
Photography was never something I thought would be anything more than a hobby- after all there are “oceans” of photographers trying to make their names to some sort of platform to become known and profitable. I’m truly a minnow in comparison and that’s a dream for unrealistic dreamers…or is it?
God works in mysterious ways. I wake up most mornings in a state of amazement as I reflect upon the past year and realize where God has brought me today. I’m sitting here, on the brink of being overwhelmed- the photographer for a pro football team, for an emerging musical artist, for my church, and more….
I need to be the wisdom of Proverbs 31:26 and “laugh at the days to come.” …Not shrink down in fear.
My fervent prayer is for the focus and faith to stay firmly planted in God’s grace as I take my anxieties strait to Him- not taking the round about approach of trying to do it on my own.
One of the greatest struggles: time. I don’t seem to find enough time- which leads to frustration. As a minnow, I need to lean on God and ask him for help with my children, my wifely duties and the long list of everyday to-do’s, as I step out from solely being the stay at home mom.
My current prayer is for wisdom and balance. I’ll leave it at that, for now.
Praising & Reaching for God,
