Sometimes I'm asked, "why did you put that photo with that scripture?" Some of my choices are obvious, and some are more obscure. Sometimes I have an immediate idea of what photo to use or go shoot when I choose the verse, and sometimes I scroll through photos to see what speaks to me from my (large) library of photos.
I always hope in my choices to make you think a bit about the verse, the photo, and how it applies in your life ~ a starting point for meditation or prayer. If you ever wonder, please reach out.
For instance, yesterday's post was this:
The photo is of our veranda through a dirty sliding glass door in the early morning. It is full of shadow and light; the dark of night giving way to the light of day. There's a hint of a sunburst in the upper portion of the photo. Ordinary items such as the chaise lounges and potted plants are seen. The lattice post provides space for the light to filter through. There's a glimpse of the sliding glass door on the left.
"The Lord of Heaven's Armies is here among us..." yes ~ in the shadows, in the darkness, in the light, in the dirty, in the ordinary, in the inside and the outside; among all of us. "The Lord of Heaven's Armies is here among us..." May we be like the lattice and let the Lord's light shine through.
