Faith

I believe whole heartedly in the Lord Jesus Christ. He is my personal Savior. Hallelujah!

I am not ashamed of that in any way, shape, or form. I know that people have the freedom to believe what they choose and that some people have never been able to cross this divide between sin and salvation. Some believe very strongly that God does not exist. Can not exist. I am very grateful that this is not my own personal situation. Some people believe that the “laws” of science prove that God does not exist or at least do not prove that He does exist. How sad. To put one’s faith in laws that are natural without any respect for how the laws came into their own being is amazingly sad.

In fact, speaking in scientific terms, the mathematical likelihood that there was zero intelligent influence over the designs of the universe and our very being is so ridiculously low that it requires amazing FAITH to believe that God does not exist.

Anyway… I do not mean to nor do I wish to engage in a great debate over theism and atheism. I simply wish to express my profound joy in knowing that the Lord Jesus Christ died for me and rose from the dead to ascend to His rightful place in the Kingdom of Heaven. Knowing Him more personally each and every day keeps me wrapped up in the peace which passes all understanding. I can say that without His never ending love, life would be different. Because of His love, I love my wife more and more each day. Because of His love, I love my kids more and more each day. Because of His love, I love Him more and more each day.

It puts great joy in our hearts to know that when we meet people in our daily walk, whether it is in the course of doing business in our photography studio, or at a wedding, or at a concert, or at the grocery store, or in a coffee shop, or wherever it might be, that we can pass on even a small glimpse of that love…

God’s great glory shines brightly through His creations!

May we always remember that we should seek Him first and His righteousness. By going boldly to the throne and asking for His grace and mercy, we can receive it. In receiving it, we will have it when we require it… to resist temptation, to endure trials, to suffer persecution for His name’s sake, and so much more.

At the end of our church services, we sing a simple blessing that is from Numbers 6:24-26:

May the Lord bless you,
May the Lord keep you,
May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you.
May the Lord lift up His countenance and give you Peace.

Indeed. May He give you Peace.
