These last 2 days have been so restorative. I needed Paris and I needed church! I used all my deep, poetic thoughts yesterday 😄, so I am just going to list the things God brought to my heart today that was exactly what I needed to hear. Maybe you need to hear it too. .
1. Why do I live in fear when God is in control?
2. Why do I keep putting things and experiences and people in charge of my life?
3. Just because I feel something, doesn't make it the Truth.
4. "So I’ll trust Him with what comes next.
For the God I know is known for faithfulness." Hillsong - 'Hindsight'🎶
5. "but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint."
Isaiah 40:31 ESV
I do not know Theology and I am terrified of giving wrong answers or being a bad example, but the pastor today said something that changed the way I looked at being open about my faith. He said, "People don't need confrontation, they need conversation. All anyone is looking for is to be loved." I am so bad at this. I get so wrapped up in being PC or being afraid of doing or saying the wrong thing that it inhibits my ability to love. .
If you have made it to the end of this post (one day I will succeed in writing a short post!) and you need someone to talk to or someone to listen or anything... PM me. Seriously. No matter what you believe. No matter what's wrong. No matter if I have never met you. I want to help however I can. . #joygoesglobal .
Thank you to @hillsongparis for service today. It was exactly what I needed.
Photo Tip ☝️ When photographing others at sunset or sunrise on the beach, try a wide angle lens (17-24), f/8 aperture, ISO 400 and a 1/40 shutter speed minimum (presuming the person isn’t moving too fast). A warmer white balance setting like cloudy, overcast or kelvin 8000-10,000 will result in bolder reds and oranges. Compose your image so to capture the subjects full reflection / shadow plus a little more foreground space.
Jangan pernah takut untuk berkembang meski tantangan akan terus menghadang.
Niat dan tekad harus tetap seirama.
Raihlah mimpimu agar menjadi nyata.
Langkahmu akan menentukan. mimpi dan masa depan.
Buang rasa takut agar kau tak jadi pengecut.
Buang rasa malu agar kau tak jadi benalu.
Tak ada harapan yang kau gapai tanpa perjuanganmu sendiri.
Tak ada kesuksesan yang tercapai hanya dengan berdiam diri.
Mimpi hanya akan menjadi angan tanpa kau lakukan. .
