I lift up my eyes to the hills–where does my help come from?
It rained a few days ago…a rarity for Southern California since we only get it a few times per year. One thing that has always brought a smile to my face is the very fact that–it always looks so amazing when the sun starts shimmering through the curtain of clouds right after a refreshing shower of rain. Colors are more saturated and the remaining moisture makes everything around you glisten. Every photographer's dream come true–in these areas anyways :)
Sometimes in life, we really just get caught up in all the things we have to accomplish and worry about…and for me this past week definitely has been one of those times. I always get so blinded by all these things flying by my face that I forget to be still and remember who's in charge of it all. I forget that, in reality, I am powerless. Everything I do, I can do only through the power and opportunities that God has given me. It is so very important sometimes to just take a step back and give God the chance to reel me back to Him. In doing so, I have always found a rejuvenated sense of peace and calmness–much like the stillness that follows a thunderous storm.
