Weekly Photo Challenge: Habit ~ Click It

I've made a habit of clicking mine on before leaving to go anywhere

I’ve made a habit of clicking mine on before leaving to go anywhere

Habit is the challenge this week.  Of all of mine, clicking on my seat belt is one habit that I consider essential.  Since the data strongly suggest that they save lives, I don’t understand why it is not a habit for everyone.

However, seat belts are not one hundred percent in guaranteeing safety behind the wheel, even with defensive driving practices.  While on the road in an automobile, too many things can go wrong.

That is true in life, as well.  Every day, while out on the road of life, we face unknown hazards and uncertainties.  None of us knows what today holds, or have any guarantees that we will still be around tomorrow.  Only God sees what lies ahead.

Before I leave to go anywhere, I make a habit of clicking my seat belt in place.  However, at the start of every day, I also go to the Lord in prayer and commit my safekeeping into His capable hands.  He knows the number of my days.

God does ask that we use the good judgment He gave us, so I will continue my habit of buckling.  When it comes to my well-being, though, I place my trust in God.  Come what may, my life clicks better with Him.

“Do not boast about tomorrow,
For you do not know what a day may bring forth.”
Proverbs 27:1
NKJV

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Hue of You ~ Covered

The challenge this week is to “share a photograph with a prominent color (or assortment of colors) that reveals more about you.”

Red describes me perfectly.  My sins are covered by the shed blood of Jesus Christ. 

“Blessed are those whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.”
Romans 4:7

Weekly Photo Challenge: Saturated ~ Jewels

Saturated is the theme for this week’s Photo Challenge.  The concept is a photo saturated with color.

I found these colorful trade beads while visiting Africa years ago.  They would make lovely jewelry, but I have never strung them.

I had a little fun shooting the picture above.  I wanted the beads to look like they were floating in the sky, so I shot them placed on a mirror and made sure the reflection included the clouds.  The colors in the beads popped nicely and the mirror gave them a doubled look; hence, saturated with color twice over!

 Jewels are not necessarily diamonds.  They can come in all shapes and sizes. 
When I think of jewels, it reminds me of how God views His children.

God created us each uniquely.  After becoming His children, though, God calls us jewels.  To Him, we are like a colorful assortment of beauty, saturated by the presence of Jesus in our lives.

They shall be Mine, says the Lord of hosts, on the day that I make them my jewels.
Malachi 3:17

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour ~ Fiery

Fiery awesome

Fiery awesome

Say to God, “How awesome are Your works!”
Psalm 66:3

The “golden hour” for photographers is the first and last hour of sunlight of the day.  I have had a difficult time learning how to capture this golden beauty of sunsets, especially during those last few minutes before the sun sinks below the horizon.  Many of what would have been beautifully composed pictures lost their luster due to exposure errors.  Nevertheless, it was fun practicing.  

Sunrises and sunsets cause even skeptics to pause in wonder.  For those of us who know the Creator, though, when we gaze upon the splendor of such glory, we have no difficulties declaring along with the Psalmist, God, how awesome are Your works!

For a moment, the horizon ignites with fire,
As You brush the atmosphere into a golden hue.
With each new stroke, You decorate the sky,
And its blazing glory births wonder anew.
