Day 365 – Peace in God

30_DEC

“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

 


Day 357 – Beauty from the window

22_DEC

“Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever.” Psalm 136:26

(My little camera really broke… with only 9 days to go… and here I just can’t go and buy a new one… it is way too expensive… And I just can’t picture myself without a camera… I’ve been carrying my little one for over 6 years I guess… I have to use the pro camera that I have… But I’m scared to walk around with it here… I guess it would be a extra challenge that I’ll have to figure out how to conquer till the end… This is taken from my living room window…)

 


From Day 353 to Day 356

Day 356 – A new beginning

21_DEC

“…Put on your new nature, created to be like God…” Ephesians 4:24a

(I was at the airport waiting for my flight to go back home. When I found out that I didn’t get the window seat I made sure I had the shot for today… and with all this talk about the world ending today and since the sky was kind of dramatic, I took this picture! And my camera just broke after that… Let’s see what happens tomorrow…

Well, now I’m back home… Not really excited about it… Is good to be with family, but now is time to face reality and find the right path for my life… just like a new beginning…)

(Should I say anything else? – Sunset by the Araguaia River)

Day 354 – Grace

19_DEC

“But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.” Psalm 86:15

(I have to say that I had to Google Translate egret… I have no idea how it is called in English… Anyhow… what a beautiful bird… full of grace!)

Day 353 – Floating boat

18_DEC

“And God is able to make all grace abound to you, that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed.” 2 Corinthians 9:8

(Another great sunset…)


Day 265 – The waiting dog

“Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.” Romans 12:12

(I’ve been wanting to take a picture of a dog for quite a long time. It happened today! I had a short gap between jobs so I got my camera and went for a short walk around and found the dog patiently waiting for something I guess in front of the house… Well, it made me think about how is my patience level lately…)

 


Day 263 – The right way

“… “I am the way and the truth and the life…” John 14:6b

(Train track!)

 


Day 262 – Is changing…

“He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.” Daniel 2:21


Day 261 – He loves me forever

Real Abstract Project – Post #2

If God Loves Me, Can I Count on Him to Always Love Me?

“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you.” Isaiah 54:10

Fortunately, God’s love doesn’t depend on how well we love Him back. We don’t earn it, deserve it, or maintain it. God loves you at the top of the mountain, and He loves you equally in the depths of the valley. There is marvelous power, astounding power, supernatural power that comes when we cease our striving and simply begin to trust the rope—the infinite love of God. You need never let go of your hope because God will never let go of His love for you. ~ Dr. David Jeremiah

(It was around 5:20am. I was at the station waiting for the bus to go to work. To my right, I could see what would be the beginning of a beautiful day. Then I started to listen to music and randomly the first song that played was “I could sing of your love forever”. Well, I knew right there that today’s picture would be an “abstract” one… So, instead of trying to capture the sunrise, I capture what was in front of me while the song was playing… As if I was telling Him that doesn’t matter what I go through, I could sing of His love forever… Only He knew that throughout the day I would feel so sick (headache still as I write now…) that I wouldn’t be able to do anything else but lay in bed… The picture may not be that good… but what I felt this morning was… and I’m satisfied with that! And remember, God loves you. He always has, He always will.)


Day 260 – While they are still here…

“Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near.” Isaiah 55:6

(I went for a short walk this morning. I wanted to take a picture of a flower since they are not going to be around from now on… But I still want to capture their beauty before they are gone… It got me thinking about this verse…)


Day 259 – Morning rain

“You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.” Psalms 32:7

(I was under my umbrella at the bus stop on my way to work. Rain was pouring. I took a picture.)

 


Day 258 – Closer than a brother

“A man that has friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24

(When I take this bus after work I pass by this mural. It always catch my attention… And today was the day… The bus stopped and I took the picture… It got me thinking about my friends… I’m so thankful for the few friends close than a brother that I have… And I hope they feel the same way about me.)
