Real Abstract Project – Post # 4
If God Loves Me, Why Can’t I Always Believe It?
“This,” said the Lord, “is so that they may believe that the Lord, the God of their fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has appeared to you.” Exodus 4:5
One of Satan’s most effective strategies is to undermine our understanding of the love of God. He knows that as soon as we stumble or encounter painful obstacles, he only needs to whisper to get our attention. ~ Dr. David Jeremiah
(I knew since yesterday that today’s picture would be an abstract one because I wanted to take this kind of picture today… So, I did!)
“… for God is love” 1 John 4:8b
(Ok, I would like to introduce you to my new project that I’m finishing up putting together now as I write! Pablo Buitrago, a fellow blogger posted his #261 post and I had it stuck in my mind… I thought it was a cool idea and that I would somehow come up with something similar… I guess today is the day! Well, first of all I love the idea of abstract… I’m mainly an abstract painter and I get it you know… Is like the beauty of hidden feelings type of thing for me… So, in this project I’ll be shooting abstract things… I’ll let myself loose and try to see the abstract within the real… I will also let myself crop the images in addition to adjusting the levels and that’s all for editing… Now talking about the verses that I plan on post… I was doing some research and ended up on Dr. David Jeremiah’s website and he has a new book called “God Loves You: He Always Has—He Always Will” where he will answer these kind of questions: If God Loves Me, Why Can’t I Feel It? and If God Loves Me, Why Do I Run From Him? and more… So basically is about God’s love for us. Now, how does the abstract idea of the photos tied with God’s love? Well, I think that we know that God’s love is real but sometimes it seems so abstract to us that we just can’t figure it out… and let’s face it… we all go through that at some point in our lives… I’ll also let myself loose here and post about it when I feel like and I just ordered the book now so I have to wait till it comes… So, I guess is not only about the concept of God’s love with the abstract idea but also is about me getting loose in many aspects! Believe me… I need these 3 things at this time… Let’s see how it goes… I just need a name for it… Any ideas??)
