As you can see, I changed my blog, a bit. It was rather hard for me to keep the photographs a certain size. I don't know if I'll have it like this for a long while, but tell me what you think. Do you like a more fuller blog or a blog with a sidebar?
Anyways, I realize that I hadn't written in a while. I just have been so excited with getting so many new followers, that I wanted you all to see my style and what I am inspired by! I hope you have been enjoying my last few posts from this past week.
I have had a lot on my mind lately... having anxious thoughts about what the future could bring.. scholarships, new friendships, living on my own, even marriage or (dare I say it) children of my own. Even, things like, becoming the successful photographer that I have always dreamed about... What if it becomes just that, a dream? I am striving to be a better person each day, but even at those times, I fall short and I think... Will I ever get better? Will I ever become the person that God has made me to be?
I do not know the things that you worry or think about. However, there is one thing that I hope that you'll remember when you are disappointed or discouraged about certain things that could or are happening in your life.
I read this passage and I was encouraged because of the truth and the hope it brought. Here it is...
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.
-- Romans 5:3-5
ps: Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about my giveaway that should be coming soon!
