Photo Hunt: Important



For this week's Photo Hunt, the theme is "important." This was a bit of a hard one because it's somewhat an abstract concept. It means different things to different people. So I was trying to think of what is really important to me, and the one thing I kept coming back to was my faith.

Unquestionably, the most important thing in my life is God. But how to take a picture of God? I mean, he doesn't exactly pose for photo ops, does he? So I decided to take a picture of the Word of God: the Bible. I could have taken a shot of the cover, but that's not really the important part. That's just the wrapping. The important part is what's inside. So I decided to photograph my favorite verse (which I've then digitally highlighted). So here you go:

It's Philippians 4:13 for those not familiar. The text reads "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." This one little verse has gotten me through so much in life. Anytime I think I just can't do something, and I'm about to throw in the towel, I remember this verse and with a prayer, I press onward. It's amazing how true it is. I really can do anything, face anything, as long as I draw my strength from Him. So that's my "important."

Stay tuned next week for old-fashioned.
