I am so broken - but He makes all things new

I have been encouraged these past few days. Tomorrow will be my last full day with Carra for a long time. I can now say that I am thankful for the Lord's provision in all of this and how it is panning out. Of course, it's not how I would've planned things, but shouldn't I thank the Lord for that too! Haha.

I should be finishing up a roll of film within the next week or two, so hopefully I'll have some fun things to share soon enough. I haven't been picking up my camera much lately. I've always been the type of person to begin to really like something, and see a spark of talent within myself, and then give it up when I see that others are doing it. Not because I think I'm "too cool" or whatever (or, honestly it could be a pride issue too), but because I feel like, why should I do it if they are doing just as good of a job at it, if not better? Help me Lord.

Anyways, just thought I would get a quick and positive blog on here to make up for my not-so-happy blog from last time. I'm not better. I probably never will be. But I am encouraged. And I thank God for revealing my brokenness to me and at the same time not leaving me in it.

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where Jesus, who went before us, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever.. [Hebrews 6:19-20]

I know exactly how you feel about doing something and then seeing others do it, that's why I resisted getting a blog for a long time...and why sometimes I still think about just never doing it again. But, be encouraged that you inspire me to keep doing photo stuff, because when I look at your work I can tell that you are just doing it because you love it...pure creativity...and it makes me not care about other people. Also, you are a trendsetter with this 365 thing! haha :)

I am currently struggling through a painful break up with my boyfriend and reading this as I cam across you has made me realise that even feeling broken is a lesson- thankyou.
