I was lost on Sunday skipping church once again making excuses in wanting to sleep some more. I have had problems in sticking to my schedules on the weekend. And I certainly lose myself in the hobby of photography. I have been looking for a purpose in my passion. I may have run once again in the wrong direction. I was walking along the park promising my wife not to take another photograph in the exercise but I did once again bring along my camera and gear for companion and added weight for exercise in the lonely walk. At the end of the walk, I saw a pair of cute ducklings bundling up together while the bigger ducks gave them a difficult time around a small area. I couldn't help but breaking the promise to take a few shots of the ducklings.
In my passion for photography, I did seek His purpose to glorify Him that I am meant to honor Him and yet I couldn't accomplish. I have turned to the other direction wanting to seek recognition and approvals from others. And I explore the opportunity in whether I could use my skills as a freelance photographer to earn extra income for the household.
All those thoughts are in vain if I can't stick to my original goal in finding His purpose for my life, and glorify Him in my quest for His purpose and plan in me. He has placed the photography passion so dearly in my heart as I found relentless energy in getting close to nature and seeking the warmth, humanity, smiles and the best out of people in their daily lives. We all have an influence on other and pictures with the right motive touches life with a positive impact to share joy and sufferings in a unique way.
I am seeking help for the discipline and align my passion to His purpose. I felt lost like a lonely feather drifting without a purpose in the little pond where I found the ducklings. Lord, please guide me and tell me if I had done it all wrong that is against your purpose for me in the passion.
"When anything in creation
fulfills its purpose,
it brings glory to God."
