Confident Hope

IMG_1707

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!
