I’m slowly learning…and embracing…my journey. It has taken me many years to hear this truth: “This life is not about the destination…it is about the journey.” I know this sounds cliché, but it is overwhelmingly true. I am convinced that the point of life is transformation. Only on a journey can one be transformed.
If my belief in eternal life (that begins in the present) with God is true…then this life I’m living now is a journey back home. It is my belief that God’s holiness is so pure, and His love is so other-centered, that if I were to face Him in my current egocentricity it would be unbearable, and I would cease to exist. The fire of His holiness would consume me, and when my sin perished before Him, there would be little or nothing left of me.
This is why the journey of transformation is so essential. If I follow Christ, I believe His Spirit will transform me during this life, helping me to find my true face, so that I can handle the beauty, glory, and presence of uninhibited life with God in His kingdom.
We all are on a journey. One from death to death, or one from death to life.
This blog is simply a chronicle of my journey through experiences, thoughts, and prayers, with an emphasis on photography. Join me as I record life and transformation through the lens.
