My life was so different 4 years ago. I didn’t go anywhere without my camera, and the beauty I found in the world would become the beginning of the thought, “maybe there is a God after all.” Someone talked about seeds planted the other day, and I couldn’t point to a single person I had allowed in my life that could have planted seeds for me to find Jesus. I didn’t associate with Christians. Honestly, could not stand them. But as I look back and see the beauty I tried to capture every day doing wildlife and landscape photography, I had unknowingly been witnessing firsthand the fruit of God’s seed planted directly in front of my eyes. He revealed Himself to me slowly, through the things I loved in this world because He knew that I had barricaded myself away from any other opportunity of knowing Him. I am blessed to know Him, oh how I am blessed. I can’t say that I look at nature the same as I did before. I can’t say that watching birds makes my heart soar or that I catch every little detail of a flower anymore but that’s because my focus is on Him now instead of His creation.
