When The World Goes Low…

What Is True Joy? Doing well and doing good not only go together, but are among the secret ingredients of true joy. Not the joy that comes from graduating from college, landing your first job, getting married, having a child, buying your dream car or home, or retirement. Those things are joyful, but they are also fleeting. Their elation will last for a time and will undoubtedly be interrupted by life’s unfortunate circumstances. However, true joy gives us the strength to look […]

Congratulations! You Are Destined To Conquer The Impossible!

Congratulations! By clicking this article, you are on your way to conquering the impossible – Your special impossible. The term “impossible” places such a burden on our lives as we grow up being told that more things are impossible than possible and that those things that are possible by someone are simply not possible by us. The reality is the contrary. Each of us has our own possible impossible. However, it requires a self-confidence and more importantly, a strong faith in God […]

The Problem With Making Plans

When we become too committed to what we think is “right or best” for us, we do not open our hearts to what God may have in store for our lives. I call it the studio apartment syndrome. We do not leave any room for God to live and work in our lives. Letting go of our conviction, for at least a moment, may reveal a better plan to be convicted to. Often, such plans, would never have had an opportunity to enter our imagination or consideration.

If we want God to work in our lives, we have to mentally move into a “McMansion” because God takes up that much room and more! -Greg Pai

Ever Feel Like Your Life Is Going Nowhere?

Do you feel like your life is going nowhere? I have great news. Nowhere is always somewhere; It just may not feel like anywhere right at the moment. Yet, life is not just a moment, but a continuum of moments strung together to form a glorious story. Your story. How do I know this is true?

God create you for greatness. You are an amazing creation with amazing ability and potential. Be patient and savor the moments. Be intentional, yet regard your current circumstances as part of a bigger plan. There is a bigger plan. Think back to the many times in the past you felt this way and then suddenly your circumstances changed. You may feel like you are in the middle of nowhere right now but I assure you, you are very much in the middle of somewhere. Blessings… -gp

The Single Most Influential Landscape Photographer

“Sometimes I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter.” -Ansel Adams

You Have A “Whole” In Your Head

This photo is called “Gimme A Kiss” and it depicts man’s fascination with art. So – Not all of us are a natural-born Picasso. However, God did give all of us an amazing gift to create and be creative. Let your creative juices flow in all that you do. Don’t be satisfied leading just a “left brain” life. Even if that is your strength. God gave you a right side too. And for a reason. To support your creativity, imagination, intuition, artistic […]

Love Can Heal Any Wound…

Love can heal any wound; and God is love. The power of photography… The power of God!

Smile, and Put Your Best Foot Forward…

Did you know that a photo of your feet can capture you at your best?

Do You Know When To Stay Still?

I classify anxiety as an official weapon of mass destruction. It has overwhelmed modern society and very few if any can avoid its wrath. It interferes with our ability to function, relate, share, connect, serve, work, play, imagine, sleep, rest, enjoy, and pray. [Did I forget anything?] Pharmaceutical companies are printing money on our backs while only providing temporary transient relief and no cure. But what is the answer? The answer lies in finding peace and rest in God. A peace that surpasses […]

What Is The Most Magical Surprise?

God’s finger is always on our lives even when we are not conscience of it. But every now and then, we will experience an extraordinary sense of being loved. It might come from a friend, a spouse, a pet, an audience, a stranger, or maybe from within. This is God’s love.

One Of God’s Greatest Gifts

Human doll. Perfect smile. Porcelain cheeks. A Beautiful child. Eyes of glass. A halo above. Made by God. Made with love.  

Only God!

Passion God is the source of Passion which gives us the ability to pursue our ability.

I Thought About Quitting…

God, please give us daily strength for our children

We Don’t Want to Tell People…

God gave us a brilliant mind to think for ourselves and not simply follow a system by default. But that requires time, effort, and most of all, God’s wisdom. Thinking, discovering, and creating are the three worst things to outsource, and doing so is a fatal mistake.

Have You Seen Nature’s Waterfall Of Colors?

“The Aurora Borealis , or Northern Lights, is one of nature’s most spectacular light displays. Ever changing, they will intrigue anyone who is lucky to catch them night after night. At no other time of year can we drive through city and country alike and feel the warmth that lights add to our lives. No matter how awesome our light displays are though, nothing can compare with one of the most amazing shows nature has to offer; the Aurora Borealis, or […]

If Not For The Valleys

by Greg Pai Featured Photo Credit: highlights6 (Wood Lanes, UK) If not for the valleys I often descend I could not see the mountains o’er horizon’s bend The glory of God His Majestic style Awe filled landscape A miracle mile So far in the distance While feeling so close The landscape before me I anticipate most These dips are in God’s grips All these lands are in His hands Descents and ascents are the intent of His plans Shaping and […]

Only God!

Our God-given Talents… Our God-given talents allow us to build amazing structures that physically connect us. Imagine the potential for us to be spiritually connected.

…The Potential Of The Day…

Blinds or shutters can close what is inside off from what is outside and vice versa. The moment we awake in the morning we have a powerful decision to make. Will we “open the blinds” of our hearts and minds to see the potential of the day? Or will we keep them closed by avoiding the risks we may have to take, and effort we may have to invest in order to uncover the day’s treasures? God created each of […]

…Passion Resides In All Of Us.

As sure as our hearts beat, passion resides in all of us. Only when we find God’s purpose for our life, our passion is activated and then… Watch out world!
