Not all people who have met the misfortune of homelessness are homogeneous and can be lumped into one group. Homelessness does not define a person. Rather, it is a description of one’s circumstances and not who they are. Let us never forget that these are individuals with their own special stories and the blessing of life from God. Furthermore, the label alone will never define the potential of a single person. Just ask world-renowned author and humanitarian, J.K. Rowling. However, […]
If you are feeling a little let down today, how do you think this fox feels! Dealing with our fellow man can take its toll these days. So, here is a welcomed distraction. The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards should lift your spirits with photos of animals doing the darndest things. God has filled the animal kingdom with a kaleidoscope of personalities, beauty, and innocence. A perfectly timed breath of fresh air.
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 […]
It is fascinating to see how people from developed societies transform physically during the course of a 24 hour day. I promise this is not the case in underdeveloped parts of the world. This a a great project and the photographer has done a great job capturing this phenomenon. Beyond the novel and creative however, maybe a deeper look should inspire us to look at the effort we budget for physical transformation and that which we set aside for spiritual. Just […]
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

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

We needed a quote. And the photographingGOD community responded. So many to choose from. More importantly, it was a blessing to enjoy the inspirations that were shared. Really, they are all winners, and so, WE are all winners. However, we choose one to feature and that honor went to Allen Jose Hinahon Tingzon of Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands. When asked what photographingGOD meant to him, Allen told us this… “photographingGOD is a very unique platform to express one’s faith in God and […]
Like a fine wine, age creates a bouquet of human flavor. A life lived gets richer in spirit as time rolls on. This photographer does a great job capturing the depth of beauty that lies on the inside and out of these older women. A true testament that God did not design us to wilt over time.
You can separate Church and State but you will always lose if you try to separate God from His creation. God created man and everything else and while the world tries so hard to separate from God, God is still the Creator and the Star of the show. Don’t take my word for it. See what the most famous scientists in history believe at 25 Famous Scientists On God. Ok – What do scientists know. So, consult the works of […]
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 […]
And this is the close to our every day! We really don’t spend enough time acknowledging our blessings or counting the countless miracles in our midst every single moment of every day. But they are abundant. How many miracles did you miss today? Only occasionally will we take notice to the more obvious of miracles including the sunset, a passing rainbow, or an exhibition of extraordinary talent. But every breath we take and beat of our heart is a miracle. Every […]
A smile is an expression of joy or delightful amusement. But it is also a way of giving that costs nothing. Smiling, like yawning, is contagious. This is actually a reflex God added to our design. We tend to respond to people with a like expression to theirs as part of our brain’s way of interpreting and understanding what they are feeling. So when you smile, you are gifting that smile and potentially lifting the spirits of another.
