What Is Wisdom?

God knows everything and is the source of all knowledge worth having. One very important avenue to God’s wisdom is the process of discovery and exploration. Unfortunately, we have outsourced and streamlined our search for knowledge. Our schools teach us to memorize facts and not to seek them. Recorded history is fraught with biases and twisted perspectives. Our professions have little tolerance for inexperience and “on-the-job-learning” And now “the age of information” has given us a false sense of knowledge […]

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.  

Flip Flop

Flip Flop by Greg Pai Photo Credit: Erik Hersman (Nairobi, Kenya) I flip! I flop! I wander without aim. Life is such a game. Chasing fortune. Chasing fame. I flop and I flip. I ride high and then I dip Kick off my sandals and wade. What am I waiting for? My time on earth to fade? The Sun to Turn To Shade? The water to recede? Leave behind what I need? It doesn’t work that way. It doesn’t matter […]

Are You A Picture Taker Or A Photographer?

A Picture-Taker becomes a Photographer when he or she has connected with the phenomenon that they capture.

Always Thank God…

Using a camera is a great way to capture the awesomeness of God’s creation. But let us never forget that God’s creation extends infinitely beyond the frame of an image.

Where Can We Find Some Of God’s Best Work?

What a face. What a grimace. God’s creation. No detail missed. Inside a heart. Virtually pure. He’s going to win this race; I’m sure.

What Happens When You Love People So Much…

CNN: This little black box could change the internet in Africa– here’s why you should care You have to want to do GOOD and hope to do WELL. BRCK’s founders and investors had to believe that they were […]

Capturing A Miracle

Sometimes being in the wrong place at the wrong time can be the exact place at the perfect time to photograph a miracle. Many remember this amazing story of heroism on the part of the pilot and the orderly passengers who didn’t let their panic overtake their desire to assist one another. The individual who captured this moment just happened to be on a ferry not too far from where the plane landed. What could have easily resulted in a bad outcome […]

Do You Have A Train To Catch?

I know. Easier said than done. But how true and profound. Why are we so preoccupied with getting to the destination and so little attention is given to the journey. From when we are young, we are hammered to get good grades so we can go to a good college. We are convinced we need to do well in college so we can get a good job. We strive to do well at our job so we can climb the ladder. We […]

Why Does Time Fly When We Are Having Fun?

Time itself is not nearly as important as how each moment is spent. We spend time like it is infinite. Ironically, we have a greater concern for our financial wealth which is fleeting and ultimately useless without the ingredient of time. One example of such abuse is our commute to work. The average American spends one hour a day commuting roundtrip which has steadily increased since 1980. That works out to be equivalent to 1.8 trillion minutes in one year […]

Red Boots! Red Boots!

Red Boots! Red Boots! by Greg Pai Photo Credit: Greg Pai Red Boots! Red Boots! Just in case Life rains on me through thickening fog my boots you’ll see. Red Boots! Red Boots! Protect my feet from puddled pools, torrential showers, and morning dew Red Boots! Red Boots! I thought they’d protect. Keep dry in the wet. Oh, the comfort I get. But now I regret the trust that I had in boots so red. That kept dry my feet […]

Is Life Really Better Under The Sea?

Not likely unless you are a fish. However, this recent photo contest makes a compelling case for the world down under. Most of us will never come face to face with these forms of life except through the lens of these brave photographers (who also happen to be divers). An example of where two talents are necessary to bring about a single result. The Ocean’s Chaotic Beauty Captured In 15 Award-Winning Photos “In case you needed further proof that the ocean […]

Is It Possible To Explain The Wonders Of The World?

When it comes to wonders and miracles, our time is best spent not asking how, but thanking Who.  

What Does The Desert Mean To You?

What a great perspective from Joy Harjo. Feels like God’s perspective too. Our perspective does not hold weight against God’s perspective. So, while having a perspective is in our nature and part of our creative and strategic thinking gifts, we should always seek God’s perspective for reconciliation to our own. God’s perspective is what we should strive to unearth and embrace because it is rooted in truth and comes directly from the source of creation.  

Want A Laugh Over Spilled Milk?

Moooooove Over Scientists! Scientists deserve a great respect for their pursuit of exploring and understanding God’s miracles. But don’t be fooled for a second, God is the only creator of miracles. And everything is a miracle!

Do You Want To Be Famous?

The only fame worth pursuing is that which you gain for sharing God. It is a fame that makes you effective and gain the attention of others, but leaves you in God’s shadow so that He gets all the glory.

Only God!

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

Through My Lens

Through my lens; I see millions of friends; Who may find our Blog; And grow closer to God.

Are You Ready To Carry The Burden Of Another?

God is the creator and giver of all strength. When we share this strength to lift our brothers and sisters in need, we find that God always provides a supply that exceeds the demand.  

Are You Going To Get In The Way Of Yourself This Year?

I went to bed last night and set my alarm for 5:00 am.  What was I thinking? I was thinking I was going to get up and photograph the perfect circumstances God had planned and were forecasted for the morning sunrise over New York. Such anticipation for a great moment. Instead, I woke up closer to the sun’s transit overhead and overwhelmed by a sense of failure. Not because I missed the photo op; but because I questioned my own sense of appreciation particularly […]

Who Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?

God made each and every one of us unique for a reason. Preprogrammed into your soul is your specific purpose. And that purpose will use ALL the physical, emotional, and spiritual gifts you were created with. God wastes nothing. Just look at the inter-relationship and inter-dependence of everything in the universe. I remember as a youngster when I would hear of friends having their appendix removed. I would always wonder, “Don’t we need that thing? Why would we have it in […]

Guess What?

God is the giver of life. Maybe you are reading this and it is the absolute worst day or time in your life. Maybe you have lost hope and can’t even find the strength to lift your body. Well I have good news for you… You are Alive! And as long as you are alive there is hope. A miracle certainly awaits you. It may simply be the miracle of another breath of life. Even so, as long as there […]

May New Acquaintances Be Always Remembered! (Ode to Auld Lang Syne)

So here we are at the end of the year. Not just any year. The first New Year for photographingGOD. Though hardly a full new year. We launched on Saturday morning, September 5 at around 8am Eastern Standard Time. We had no agenda. No plan. Not even a vision.

Can A Photograph Heal?

Photography as a Healing Art Photographs have power. Creative photography allows us to see the world in new ways, to drop preconceptions, and to find focus in a busy, chaotic world. For some, photography is an art; for others, a job or a hobby. But there’s another, rapidly expanding avenue for camera work – photography as therapy. “Photography is a tool for meditation, mindfulness and creative living. Now the emerging field of phototherapy embraces the power of making and viewing […]

Children Are The Hands…

Children are one of the many connections that give us a view to the glory of heaven. The beauty and purity of their nature before the world takes hold of them is a near perfect reflection of heaven’s soil.

Put Your Shovels Away and Let It Snow!

I remember as a child cutting snowflakes out of folded paper and always entertained by the result. An acceptable rendition of what only God can produce perfectly. However, only when I stumbled on the work of a certain amateur photographer did I truly realize how magnificent a creation a simple snowflake is. Maybe not so simple after all. We can get up close and personal with the snowflake through the work of Alexey Kljatov. Get ready to be amazed! Photographer Alexey Kljatov uses quick bursts of […]

A Bone To The Dog Is Not Charity

Deep in our hearts is the natural desire to give, and give unconditionally. Besides the fact that so many of us in the developed world have so much to give, we still battle a voice that tells us not to give what we need or more than we have to. In other words, I will give so long as I do not give what I need now or might need in the future.” But what fun is that? Don’t you […]

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 […]

All Are Welcome Here

While so many in the world seek out reasons to divide, hate and war against one another, a group of brave people, from different faiths, yet with similar hearts, are seeking to coexist. Not only peacefully, but cooperatively. “A mosque, a church and a synagogue go up on the site of an old Jewish country club. It sounds like the setup to a joke — but it’s not. It’s actually happening in Omaha, Neb. The Tri-Faith Initiative may be the first place […]
