Peace Like A River


"This is what the Lord says--your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: "I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.  If only you had paid attention to My commands, your peace would have been like a river, your righteousness like the waves of the sea." Isaiah 48:17, 18

"You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in You." Isaiah 26:3

"I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world." John 16:33

"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John 14:27

"And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:7

A perfect photo. I love to see how the world we envision thru our cameras - connects so perfectly with His word. (it should - He created it!)

Since I began more serious photography - Every time I look at a photo up close - I see so many things that I might have missed had i just walked by and not truly looked.

Out of that came my Intelligent Expressions blog - a 365 day personal project for this year.

I love the Lord! and I Love Photography!
