Missing the Mark…

Anyone who knows me, will know I love photography. I take my camera with me to all kinds of places to make sure I’m always ready if I happen to spot something incredible.

This practice has created a few nice images like this one

Recently I had the above photo made into my first large scale print to fill a very empty wall in my lounge room (thanks to my parents who offered to pay for the mounting as a gift).

My mistake was Continue reading Missing the Mark…

Reactive or Proactive?

As you arch over a chess board in silence, and your opponent makes a crushing move, your gameplay changes dramatically. You must now react, and that gives your opponent the advantage. By putting you into a defensive mode he is safe from attack.

It is the same in life, church, occupation, family, friends when we become reactive rather than proactive, we settle for less than the best.

Some Examples

Jesus was proactive.

He took the lead, never deviating from His mission.

He preached, taught, healed, worked, loved, lived and died on His own terms, and He was (and is) Continue reading Reactive or Proactive?

Jesus Cleanses the Temple

During the time of Passover, the Israelites were supposed to rid themselves and their houses of anything containing leaven, this is because leaven was symbolic of sin and Passover was symbolic of their deliverance from sin.

This is what makes the story of Jesus driving the money changers out of the temple so interesting. He cleanses the temple of the sinful practices going on within it.

This story can be found in all four gospels, but the one I was reading this morning is John 2:13-22.

Here we see Jesus in an unusual state, Continue reading Jesus Cleanses the Temple

You will see greater things than these…

At the beginning of Jesus’ ministry you find him selecting his disciples, today I was reading about Nathanael specifically and I noticed some lessons that I think we would do well to consider.

The story is found in John 1:43-51, but if you don’t have time to look it up, don’t worry I’ll give you an overview. Continue reading You will see greater things than these…

Two to One

Have you ever felt like the odds are stacked against you?

I think we have all been there at some point.

Today I simply want to encourage you to never entertain the idea of being forsaken. Because, believe it or not, if you cast yourself upon the Saviour, no matter how dark the circumstances, for every agent of satan seeking your ruin there are two unfallen, Holy Angels who are on your side, Continue reading Two to One

I Got Married!

unnamedYeah. You read that right.

I got married. Hitched. Wedded. Joined in marriage. United in wedlock. Spliced.

Whatever you want to call it…

And it was fantastic! I am very blessed to have a wife like Sarah. It has been just over nine excellent months since our wedding, and I am only just now getting back to my blog to give you all the news.

We got married back on the 8th of December 2013 amongst a group of our dearest friends and family.

Here are a couple more photos for you to enjoy…

Firstly, the Bridal party


and secondly, the family shot…


And as if that wasn’t enough good news for one post, I have one more item (no, its not a baby announcement) It has been a long time since there were any kind of regular posts on this blog, I am hoping to change that by returning to a more regular blogging habit.

I look forward to seeing you all here for a mix of photography, life lessons, Bible discoveries and more!

Caleb our example


As I was reading the word today I came across this passage… It made me long to be of a different spirit; Just like Caleb was…

It is challenging when we think of what that really means. When we look at the life of Caleb, we see a man who lived by faith and not by sight, he saw the world around him as God saw it, then acted as God would act.

Let us all strive to be the Caleb’s of this generation. Who knows if we might see the real promised land without seeing death!
