Awesome picture
 
Best viewed on black background by clicking on image. I took this shot a few nights ago of the Big Dipper over Fisher Towers in Utah. The towers are impressive when seen from the road, but to really get a feel for how massive they are, you need to spend time hiking around them.

This was a fairly difficult image to capture. I explain how I do it in my book "Collier's Guide to Night Photography" at: http://www.collierpublishing.com/Night-Photography-Guide.htm

Oh Taste and See

Psalms 34:8 Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him! ESV #Bible

Take the time so far in perceiving God, as to consider even the taste in your mouth. Experience Jehovah our self existent God, in gazing joyfully into who He is.
Our Lord is good, He is perfect in all His ways, everything He does is motivated by His love. Take heed to His presence in every part, every place of your life.
Be happy as you look to Jesus, the expression of God the Father's perfect Love, realizing Jesus is the only shelter, the perfect refuge for our safety, that will carry us to eternal life with our LORD. God is Good all the time

God Knows
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. ESV #Bible

God knows. Jesus our Lord is the Great Sheppard, Jesus purveys the paths of life and directs His bride in the way we need to go.
Jesus doesn't leave it up to us to decide which path we should choose, He directs us.
What is required of us is to go in submission and prayer asking our Lord Jesus to direct our steps in the direction He wants us to go.
It is amazing and supernatural when we step out in faith and do what God desires of us. Whether we travel a new path, or simply do what He wants us to do.
God has a future all planned out for us. It is a future of His blessings and companionship with us. There is no evil that we should fear, but a future of hope.
Do we hope for evil things? Of course not, our hope is also in the Love of God displayed through His Son Jesus the Christ, who has paid in full the price of our sins, and delivered us into the very family of God Himself, whom we now call Abba Father.

The Rock
Matthew 7:24-27 () "Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it." ESV #Bible

What an awesome description of our lives. We can build our house literally on rock, and it will stand through whatever nature throws at it.
The same is true when we hear the counsel of Jesus the Christ and belive and do what He says.
Jesus being our Rock or the Foundation of our lives proves to be strong, withstanding the storms of this life.
No matter what the world might throw at us, our foundation - Jesus is stronger, and we survive. It doesn't mean in this life only, but even to eternity with Jesus.
For those who reject the good news of the counsel of Jesus the Christ. Who build their lives on what they desire, and even lust after. Believing it will bring satisfaction and safety, without considering their need for a solid foundation. Will in time be found toppled by the destructiveness of this life and it's temptations.
As always Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Jesus holds the keys to life, and true life is found no where else but in Jesus the Christ. That's why Jesus is called our Saviour.

The Elder
1 John 5:21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. ESV #Bible

To an elder, or an elderly man, all those younger are children to him, whether in the church or the family.
For an elder in the church his love for the congregation are his children in the Lord, he watches over them as his own.
The elder naturally loves his flock or congregation. It comes easily to him because he is residing in Christ's Love with the desire to serve the body of believers.
The elder naturally wants to protect his children from evil, or any sort of harm. Helping to raise them up in the fullness of the Gospel and the Love of Jesus the Christ.
Idols are anyone or thing that would distract or block you from direct axcess to God.
It's like the sun, when something comes between you and the sun, you find yourself in the shade or darkness.
Keeping yourselves in the light of God's Love is to stay away from anything that would draw you into a place of darkness, or what would come between you and God.  Causing ignorance of God and the longer you stay the more ignorant you become about God and his Love. Then your hunger for God is replaced with what your human nature desires. Then sin reigns as God over your life. So keep yourselves from idols.

Cool picture
 
Here's a shot of Double Arch in Arches National Park. I stitched together multiple shots with a 14mm lens to capture an ultra-wide view of the arches. The field of view diagonally is nearly 300 degrees.

The Christ
Matthew 16:13-16  Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?" And they said, "Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets." He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Simon Peter replied, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." ESV #Bible

It is a privilege to know that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God.
When you consider how close all of us came to turning our backs on Jesus, or even in those times of temptation slipped away in sin.
We could have missed our salvation because of the lusts of our desire.
Thank God that He didn't give up on us so quickly.
Again we are thankful that we didn't have some worldly idea, or opinion that Jesus was a myth, or just some great man, or even just a prophet of old who isn't realitive today.
Thank God we have met the Son of God, Jesus the one and only unique Son, who is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.
The Great Sheppard  who leads us through this life on our way to be with God our Father for eternity.
Jesus who laid down His earthly life for the punishment of our sin, and after three days rose from the dead leading us to the new life in Grace, onward home to our Father God into eternity.
Who do I say that Jesus is? He is my Saviour, my God, my Brother, He is my Lord, He is the Way, the Truth and the only Life worth living.

To capture this image, I stitched together 6 vertical images taken with a 14mm lens to capture a very wide field of view in Arches National Park.

Eternal Fruit
Luke 6:43-45 "For no good tree bears bad fruit, nor again does a bad tree bear good fruit, for each tree is known by its own fruit. For figs are not gathered from thornbushes, nor are grapes picked from a bramble bush. The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks. ESV #Bible

You've heard the expression "you are what you eat", the same is true with what you think, or purpose in your heart.
We human beings are very selfish by nature and we need to be aware of that fact. We can't expect to go through this life ignoring or justifying our selfishness.
As Christians we must travel the higher path of considering others more important than ourselves.
Humility is an admirable trait, but difficult to master in sincerity. If we want to please God than this is the best path traveled.
Our Saviour Jesus the Christ  lived his life in Humility, and even at His death asking the Father God to "forgive them for they don't know what they are doing". Which is the best fruit we can produce from Humility, to be caring about others.
