Unbelief

"We probably don't need more faith,
we need less unbelief"


Our gentle pastor shared today, based on Hebrews chapter three.




He loves me.... he loves me not.... he loves me.... he loves me not....




Sometimes we need to stop sitting on the fence, wavering in our belief. Not believing keeps us apart from God.
We need to unbind our faith.

Each one of us is precious and unique, made by God for good things. The people of Israel in the desert could not believe God was committed to do them good. Don't be like that, have a believing heart.....

Thoughts for me to ponder this week and beyond.

These photos are perfection, Karen, and you know I don't say those words lightly. So pleased you and the kids had fun the other day on the steam train - I didn't dare show the photos to Thomas as it would have evoked way too much envy. Hope you're going ok.

Stunning photos and wise words... yes we are made for good things and having a believing heart makes a difference. Thanks for this beautiful post

Leah said...

What a lovely, striking post.
In sight and in text.
Its the kind of post that I slowly read over a couple times.
I liked the contrast you created with the heavy red petals of unbelief and the light white seedlings of belief.
Beautiful.
Cheers,
Leah

All of your photos are simply gorgeous but that last one is stunning!

Liz said...

Beautiful images and such a wonderful post. Definitely thoughts to ponder on. Unbelief blocks so much in our lives.

MaryL said...

It is impossible for God to do wrong...He does not make mistakes, neither does He judge and rule unjustly. If there be misjudgement of God and His actions,words or deeds...the error is in our not knowing and understanding who He truly is because we do not have an intimate relationship with Him... but we can have through Jesus! His name is 'Wonderful'!!

Cherie said...

I'm reading through the bible this summer, and have just been passing through the desert with the Israelites. Unbelief is a good description! and lots of it. These photo captures are gorgeous and you get my vote this week!

Niewiara potrafi niszczyć człowieka i to smutne. Zdjęcia są oczywiście wspaniałe . Pozdrawiam.
Unbelief can destroy a man, and it's sad. The pictures are of course wonderful. Yours.

Rosie@leavesnbloomw said...

Beautiful macro's but even more beautiful are those words of truth that you shared with the readers.

Rod said...

I once had complete unbelief. Now when I see the world and learn about God I scratch my head wondering why I was like that. So wonderful words preached and wonderful pictures too.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

How did you know I've been struggling with this issue? I kid. Seriously though, I find it hard to believe sometimes that God wants good things for me and truly loves me; I'm always worried that he's only seeing my faults, ready to punish me as soon as I stumble. Which is a lot. Anyway, beautiful lesson and gorgeous photos.

ladyfi said...

Oh wow! As always, your photos are breath-taking!

Jennifer said...

Beautiful images! If you are looking for God, nature is a perfect point of departure.

These are amazing shots. I love the focus, especially in the first photo of the red flower.

MarieHarmony said...

These photos are so beautiful I feel I am in front of each of these beauties and I can even stretch my arm and touch them.
And the words are great too!

Nics Cahill said...

I love the words of your pastor, and the dandelion pictures are stunning - as are all your pictures but these ones particulary stood out for me
