In my house

Psalm 4:8. “In peace I will both lie down and sleep: for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety. 

I am afraid, I have nowhere to sleep tonight.  I am worried about how to stay warm, where to get food and how to be safe from the dark terrifying streets. I am alone in my thoughts that are complicated by my feelings and perceptions. The voices in my head tell me to die. I feel alone. I am alone in the world, no family, no friends or anyone that loves me.

I pray as I kneel before the world that someone will care about me. I would be grateful for any opportunity. But in the event there is no one on earth that has an open heart, I know my God will protect me and welcomes me into his house.

I hope that one day I wake up not hungry, afraid or worried how to be safe.

Amen

Me, my camera and how I see the world.

I am second. I will share my experiences, as a child of God, husband to Daniel, father, best friend, brother, son, leader, professor, writer and photographer. My intention for this blog is to be random, with no plan, no list, no direction and no expectations. Very different from how I lived my past life. My journey has been blessed by the mercy and grace of God and unwavering love. I hope you enjoy reading and sharing my experiences of hurts, laughter, discovery, friendships, Christ, and my family. Temenos is a safe circle where you can be yourself with peace of mind. Temenos originates from a Greek word which refers to a universal instinct to create a protected, safe space in which to heal, restore and regenerate yourself. My temenos circle is a place to be still and seek Jesus. It becomes my place to pray, reflect in the word of our Lord to shrink, grow in him, and heal my soul. What is your temenos circle?
