Being able to go out and spend day with my oldest son, gave me hope that there is always a chance for a new beginning. While I didn’t know this was possible, it feels so good to have a fresh start and have this new journey with him. I’m grateful that God gave me the strength to keep going and believing that in time, things will work out. I have learned to be patient and in the right time, not my time, but on God’s time.. it came together. My son and I are now embarking on the future and letting go of what was.
So hope to me is seen with a fresh start for us!!
Children working together through Art no matter their ethnicity or background. There is hope in our future through our children.
I saw the divine light at the end of the tunnel when I took this photo and felt God’s love, hope and light that shines so bright!
One of God’s Beauty’s
Seeing the calm waters after a day of Waves .. God is letting Us Know the Sun will set and Shine again
Hold on just a little longer…
Drops over Dry Land
Ranjith Easter Raj Neelavan
The temperature dropped from 106 to 84 within minutes. Clouds, lightning, thunder, wind and there was this downpour.
That’s HOPE to me. It’s like God’s goodness being unfolded even in the midst of the driest season of our lives!
Hope in the Future
Leading our youth at camp has been one of the great joys of my life. It gives me so much hope to see the next generation of believers cementing their faith!
“Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him.” -Psalm 34:8
This photo represents hope through the awe-inspiring wonder of God’s creation. Every moment, every breath of life reveals His unfailing love and goodness that’s beyond all human understanding. <3
Sunrise and Coffee
Sunrise + Coffee is a “thin space” for me. It takes effort (for me) to be present for the sunrise, (hence the coffee), but to see the actual moment of the new day unfolding in GOD’s time instead of mine is a great reminder that He is in control. I have seen God perform amazing miracles in HIS time, and just like the sun will rise every day, God is working in all things to make everything beautiful/appropriate in His time. (Ecclesiastes 3:11)
The Beauty of Film
Film photography; a lost art.
This picture was shot on a canon ae-1. It’s not edited, touched up, or manipulated in any way. The beauty of Film is the unknown. the wondering what the pictures will end up like if I got the right exposure, etc. but there’s nothing compared to when anxious anticipation is met with exceeded expectations. This is the beauty of film. This is the hope of life. The things unseen that will be far more glorious than the things seen
When you hear the word HOPE, what comes to mind? Is it a scene from nature? Is it individuals or organizations doing amazing work? Maybe it’s a glimpse of a dreamer or a newborn? Or what about the people around you who need hope? When you see them, do you think of a way they could find HOPE?
How would you capture a story of HOPE through a photo?
We are inviting YOU to show us what HOPE looks like through your lens. And specifically focusing on the state of California. Whether you’re a professional photographer or a camera phone shooter, we know you have a unique perspective that would be helpful for others to see and understand.
