Psalm 130

Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD;

O Lord, hear my voice.
Let your ears be attentive
to my cry for mercy.

If you, O LORD, kept a record of sins,
O Lord, who could stand?

But with you there is forgiveness;
therefore you are feared.

I wait for the LORD, my soul waits,
and in his word I put my hope.

My soul waits for the Lord
more than watchmen wait for the morning,
more than watchmen wait for the morning.

O Israel, put your hope in the LORD,
for with the LORD is unfailing love
and with him is full redemption.

He himself will redeem Israel
from all their sins.


I have blogged in the past, but haven’t in quite some time so I decided to start a new blog for this stage of my life. I don’t plan to hold anything back on how I am struggling. Life has been quite a struggle for a while now and I know that others can benefit from hearing how others are coping with everyday situations. I, like everyone, has a fair share of struggles.

My current struggle is not knowing where my life is headed. I feel so stuck all the time. Most of it is my fault, and I realize that. When I graduated from high school I was so excited to go away to college and become an elementary teacher. I focused on that for a couple years and then was faced with new challenges and have now come to realize that I am not meant to be a teacher. The only problem is that I have no idea what I am meant to be. I pray every day that I will be able to figure out which direction I need to go.

The only thing that I really have a passion for is photography. Ever since exploring this new world, I have looked at everything with a new perspective. I see everything through a lens. “To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place...I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” Elliot Erwitt
