This Is NOT a Photo

It’s hard to believe but the beautiful cat picture about is not a photo but a pencil drawing. The author of such unbelievable art is Paul Lung, a graphic artist from Hong Kong. He uses a 0.5 mm. mechanical pencil and paper to create astonishing masterpieces. He doesn’t use an eraser and spends up to 60 hours sketching out his pictures. Because people don’t believe he actually creates these remarkable pictures, on his website you can actually watch him creating them. What remarkable detail and precision to get them so realistic!

The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Psalm 37

God is detailed. He know exactly how many mountains there are on earth. He knows each individual feature of his creation. But, what’s really astounding is he knows those details about you and your life. Another one of the psalms says God knows everything about every person…you included! It says he knows your thoughts; he knows when you sit down or stand up; he knows what you’re going to say before you say it. Then, it says he blesses all of this.

God cares about every aspect of your life. He wants to be involved in your life. He’s already sent you an invitation. What do you say?

5 Guys and a Little Camera

I saw recent article about five guys who, on their vacation, posed for the same picture every 5 years for 30 years. So, you can see them aging from 1982 to 2012. When they were all 19 years old, one of them decided to set his 35-millimeter camera on self-timer and take a group shot. Now, it was their intention at that moment to take a picture of the same pose every 5 years for the next 30 years…but that’s exactly what they ended up doing. It’s really interesting to watch as they change. For instance, notice at first some have their shirts off, but later…well, they all have shirts on. Yes, as the years go by we do show wear and tear! Did you know if you took a spiritual picture of Jesus over a 30 year period he would look exactly the same? True. In fact if you took spiritual pictures of Jesus over 2,000 years. Over eternity! He would never, ever change. The Bible simple say:

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Hebrews 13

Don’t you find that reassuring? So many things in this world change so quickly. A computer is starts being outdated in 4-6 years. Have you seen the commercial where the guy buys a cell phone and as he’s leaving the store with what he thinks is the latest model, a billboard is going up advertising the next model!

Today, think about what it could be like to connect with Jesus. In the midst of all the chaos, you would have one constant in your life.

***I don’t even want to imagine what I would look like being in a picture every 5 years for 30 years! Yikes! How about you?
