An email to God.



Jesus answered him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born anew, he cannot see the kingdom of God." ~ John 3:3


Dear Lord,

Thirteen years ago, you gave me the greatest gift of all. You baptized me in Your holy water, washing me clean and giving birth to a new life ahead. Though at the time I didn't exactly understand the point of it all as a young 14-year-old, I thank you for opening my eyes later in college to understand the depths of Your love as personal, relevant and intimate. We have been on quite the exciting journey together as I've struggled to do things my own way, find joys in other idols of this world, and ultimately come back to You time and time again asking for forgiveness in the times I've gone astray. Thank You for the grace to always take me back as I also learn about the grace to forgive others as well. I continue to grow in Your peace and learn the beauty of serving others, but in all the ways I'm not perfect, You are. In all the ways I am weak, You are strong.

As we celebrate my baptism birthday today, I pray that You will continue to use my gifts You have given me to make a difference in the lives I come across daily as we continue to walk hand in hand down this beautiful path You are leading me down. May I always trust that You provide just enough light for each step I'm on. Thank you for being my Father of protection and guidance, my Lover of romancing my heart, my King Who rules over all the heavens and earth, and my Best Friend in Who all I confide and share joy with. Here's to many more fabulous years ahead with You!

With all my heart,
Scarlett

That picture is gorgeous. Wow! A baptism birthday? how NEAT! I gotta go back and look at the date of my Baptism now. I was just baptized about 6 months ago in my church. :)

you really amaze me. I don't know you, but I admire your zeal to be passionate about your life - it shows in your work, and the fact that you would just lay out your love for Jesus Christ in front of the world -clients, other photographers, or random passer by's is truly inspiring. It makes me wish I knew you, and glad I'll at least bump in to you in eternity.

I have come across your blog just recently and I am so blessed by your surrendered heart. I pray that God will open heaven and pour out so much blessing that you are unable to contain it all.

You ARE a "rock", Scarlett!! You go girl!

Wow! I just came across this "older post" when looking for inspiration in my new found love for photography.

I love how you glorified the Lord in truth and deed! It made me smile...

Agape sister.
