brandoneckroth Let's become more aware of His presence.

When waves of trial and destruction come crashing down on our lives, rather than running in fear, let's stand strong and trust that He will calm even the roughest of storms in our lives.

brandoneckroth Wow. Fifty thousand.

One year ago, I didn't even own my own camera, and today over fifty thousand of you are following along on this incredible journey with me.

It is because of you, because of your love and support, that I am where I am today.

So thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for allowing me to capture God's beautiful creation and share it with the world.

brandoneckroth Why.

To make people feel.
To tug at the very strings of their beating hearts.
To open their eyes to a world unseen.
To open their ears to words unheard.
To take their minds to a place never before been.
To give them an experience unforgettable.
With every photograph taken and every word written, to make their imagination run wild and allow their hearts to witness His beauty and grace.

That is why I do what I do.

brandoneckroth By our love.

There's this old song we used to sing in church when I was younger that went "they will know we are Christians by our love". Too many people, including myself at times, have lost that realization.

We go about pushing the Bible onto people, expecting them to change their lives immediately. All too often we think that the more we know, the better we are. Sure, sharing God's Word is great, but even Jesus says, "By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." in John 13:35.

So rather than going around showing how much we know, let's go around and show how much we love.

brandoneckroth Today I had to say goodbye.

Goodbye to the one who is responsible for the smile on my face and the far-too-fast heartbeat in my chest. Her love pours out like a never-ending river to everyone around her and I couldn't be more blessed to have such a grace-filled woman in my life. These goodbyes will never get easier, but I'll see you soon.

You're all things wonderful, @__victoriaprice.

  •   lunenator Its always good to take a moment and meditate on the beautiful creations that God created for us! And while doing so notice no one can create all this out of nothingness like God did! And notice how small we are! And just how powerful and great our God is! He should always be Glorified! @brandoneckroth 2w

brandoneckroth Let's let God be God.

Let's find joy in the freedom of letting God be God. Let's live in the goodness that His grace offers us. Let's not try to control our own destinies only to be controlled by them. Let's live a life free from expectations and a life consumed by love.

On a side note, I am finally finished going through all of the photos from my journey west and I will be selling a series of limited edition prints. Each photo will be made into fifteen prints and once those fifteen prints are sold, the photo will be retired and never printed again! So go check out the "Prints" section on my website (link in bio) and grab one of only fifteen copies of this photo "Sunrise at Jenny Lake".

brandoneckroth I stand here in this moment, wave after wave crashing upon the shore, worrying about nothing but the magnificence of God. There's something about an ocean, the power and the mystery in which it possesses, that sets my soul free. It allows me to be still. 3w

brandoneckroth Do what you love and own it.

Whether it's painting, music, sports, photography, or whatever it may be, never talk down about your passion because you fear it's not good enough. Love what you love and don't worry about what anyone else thinks.
