Hold Me Fast

STORY BEHIND THE PHOTO: Picture Praise, 11/19/12

This picture was taken during a very special sunrise worship time on Easter morning. I was on a trip with 60+ students from a school in Southeast Asia. This was their senior trip; one last time for them to make memories with each other before scattering across the globe for the next step in their faith journey. Even though they are from many different cultural backgrounds, they have one thing in common: their parents serve overseas. There are many advantages and disadvantages to growing up as a TCK (Third Culture Kid) and they are often the "forgotten people group" that need spiritual guidance and investment just as much as the people their parents serve. Armed with a broad worldview, a Biblical perspective, a desire to serve, and a faith they've made their own, these students look to their Maker and Savior for guidance and strength. As the sun illuminates the beautiful creation in this photo, for me, it also symbolizes the Son, whose light illuminates this world and if allowed, will shine through a surrendered heart.

Picture Praise goes out to over 2,000 subscribers weekly and has become one of our most inspirational and easily sharable publications. This is an opportunity to put your life on the field and the people you serve in front of many believers. Often times, it has become an initiator of prayer to those who receive it.

We'd love to see your corner of the world and the people who live please consider submitting your photo (jpeg, at least 600px x 400px) and verse (not on the photo) to:
