God and Calling

“The reality is that the Lord never calls the qualified; He qualifies the called.”
― Henry T. Blackaby

PS: Posted for Julie’s Travel photo of the week. Saw this Buddha along with the phone at Sokkhak Boutique Resort, the hotel in Siem Reap where we stayed during our vacation. Couldn’t resist posting this with the quote 🙂

Have a great week ahead!

Belief

Cambodia

“This is my belief: that through difficulties and problems God gives us the opportunity to grow. So when your hopes and dreams and goals are dashed, search among the wreckage, you may find a golden opportunity hidden in the ruins”.”

― A.P.J. Abdul Kalam

One of my very favorite photographs from Siem Reap, Cambodia. Taken in Bayon Temple. I could have centered it by moving little bit to the right, if I had been planning on it. Saw this at the last moment when we were about to get away from the place and took this very quickly before I regret not doing it. Nevertheless I am very happy about this photograph. Something about the idol sitting all proud and majestic (can you see the smile?) amongst the ruins (or whatever is being restored of that) is very endearing to me.
