I really do prefer photographing Wildlife more than Zoo Animals. Though beautiful, there still is a sadness that comes from them. The surroundings are beautiful, but they are held within certain limits.
Many of us are also held captive mainly by our negative thoughts. We may be brokenhearted and suffering, but it is not going unnoticed by Jesus. He is waiting for us to come to Him.
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives, and release from darkness for the prisoners. Isaiah 61:1
Our days of living in captivity will soon be over. Total freedom is just ahead.
According to Scripture, many of us are being deceived by the devil, and he has taken us captives through deceptive philosophy.
See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ. Colossians 2:8
But there is hope, God says we can escape.
and they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will. 2 Timothy 2:26
