A FIRE WITHIN

by OSM STUDIO

 

The Holy Spirit, the 3rd person of the Trinity.

The force that inspired a movement that changed the world one language at a time.

During Pentecost weekend OSM launched an exclusive hoodie that truly meant something more. This Hoodie was inspired by events years ago and sparked a motion that impacted each and everyone of us today.


God created that natural calling in all of us to capture the moments of inspiration

 

In Spiritus is the Latin root of Inspiration.

 

Experiencing being inspired is to literally be infused or animated with the Spirit, itself. This Spirit has the ability to affect everything from our mind, eyes, and actions.

It empowers us to be driven and fulfilled with a purpose

 

During Pentecost, the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles infusing Itself within their being. The Holy Spirit changed their fear into flaming boldness to the live the Truth.

This fire, this Spirit was moving. These Apostles, moved by the Spirit, then began to speak so that everyone in their own language could understand. 


A miracle worth more than a thousands words.

Imagine that this same Spirit that enabled the Apostles to speak truth, despite language barriers, exists within us today. The world has over 7,000 languages, and it would be impossible for any of us to learn 100 of those languages in order to be proficient to say, “ I love you”, “I miss you”.

 
 

Can this same Spirit be found in the craft of photography?

 

A single photograph can translate any profound expression instantly. It is ingrained in our human nature to take a photo of a sunset or sunrise because it translates “beautiful” to the minds of so many others.

We participate in this craft to experience the Spirit as well as communicate it. Could photography be today’s tool to inspire ourselves with the Spirit?

 


 

Reflection

 


And they were all filled with the holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues, as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.
— Acts 2:4

 

Can you imagine what it must have been like to witness the upper room when the Apostles were first introduced to the Holy Spirit? A moment so sensational, illuminating, and intimate all at once. Are we capable of participating in that moment thousands of years ago, today?

We are able to ignite the fire within ourselves at the click of a shutter

 
 

We are able to ignite the fire within ourselves at the click of a shutter encountering Beauty itself that meets us on the other side of the lens.

Can a single photograph be worth a thousand words, envelop the hundreds of different languages the Apostles were able to speak in the time of their generation? What is the one language designed for every human heart to understand?

 

How will you let the Holy Spirit set a fire within you?
