      Just because a photo is in google does not mean it is free to use!

        Hello, galleryofgrace. Firstly thank you for dropping by, I was expecting feedback to improve the quality of my article, not a baseless comment.

        I have been here for about two months now, in that time I have read about HP best practices for writers.

        In cases you have forgotten, let me kindly reiterate that COPYRIGHT images are illegal to use, but according to HP, Creative Commons Images are legal to use once cited properly. All my images are from Pixabay, there are FREE to use, and they don't require me to attribute them, as stated by the owners.

        Thanks to you, I have endured the agony of having to go back to Pixabay and link all my images. I can't remember the search phrase I used to find one of my images, so I changed it all together just to please you.

        Let me conclude by saying this, you can't go around aimlessly accusing people of stealing photos from google.

        Your practice isn't good, it is unprofessional and downright unethical. My advice to you is to stop it, people's character is brought into disrepute here.

        I hope moving forward you will learn from his experience and find out your facts before you start going about accusing other writers of stealing images from google.

        Please don't take this personal, I just needed to address your error and your unethical practice.

        Blessings.

      You need to carefully proof read and edit as there are numerous grammatical errors, tense inconsistencies and left out words.  The first paragraph alone has several which will make readers unlikely to stick around and discover what you have to say.

      "Elijah, an Old Testament prophet of God, considered as one of the most dynamic, fearless, and courageous prophets that lived in his time. Yet when he received news that Jezebel is out to destroy him, instead of standing his ground and believe God - he became fearful and run away to hide in the wilderness. No wonder the Bible said that fear is inevitability (Proverbs 1:26-27) - it will confront you."

      First sentence - incomplete. Second sentence - inconsistent tenses - received, is, became, run.  Should be "believing in God"

      I'm not exactly sure what the point of the paragraph is - That no matter how fearless and courageous you are you will still experience fear?  That even the greatest prophet in his time could become fearful?  That fear confronts you not matter what? That if you believe in God you won't be fearful? 

      Hopefully, this helps give you some direction for improving the article.  Most importantly, proofread and edit and consider having someone else proof read it as well if you aren't picking up the problems.  Good luck.

        Thanks a lot, Natalie, I made the mistake of not unpublishing the article before working on it. I am currently adding more content to the article and haven't proofread it as yet. But thanks to you my proofreading is going to be easier.

        Thank you.

          Don't unpublish before editing. Leave it as it is. The new version will replace the old as soon as you press Done Editing. If you unpublish, you lose the original date of publication, which if any of your work has been copied, is a great disadvantage.

            theraggededge, this is news for me. Moving forward I will follow your advice.

        I'm now finished with adding the extra content and proofreading. If you have the time, please leave me your feedback.

    You don't need to add links to all your images. Just state they are from Pixabay. Remember that HP doesn't like more than two outbound links to the same domain.

    I agree with Natalie. You have a rough draft and need to edit it with the reader in mind. Right now, it is too choppy and doesn't flow.

    For example:

    But when he received news that Jezebel was out to destroy him.

    Instead of him standing form - he ran away into the wilderness to hide because of fear. Fear will confront you no matter what, that's the lesson here.

    And (Proverbs 1:26-27) reinforces this lesson, it says that fear is inevitable - it will confront you.

    So, whether you consider yourself fearless, these Bible verses will still be of great benefit to you.

          Ok, even though I don't like the idea of others viewing my unpolished work, I will go ahead and republish.

            Always best to polish before pressing Publish. Then never unpublish unless you are removing it from HubPages.
