I took this photo of the Stirling Ranges, Western Australia. I love the yellow fields of canola and the beautiful blue sky with interesting clouds and the silhouette of the Stirling Ranges in the background.
We are so blessed that we live relatively near this beautiful place.
The words were inspired by the verse Philippians 2:13.
Recently, I feel that God has called me to renew my mind with His truth.
What better way than to display this mount in a place where you are reminded of His life-giving words!
I plan on displaying it next to my bedside so that when I wake up, I can renew my mind 😉
God is working in us, He will give us the power and desire to fulfil His good purpose for our lives!
I use to say “Please Be Patient With Me, God Is Not Done With Me Yet”
I am a Christ follower first and foremost and a nature photographer with photographs from all over the world and Australia. I am also a graphic designer.
I am also someone who has had to deal with Fibromyalgia with a whole range of symptoms for the past 10 years. It was triggered by a traumatic event of a hit and run, I was out walking outside my home and I was hit on my right lower back by a wing mirror that was broken off on impact as the car was going too fast.
With the constant pain, came the depression and with the fibro fog came the anxiety. I am alive because of my faith in Jesus.
The best way I can describe some of the symptoms is to think about when you had a cold. Your body aches, you are tired, your brain is foggy, you lack the motivation to do anything and you just feel blah. The only difference is you never know when or if it’ll ever end.
So I am coming from a place where I know what it feels like to have such negative feelings but I refuse to let those feelings or the condition define me, here I am to make a stand to renew my mind with God’s words. I invite you to join me.
Below is the journey of this “Feelings” range I have been on for a while now.
In 2005, I felt God called me to do inspirational bookmark designs called the “Feelings” range. But back then I did not have the skills to prep for print and as you can see nor my own photos.
In 2009, I did some more designs with my own photos from my local travels.
Then God blessed me with the opportunity to travel the world in 2011 and 2013 where we traveled to
Fast forward to this year, I present to you my latest range. The Inspirational Mounts Feelings range. After all these years, bookmarks are less popular and now my designs have grown 😀 Like literally; the smallest size of the mount is an 8 x 6″. I am planning to continuously expand my range with feedback from the community as to what images or bible verses help combat their negative feelings. The mounts below have been inspired by sermons or just bible verses which come to mind when I look at the photo.
I feel that God has put on my heart to create this Inspirational series for many years. Before I felt incompetent as I didn’t have the skill or photos.. I now have the know how and my own photographs from all over the world of various subjects in nature.My designs have grown to these beautiful light weight 8 x 6 s foam mounted prints.
The elements in this design are
The background image
The bible verse
I would love to hear from you if these prints [photo and bible verse, feeling text and encouraging word] below inspires you when you are feeling tired, anxious, confused, fearful, and complaining?
I would love your input in creating and expanding this Inspirational series
Are there any other “Feelings” which you’ll like inspiration for? please let me know so I can design something for you 🙂
What sort of images would help you through such times of difficulty?
