Have you had days when you just struggle to get out of bed? Here is something I have created as a reminder that we can do all things through Christ who gives us the strength 🙂
Something special and powerful happens when we proclaim God’s words over our lives. So what you do is, buy this mount and put it either on your bedside table or wardrobe and while in bed, proclaim this over your life out loud.
“I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength”
It was my 1st ever hike on a mountain in my life. It was like a near death experience from the searing pain in my back and also climbing up very steep parts.
Even the 2 friends I was with who were experienced hikers found it difficult! Glad that I survived it with God’s help though:D I kept speaking out loud ” I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” with each step I took.
This is the view when I was done with the hike, it was so beautiful and a good reminder that with God all things are possible!
Tomorrow is Good Friday and I thought I’ll be fitting to pay tribute to Jesus the lamb of God. With this photo, I took of this lamb at mt Snowdon. It was the toughest climb I ever undertook. Without God I would not have been able to finish the climb. If you are struggling in life, call out to God. He will save you.
“Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
Blessed Good Friday my friends
Today is the day where Jesus died for our sins, illnesses, hurt, pain and failures.
Jesus was God in flesh so He felt pain, He knows suffering.
He knew what it was like to be seperated from God when He took our sins upon Himself.
I think that’s why Jesus would know what depression feels like.
He also would know what being anxious feels likes as He prays to our Heavenly Father to take away the cup of suffering.
So praise the Lord we can cry out to Him and He can ampathise! That means so much more to me.. That He ampathises.. He knows what I’m going through. He’s felt it before..
Not only can He ampathise.. He’s taken it upon Himself!
So let us all leave all that’s afflicting us at the foot of the cross..
Last week I was inspired by a Sermon by Chrishan at Hillsong, Perth
Here is what I took away from it.
Faith has feet, take some steps, walk something out.
The bible verse is
9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Be Strong and Courageous because you’ll lead.The thing which you are struggling with, and overcome with God’s power is the ministry we are called to.For me, I suffer from Fibromyalgia. It’s a chronic condition which feels like you have a cold, your head is foggy, your body aches and you are tired all the time with no motivation. The worst thing is, you never know when the pain will ever stop, so it caused depression and anxiety.My heart is for those who have depression and anxiety. I have made it my life mission to inspire hope through my life, photography, designs and music.
Hence the slogan; Sights and Sounds Inspiring Hope. Your outlook is your prognosis
Meditate on what God has said.Another thing that I feel God told me to do is to renew my mind with His words. This is why I began designing these foam mounts. You can display it by your bedside or on your wall.Where His words and His beautiful creation will inspire you no matter what you are going through. I believe God is showing me how to overcome the depression and anxiety. I invite you to join me on this journey of renewing our minds with His words His truths.
God is with us
As you begin to climb, it’s possible. God is there to lead us.
Haha.. I also can relate to this when I climbed Snowdon in Wales. I was in so much physical pain, it was my 1st time hiking up a mountain. There were scrabbles and vertical climbs.I had to cry out to God to give me the strength to preserve. I spoke out the words “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. ” I proclaimed it over my situation..When you climb the mountain, it may feel like it’s an impossible task but remember there’s a promised land on the other side that God has promised us.
We just need to take the step of faith. I’m still climbing my mountain. I can’t wait till I get to the other side. In the meantime I’ll persevere and trust in the Lord!
I personally can relate to this sermon. I felt God call me to do “The Feelings Range” and to write the “EP Mosaic Heart” for many years. I kept saying I can’t, I don’t have the photo or the skills. it’s too hard. Why me? I’m not good enough.
But the moment I say I can’t but God can through me. Nothing is impossible with God. The moment I submitted my will to God. The moment I said, not my will but Yours be done, God made the way.
It’s taken a while but I am finally at the place where I am on the journey climbing this mountain. I’m not just going to camp at the foot of this huge mountain. I’m going to rely on God to equip me for what He’s called me to do.
I’m so glad that God doesn’t call the equipped, but equipped the ones He called
I pray and hope this post and this design inspires you to not settle for anything less then God’s best for us. Lets us climb the mountain into the promise Land; His good and perfect will! Let us encourage each other on!
