Faith>Fear {A Look at the New Collection from Illustrated Faith} #IllustratedFaith

Fear.

That's a word that many of us are all too familiar with. And not without reason. We turn on the news and we are bombarded with more reasons to be afraid. Hate groups, rising crime rates, natural disasters. Oh how easy it would be to lock ourselves into our homes and live a life full of fear!

But that's not what the Bible calls us to do. In fact it is packed full of verses telling us just the opposite:

I’ve commanded you, haven’t I? “Be strong and courageous. Don’t be fearful or discouraged, because the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”- Joshua 1:9 

What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?- Romans 8:31 

“Peace is what I leave with you; it is my own peace that I give you. I do not give it as the world does. Do not be worried and upset; do not be afraid.” John 14:27


These are just three of many verses I could share. But the message among them is quite clear. Our faith must be greater than our fear. We are not called to be fearful, but to be bold. In a world full of fear- we are called to be brave. In a world that is black and white, we are called to be that pop of color.



Still... that's often easier said than done! Sometimes we need that extra reminder in the Word of just how big our God truly is. We need reminders of faith overcoming fears, and how strong we are with God on our side. I find when I sit down to journal in my Bible, this is a topic I journal about time and time again. So, when I saw the new Illustrated Faith collection Faith>Fear, I could not wait to dive in!





The new Bible Journaling Kits made that easy! In addition to pieces available to purchase individually, each of the new collections is also available in a convenient Bible journaling kit featuring some of the most popular products from the collection.

Each kit will include:


  • 3 Cardstock Sticker Sheets. 136 Stickers. These stickers are fantastic! They have a similar look to die cuts but much easier to use. 
  • 1 clear sticker sheet, 19 stickers. Don't like the white outlines on the cardstock stickers and want a more seamless look? These are ideal. The lettering will just blend right in!
  • 35 die-cut pieces. Die Cuts are among my favorites. Not only do they look great in your journaling, the feature prompts (bible verses) on the back to help you get started. I love having this inspiration when I'm not sure where to begin. 
  • 1 roll washi tape, 36'. This washi design features the words, 'Rejoice, Love, Forgive, Pray and Trust'.
  • 1 tip-ins booklet, 24 pages - 12 designs. These offer plenty of space for journaling prayer requests, personal journaling and more. They perfectly fit the margins of most bibles. They can be pasted directly to your bible or attached with washi to flip open for more journaling below!


As you can see this particular collection features a simple and gorgeous black and white design. Black and white can be fun at times, but if you know me, you know I love COLOR. What I love about these is that you can truly add the color to them. Use watercolors to add color to the stickers and die cuts for a completely one of a kind look. OR you can instead keep these as they are and use colors elsewhere on your page. With a bright background, these black and white pieces will truly POP... they'll be a great representation of living boldly for your faith. I think what I truly love most about this collection is that it gives you so many options. You can truly add any color- or not- to find the perfect fit for your style and journaling needs, all while being reminder that your Faith>Fear.

Need more? There are stamps, paper pads and more that can be added to the collection too.

Faith>Fear is just one of the three brand new collections just released from Illustrated Faith. You can also find Gratitude Documented and Advent available now at Dayspring.
