Christian Devotions on Suffering
We do not like to talk about Christian suffering, but it is a part of this life we will all experience. Christianity and suffering are terms that seem to go together, but we never go through it alone. When we are suffering for Christ, we suffer with Christ; he is with us every step. These devotions help provide the meaning of suffering in Christianity with new perspectives to help encourage you through your darkest moments.
All Devotions on Christian Suffering
At Seven11, we capture faith-inspired photos to allow God to lead us to each message we write. This process means that each message is full of art that activates our visual senses, creates deeper meaning, and binds the photo with the devotion it inspired. In addition to our own blogs, we are article contributors with Crossmap, so check them out! And our latest Christian Photography and devotionals collection, Immersion, is now available for purchase as a hardback or a paperback Bible study. This is a great way to immerse yourself in faith inspired photography and words of truth and encouragement! Our profits go to the International Mission Board (IMB). So, it’s a great way to learn and be inspired by Christian topics while helping spread Christianity around the world. Great study for families, small groups, or as a unique personal devotional.

Seven11 Inspiration Photography -Our Story
Our Start in Photography
Seven11 was founded by Jon Frederick, an award-winning storyteller who captures thought-provoking photos for international publishing. His captivating work has exhibited across six continents: varying photographic genres including wildlife photography, landscapes photography, portraits, fine art photography, still life, abstract, architectural, commercial, lifestyle and street photography. But he will tell you that none of it had a real purpose until he began with Seven11.
Refocusing on God
In 2020, Jon could no longer ignore the weight on his soul and decided to leave his freelance work to focus his talents on God. As a result, he began by sharing his knowledge and experience by offering free online courses on the essentials of photography for beginners. He mentored beginner photographers and instilled confidence that they could be great artists while staying true to their Christian values. Shortly after, he created the concept of faith-inspired photography.
As he began developing this new conceptual art form, Jon and his wife, Kathleen, took a leap of faith and started Seven11. The concept was to pull inspiration from their photography to author devotions, encouraging others in their walk of faith. They chose Seven11, which is when they joined their own lives to God through marriage on July 11, 2010. So, now joining their talents for God’s use, Seven11 was born. That’s when they became Christian writers with purposeful photography.
Seven11 is now dedicated to creating Christian Inspiration Photography, based in the beautiful southern town of Newnan, Georgia. Their goal is to create image galleries and devotionals for enjoyment and Christian inspiration. All blogs are totally free of charge including exhibit photography paired with Christian messages, a free photography online course, a gallery of Christian memes, and regular blogs on topics for beginners and seasoned photographers, alike.
So, if you are interested in the mission of Seven11 and bringing Christian photography to the fine art community, please follow us on one of our social media outlets and subscribe to our blog and Podcast. Our growth brings high quality, family friendly, wholesome art back into galleries and into the public’s view. Thank you so much for reading and we pray you find something encouraging from our site that you can share with others. We never regret putting a little extra joy, love, and faith in your life!
