Cheryl's Blog

Super Saturday to ya!

Another lovely day the Lord has made and we rejoice and are glad in it! Yes...your girl is back.  I have not blogged in a while and feel that the season is upon me once again.  Stay tuned for some nuggets that will encourage you along the way.  Life can be difficult, and sometimes it only take one word.  That one word can unlock something that you have heard before and change your life.  That's what this blog is all about.  Not being preachy but maintaining a voice.

There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.

1 Corinthians 14:10

More to come on that one.  Have a fantastic Saturday and I will chat back at you later. Peace and Blessings.

Share the Love of God

Good morning beautiful people,

Marvelous Monday to each of you. I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  It was
a time of just pondering some things for me personally.  I have so many
different things going on in my head, my heart, and my spirit-man.  Yet
pressing to see what the end will be.  It can be an overwhelming thing, but
God designed me/us to handle it.  BLESS HIM!! I hope you are encouraged
today and pressing towards your goals and purpose.  Life is indeed so short
and we must make the most and very best of it.  There are certainly
reminders everyday all around us of the mercies and grace of God that keeps
us. We are not exempt from pain, distress, or sorrow. We just recognize that
it is the compassions of God that fails not and that he is faithful unto us.
Don't you just love Him?

The encouragement this morning for each of us is to just share the love of
God.  I just spoke with a woman that allowed me a little leeway into her
life. You could tell she has hurts with the church community and things in
her life that have prevented her from truly surrendering to God. My job
there was just to show her the love of God and encourage her to look beyond
those things and press towards HIM!! It is so important for us NOT get on
that bandwagon with folks when negativisms arises regarding the church and
this walk.  Listen, watch and pray! Then proceed forth as the Lord leads you
to minister.  Some folk are set in their belief system and it will take God
to change their mindset. Our job is merely to be that light and show them
the CONTRARY (reverse) of their belief system. As God demonstrated His love
towards us; likewise, we do the same to our brothers and sisters, regardless
of where they are in their belief system.  God IS love, and it is after all
His love that draws us.

1 John 5:1 (NKJV)

5 Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who
loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him.

Seasons Change

Good morning Beautiful people!

Hoping that each of you are encouraged this morning and had a great weekend. Wow what a beautiful beginning to this Fall season.  I love it! Isn't it wonderful when seasons change. Daniel answered, Blessed be the name of God forever and ever! For wisdom and might are His! He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and sets up kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding (Dan 2:20-21). Hallelujah! Like HE changes seasons He changes those things in your life....those circumstances. HE is in control!

You cannot skip a season to get to the next season.  You must go through it, but know that whatever the season you are experiencing it will change.  Season are just that: a period of time or term, and most importantly God's timing for your life. Our prayer is that we are able to discern the season that we are in so that we  are able to adjust accordingly.  You are not going to wear a coat in the heat of a summer day? You adjust what you are wearing to line up with that summer day. Likewise, we must keep our minds opens and our spirit in a willing state to make the necessary adjustments.  To everything there is a season, and a time for every matter or purpose under heaven.

May peace and favor rest upon each of you.


Don't get weary

Beautiful people!

It is a fabulous day that the Lord has made. We rejoice and are glad in it.  It has been a minute since we last connected.  I was out of town the prior week and had a fabulous time. Here we are back at work and so very thankful. God has been so gracious to me, to us and I will forever give him praise. I hope each of you are encouraged and yet determined to run with patience the race that is set before you.  "Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God." HALLELUJAH!!!

I encourage you to not be weary in well doing: For in due season we shall reap if we faint not. Don't lose hope and don't give up. Just when you think you want to give up, give HIM some praise.  It is at that appointed time and season that you reap. I am not telling you a bible story here.  I am telling you from first-hand experience that GOD WILL bring you out and see you through.  I believe we are in a season of reaping, but we must not lose hope and faint in our minds. Continue to press knowing that God is with you along the way.  No, better yet; HE IS IN THE WAY. Just follow HIS lead. 

Galatians 6:10 (AMP)

10 So then, as occasion and opportunity open up to us, let us do good [morally] to all people [not only being useful or profitable to them, but also doing what is for their spiritual good and advantage]. Be mindful to be a blessing, especially to those of the household of faith [those who belong to God’s family with you, the believers].

Blessing and love,

"In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."

Rejoice beautiful people,

I hope each of you had a wonderful weekend! I am just so grateful to be in the land of the living.  I may say that a lot, but it's so real to me. I find myself in that mode of worship as I sit here and think of His goodness.....and all that He has done and do for soul gives a thankful cry of Hallelujah!!! Oh how I love Him,  praise Him and thank Him! Have a fabulous week people and remember, "In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."

Be blessed by the word of the Lord: The entire chapter of 1 Chronicles 16: is awesome but I did not want to make this email too long, so I just chose a few verses that will bless you.  Blessings, love and peace to each of you.

8 Give thanks unto the Lord, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people.

9 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him, talk ye of all his wondrous works.

10 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord.

11 Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his face continually.

12 Remember his marvelous works that he hath done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;
23 Sing unto the Lord, all the earth; shew forth from day to day his salvation.

24 Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvelous works among all nations.

25 For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods.
27 Glory and honour are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place.

28 Give unto the Lord, ye kindreds of the people, give unto the Lord glory and strength.

29 Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

34 O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.

Remain Silent

Lovely day beautiful people!

I hope all is well and that each of you had a wonderful weekend.  I had a great one myself, but as you know they just go too fast! Whew!  Great is the mercies of God toward us and His loving kindness. Don't you just love Him for keeping you when you can't even keep yourself.  Thank you Lord!  I am adamant in thanking Him every opportunity I get.  As I often say it could have been me, in whatever situation....But for the grace of God.  I dare/we dare take His mercy, His grace for granted. He is faithful!

This discourse of scripture below speaks volumes.  I am learning to let the WORD of God do the work in my life. In those situations where you want to speak.....remain silent. Study to be quiet. "Silence is the element in which great things fashion themselves together." It is that space of time where you allow the word to work on your behalf.  Don't compromise your values when your character or integrity is attacked, but stand fast, remain silent, and LET THE WORD WORK. 

Psalm 27:1-5 (King James Version)

 1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

 2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.

 3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.

 4 One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.

 5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.   

"Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might!"

Hello beautiful people,

I hope all is well with each of you and that you had a wonderful weekend. We are so thankful to see another day and week.  I am constantly in awe of God and how He confirms and performs His word in our lives. Today I simply say, "be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might!" When I speak of "His might," I speak to His capacity (scope, amount) and His ability to handle everything we bring to Him.  He knows and understands all that will fall upon us. He is an Omnipotent (all-powerful) God and again has the capacity to keep everyone of us. 

We cannot be strong in our own capacity, because we simply cannot handle it.  We must be strong in the Lord because we draw strength from Him.  He gives us the power to stand in the midst of whatever fiery darts the enemy throws our way. So when we give our problems and concerns to Him, we must trust and know that He WILL take care of the matter. He will strengthen us even while we wait on those moments you want to quit. Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart. If we remain strong in Him, we have true strength to make it through.  Just a quick word of encouragement for somebody on today.  Much to do, but wishing everyone a fabulous week. 

Peace, blessings and love,

Isaiah 41:10

"Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand
