because God has poured out his LOVE into our hearts by the Holy Spirit..." Romans 5:5

Cherish Today

I CHERISH where I am today!
Some days, I still cherish where I am...
I just do a very poor job remembering how to show it.
2 Chronicles 20-21 tells us that He is to be PRAISED
even as we are going into battle!
With sick kids, the passing of a family member,
neglect from loved ones, and company upheaval,
praising Him tends to be one of the things I forget to do.
And I confess.
Revelation 5:12 tells me WHY I am to praise Him
even through my trials and battles.
Don't be discouraged, dear ones!
I appreciate you as my readers, customers, friends...
He appreciates you as His CHILD.
Do you need help in praising Him through your circumstances?
There is One that can help you do this.
"Then the church throughout Judea, Galilee and Samaria
enjoyed a time of peace.
It was strengthened; and encouraged by the Holy Spirit,
it grew in numbers, living in the fear of the Lord."
Acts 9:31
Praise Him and discover His peace.
Cherish today, my friends!

I needed this reminder today. I have been in a "blah" stage lately. I try to cherish where I am in life, but I often neglect my faith and forget to do so. Thanks for reminding me what it's all really about. :) I love the Cherish creation.
