When Your Soul Becomes A Desert

September 29, 2022

This blog was originally posted in 2016 but is still a pertinent message from Cherie Hurt for today. I used to write just as much as I breathed—or at least that’s what it felt like. I would go to bed with my next blog post in mind. I would often find myself scribbling notes across […]

Soaring Through Your To-Do List

September 22, 2022

I am a doer, a task-oriented person. I like to make a list and check things off. In fact, I ‘m so bad that sometimes if I do something and it’s NOT on my list, I write it down just so I can have the satisfaction of checking it off. Do you ever grow weary of […]

Love With No End

September 14, 2022

From the moment we are born we are instilled with the quality to love others. Wide-eyed infants in need of nourishment, we associate love with the comfort of another individual. Oh, to be a child again and feel what it’s like to love others with nothing holding you back! No judgment, no hatred, no record […]

Walk in Love

September 8, 2022

The Father is reminding me to “love better” everywhere I turn. Most recently the reminder has come in Ephesians 5:1-2, “Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children.

Silence. Do you ever crave it, wondering just what secrets lie in its wake? Sometimes, I find myself wishing for the pause of a moment, for the simple elegance of bliss. That sort of feeling when for once you don’t have to wake up to an alarm, but rather to the silence of a room […]

Scatter Sunshine

August 18, 2022

In life we have innumerable choices we can make. Some are important and others are simpler—yet one of the most important is how we choose to respond to life’s circumstances. I will be the first to tell you that I was the emotional child of the family—the kid who made sure the entire house knew […]

You Will Walk Free

August 11, 2022

I’m a visual person. But not in the way you’re thinking. Perhaps there is a term for it that I’m unaware of—but my form of visual learning comes through words that create pictures. It is no shock to me as I tend to view and see things in this way. Perhaps it is a way […]

Clean Your Windshield

August 3, 2022

“I want to be broken over the sins of my heart. I wish I grieved over them more—even the little sins.” A friend said this to me recently and I have been pondering her words ever since. She was concerned about the casualness of her heart toward those sins we deem “small.” Her reasoning? Not […]

But whoever drinks from the water that I will give him will never get thirsty again. In fact, the water I will give him will become a well of water springing up in him for eternal life.” – John 4:14 (CSB) I stare at the mess, dreading the next several hours of my day. The laundry […]
