W A V E S (of Glory)



The black waters surrounded me. It was like I was drowning in the despair of darkness. 

When will this be over? Am I almost out of the wilderness, Lord? How long? Have you forgotten about me?

I brace myself for another wave. The water is just as black as the sky. The moonlight showing the only glimmer of hope...or so I thought.

Another wave is creshendowing to hit me.  

CRASH.

The broken piece of wood I am laying on to buoy me on the waves is rough beneath me, but nevertheless, I am grateful that it is keeping me afloat. 

CRASH..CRASH! CRASH!!

I gasp. I pant. I choke up water. My hair is blinding my eyes.

CRASH.

I am choking. I am drowning. Well not just yet, but I can't seem to get a break from this...

CRASH..

God why me?

CRASH!

God I can't take anymore..

CRASH!

Help me!

CRASH!

I can't even cry because saltiness is all around me.

"Change your perspective. "

I hear that voice. I know THAT voice. It's My Love. But apart of me feels like My Love has forsaken me.

"Open your eyes again. Trust Me. Change Your perspective."

I close my eyes it all goes black.. Okay, I will trust you. 

CRASH!

I open my eyes hoping for change, and I marvel at what I see.

That piece of wood under me had become a boogie board, with floral decorations.

The sky above me is a pure crystal blue. No clouds, the sunshine constant.

The crystal blue water, sea through teeming with fish and coral under me. The scene of Hawaii. 

A wave comes and I'm floating on it. 

CRASH!

It crashes over me with the same magnitude, but yet, I'm excited for it. I want the wave to come.

It's refreshing...fun even. 

I turn around to see His Glory right behind me. He's right there with me. Smiling down, Smiling toward me.

I'm at Peace. I'm in Peace. He's Peace. He's Got me.

Let's Ride these waves My Love. 



"For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39


Prayer:

Thank you Abba for using me to do what I can't do in the flesh, preach your perfect Word. Thank you for letting me hear Pastor Lindsey say that and thank you for his life. Lord, I bind the spirit of fear, it is a liar. Thank you for giving me the vision of this post. To comfort me when I felt like I was alone, but yet, I was never alone. The waves were to perfect me and to get me to where I need to be, to reflect your son. May the readers Lord, prepare their heart to receive this Word. Lord we come against  lying Spirits of fear and insecurity, may they chose to trust in you. To change their perspective and to see your glory in the mist of the storm. Lord thank you for saving us Lord. Thank you for being the best lifeguard. Thank you that we will wake up from sleep and clap our hands and rejoice in you. This morning thank you for fashioning my hands to clap Lord as I was still half sleep and awake, to wake up praising you. May that be the readers portion as well. You give us praise instead of mourning and joy instead of despair. You are so so good and you are so faithful. It is well with our soul. Lord lead and direct our day today, may prayer and you be the center of everything we do today. May we worship you constantly and purely from the depths of our soul. We need you. Lord cover staciecherill.com with your Blood and use it as a vessel. Lord cover my parents and Last Call Ministries in your Blood,  cover my father, The man of God, and equip him to do what you called him to do. And fashion my mother to continue to praise you. Thank you for their lives. Lord We love you. We bind the Spirit of fear and suicide in Jesus's name from the readers lives, their families, lives and my life and families life. We bind that foul spirit of suicide from intimidating us. We praise you Lord. All Praise and Honor and Glory go to you. You are perfect in all your ways. May I not look at numbers but see souls, and rejoice if this post fed one person. Feed your labors Lord.  Raise up The Body of Christ to be BOLD. We love you. Thank you Abba.

In Jesus's Holy Name
Amen 


Thanks for reading, have a beautiful day in The Lord,
