OK, are you ready? I’ve had this word on my heart for you all week. Usually I’m wondering what the prompt will be right up until nearly midnight myself. But this week – this week I think a few of you at least need this word…Go

Cherished I am. But sometimes I don't feel like I am Cherished.
Sometimes I feel lonely.  Sometimes I feel rejected. It's during those times that He seems so quiet.  So distant. But yet all I need to do is look around and realize that I am.  He is the lover of my soul.  Speaking quietly.  Giving quietly.  Just waiting for me to remember that He is with me.  That He is there.  Gently loving Cherishing.  And He cherishes our time together.  When I sit and talk to him.  When I tell him about my day.  When I tell him I feel.
When I am hurting.  When I am happy.  He wants to listen.  He is the perfect friend.  The perfect lover (of my soul).  Because He just listens.  No back talking.  Never allowing distractions.  Just focusing on me and Cherishing me.  I am Cherished.Stop

Hi Sherry!

It is so powerful when we start to accept the reality that we are cherished by Him...beautiful. Linked after you at Lisa-Jo's. I have to say I also love the horse picture on the right with the snow...beautiful image! Have a wonderful weekend!

Thank you for this lovely reminder that we all are indeed cherished. I got a chuckle out of the "no back talk". I'm a mama of three boys so that spoke to me. Have a great weekend. Rosanne

So great to "meet" you, Sherry through these FMF posts! It is so easy to NOT feel cherished, isn't it? Oh, that we would always rest in truth and remember how God does cherish us- perfectly!
Love your honesty in this post- it felt very much like a Psalm of praise. Thank you for sharing!

Knowing that you are cherished when you don't feel like it is the hard part but you are right...we certainly are!

Thanks for the reminder!

Hi Sherry. Love this reflection on being cherished. My favorite part - "no backtalking". Makes me feel bad for all the backtalking I do!! Great to meet you through FMF!
