Thank You, Jesus

Posted by Cheri Akers on

Thank you! It is something we say when someone gives us a gift. At times, it just rolls off the tongue as if it is a duty rather than a sincere statement. I used to work at a school, which gave me a new perspective on gifts. I really had to teach myself that, although perhaps I didn’t...

On Thursday, January 7, 2021, I posted (jokingly, of course) a meme on my Facebook wall that read, “I’d like to cancel my subscription to 2021. I’ve experienced the free 7-day trial, and I’m not interested.” If you follow the news at all, you would probably say that...

Rejoice in the Lord

Posted by Cheri Akers on

Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you is no trouble to me and is safe for you. — Philippians 3:1 As we have walked through the Philippians series over the last several weeks, it’s not lost on me that all of Paul’s writings were created from...

Am I Ready?

Posted by Cheri Akers on

For the last six months, I have asked myself a question over and over, perhaps more than I have ever questioned it in my life: what is the Lord doing? I know and believe that he is in this, working for our good, and that he will use the world’s current happenings to bring honor and glory...

My Night in the Belly of the Whale

Posted by Cheri Akers on

Today, I will open my devo with a full confession: What you are about to read is totally based on First-World problems. I admit it. But as an average, middle-aged mom to a 20-something college graduate daughter, what is, more often than not, the logical next step? For your daughter to be engaged...

Three-in-One and One-in-Three

Posted by Cheri Akers on

God never ceases to amaze me. I love the way he reveals himself. And the unexpected times are my favorite times, like Sunday during the sermon. As I began to listen, the subject of the new series, A Spirit-Filled Life, was recently familiar. And then it dawned on me: it was the exact material we...

Resisting the New Normal

Posted by Cheri Akers on

When Paul asked in his sermon on Sunday if we had ever experienced being blind, I took it a little personally. You see, a year and a half ago I joined the “50s Club”. My loved ones celebrated me, pampered me and let me know how much they loved me. If I was basing it on the day, my...

Childlike Prayers

Posted by Cheri Akers on

During this week’s sermon, we learned things we can do while we are in the waiting. I am an extrovert, so being confined to home is hard for me. I find myself trying to think of any essential reason to leave the house, for anyone. Waiting is hard for me, especially in solitude. It makes me...

Because He Lives

Posted by Cheri Akers on

True confession time: When I agreed to write this devotional based on Sunday’s sermon, I did it with the full knowledge that it was for me as much as it would be from me. It is hard to step back and look at life and realize how much has changed in a week. We are each surveying how it will...

Freedom In Forgiveness

Posted by Cheri Akers on

When I received the email reminding me that it was my turn to write the daily devotional, it was at an interesting time for sure. I had no knowledge of the subject matter ahead, but just a few hours before, I was having a conversation with our eight year old regarding an incident that had...
