Seek His Face


I love those quiet morning hours before the hustle and bustle of the day when I spend my alone time with God. It is spending time in His word and praying that I find strength for the day, strength to meet the trials and whatever else the day may hold. Just as God says:

My voice shall you hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer to you, and will look up. Psalm 5:3

The Lord Jesus wants our love, and we have a sweet sensation when we greet Him each morning with, “Lord Jesus, I love You.” The more we tell our Lord we love Him, the more our love for Him grows, and the more we enjoy His love for us. Our hearts become soft and open to Him.

17 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice. Psalm 55:17

You can have such wonderful encounters with God when you approach His throne in the morning.  I encourage you to start praying when you wake up if you aren’t already doing so.  When you wake with God you take Him with you too.  God bless you as you live a life worthy of His calling.

Blessed is the man that heareth me, Watching daily at my gates, Waiting at the posts of my doors. Proverbs 8:34

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that I will stay focused on you today.  I pray that You will constantly remind me to be content in all of my circumstances.  I pray that You will fill me up that I may be joyful all day, even if stress creeps in.  I know that through my contentment, You will be glorified.  I want to honor You, Father, in all that I do.  I praise Your Holy Name!  Amen


Author: Cheryl Downum

My name is Cheryl Downum, 2015 was a difficult year for me. I chose to separate from my husband because of his unrepentant abusive behavior and a year later we divorced. I moved from Atascadero ca to the Temecula Valley in Socal. As I’ve walked this journey, I’ve found myself growing closer to Jesus. My heart is now infused with empathy for others that find themselves in this place. And, God has given me a story, a message of hope to share. A message birthed in my brokenness that brought forth a sweet-surrendered dependence on God’s unconditional acceptance and love. The reason I am writing this blog is; I have found in my life that the Lord often uses our deepest pain as the launching pad to our deepest calling. My desire is to encourage His children to seek a deeper relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. I hope that as you read my blog, you will feel inspired and encouraged. Thank you for visiting!
