  • When Things Don’t Go As Planned

    Did your week go off,  just as you planned?

    Well… if yours did, I’m happy for you, but mine… not quite. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, things just don’t go as planned.

    When Things Don't Go As Planned

    When Things Don’t Go As Planned

    I was so excited last Friday when I got my blog and email out to you. If you’ve been on my list for over a year, you know I was pretty quiet in 2021. That last lockdown from January to June seemed to knock the stuffing out of us all here in Canada. 

    In the email, I told you all about the new radio/podcast show I was releasing… but it didn’t release. Production was held up and there was another rerun, but what was a frustration for me, was God’s timing for others. I had people messaging me on all different platforms letting me know how that episode was just what they needed! 

    God Knows How To Get You Where You Need To Be

    It’s interesting how this all happened, but for me it really was an example of how God Knows How To Get You Where You Need To Be (the title of tomorrow’s episode). Lots of things didn’t happen as I planned them, but even what seemed like a problem to me, God used it for His good in other’s lives.

    The fact that I just received a book delivered to my doorstep as I’m writing this called, The Gift of the Unexpected by Jillian Benfield is evidence that God is up to something good! (Gonna have to have her on the show!)

    A verse I use in the show seems to fit the bill for the happenings of this past 7 days..

    Isaiah 30:21 Voice Behind youDon’t Fear When Things God Wrong

    Life happens and we get off track, things go awry, we start walking… or running the wrong way but God will just turn it around or tap you on the shoulder and help you find your way back on the path. Either way, He’ll work it out for your good as it says In Romans 8:28. Even when things don’t go as planned, God has a plan!

    Tomorrow’s Show

    I think tomorrow’s show will speak to your heart as God was really speaking the message to mine when I wrote and recorded it. Familiar passages, with a deepened understanding. (See details below)

  • Catching A Vision For The Future

    It’s in taking the time to look back at last year that’s helping me catch a vision for the future and I can’t wait to start living it!

    323_Catching A Vision For The Future

    Catching A Vision For The Future

    It’s hard to believe that Christmas and New Year’s are behind us.

    This is the time when we tend to reflect on the past year, while envisioning our hopes for the new… and that’s the headspace I’m in right now. Reviewing the past, to catch a vision for the future.

    God Knows You Need A Vision of The Future

    You might have heard Proverbs 29:18 quoted from the King James Version, Where there is no vision, the people perish” but I think the ESV is closer to the original language as it translates this verse to read: Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint,” or how the NLT says, When people do not accept divine guidance, they run wild.” And I think my favourite translation of the verse is from the CSB,

    Pr 29_18 CSB Devo 323

    Wait For The Vision

    When we’re making plans for the next year or trying to set a 5-year plan, it’s imperative that we spend time waiting on God to hear His direction; and then follow it. When I don’t, I feel like I’m running wild, taking shots in the air… and mostly missing. I don’t want to do that this year, and I’m guessing you don’t either. I want to live on purpose, on mission.

    There’s a sense that this year is critical, a pivotal time in the history of the world. I want to make sure you and I are following God’s lead to make the greatest impact.

    Review & Envision

    I challenge you to take some time, like I did, to write out key life events from 2022 and prayerfully envision this year. If you need an example, you can see mine HERE. Then, get moving to make those dreams reality!

    Prayer

    Father, I thank You for giving me dreams and visions for the future. Your Word assures me that you speak to Your people, so I can be confident that you will guide me. Help me to wait for Your Word, hear it, and follow through to completion. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    2022 YEAR IN REVIEW

    I’M A LEGIT PREACHER NOW 🙂 

    CredentialsIn January of 2022 I started the process of re-applying for my Licensed Minister Credentials with the PAOC as I had let them lapse since I had my son Brandon. I never stopped ministering, I just didn’t have credentials.

    At the end of June, I found out they were reinstated. In October, the week of our Refresh Conference, Todd and I attended the WOD Minister’s Gathering in Collingwood, Ontario. There were powerful services where you could feel the presence of God. We had such a great time visiting with old friends and making new ones.

    85 Female pastors Table at the 2022 WOD Minister's Gathering I was super excited to attend the breakfast for female ministers. There were 85 in attendance!!! At my table of 7, five were Lead Pastors and two of us in non-traditional ministries. I think our fellowship is changing in positive ways toward women! Praying this happens in all churches around the world.

    2022 BEST BLOG OF THE YEAR AWARD

    Won The Best Blog of The Year AwardIn the fall of 2022, I received The Word Awards – Best Blog of The Year award for writing in 2021 from The Word Guild; Canada’s most highly esteemed Christian Writer’s Guild. This is the second award the blog has won, but this time it’s the highest award a blog can receive. WHOOT! WHOOT! I can’t tell you how much this meant.

    FIRST REFRESH LIVE WOMEN’S CONFERENCE!!!!!!

    On October 22, 2022… dreams came true for me and my team! Since 2019 we’ve been talking about, planning and preparing for running live events… and then gave up as lockdowns seemed to never end. So, when in August it seemed the Lockdowns were really over, we quickly began planning our first-ever Refresh Conference for women!

    We’ve heard such life-changing testimonies from women and are excited to get planning for our next one. With just over 230 women in attendance, we raised $1,542.00 in the offering for our missions trip to Kenya! One girl attending has signed up to go with us to Kenya (possibly another) but more women expressed interest in coming on future Missions trips with us (Check the next one out in the 2023 Visions section).

    BACK TO IN-PERSON EVENTS

    We were able to be a part of the annual Single Mom’s Event at Braeside Camp again. Jenn Chamberlain from our team joined me and led the girls in fun with games and giveaways. I spoke on the Friday night and for a seminar session on Saturday morning.

    See Hear Love Christmas Event SpeakingIn December I was back to traveling for speaking! I spent a week in the GTA, speaking in Newmarket at Cedarview Commutity Church to over 225 women and did a little sharing at the See, Hear, Love TV Show Christmas Event held at the Crossroads Centre for my friend Melinda Estabrooks. If you don’t watch this girls show yet, you wanna check it out. It’s sooo good! I was on in year two of taping but the show and set have changed so much since then.

    THE RADIO & PODCAST SHOW—Year 3!

    Soul H2O Show Joy Radio Original Sherry StahlAt the end of December, I had a great meeting at the JOY Radio.CA Station with Matt, the owner. I’m super excited for the upcoming year of teaching and guests the show is going to feature. Matt has offered an opportunity for me that has blown me away.

  • Advent Inspiration For Your Christmas Season

    Advent Inspiration For Your Christmas Season

    To me, Christmas is the second most important holiday season on the calendar, next only to Easter… and Easter couldn’t have happened without Christmas. This post was created to be some Advent inspiration for your Christmas season.

    Birthdays during the Christmas Season

    In my family, we have three birthdays that take place during the month of December. Over the years, we’ve not always been able to get together to celebrate them on the exact day of their births but we honour their lives just the same. 

    The reality of this makes me totally fine with using December 25th, or January 7th if you’re an Orthodox Christian, to celebrate the birth of Jesus, even though He really was a Fall baby 🍁 👶🏼.

    Taking a whole season to reflect on why Jesus left heaven to come to earth and become our Emmanuel, “God with us” should make you feel so loved. Pondering on the fact that Jesus gave up the comforts of heaven for you should be the inspiration you need to celebrate.

    You’re that important to God! 

    Celebrating Jesus Birthday

    To provide you with some Advent inspiration for your Christmas season, I’ve compiled a post full of Christmas-themed, 🎄Advent-inspired 🕯resources to help you celebrate Jesus’ birthday. Each year, this post will be updated with more festive finds and Quick Links to help you maneuver through them. There are:

    • ~🎄Christmas themed Blog Posts
    • ~🎄Christmas themed Soul H2O Devotions,
    • ~🎄Christmas themed Messages,

    • ~🎄Christmas themed Spotify Playlist #musicpic Songs 
    • ~🎄Christmas themed Books
    • ~🎄Christmas themed Holiday Sales (little gifts 🎁 from me to you)

    I hope the resources listed refresh your soul, put your heart ❤️ in the right Christmas spirit, and fill you to OVERflowing!

    Merry 🎄 Christmas,

  • A Real Chip Off The Old Block

    Have you ever heard the saying…
    She or he’s a real chip off the old block?

    Soul H2O Devotion

    A Real Chip off The Old BlockA Real Chip Off The Old Block

    I can look at my kids and see their gifts and misgivings. Most often I recognize how the way they are, seems to be a lot like me. Brandon has always cared about the underdog and never been good at sleeping because he hates to miss out on things. Shelby’s a geek with excel like me, she’s fun-loving like her momma and inherited the clutzy gene too. 

    Their chips, are often chunks off the old block.

    sherry, brandon, shelby
    sherry, brandon, shelby 2
    sherry, brandon, shelby 3

    “Chip Off The Old Block”

    That phrase a chip off the old block makes me think of Isaiah 51:1 that challenges us to inquire about things, to ask the deeper questions when it says:

    “Listen to me, all who hope for deliverance— all who seek the LORD! Consider the rock from which you were cut, the quarry from which you were mined.                       
    Isaiah 51:1 NLT

    Do you realize what this verse is getting you to ask? 

    Who’s the block you’ve been chopped off?

    The Block & Chip Maker

    Psalm 139:13-14 confirms that God created and formed you in your mother’s womb and Genesis 1:27 makes clear that God made you in His image, are you starting to see that Isaiah 51:1 is hinting that you’re a chip off the old block from the one who made you in HIS image?

    Graphic from Soul H2O Show Episode 120

    No matter if you’re short, tall, skinny, curvy, shy, bold, dark skinned, freckled or fair… how you’ve been made is wonderful. You’re a real chip off the old block and your creator is so happy with his work! Don’t let the enemy of your soul cause you to feel less than.

    Live in the confidence that God made you and He loves you! You are A Real Chip Off The Old Block, made in the image of God, how can you be anything, but good?

    Prayer

    Father… Thank You God for recording truth in Your Word that tells me what You think about me. Help me combat the lies I’ve believed about myself and help this new revelation sink deep into my soul. I am a chip off Your block, created in Your image. I am good! In Jesus Name…Amen

    Wanna go a little deeper?

    In Episode 120 on the Soul H2O Show I go a little deeper with this devotion and share some more insights to help build confidence in WHO GOD SAYS YOU ARE!

  • Gather The Girls Together!

    Right from the heart of God… a call to Gather The Girls Together!

    Soul H2O Devotion

    The Lord said, Gather The People Together
    and I will give them water.
    Numbers 21:16

    REFRESH CONFERENCE GET THE GIRLS TOGETHERGather The Girls Together

    I read this verse and was blown away that I’d never noticed it before. It was a timely word the Lord brought to my attention earlier this week. I feel it was just another confirmation that we’re doing the right thing by putting the Refresh Conference on next Saturday. Answering an ancient call to gather God’s people together, so they can be refreshed by Him!

    Where The People Were At

    In the portion of Scripture where this verse comes from, the people of God were tired and worn out. They’d been fighting battle after battle. One of their favourite leaders; Aaron, the brother of Moses had just died. They wandered around the desert, thirsty for water to feed their bodies and souls.

    The struggle was so intense it says in verses 4-5 of this chapter that they began to grumble and complain about how difficult their circumstances were and God got fed up with their bad attitude.

    I know you’d never be like that, but me… 
    I might be a little #guilty of it!

    I Don’t Have It All Figured Out

    I don’t write this to you as someone who’s gotten this right all the time, but someone who keeps picking herself off the floor whenever she falls. God sees your human frailty and loves you in spite of it. 

    This verse is so amazing to me because right after the people failed their test of faith, God still gives them a promise and brings them to the water. 

    I believe God has something great for you at the Refresh Conference. It’s no mistake you bought a ticket, or someone bought it for you. 

    Get Yourself Ready

    I encourage you to start spending time in prayer today, asking God to prepare your heart for what He’s about to do in you! I know He wants to build you UP!

    We’ve been gathering HIS girls online for the past couple of years and now *live* an in-person! If you’re one of the girls who’s answered the call and is coming the Refresh  💧 Conference next Saturday… I can’t wait to see you! 

    Refresh Conference Gather The Girls TogetherIf you know of anyone sitting on the fence about coming or God has brought them to your mind as you’re reading, why not contact them and see if they might join you… but don’t delay, today is the last day to buy tickets (details below).

    Hope to cya soon!

    In His Grip,

  • Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable

    Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable is a Deeper Waters post, kind of like a mini-Bible Study and I know it will really challenge your faith and inspire you to trust God with more of your life. I really encourage you to download and use a Soul H2O Journal Page to help you get the most out of this post and draw from the MANY Scripture references in the Drawing From The Well section at the bottom.

    Soul H2O Deeper Waters

    Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable

    Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable

    Last weekend Todd and I both spoke at a Pechakucha Night put on by his amazing friend, Andy Vasily.

    Pechakucha-20 x 20 slideIf you’ve never heard of Pechakucha, it’s a gathering of friends designed by renowned architects Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham where presenters share a 6 minute, 40 speech with 20 slides that change automatically every 20 seconds.

    Let me just say, It’s a challenge. Even though I love presenting and even get paid for speaking, I saw this as a challenge. Believe it or not, speaking longer is actually easier than speaking for such a short time, trying to memorize so your words match the image on the screen was a challenge for me, especially when I was a month past due for my B12 shot!

    Both Todd and I had an incredible time at the event and heard some amazing speeches. We both got a little lost in our slides at times (like many people did), but at the end felt better for the experience and know we could improve next time.

    Getting Out of Your Comfort Zone

    Pushing yourself out of your comfort zone is a good thing and, if you want to follow God, you’ve got to get comfortable being uncomfortable.

    Taking a look how Jesus discipled his followers should be our big tip-off to reveal this about Christ’s character. Take the disciples’ experience in Matthew 14 for example.

    From Feeding To Floating To Sinking—Then Walking on Water

    Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go ahead of him to the other side, while he dispersed the crowds. 
    Matthew 14:22-33 ESV

    Peter and the boys had been helping Jesus run a missional event where they got to take part in the miraculous feeding of 5000 people! Even before the crowd was gone, Jesus directed the disciples to get to the other side, making them go by way of the water, in a boat. Soon after, the wind and waves began to batter the boat and they feared for their lives.

    Now before you start that Oh, Jesus wouldn’t have been so pushy and made them go into a potentially life-threatening circumstance, let me help you understand the original wording of this verse in Greek. Anagkazó is what many many Bible versions translate as “made, insisted, compelled, constrained, or directed” could just as easily been translated as “forced” since Strong’s Concordance and other Bible Dictionaries say the word means “to force, compel, constrain, urge”.

    Jesus didn’t come to make you comfortable; He came to make you a brave witness.

    Jesus isn’t concerned with your comfort level and is completely comfortable, making you uncomfortable.

    Once Jesus led them to a place where their faith could be tested, this is the place where Peter’s faith rose to the level of confidence in God’s strength where he was able to walk on water. Ya, he did allow fear to creep back in and started to sink again but this faith-building exercise is what I believe God used to help construct a foundation of faith in Peter that would one-day grow so strong that he pushed through and preached, leading thousands upon thousands to faith in Christ.

    Jesus Is Totally Fine With You Feeling Uncomfortable

    The reality is, if you don’t get stretched, you don’t grow. When God allows your circumstances to push you beyond your natural limits, that’s when His ‘super’natural kicks into gear. You can trust you have what it takes to pass through these troubled waters, just like the disciples did because God clearly believes you can!

    Philippians 4:13

    I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13

    You don’t have to walk in your own strength, God’s offering His to you each day. Be like Peter, step out of the boat and get comfortable being uncomfortable, the water’s just fine!

    Prayer

    Father… Thank you for all the examples in the Bible of flawed people, just like me, overcoming difficulties and reaching their destiny. Help me to get get comfortable being uncomfortable, so I don’t miss out on watching your strength displayed in my life, leading others to put their faith in you when times get tough.
    In Jesus Name…Amen
