Cheryl from Port Macquarie came out of an abusive relationship and has been trying to find her feet for the last couple of years. Her healing process began after her brother introduced her to Vision.
‘God has definitely blessed me with Vision,’ said Cheryl. ‘I have the app with me all the time. I travel a lot for work, and I can listen to the podcast when I can’t sleep at night. Or, I put it on when I’m feeling anxious or scared, and I never feel alone. Even when I didn’t have a church because so much change has happened in the last two years as I’m trying to find my new life in my new freedom with God. I haven’t had a church. Vision has been my church. There are so many beautiful things with the Prayerline and the preacher’s sermons. It’s just such a blessing to me. It’s very special.’
God continues to bless Cheryl as she looks to God daily with the help of Vision. The app has so many valuable resources at your fingertips. There’s something to suit everyone of all ages.
‘Vision keeps pointing to Jesus, and this is the beautiful thing,’ said Cheryl. ‘The closer you get to God, the more you want to hear about Him in every aspect of your life. This is why Vision is so fantastic … I’ve even found my new life coach after listening to a great interview with Peter the other day. There are so many great things that keep coming at me, so I want to keep giving so that you can bless other people as well and encourage other people to keep shouting out to God and keep looking to Him for hope and encouragement and love because that’s the one true place we can always get it.’
Phil Edwards, Vision’s CEO, reminds us that the word of God is alive and powerful. It’s sharper than any two-edged sword. And when we allow it to penetrate into our lives, we get that transformative effect.
When Cheryl was asked why people should give during Visionathon, this is what she said:
‘I would say, just get on and do it. It’s one of those things where if you’re toing and froing about where to spend money, this is one of the best investments that you can ever think of because it’s not just going to bless you, it’s going to bless thousands and thousands of other people because God is behind this. And anything that God is involved in is something that is worth investing in. So please don’t delay. Jump on and rock on Visionathon!’ said Cheryl.
Cheryl admits that during Visionathon, she keeps a box of tissues handy as she listens to all the stories people tell about how Vision has impacted their lives.
‘It’s so encouraging to hear how people are finding hope in God and in Vision. It’s so special. I really love it. There’s just so much content that keeps coming at you. I feel so encouraged by this every day. It’s really brilliant,’ said Cheryl.
Now’s the time for action! You’ve heard what Cheryl has had to say. You’ve heard the transformative effect that this continual flow of encouragement and God’s Word has had in her life, coming from a pretty dark past. It’s time to sow some seeds right now.
As Cheryl said, we hand over our money for all sorts of things every day without giving it a second thought. It might be to buy a cup of coffee, put petrol in the car, or go out for lunch.
