Sherri’s Tips for Success
There is great joy in “doing your part”. None of us can do it all, but each of us can humbly before God ask what He wants us to do. There is no greater fulfillment than knowing you are being the unique expression of God’s love to the world in whatever format He has for you. God is not impressed with self effort. That is a dead end street. He longs to live through us every day. Purpose and passion are so closely connected. Don’t ask God for more until you are willing to use what you have already been given.
Sherri’s Favorite Quote
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths. ~Proverbs 3:5-6
