Making The Best Of The Storm


Over the last few days, I have been thinking a lot about storms. Storms are scary and cause us to become afraid. I know when I go through storms in life fear rises, and I am afraid.

Ever since the hurricane hit Texas, I have watched a couple of videos of people worshiping and praising God through that storm. I have watched Texans come together and help each other. I have seen people from other states come and help other’s out. The Cajun Navy from Louisiana come with their boats and rescue people from their homes. Since I am a visual learner seeing this that has actually shown me that when I am going through my storms I can worship God in the middle of the storm and I know there are people that will be there to help me through the storm, but most importantly is to remember that God is right in the middle of the storm, and while worshiping him and giving thanks in the midst of the storm I must reach out for his help in the midst of the storm. He is truly the one that can help us in our storms of life.

While I have been thinking about storms and all the troubles that are going on in the world today, I think of a song that I heard many years ago by Lanny Wolfe titled,

Peace in Jesus in a troubled world today. 

Their little boat was tossed about upon the stormy seas The disciples woke the Master crying “Lord, save us please!” Then Jesus spoke with authority and commanded: “Peace be still!” And instantly every wind and wave obeyed the Master’s will 

There is peace in Jesus in a troubled world today There is peace in Jesus, and the world can’t take it away Though there’s trouble all around I’m so glad I have found 
There is peace in Jesus in a troubled world today 

So many times I’m tossed about upon life’s stormy seas, And though the winds of trouble blow, my Savior pilots me For I know Peace be Still guides my little boat, I’ll not fear the wind or wave, For he who’s kept me safe thus far will keep me all the way

My prayer is that no matter what we go through instead of fear taking control of our lives, we pray to find the Peace of Jesus after all he controls the winds and the waves in Life. So to make the best of the storm is to allow God to control the storm.

Who Can Really Love The Reject

Orphans of God by Avalon

Who can really love the reject?

This afternoon I spent more time reading the book The Primal Wound: Understanding the Adopted Child”, by Nancy Verrier. While reading it the statement who can really love the reject was mentioned and it got my mind going in many different directions.

We have a problem in the world of adoption. The voices of the Birth mothers are heard, the voices of the adoptive parents are heard, but the voices of the adoptee tend to go by the wayside. Should their voices be heard as well? I think so. Because of the separation that takes place from the first mother adoptee’s deal with issues of rejection. I would be lying if I said that I didn’t deal with issues of rejection. I deal with issues of rejection. When things happen to relationships in my world that are hard for me to deal with I look at it as abandonment or rejection and people have to reassure me that they will always be there for me. Not that long ago I had to talk with my Pastor about some things and he told me, Sherry, you’re the one with the voice crying in the wilderness. That made me think.

I am adopted and I was also conceived from rape. Back when I was adopted so much information in the adoption records were fabricated because who really would want to adopt the rapist baby? I mean really who would want to raise the baby who would turn out to be like the rapist. I have news for people in society who think that babies conceived in rape turn out to be like the rapist you are so very wrong. I have yet to understand as to why when a woman is raped and conceives why all of a sudden she is treated like trash and she and her pre-born baby are looked at as rejects. What is wrong with people who automatically say she should have an abortion after rape. Having an abortion after rape only adds to the trauma that she is already going through. Instead of treating the woman and her baby like rejects why not love them and their pre-born baby.

I am thankful to live in a country where I have my freedoms, but those freedoms could be taken away so fast. It breaks my heart that we have many veterans who are homeless and they get treated like rejects as well. Why can’t we find it in our hearts take care of our veterans who fought for our freedoms? We live in a world where rejection is a big problem.

If we took the time to care about the reject this world would be a better place. Take time to love an adoptee who deals with issues of rejection, take time to love a woman who was raped and love her preborn baby don’t reject them, take time to love the homeless person on the street, take time to love the children who are in foster care, and the list of people who deal with rejection goes on.

Let’s look at Jesus. Jesus rejected no one, but yet he was rejected. Isaiah 53:3 says He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were [our] faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

If no one finds it in their heart to really care about the reject I know someone who really cares about the reject and his name is Jesus. Psalms 27:10 says When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.

God’s Word Trumps Hillary Clinton’s Beliefs On Abortion




This has been on my mind so much the last few days. This morning I looked up the scriptures about God’s words remaining. It was very important that it is written 3 times in the New Testament. Matthew 24:35  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. Mark 13:31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. And in Luke 21:33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

Last week I read an article on  about Hillary Clinton saying  Religious beliefs against abortion must be changed.  When I read this I just shook my head and said Lord help us.

We live in a World today that is so messed up. It’s like what is right is now wrong and what is wrong is now right. Wrong, Wrong and Wrong again.

The Word of God has always been and always will be. God has always been and he always will be God.  Acts 4:12 says, Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. 

Hillary Clinton can not make people change what they Believe in. She will never make me change what I believe in and I am 100% Pro-life Noexceptions.  Not only is it that I believe abortion is murder, but it also says in the Bible “Thou shall not kill.” Since the Bible is the written word of God and God’s word remains abortion will always be murder.

To be Accepted



Waking up this morning I thought about being accepted. With being adopted I can relate with many adoptees that struggle with rejection issues and have a hard time with being accepted. With being adopted myself I struggled with rejection and acceptance issues. Within the first 8 weeks of my life I was in the hospital for a week and my birth mother and I had some bonding time, than I went to foster care for about 6 weeks and then to adoptive home. A lot of people make think because I was a baby and don’t remember that time that it should not have affected me.

The need to feel accepted and to be accepted is something that everyone at sometime or another probably struggle with. Not an easy thing to go through because then you feel alone and that no one cares. What we forget to remember is that Jesus Christ cares for us and he accepts us.

I was looking for some verses this morning on being accepted and there are some that I want to share.

Ephesians 1:6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

I am so thankful I have a God who accepts me and cares for me. He sees the sparrow that falls and he sees everything that we do and he cares for us and we are valuable to God.

Chosen..As A Secret Weapon

Chosen by God


Ever since I have shared my story in church, it seems that I have been hearing my Pastor taking that stand against abortion more than ever. Just the other day I was thinking the other day when is he going to mention abortion again, and it happened last night.  Last night my Pastor preached on this topic Chosen..As A Secret Weapon. Immediately I thought about the many babies that could have been aborted, but were saved and protected from an abortion.  I then thought about all those that I have met that were also conceived in rape and mothers from rape. I thought God these that are conceived in rape and mothers from rape are secret weapons that you are using to be a light and more and more are coming out and letting their voices be heard.


The Scriptures that my Pastor used are from Isaiah 49:1-5

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The Lord hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name.

2 And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver hath he hid me;

3 And said unto me, Thou art my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.

4 Then I said, I have laboured in vain, I have spent my strength for nought, and in vain: yet surely my judgment is with the Lord, and my work with my God.

5 And now, saith the Lord that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the Lord, and my God shall be my strength.


When my Pastor read these Scriptures, some things hit me.  God knew how my conception would come to be, and God alone called me from the womb and from the depths of my mother he made mentioned of my name. God knew my name would be changed and what my name would be even before I was born.


God has given us a mouth to use to speak the truth. We must always speak the truth. Standing up for the life of the unborn with being 100% Pro-life No exceptions is standing up for truth.


God has kept us in the shadow of his hand. God protects us and going through life God polishes the rough edges and makes us into secret weapons that he wants use for his glory.

John 8:10-12 (KJV)

When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

I know that we have all done things that after we did it felt guilty and the last thing that we needed was people condemning us and coming down on us. What we needed was gentleness, kindness and love.

I know personally of two women that at a point in my life came and told me that they had an abortion. It broke my heart to hear this. I listened to them. I never once condemned them and told them that they where a murderer. There are too many people in society that do that to women. That is the worst thing that can be done. I showed them the love of Jesus Christ

Women that have abortions are dealing with regret, feelings of being worthless, and emotional pain. As Christians, we need to show them the love of Jesus Christ, that they are worthy and that Jesus is a mender of broken hearts, broken lives and secret wounds.

I remember listening to a song by Point of Grace titled, “Heal the wounds, but leave the scars.” I have my own set of scars that remind me of a painful past, but Jesus Christ has forgiven me and through him I have been made worthy. He has redeemed me and set me free.
