About Me

Hi everyone,

This is my first blog and I’m very excited to share my thoughts about faith, love and life with you. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, cousin, friend and woman of God. I am a poet, speaker, writer and playwright. I have a passion for helping others see the best in themselves despite their circumstances or the limits placed on them. I strive to see life through the eyes of God, but my vision isn’t always clear. I am human and flawed. I am courageous and scared at the same time. I am complicated, yet easy to please. I am Sherry R. Jones and I thank you for your interest in my blog. I look forward to getting to know you. Sherry speaks, but I listen also. 🙂

As stated above, I will discuss three main topics; faith, love and life. Today, I want to share some of my thoughts about faith.

“Trust in the Lord will all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5 (NKJV)

This is one of my favorite Bible verses. I try my best to trust the Lord with everything, but it’s not always easy to do. How do I trust Him when there are more bills than money? How do I trust Him that healing is on the way when a loved one is faced with a health issue? How do I trust Him that my child will be okay when he is having difficulty in school? How do I trust Him when the goals I want to accomplish seem so far out of my reach? I don’t know how I do it, but I do.

Newborn babies don’t know how to trust that they will be taken care of, they just do. They know that if they cry someone will come and figure out what needs to be done. Oftentimes I’m like a baby crying out when things are not right in my life. I don’t know how things are going to work out, but I know my Father will come and figure it out.

That’s faith. Trusting things will work out before they do. Believing beyond what you see. Not depending on your understanding, but knowing that God knows all. Following His path, not yours. Giving Him glory in everything you do.

Faith is a major part of who I am. Faith pushes me forward when I want to run back. Faith allows me to strive to be more than I dreamed I could be. Faith is my foundation. It has been shaken from time to time, but it has always held me up.

What is faith to you? Is it important to you? What role has faith played in your life? Please share. I look forward to hearing your thoughts. God bless!

    Sherry,

    I am going to enjoy reading your blog on a regular bases.
    Faith for me has and always be an important factor in my life. I strive to make sure that if i have nothing else in tact my faith is because without it i would not be where i am today. I thank my parents for in stilling in me at a very early age faith in God, as well as faith in my fellow man.

    • Hi Sharmon! I’m so happy you have decided to be a regular. I pray that I am able to continue to write blogs you will enjoy.
      You are so right about having that foundation from your parents. My parents also instilled faith and love in me as a young girl. Although I strayed away for awhile I found my way home and that’s what’s most important. God bless you!

    Love your blog.

    I must tell you faith has been a struggle for me during my Christian faith but God always has a way of bringing me to knees so that I know he is the only one in control.

    Your future blogs will remind me who God continues in my life faithful.

    We have to learn to trust God even though we don’t understand what is happening to us and we have to trust God when he say no to our prayers and answer them in a different way than what we wanted. He knows what is best for us and he does things for our good and his glory

    • Thank you so much for your comment Wanda! You are so right. Sometimes our prayers are answered totally different than we expected, but it’s always on time. He wants the best for us and we have to trust His way. Be blessed and stay encouraged in the Lord! Have a great evening!
