John 15:5 & John 6:9-13
God can take what little we have to offer & He can make it (& us) MORE than enough to make a difference for Him.
I’ve noticed when I feel completely foolish, in over my head, and way out of my comfort zone, I’m usually on the right track with this faith thing.
Kerri is a beloved daughter of The King. A few years ago she started praying for God to reveal what HE wants her to do every day instead of making her own To-Do Lists.
He restored her confidence that had been stolen when she was a little girl. Who can give the gift of confidence (peace and joy?) Only One.
From a frightened, sexually abused girl to a woman God’s using to make a difference in the world, Kerri accepts the changes He’s made in her life and is thankful that He has shown her that her true worth is in HIM –
And now there’s no going back.
Sometimes you don’t choose your ministry. Sometimes your ministry chooses you.
She feels God has put it on her heart to write a blog found at https://itisallaboutfaithblog.wordpress.com/
Kerri feels God is calling her and her family to move to Alaska (from Texas) to open and care for a homeless teen place. Check out the Alaska Homeless Teen Center Stuff page https://itisallaboutfaithblog.wordpress.com/alaska-homeless-teen-center-stuff/ to read more about this. She feels called to help people have a safe place to stay for a while, help teach interview and job skills, budgeting, and celebrate people who may not have felt much reason to celebrate lately, and above all else encourage people to have a closer relationship with Jesus.
Many people have told her God doesn’t lead people anymore. This is not a question of her faith but of theirs. The God Who made every detail of every detail is surely able to guide people and pour out His plans as He chooses to into anyone He decides to. So the questions are: Do you not believe He does? Or do you not believe He’d call someone as insignificant as she is? From what The Bible says God has often called the least likely to do some pretty incredible work.
Her daily prayer goes something like this:
Dear God, Thank You for always being with me. Please show me what YOU want me to do today. Please guide today and don’t let me miss Divine Appointments You have. Please help me know who to talk to and what to say, and who not to talk to and what not to say. Please help me know how to say it. Please help me listen well and hear what You want me to hear. Please align this day with You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

There is just NOTHING people can talk about that won’t offend somebody. Talking about “nothing” is bound to offend someone. Talking about God will offend someone, just as NOT talking about God will do. You just have to have courage to write what He puts on your heart to write.
