After years of marriage to an unsaved alcoholic, at age 34 Sherry finally left her husband. Brokenhearted and attempting to escape her pain, she became an alcoholic herself.
“For 16 years, I struggled with addictions and toxic relationships with men,” Sherry now says. “I also had destroyed my relationships with my mother and children, and I was physically malnourished and spiritually empty.”
One day Sherry called in sick to work and grabbed a knife to slash her wrists and end her life. That pivotal moment is still vivid in her mind: “Facing overwhelming emotional pain, I cried out in desperation: ‘God, please help me if You can!’”
Suddenly, Sherry heard a voice coming from one of the Inspiration Ministries Campmeeting broadcasts—though she hadn’t even been aware the TV was on. As if speaking directly to Sherry, the speaker said boldly, “You will NOT kill yourself!”
“I sat straight up in bed,” Sherry recalls. “Seeming to point directly at me, the speaker on the screen said again, ‘You will not commit suicide today, because you are a precious child of the Most High God!’”
Recognizing this word was for her, Sherry responded back and said, “Okay, Lord, I choose to live!”
But then Sherry felt the old doubts begin to flood her heart again. “God, if You truly want me to live, how can I face all the struggles and addictions in my life?”
At that, she heard the Lord gently reply, “I will be with you.”
Sherry has been free from addictions for several years now, and God has also restored her health and her relationships with her mother and children.
“I’m so grateful for the impact you and your Inspiration Partners have had on my life,” Sherry says. “Now I am Sowing back into the Good Ground of your ministry. As God has blessed me, I want to be a blessing to others.”
