Sherman's testimony

Testimony summary:
Sherman shares how she went to a catholic school and prayed when she was young. She would pray when she wanted something, she didn't attend any services or fellowships. When she grew up she realised she was creative and artistic. She told God, this talent is something you have put inside of me. She entered a talent contest and from there entered the entertainment industry. She talks about the clashes of the entertainment industry and her reserved personality. 

She talks about how she found God. She says people turn to God when they are in despair. At times she asks where God is when she feels numb on stage- she felt angry at God. At that time, a pastor visited HK and called her. She told the pastor her frustrations and stress. She had thought that if she acted better, did certain things she could earn God's love. The pastor told her that it's not the case. God loved us even before we were born, he loves us in spite of our weaknesses and bad performances. 

Many people seek idols, etc to gain inner peace. 

Sherman was invited by the pastor to sing a love song she looked around but couldn't find an appropriate song. She asked God for a miracle to write a song within a few short days. The song writing process was joyful for Sherman. The song's title is you are still my dear. When she sang this song, people were so moved they were crying. She gives all honour and glory to God. God's love doesn't make sense, he loves her despite the things she has thought and things she has done. 

Although she knows God exists, she is a pessimist. It's easy to lose sight of the purpose you were made. She was worried that she would lose her way in the entertainment industry because there weren't many christians around. She saw how those around her started to believe God and change their lives. She couldn't believe that a christian cd would sell so well. Everyone has a responsibility to spread the gospel, taking every opportunity. Sherman herself felt that she was inapt to spread the word, but was willing to put herself out there to be used in furthering God's kingdom. 

My thoughts: Sometimes I have the same thoughts at Sherman, although I know it's not directly related to behaviour, I sometimes can't help be try to want to please God through reading the bible diligently, etc. I too am still learning and growing. I know that God loves me despite who I am. 
I also see the changes of those around us. If I don't keep moving forward, I will lag behind. There is nothing special about me, but God has allowed me to share his message to others. God has also chosen you to spread the gospel to those around you.
