Run to God

Biblical Sculpture by Sherry Heller


Shalom Precious Ones,

I hope you are staying well during this COVID-19 global pandemic. This is a time to call on God and cry out to Him in our distress. Many are running TO God during this painful time, but unfortunately, there are also those who are running AWAY from God because they don’t realize that He is THE ANSWER and THE SOURCE OF HELP that our world desperately needs. Feeling helpless is not a comfortable feeling. Recognizing that we are dependent on God’s mercy and grace every moment of our lives can be humbling. But humility is a good thing. 

“When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.” Proverbs 11:2 (NIV)

“Humility is the fear of the Lord; its wages are riches and honor and life.” Proverbs 22:4 

“Before a downfall the heart is haughty, but humility comes before honor.” Proverbs 18:12

“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8

“He mocks proud mockers but shows favor to the humble and oppressed.” Proverbs 3:34

Jonah, the Biblical character, was a man with a divine assignment from God. But when God gave Jonah a tough job to do, he ran AWAY from God instead of running TO God and calling on HIS grace, mercy and strength. 

“But Jonah ran away from the Lord and headed for Tarshish. He went down to Joppa, where he found a ship bound for that port. After paying the fare, he went aboard and sailed for Tarshish to flee from the Lord.” Joan 1:3

But eventually AFTER Jonah suffered for running AWAY from God, he turned TO God and cried out in his distress, and God answered his cry.

He said: “In my distress I called to the Lord, and he answered me. From deep in the realm of the dead I called for help, and you listened to my cry.” Jona 2:2

God is faithful! We MUST get that revelation if we are going to be able to stand in these perilous times. 

NO MATTER WHAT—WE NEED TO RUN TO GOD FOR HIS MERCY, GRACE, STRENGTH and POWER TO STAND. He cares and loves us more than we could ever comprehend in our finite minds. 

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6

Heavenly Father, help us to be steadfast in our faith and trust in YOU, no matter what. Remind us to run TO YOU and not from You, especially when we are going through trials, struggles and any crisis. You are there waiting to impart the strength we need.

Fear Not

Biblical Sculpture by Sherry Heller


Hello Dear Ones,

At the time of this writing, we are facing the horrible Coronavirus pandemic. Life as we know it has been turned upside down for many of us. Churches are shutting their doors, but thankfully, many can still stream their services online. Stores are out of basic supplies like toilet paper! Many are not at all prepared for anything like this. I wish I could say this will all blow over and life will get back to “normal.” But that is not necessarily so.

We live in perilous times, and we need to live close to God every moment. Most likely everyone reading this is either in a crisis, coming out of a crisis or preparing to go into one. This is life in 2020. And if you read the Scriptures, you know that much worse is coming. 

But the GOOD NEWS is that God is still on the throne and always will be! And we can come through any trial and crisis victoriously as we stay hidden under the shadow of HIS wings.

I hope you are staying well and practicing wisdom in all your decisions. I want to encourage you to “FEAR NOT” and look to the Lord during these times. I hope you are trusting HIM with your life. I know It’s easier said than done at times, but we must not allow our thinking to go in the direction of the ditch and hopelessness.

Here are some Scriptures to meditate on that can get us through this crisis victoriously:

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Psalm 91:7

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”

Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.

He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,

nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.

A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.

Dear Ones, while I’m home working on my inspirational sculptures, I hope everyone reading this will be inspired by God’s promises in His Word and His faithfulness. We have a great cloud of witnesses in heaven cheering us on to victory! Stay well.

But before you say goodbye, take a look at my sculptures and be inspired by the characters in the Bible who also faced trials.

We Are the Clay

Biblical Sculpture by Sherry Heller


Shalom Dear Ones,

I pray you’re having a blessed day or night wherever you may be.

I really enjoy working on my sculptures. Creativity is very therapeutic.

We are made in the image of God, and He has given each of us talents and gifts that fulfill an innate desire to be productive. He gave us that desire to be productive and fruitful to not only satisfy our hearts but also to bring Him glory. 

And creativity is in our God-given DNA!

Our Heavenly Father is the Master Sculptor, and He knows exactly how to make and mold us for our good and His glory.

Isaiah 64:8 says it well:

“Yet you, Lord, are our Father.
    We are the clay, you are the potter;
    we are all the work of your hand.” (NIV)

I pray you are using your God-given gifts and talents to bring glory to the One who deserves THE HIGHEST PRAISE!



Here’s a picture of me working on casting and molding my Samson sculpture.

Daniel Emerges Out of the Clay

Biblical Sculpture by Sherry Heller



I’m working more on Daniel in the Lions’ Den, and although it’s still a lump of clay, I can see Daniel slowly and powerfully emerging as I lovingly draw the figures out of the clay.

Sculpting is a process, just like life. Our lives can often look like a big, lumpy mess, but don’t stop there because beneath it all is a beautiful work of art that just needs the MASTER SCULPTOR to mold and shape it. Look to HIM for what He sees in you. Let HIM have HIS way and HIS say.

Beliefs and devotion can be a wonderfully expressed through art, and I am so excited to bring you my inspirations and labor of love through my Biblical sculptures.

The characters in the Bible are very inspiring to me as I work on my Biblical sculptures.

My hope is that you too will be inspired to not only recognize the Biblical characters but also know and understand the amazing stories in the Scriptures related to the Biblical sculptures.  

I’ll let you know as soon as Daniel in the Lions’ Den is finished and available for purchase!
