I Am Needed, I Am Wanted, I Am Loved…

I Am Needed, I Am Wanted, I Am Loved…

Written By:  Cheri Coleman ~ 7/25/11

God tells me I am needed, I am wanted and I am LOVED

What does God need from me?

God needs me to trust him no matter what!

There will always be bumps in the road

Yet with God in the driver’s seat, the bumps will be smoother

God listens to me every night as I cry myself to sleep

He knows my heart’s desire

God knows what I need…

What does God want from me?

God wants me to have faith in him

He will not forsake me, nor leave me

 I am saved when I have faith in God

Faith in the unseen is when God performs a miracle

Having faith means looking for opportunities

Instead of the negatives, I am expecting good things

Because I know I am wanted by God

I am loved by God…

No matter how many mistakes I make

I know that God will always forgive me unconditionally

I just need to remember to ask him

God loves me just the way I am, because he created me in his imagine

I know I am loved and it’s forever…

I am needed, I am wanted, and I am LOVED!

Wisdom for Life’s Journey…

20 Jul

Your life is a journey ahead of you.

Each day is a new beginning.

Yesterday is a friend that will guide you.

There will be good times and bad times;

Cherish the good, because they make life sweet,

But be thankful for the bad,

For through them you come to know

The important things in life

And the meaning of life.

There will be times when you face

Difficult decisions,

And you won’t know which way to turn.

The important thing is that you make a choice,

And move forward.

There will be times that test your strength and endurance,

But don’t give up;

Refuse to accept defeat,

For perseverance is the key to success.

there will be times when you are hurt by love.

Forgive those who hurt you

So that your heart will be free to love again.

There will be times when you make mistakes.

Remember that mistakes are not a reflection of your self-worth,

But of your humanity.

Nor do they make you less of a person.

Because of the lessons you’ve learned,

You’ve grown and become wiser.

There will be times when your search for happiness

Leads to frustration and disappointment,

But don’t stop believing in happiness.

Being happy with yourself goes a long way toward

Knowing happiness in your life.

There will be times when life seems unfair,

But don’t allow it to make you bitter

And steal your joy.

Nothing is worth this.

When fear stands in the way of reaching out for your dreams,

Confront them and you will conquer them.

There will be times when your faith is shaken,

But don’t despair,

It will rise up and carry you above the storm and to victory….

I Believe…

I Believe

 

I believe …That just because two people argue, it doesn’t mean they don’t love each other.
And just because they don’t argue, it doesn’t mean they do love each other.

I believe…That we don’t have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

I believe…That no matter how good a friend is, they’re going to hurt you every once in a while
and you must forgive them for that.

I believe…That true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.

I believe…That you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

I believe…That it’s taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

I believe…That you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

I believe…That it’s taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

I believe…That you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

I believe…That you can keep going long after you think you can’t.

I believe…That we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I believe…That either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I believe…That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done,
regardless of the consequences.

I believe…That money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I believe…That my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.

I believe…That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re down
will be the ones to help you get back up.

I believe…That sometimes when I’m angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn’t
give me the right to be cruel.

I believe…That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you’ve had and what you’ve
learned from them and less to do with how nmany birthdays you’ve celebrated.

I believe…That it isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I believe…That no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn’t stop for your grief.

I believe…That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we
are responsible for who we become.

I believe…That you shouldn’t be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life Forever.

I believe…Two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

I believe…That your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don’t even know you.

I believe…That even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you –
you will find the strength to help.

I believe…That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

I believe…That the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.

I believe…That you should send this to all of the people that you believe in. I just did.

The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have.

God’s Love Is The Foundation…

14 Jul

God’s Love Is The Foundation

God’s love is the foundation for a healthy relationship

God is firm, strong and unchangeable

When our friends come and go and life throws you curve balls

God will be the one who is your rock, your anchor in the storm

He will never fail you…

When everything in your life is taken away from you

God’s love is the foundation…

It’s this love that will sustain you, his word, his presence and his promises

He will never fail you…

God’s love is the foundation…

Remain strong in his truth, pray for guidance even when everything

Seems like it is crumbling around you

Have faith that God will see you through and bring forth his promises

It’s the strong foundation of love that God provides that helps us

Navigate the storms of life…

He will never fail you…

God’s love is the foundation…

It’s Time To Let You Go…

13 Jul

It’s Time To Let You Go…

Why is letting go of someone you love so hard?

There was a time, when I thought it would be easy to let go

However, over the months of soul searching, I have come to realize

That I did truly love you…but I now know that

It’s time to let you go…

I don’t want to, but you have given me no choice

Just like I gave you no choice

Why is letting go of someone you love so hard?

It’s letting go of the couple we once were

When we first met, we both felt that God had brought us together

From that first magical kiss and everything after

Our love was full of passion, adventure, and drama

In the end it was the drama that did us in

Why is letting go of someone you love so hard?

Because I am still so in love with you, but I have no choice but to let you go

To let you live your life and for me to live mine

Maybe someday God will bring us back together…if that is part of his plan

For a second chance at love…but for now

It’s time to let you go…

Trust Is The Foundation…

12 Jul

Trust Is The Foundation…

In all relationships…Trust is the Foundation

Without trust…there is no commitment

Without trust…there is no communication

Without trust…there is no honesty

Without trust…there is no respect

Without trust…how can there really be love

God turns up the pressure to test our level of trust

Committing to God means turning every aspect of our life to him

Commitment is for life, no exceptions

When there is commitment…there is trust

Communication is vital, for if the message is not received correctly

Relationships will break down

Choose your words with care to avoid unnecessary battles

When there is communication…there is trust

Honesty is the best policy – it always wins out

Try being honest – even when it hurts

God knows our hearts intimately and only wants the best for us

When there is honesty…there is trust

Respect for all works in your favor – as you never know when God will

Use someone to help you or haunt you

Respect for yourself and the one you love is God’s gift

Respect is concern for another person as well as being an encourager to the person you trust the most

When there is respect…there is trust

Love is more than just butterflies in our stomachs

It’s knowing that the one you love will always have your back even when they do not agree with decision’s you have made

Love is accepting at all costs ~ no matter what

Love is giving until it hurts – and love hurts

Love is forgiveness at all costs

Where there is love…there is trust

Where there is trust…there is true love

Just Reach Out…

11 Jul

Just Reach Out…

God says, take my hand – are you willing to reach out?

God wants to fulfill your heart’s desire

Heal your pain and fill your heart with forgiveness

And most importantly, give you lasting love…

God is love

God is forgiveness

With faith God can heal any relationship, illness or addiction

Just reach out…

Let God lead you, for he knows the plan

Don’t be afraid, for when you fear, you have little faith

In God’s power to bring about a miracle

A miracle above all miracles

Are you ready to reach out?
