A Patient Heart…

A Patient Heart

Written By:  Cheri Coleman ~ 9/29/11

I am a woman with a patient heart

A heart that needs to be healed

A heart that needs to be forgiven and loved

I am a woman with a patient heart

God has been very patient with me

He has shown me kindness when I did not deserve it

 God knew that I needed change, and change I did

I have opened my eyes and ears

I see the error of my ways, and I am listening

To his words and promises

He promises to strengthen me so that

I can have all the endurance and patience to survive

Anything that comes my way

I am a woman with a patient heart

Safe In Your Arms

Safe In Your Arms…

Written By:  Cheri Coleman ~ 9/28/11

Lord, I know I am safe in your arms…

No matter what comes at me day by day

Teach me to keep my eyes on you

Take the focus off what I can’t control

And help me keep my focus on you ~ no matter what

It’s with you that I am safe in your arms…

Your arms wrapped around me give me comfort and peace

For I know that I am loved no matter what mistakes I have made

It’s with you that I am safe in your arms…

Times are challenging- regrets for past decisions

That have hurt ones I love

Instead of working thru issues, I chose a different path

A path full of heartache

Lessons have been learned

Grace and Mercy have been bestowed

Forgiveness is in the air ~ I know I will be alright because I am safe in your arms

Breaking Down Barriers

Breaking Down Barriers

Written By:  Cheri Coleman – 9/26/11

The barriers of the past are holding me hostage

 My barriers have divided me from being true

To the ones I love the most

Lord, help me break down barriers

To create a new life

Breaking down barriers…

Means rebuilding a relationship that is trusting

Lord, I agree to absorb and pay any cost for restoration

I can no longer run

Send me back to the place and people I ran from

Lord, I am breaking down barriers…

Help me be patient with others

Make allowances for each of our faults for they are many

Forgiveness breaks down barriers

Love breaks down barriers

Trust breaks down barriers

I am breaking down barriers

Embracing My Tears…

Embracing My Tears

Written By:  Cheri Coleman ~ 9/26/11

God I am dying here, help me to lift myself up

The tears just keep flowing like a river

I know I have made mistakes, please get me back on track

Embracing my tears will help me heal…

God why was I so foolish?

Why is this pain so intense?

I just want it to all go away!

Embracing my tears will help me heal…

You have brought me to my knees

So that I could see what I had done

God why was I so foolish?

Why is this pain so intense?

I just want it all to go away!

Embracing my tears will help me heal…

God I desire an unfailing love

Your love is all I need, nothing else matters without it

I no longer care what other people think

I care about what you think

God why was I so foolish?

Why is this pain so intense?

I just want it all to go away!

Embracing my tears will help me heal…

Trusting in you is the only way

I have no other choice

All options have been taken away

Perhaps for my own good, it no longer matters

I have lost my one true love at my own hands

God why was I so foolish?

Why is this pain so intense?

I just want it all to go away!

Embracing my tears will help me heal…

Doing The Right Thing…

Doing The Right Thing

Written By:  Cheri Coleman ~ 9/25/11

How many times have you done the wrong thing

When you know you should have done the right thing?

Why is doing the right thing so hard?

In my heart, I know what I must do,

Yet I somehow always did the wrong thing

It’s a choice one makes out of fear

Fear of being judged, and not accepted for

Mistakes or choices made

Going forward I will only do the right thing

Because when you do the right thing, you are having

Faith in the other person to also do the right thing

Trust is key in doing the right thing

Honesty is key in doing the right thing

Love is key in doing the right thing

Commitment is key in doing the right thing

Going forward, I will only do the right thing.

Real Love…

25 Sep

Real Love…

1 Corinthians 13

Written By:  Cheri Coleman ~ 9-24-11

What is real love?

Real love is a deep emotional connection

Between two people who truly feel each other’s emotions

God knows our pains, fears and insecurities

He also knows our dreams and desires

What is real love?

Real love is unconditional

It’s forgiving and unfailing

Real love can handle any circumstance

Real love does NOT expect anything in return

I desire a real love, one that is patient and kind

Never jealous, boastful, proud or rude

Love will not demand its own way

Love is not irritable, keeps no record of wrong doing

Love never rejoices over injustice

Love rejoices when the truth comes out

Love NEVER gives up

Love never loses faith and is always hopeful

Love will always endure thru every circumstance

Real Love lasts forever ~ no matter what!

Moving Mountains…

Moving Mountains

Written By:  Cheri Coleman ~ 9/25/11

God says that he can move mountains

What mountains do you need moved today?

Do you worry about your relationships, health and job?

God says do not worry, have faith like a mustard see

I can move mountains that you can’t see

Just give ALL your problems to me

And you will see…

Moving mountains is MY job not yours

You MUST have faith to see

As nothing is impossible for me

When you believe
