My Story….In Poetry

21 Oct

I have shared my story…in poetry over the past year.  It has been a journey that I am soooo grateful for having.  You see, without the experiences that I had, I would not be the woman I am today.  Trust me, I am NOT perfect…I still make mistakes – and big ones. However, instead of viewing them as mistakes, I am going to view them as lessons.  The more lessons I learn the better person I will be!

I know that GOD has a “special someone” for me and I am in NO hurry, as I want to make sure that I make the right decision going forward. I have made mistakes in the past, however, I refuse to live with regrets, every experience has been beautiful and painful; yet, I choose to continue moving forward and remain positive. I believe that it is far better to forgive the person that has hurt me ~ as well as keeping them in my prayers – remember they are hurting too. This small thing has allowed me to move on.

My journey continues and I am going to experiment, by going deeper within myself to share my story in more depth a little at a time. I hope you will continue with me, as I so appreciate all your comments – they are so encouraging and I thank you!

Stay tuned for “Stronger Than I Know” ~ my story in poetry 🙂 book!!!

    Cheri,

    You inspire me!… Making the decision to take your past situations and experiences and learn from them. I know that God uses those experiences to mold… shape and refine us into the person He wants us to become… to be used for His purposes.

    24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.

    26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

    28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.
    ~ Romans 8:24-28

    May God Bless you abundantly as you bless others!
    Love ya!!

        ALL by God’s grace… without Him I would be a bitter, angry person! He gets all the glory. Thanks for the kind words. 🙂
