Blessings to you and yours,
Have a beautiful week,
Right. We want to be right.
We fight to be right.
We want a right to our opinion.
But right isn’t always righteous.
The term dogmatic in my line of work means a rigid stubborn opinion. It’s normally rooted in a belief system through trauma along with emotions like anger, fear and pain. These emotions can explode when a person feels powerless to control or change themselves or others. Conversely, emotions can cause someone to shut down when feeling trapped or scared too.
What to remember is that trauma comes with an agenda to protect itself. So, if you encounter yourself or another person blowing up or cussing at you, you will need to love that person. And with great intention, see yourself and them on the same cross with Jesus. Forgiven.
Intention isn’t emotion. It’s purpose. Intention causes you to grab hold of the cross and the power of resurrection for you AND for them.
Love is always part of the equation. The other part of the equation is to remember that it’s not about you. The enemy purposely attempts to turn people against one another. If you pray together, you’ll only stay together by forgiving and forgetting any err. Humility will have to be your mantra if you want to move away from feeling angry or powerless.
Remember that we are in Christ and we get to reinforce His victory.
WALK AGAIN. Be encouraged. Maybe you once lived in low self esteem. Maybe you do now. Maybe you were afraid of your own shadow once too? Maybe you are confused now and don’t know what to do. Be encouraged. There was a time when I thought I would not walk ever again. I thought my life would simply remain in my own self made darkness. But God. God IS for you. Don’t give up on Him or on you. This WILL pass and you WILL WALK AGAIN!!
SIMMER TIME. Are you tired of being on the back of the stove? Have you been waiting for someone else to give you permission to live? It’s time. You’re ready. Take off your own lid. Taste your own soup. Add some salt if you need it. Get off the fearful burner and get moving. Maybe you NEEDED to simmer a while. But now go burn for the world to see His goodness. Simmer time is over and it’s time to eat.
The original Emancipation Proclamation was #good #news then and it’s good news now. And from the foundation of the world, you have been #emancipated. Time for the writers to write. Time for the business owners to do business. Time for the travelers to travel. Time for people who are supposed to care for others…… It’s time for you to care for others. Rise up and be free to be who you are supposed to be on the #planet. Be #love. He emancipated you to love yourself and those around you. When you know it… Then you #live it. 🌎 Let YOUR freedom ring!
And when you know your emancipation, you know your proclamation.
This is the thing. I needed to let the junk go! I thought I knew #forgiveness as an intimate #friend until I saw how unforgiving I had been – toward me. I had forgiven you with seemingly little effort. However, I was guilt ridden from having had trouble forgiving you in the first place! I continued to feel horribly trapped in my own complicated emotions. BUT GOD!! Listen whether you’re at #work, in #business, #womeninbusiness, a #businessowner, #fitness expert, #mom, #dad, #teacher or #gym rat, you can free yourself from the hurt and pain of condemnation. What a #revelation when I realized I was the problem! It was me – not you. So, I let me go from how I wronged you. I needed to love me too. Go ahead. Give yourself some #mercy and #grace. Let your own junk go and let the Joy flow.
Most women become who they are told to become and then exist. Rarely do they question the status quo that has dictated their lives and so they fall far below any potential that challenges them to reach for the stars. #Fear, #performance, self hatred, failure and poverty become lifelong friends. I know this was me. But no more. I said no more. Be a star. Shine. Bright. LIVE. LIVE. LIVE! Become Who you decide. Share with a friend. It’s not too late to COpartner with #God for the ride of your Lifetime. SDEND TO A FRIEND. Love- Donna Reiners
