WALK AGAIN

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

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.

Emancipation

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.

Become Who You Decide

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

There was a time…

IF you can relate – type I GET IT! There was a time many years ago when I would not sleep for #fear I would wake up dead.

There was a time many years ago when I blamed #sickness on disease. There was a time many years ago when I refused relationships for fear they would die and leave me alone.

There was a time many years ago when I agreed with doctors who said I would not live past 30.

There was a time many years ago when I agreed I would die like my mom.

There was a time many years ago when I felt you would not love me if you really got to ‘see’ me.

There was a time when I thought I would disappear into depression.

There was a time when I gave up and wanted to die.

There was a time…

There was a time…

There was a time…

But God.

I said, “But God.”

Yes, it sometimes required a #fight.

Yes, it sometimes required my will overriding overwhelming #emotions filled with #darkness and #despair.

Yes, it required me contending for life I could not yet see.

But God.

I said, “But God.”

So, my #friend if you have read until the end, I want you to know that overcoming that which wants to overcome you is worth it.

Knowing That One Who overcame the world and lives inside of you and lives inside of me is worth it.

And I’d do it again.

You – don’t you give up and don’t you turn back and don’t you give in to those #death filled thoughts and ideas. Choose life because Life chose you and you were and are worth choosing. But #God. I GET IT!! Share so that someone struggling about ‘there was a time’ will choose life. #REPOST Love-d

Distraction, Detour & Destruction

Motivated Monday – I was quarantined with a mysterious fever and deep cough. My husband took me to Urgent Care where it was clear I was not in my right mind. Delirious it seemed. Quickly, the medical staff assessed my situation and gave me a breathing treatment. A long one. At first, I thought what is the purpose of this? I can breathe fine. Then, it was clear I wasn’t breathing fine. Pure oxygen was needed to bring me back into my right mind. My right mind.

My right mind.

What is that exactly?

What is my right mind?

When I left the Urgent Care facility, I was not feeling better physically, but my thoughts were clearer. My right mind came back through pure oxygen. Then, the oxygen moved through my body supplying much needed nutrients to my cells so that my body could fight the sickness.

And this is my thought process. My right mind is when I am in UNION with CHRIST WHO IS PURE OXYGEN. What is it to breathe pure oxygen? I think it is focusing on only Him Who in turn leads me into His will. Breathing pure oxygen is the only answer. Breathing Him in and breathing only Him out so that HE is all that is within me. I find this union when I lay aside all that lays on me to distract, to detour, to destroy me. The problem is that the clothes of distraction fit so well and the road to detour looks so fetching and the idea of destruction seems like such a term of grandeur for the likes of me.

So, there I was under a heavy blanket of yuck searching Him out for answers and solutions as to why I got sick and how to avoid it in the future.

But, HE brought it all back to HIMSELF and pure oxygen. And then, I brought it back to where I have allowed mixture to muddle up the purity of His oxygen and His calling in me.

What if the calling is so clear, so concise, so obvious and so narrow that you just cannot see it? Those were my thoughts as I peeled off another layer of distraction, detour and destruction.

Until soon,

Scars run deep

Braver Saturday -Time may heal but scars run deep. I know a family. The woman told God that their relationship was going on the back burner. That she would pick up her relationship with Him later. The results? Marriage ripped apart. Families and friends ripped apart. Divorce. Is it all fine now? Sure. Time may heal but scars run deep. Sometimes wrecking your own and other people’s lives is avoidable. If we just listen and obey. Be righteous even when it hurts. Even when you are so deep into it that you feel there is no way out. Cry out to Father. He has the solutions. HE has not left you. If you are in rebellion and you still hear His voice then I encourage you to not take advantage of the grace but tune into His righteousness and let him lead you. Who knows? Maybe He has a different or better plan? A byproduct of relationship with Father is you want to please Him. In this place called Grace, is there still obedience? Did Jesus obey so that we did not have to??? Is that really the grace Father has for His children? To do the wrong thing on purpose is still called rebellion even in grace. Kinda like a little kid who is asked to make their bed by their parents. Perhaps disobedience is at times just immaturity? Father has no condemnation but He does have correction that brings direction. Thoughts? Love-d #moms #marriage #church #jesus #death #life #professional #fit #blogger #faith #blog #instablog
