Braver Saturday- Praying with you today: Father, thank You for Your faithfulness. Thank You that You are kind, loving, compassionate, merciful, patient, active, rich in wisdom and favor. Thank You that Your life and Your perspective is always better than what we think is best. Thank You that we can see life from heavens vantage point. Jesus, we give ourselves over to You fresh and new – daily – I acknowledge You with a confident trust that You direct my path, thoughts and decisions. With expectancy, I lean into the covenant You have with the Father that heals, inspires, restores, renews and refreshes me and those I live out life with in this adventure. Holy Spirit, I resist the thoughts and ideas that lead me from You and I lean into You. Thank You for drawing near to me as I draw near to You and thank You for causing me to walk with You instead of being lead astray. I belong to You and You belong to me. Jesus, You are not a fable, not a myth, not a crutch and not a facade – You are the Living One Who has awakened us all. Thank You that Your kingdom has come and Your will can be done right here and right now as You have already determined in heaven. Thank You for allowing us to hear from heaven. Thank You for dual citizenship – heaven and earth.I give myself to Your will. I give myself to Your breath. I give myself to Your ways. I respond to Your reach and I wrap myself around You and Your Life giving ways and I choose You as my Partner in Life, living and beyond. Let us see the Father and let us run this race with fervor and fascination in Jesus name. Let it be. Love-d
Braver Saturday – Do less with more focus. Do what you must while on the way to where He is taking you. Sometimes you spend a long season cleaning up the messes from past decisions. That’s okay. It’s part of the journey, Jesus is with you. That’s the whole Purpose – that He is with us…as you faithfully take care of issues that just cannot be ignored anymore – those things that niggle at your mind like a simmering pot on the stove – whether legal, mental, emotional, spiritual, physical or financial …over time…as you handle X y z you eventually get to that place of strength and humble beginnings…where you can focus on less and accomplish more. Do less with more. So, don’t be afraid to finish what you started. Look, there really are seasons where you can’t walk away from your past because it’s facing you each morning to remind you to follow up and follow through on what was begun…keep chipping away and trust Him each step of the way. Stay filled up with His presence and His courage as He walks with you….and He will direct you – focusing one day at a time ..it WILL GET YOU THROUGH the darkness and you WILL SEE less problems and more solutions. Don’t give up!! Don’t turn back!!! It’s gonna be okay. Eventually, you will move out of what you do and it will move you from all you know into who you have become and that’s when you see it….those obstacles and those fearful decisions were all part of shaping and molding you into the courageous person you have become… Do less with more focus and over the process of time, you leave what you know to step into who you have become. #blogger #faith #church #kingdom #anxiety #anxietyquotes #mentalhealth #fitnesss #gym #life #bebraver
Sometimes you have to change with the season and sometimes those changes don’t make sense. To you. To them. Yet inside you know -that you know – that you have to obey The One Who is closer than the air you breathe. You know it’s time to turn the page. Obedience is not always logical. Obedience is not always pleasant. Yet in obedience, you find His pleasure, His purpose, His peace. This is kingdom. #bebraver Turn the page. Obey is not a cuss word. Love-d
Tenacious Tuesday – one of my deepest pursuits has not been happiness. Instead it has been trust. My whole life. It’s been trusting not just God but me. Once I committed myself into His care, I found Him faithful and trustworthy. However, it’s not tested until you trust Him to live through you. Making the transition from the God in the Bible to Christ in me actually being the hope of glory??? Now THATS been difficult….hence the new direction I’m soon to take as I move into the real me – the brave new me…if you decide to come along then…
We will discover Him inside of us – his bravery – and we will learn how to lean into Holy Spirit in a more consistent manner. I hope you will join me and as I move forward…I invite you to step forward with me. Did you know that the word hope means expectancy and boldness and confidence? Christ in you! So, let me introduce you to The Brave New You.
You are bolder than you know. You can just read with me here or you are welcomed to read anytime through this kindle purchase – The BRAVE New You Devotional (Braver) by Donna Reiners http://www.amazon.com/dp/B016TXN3O6/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_udp_awd_IRqNwb6ABE2VE
Until soon, love d
Motivated Monday-When the dark works to overcome your attitude, plans, friendships, business or time with Him – just remember that the God Who created EVERYTHING – lives INSIDE OF YOU. SERIOUSLY. You really gonna let those voices bombarding your head become stronger than the LIGHT WHO LIVES INSIDE YOU??
Super Saturday / Embrace today. Don’t give up. Live it. Don’t give in to those voices of the dark. Breathe it. You have purpose in your day. Love it. This moment is your time to shine. Love Him. Love yourself. Explore you. Explore Him. Explore one another. Discover joy in fullness. It was made way through the cross and now we have access to Him our Joy and Peace. Love-d
Fearless Frday -EDIT AS YOU GO -Moving forward is sometimes awkward. You have a thousand ideas. You don’t know which one is for now and which one is for later. You think you may need help. You have a plan. The problem is that you have several plans. You have written them multiple times. You’re not confused. You just don’t know what to do first. Whoa. You need clarity. You need flesh on those bones. You need to talk it out with a friend. You can see it. You can taste it. You are confident. You are bold. You are cognizant that He is for you…cognizant He has given you a green light. So, what now? I guess you put one foot in front of the other and just edit as you go…love-d
