Tenacious Tuesday – Had a picture of someone fighting against someone who was holding their head under water. It’s like I saw the person drowning let go and sink as if they were dead. Wisdom. Strategy. They went under out from the grasp of the enemy drowning them. Supernatural understanding on the unseen weapons!! They began to swim and then they began worship and they found themselves able to breathe under water. Whoa!!!! They found what they were made for through worship and the King gave them breath as they learned how to swim underwater.
Risk. Step out. Step in. Swim. Find what you are made for in business and life and you will flourish and breathe and live in spite of the circumstances. Love, Donna
Tenacious Tuesday. No more hesitation. What if it’s NOT a dead end? Seriously!!! It is time to move…out…there….into the unknown area of obedience…that you will have no regrets. This means, you leave the shore. You leave the boat. You leave the city. You leave your house. You get out of bed. You cook a new meal. You buy a new salad dressing. You call a new friend. You like you. No time to start like today my friend. It is a new day Houston……..and every other area of the world. Step into it. Before you Jump in the water check out this short video. Click on me for NO MORE DEADENDS!
Shift your gear and gaze.The new day break brings a necessary shift in priorities. Some things will move to the back and other matters will move to the front. Neglecting the health in your house must stop. Return to freshly dividing the Words from Him…knowing deep within what’s next..,shifting your gears and your gaze to bring order into order. Love-d
Start again. Weigh in? 150. This cannot be. I’m on a mission now. For sure. Again. Again. And again. I end up at again more times than I can count. Yet. I can. Without condemnation. Without performance. I can try again. I can do it again. I can succeed again. I can fail again. I can win and I can lose. Neither outcome decides my fate or is my identity. I am who I am and I AM is inside me. So. Again. Here I come. Get back with your bike, your treadmill, your weight program. Go back to that project, that unfinished book, that car that needs cleaning. Just start again. It’s okay. I’ll see you / out there – in the kingdom where mercies that are new for us both.
The strength with you is enough to finish what you started. So get moving. Again. Put the new shoes on. Again. Do it. Again. Rule yourself. Again. Govern your atmosphere. Again. Overcome. Again. Let diligence and dedication be your strategy. One day it will all make sense. Until then – do it again.
Step in the water. Quit looking at the water. Quit testing the temperature. Quit watching for someone to go with you. STEP INTO THE WATER. Don’t look back. Bring your own peace. Govern. Rule. Be the solution. If you wait for someone else to bring the peace you need then you may wait a lifetime. Stop waiting. Start moving. Trust yourself to trust again. Trust God. Not man. Scale the city. Be the answer!! You got this!
New book not just new chapter. Listen maybe it’s time to shut the book you are living from and start a new one. Why rehash chapter after chapter while getting the same ending every time? You have the wherewithal and power to listen to The Voice of The Greatest Teacher Who will ever live and walk into your LOVE given destiny. Don’t wait another second. Pause. Recalibrate. Let go of the past, the future and what you thought and grab hold of the thought from heaven for you and those in your influence. Don’t think for one moment that you walk alone. Don’t think for one moment that you have no impact on society. You ARE IMPACT. #bebraver Take action. Get strategy and get going. Don’t worry about where you will end up – just think about moving in sync with LOVE Who thinks about you day and night – night and day – and Whose plan is Mission Possible. See you on the other side of the past and see you in the new book signed by LOVE. I love you @donnareiners #bravetobraver

FEARLESS FRIDAY PRESENTS Real life in construction. In process. Progressing. Inspections along the way to insure safety, foundation and structural soundness, interior electrical workings, exterior cosmetics. Building a house not that different than our physical lives. We need accountability with measured results. Regularly. So, my question is, “How is your life working out for you?” WHAT CAN YOU DO TO INSURE FORWARD MOVEMENT? Sometimes all we need are a few minor tweaks. Jot down a couple notes to yourself. Dream. Let’s GO FOR IT! I love you!! Donna Reiners
Have you ever thought about the life of Judas? I’m referring to the Judas who threw Jesus under a bus. Anyhow, I’m thinking about how Judas ate with Him, spent time with Him, had his feet washed by Him, took communion with Him – lived out life with Him and STILL betrayed Him. How did this happen? And how did Jesus do what seems impossible – in the midst of betrayal – He loved Judas & forgave Judas. Did Jesus know what was inside of his disciple turned rogue?? I think He did – I really do. However, in the midst of a storm of betrayal, Jesus moved into His destiny. He was not stopped by the storm.
Are you in a storm of sabotage, betrayal or the like? Have you been attempting to finish projects that have been weighing you down, just to find everywhere you turn you get stopped in your tracks? Perhaps you are in the process of taking back your life
In the midst of life happening around you – do you have a vision for you? Do you know what God wants with you? Or are you simply living day by day by day in survival mode? IF you are in survival mode, do you have a plan to implement so that you can move from survival to thriving? Have you been in self sabotage mode? Or is someone else throwing you under a bus? Maybe you have embraced the thoughts of the enemy by accident. I have had to stop periodically and look objectively into my own private world and make a new decision. Click and read here about something specific I took action on in my private world. Maybe it will help if you have you been stopped by the storm.
Judas. He erred so deeply he could not find a change of mind. He found no relief. He found no peace. He found no remorse. He found no sorrow. He only found his own heart taken captive by the enemy. When it was all said and done – Judas’ thoughts had been so clouded by darkness that he found the only solution to his problem was to hang himself. I do NOT think this was the right move. What about you? Where are your thoughts today? Are they consumed with you? With friends? Sabotage? betrayal? With problems? With crisis? With survival? Somewhere along the way we must get with the man in the mirror and get with God and hear His heart for us. Jesus gave us life on the cross. Judas gave himself over to death and hung himself. He was stopped by the storm.
Listen, life is precious – its not what we do or where we go or the activities we find ourselves in that determine our worth – our worth is found only in Him. His Words to us. His thoughts for us. His ideas inside us. His vision for our lives. God talks about how we can be destroyed without vision. Why? Because with vision comes success! Even Jesus had vision for Jesus! Through that vision, Jesus had vision for the disciples who became His friends. Interestingly, one of them was lured and enticed by temptation and turned from his relationship with Jesus and gave himself to darkness. Look, Jesus had vision while on the planet and called those living out life with Him to fulfill it – to walk out His vision with Him, for Him and ON HIS BEHALF. VISION. HE had it. They caught it. What about you? Click and watch this video to be encouraged – Famous Last Words.
From Disciple to Apostle
Then, there was Peter who denied Jesus and could have been caught up with the voices in his head as much as Judas but somewhere along the way, Peter was BRAVE and was BOLD as he said NO to the enemy of his soul. #bravetobraver Somewhere along the way, Peter HAD to be RESPECTFUL to himself and take ACTION and receive forgiveness from his community AND from himself. What about you? How is it that Peter moved into his calling? Peter did not start out as an apostle. HE had to make choices and one of them was to be VICTORIOUS over his past. At first he was a fisherman – who followed a Man Who turned him into a fisher of men. There were some bumps in the road along the way but Peter decided to receive the mantle of Apostle. It was God’s plan for him – an imperfect man – who was given the task to help build the church. Jesus even told Peter that after he was converted and truly became His that he was to strengthen his brothers and sisters – in other words – take a position of ENCOURAGING others to trust Him! Peter bravely moved step by step into his calling, his mantle, his new nature, his new self. He was not stopped by the storm.
Get A Vision For You
I want to encourage you today to get with you and get with God- our Father and get a vision for YOU! Let God convict you! Let God change you! Let God support you and lead you! Let God LOVE you. I believe when Peter was at rock bottom, he may not have even been able to stand had he not had honor for God. When you cannot believe in you – believe in the God Who made you and remember HE believes in you! HE loves you! Honor God! Honor is what love looks like!
HE has an assignment for us! HE has an assignment – VISION! HE has a plan! Jesus carried out the vision of the Father up through His very last moment on earth – from forgiving others to assigning a place for His mom to live with a friend – to assuring eternity in paradise to a fellow on a cross – to calling out to the Father and connecting with Him before He took His final breath. Famous last words that live forever and point the way to living with vision and community. What does God have for you? I promise He DOES have something for you. Reconnect with God. Reconnect with you. Reconnect with community. Do not let another day pass you by! Get a vision for your life beyond the four walls of you! I commit to you that even if you have betrayed or denied God – HE has a plan – God is smart and HE always has a plan and you too will not be stopped by the storm.
Do you have a plan for this next part of the year?
I’m thinking about you and thinking about our need to decide what direction to go into…for this latter half of the year. That’s right! It’s time to think ahead! We need to be taking care of business! So, decide what is your business and what is NOT your business! Make a list. Check it twice! Make a decision on what you want the latter half to look like and then LET’S TAKE ACTION TOGETHER!!
BE ENCOURAGED WITH THIS VIDEO
Do you have any unfinished projects you need to complete? Start now instead of the end of the year when you no longer have time to do anything about it! There are about two weeks left in June. What can you get done this month? Let me tell you my own personal plan – maybe it will encourage you.
We are moving and though my attic has been completely cleaned out – now I have my garage and rest of my house to finish! What’s my plan?
Every day I’m packing a box or more.
First, I’m going through my house and removing all the pictures and decorations off the wall and putting them in boxes which I will mark for the room it is intended for in the new house.
Second, I’m hitting one closet at a time and boxing, throwing and stowing!
Third, I’m then headed into all our dressers and getting rid of what we no longer use.
Fourth, I’m going after the kitchen where I’ll be giving those pans away I never use (a family member already has dibs on them) and then carefully considering what to do away with since our next house has far less kitchen space.
So, what is your plan? Write it down and send it back to me! I’d love to hear and maybe we can keep each other accountable!!
Blessings, Until next time – d
