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,

Upward Call

Tenacious Tuesday – Upward Call – we each have one…not striving to do something but a decision to be in relationship with Someone. You can go to church and not be in relationship with Jesus. Religion is not the same as relationship. 

Listen – you can identify yourself as a Hindu, Buddhist, Mormon, Muslim, Jehovah’s Witness or even a Christian. You can go to the temple, personal floor mat, fellowship hall or church. You can engage in religious activities that you are comfortable doing. But if your religious actions define you then more than likely you are a very lonely person. 

But when you see Jesus is the Way to the Father…and that Jesus is the Truth sent by the Father and that Jesus is the Life sent by the Father …then you have discovered the more excellent way. You have made contact with The One Who chose you- not just some religious work. You have stepped into Who gave you relationship with the Father.

Born again. Born from heaven. It’s not religion. It’s your destiny. Supernatural access. Guilt free. Wisdom. Purpose. Life.

Until soon, d 

 

Peace Is Yours

Super Saturday-Let the God of peace be your Peace. I kid you not – He is real and He really is The One Who created the Universe. Begin your own transition from seeking for hope in religion to seeking the face of a real Person – the Father of the planet. Don’t let any religion hold you captive when there is a God Who wants to hold your heart and be your Hope.
You will not be left alone. Spirit comes to guide you into the Father. What a journey! Love-@donnareiners  

 

All In

Motivated Monday- tonight I have to do something really hard. At least it is for me. I’ve been dreading it. I’m not filled with dread – I’ve just not looked forward to this day. Every day I came up with another reason to avoid it. But I realize my hesitancy is based on fear not trust and so I am changing my mind even as I write this article. I’m being vague on purpose but the reason I’ve avoided it is because the results of it may be unpleasant…not my fave…but still fear based. I’ve had to face myself. I’m either all in or not all in. In other words, I’m either trusting God with my life or I’m not… So I begin…because …I’m all in.

You might enjoy this video where I needed to get a change of mind pretty quick or the life would have been sucked out of me and my day for sure…again I needed to be all in… Click on I HATE THIS STORE!!

Well, I NEVER

Fearless Friday – Seriously. Really. Well, I’ve heard this phrase from anywhere when someone hears that someone gave their kid some strong medicine. Was thinking about how…I NEVER turns into whatEVER I need to do….

if that medicine will help your child or adult walk? Talk? Live longer?? Give them back clarity of mind?

If that medicine will help YOU get out of that wheelchair…go to the bathroom on your own..

It is AMAZING what we WILL do…….in order to give dignity back…and to give life back.

Just want to encourage you to remember that sometimes….it is FEARLESS to take medicine..and the strongest step of faith you can take…….don’t condemn just because they chose a different road than you chose….who knows what you and they might meet in the middle sometime on the same brave road??

Blessings,
