The holidays can drain you emotionally with memories of the past. But if those emotions lead you into despair, then it’s time to rethink how you respond. Love yourself and love those around you. Don’t take loneliness, depression or sadness into your future. #Emotional truth for every day #life #Share with a friend. Every Day w Donna Mae.
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
Braver Wednesday-Storms come and go. Ask for eyes to see the colors in your storm. Let the promises He has given you come to remembrance in the storm. Let HOPE arise. God is NOT DEAD!! HE hears. HE sees. HE knows. Hold on my friend. Your business can turn.
Your marriage can turn.
Your work can turn.
Your health can turn.
Your life can turn.
Your love can turn.
Let hope arise.
Turn from the storm and look to the colors in the storm. Then, remember the promise. Love-d
Braver Wednesday –
Today gloom and doom visited me. Distracted, I almost let them in my home. But, I remembered their pungent smell, their destructive presence, and their confused lifestyle. I remembered when they exited my body. I remembered how I told them not to return. So, it’s been a while old friends…I recognize your voices and continue to say no. One day you will show up and find nobody here that you know. #bebraver Say no to your enemy til you yourself get the picture. Love, d
Fearless Friday- Why don’t you be the light in someone else’s darkness? As believers we justify walking out life alone because Jesus had friends unwilling or unable to stick with Him. We spiritualize loneliness saying our ‘need’ or someone else’s need should only be for Him. Perhaps we should heed His admonition to His disciples to remain awake? Perhaps this is an example of how we can be friends with others. Once someone begged me to be their friend. The intense need this woman had was unbearable. Over time I watched her blossom and bloom through our friendship. She never became dependent on me for her source of happiness. She just needed some light in her darkness so she could find her way out.
In the family of Christ we should be healthy & mature enough to be friends with others. We should not have to beg for relationship with one another. Is it possible we should see the need of isolation as significant as shelter, food, or water? A possible breeding ground for suicide, sickness & bitterness may be lack of relationship. So, why don’t you light up someone else’s darkness? You might gain a lifelong friend. 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??
Fearless Friday- it’s here. Once a year this day comes. Sometimes it’s filled with fresh bread, potatoes, stuffing and turkey. Other times it just may be a sandwich or a cup of coffee.
You may be surrounded by many.
Or sitting alone.
Either way – you have you with you.
Sometimes it may not feel like enough. You may need comfort. Strength. Kindness with skin on…but it may not be near. Or nobody knows how you feel. So you are disappointed. It’s important that you grab hold of you. You are important.
I’ve learned that you may think that person over there is happy and you may think they have it all together…but truth is that nobody does.
Regardless of appearance.
I write this today because you may be struggling. You are not alone. You may be tired. You are not alone. You may be anxious. You are not alone. Life doesn’t seem fair. You are not alone.
You are necessary. Significant. Important. Special. Persevering. Strong. Well able.
You are not alone.
I say Merry Christmas from the depths of my heart. I’ve spent Christmas Day alone. I have been the one in need on a day when everyone else seemed happy, content or fulfilled. I was not alone. I had me. And you do too.
Go look yourself in the mirror. Tell yourself a few things will you?? Read from my picture note below.
Forward to a friend.
Follow me – Love, d
