Too much Hope?

When someone offers you what feels like “too much hope” through an unorthodox way whether it be mental, physical or emotional and you say no based on something that happened in the past to you or to someone else…….. I just want to remind you that you might just miss your opportunity to have a positive change to your life.

What if your no to this “weird too much hope” can’t explain or understand it thing is your no to you speaking, talking, hearing or walking?

Let your tomorrow be different than your past.

And if you are afraid to hope too much because of being disappointed in the past …all I can tell you is that I would prefer to step out and be disappointed than stay stuck in hopelessness which says NO to anything positive. What about you?

I know…. this may not make sense to all of you but some of you get it.

Stop being afraid of your own shadow.

Stop being afraid of the impossibilities.

Start saying hello to the possibilities.

Start saying hello to even ONE LITTLE STEP FORWARD!!

Hope again!

I almost refused to share with someone today something that I know has the capability to change her life and the lives of those around her. Almost.

Then, I felt that nudge inside….. “Why are you afraid to bring hope?” We met with a family and literally changed their lives in a positive way. It was NOT false hope. It was not healing either…but it was definitely improvement. Thank You God!

I remember years ago I was in a situation with a church staff/pastor where our belief systems collided. They called to ask me questions about whether I believed that God healed today. I had been hanging out with some of the women in his church and he was “concerned”. As we explored our conversation, it was as if I had a rope around my neck and I would not get out alive. You see, I did not graduate a seminary (or cemetery) is what my pastor 25 years ago said it was called. Anyhow, my point is that I was fairly new in leaning strongly into believing God healed instead of thinking He did not. After a very long conversation, the bottom line was that he had been hurt years ago – his church he felt had been hurt years ago from what he believed to be “false prophetic words” regarding healing and atonement and all that went in between. His point however was that all those comments and prophecies did was give false hope because that person died. They were devastated and he insinuated that his church was devastated and that it created basically a bad name for God and so he did not want me to influence his church with a belief system that included atonement. I was stuck.

How do I honor this pastor and his belief system and honor God and His belief system and help the women continue to move forward into more life in Christ and let them have their OWN belief system? I was not ruled by fear and the ladies did not want to be ruled by fear either. After all, God IS LOVE – He does not “just love”… I had to choose. I was not scared which honestly was miraculous at the time because I had such a strong submission to authority and wanted more than anything to please pastors or anyone in any kind of leadership and authority… But there was a VOICE…….inside me.

THE Voice – THAT Voice INSIDE me.

I KNEW that voice… I did not know all the information that pastor knew and I did not know how to lead a church but I knew inside me that I was safe to believe and Hope in the One Who healed and believe in healing. This was HIS leading from the inside of me.

Was this pastor lead by the same voice? I believe so but we all hear through our own filters. Maybe there were places inside me that were developed differently than the places in His heart inside him. He was mature and I was mature but in different areas. Now, many years later I’m mature in other areas and have changed. I have great respect for his heart for his congregation and his desire to protect them. On the other hand, I realize I must follow that voice…as I learn and grow I would prefer it to be in hearing Him not just hearing information and following doctrines of safety.

I had seen some healed. I had been healed of some conditions supernatural. Years later, I have experienced more of the same – healed and not healed. Yet, is this because our God of Hope is inconsistent? Is this because God is not a Healer? If I’m not healed, is God the bad guy?

These are thoughts that we all have from time to time right? When you are growing in what you know about Creator…you ask questions and when you are growing in Who Creator is or what you think He is…you ask questions and when you actually converse with Him and get to know Him and you feel He is getting to know you…and you think HEY is God a Person Who hears me and knows me and is real and HE KNOWS ME????? WOW. Everything changes. Share with friends.

Love- Donna Reiners

Hurry Up w Crystal Griffith

Hurry Up! With Crystal Griffith and Radiant Joy Consulting

Showing, involving, or requiring haste or urgency…

Heard that a few times before? As if you are purposely going too slow or you feel like you can’t keep up?

If you’re a parent, it probably feels like the only words you ever say! Hurry up, move along, let’s go…

You know the drill.

As a business owner, you feel the hustle constantly. You tend to feel behind a lot. You are trying to keep up with the latest and greatest ways to earn clients.

As a fellow Christ-follower, you may even feel the urgency to heal faster, walk your journey better, be able to share Christ with more people.

The list goes on and on.

What if we stopped?

Stopped all the hurry, the hustle, the competition to be more, do more, and just started to live more.

If we work deliberately to be quiet, listen, and be intentional in our directions, slow our roll to actually enjoy those we are with, be present in our moments.

We would be less anxious, less stressed, more rested, and more in connection with the one who has the absolute best plan for you!

Make a Memory

Wow. We are out to eat and lo and behold I see the longing to make a memory on Eighties Band Night at Mo’s Irish Pub.

As I watch women flood the floor to dance with each other, my heart understands their loneliness AND their desire to simple to have some fun. Sadly, I saw spouses turn their wives down to dance due to what? Lack of security? Embarrassment? Unwillingness to be seen with her or them? An opportunity to make a memory cane and went..

Hey!! Make memories. Don’t be bound by fear of man, need for approval or feeling not good enough.

Enjoy you. If married – enjoy your spouse. Get over it friend! Love the one who leads you to be uncomfortable and free… Dance. Sing. Love. Laugh. Remember to make a memory…

Love-d

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.

Does your day suck?

Does your day suck? Or did you agree to a bunch of lies by trash talking you, others and your circumstances?

Sounds harsh?

But Truth helps and can save your sanity and your life if you are willing to lean into it.

Thinking….

Thinking…

Nope. No more thinking.

Stop. Lean into a new place. A new thought. A kind idea. A reason to live not die.

You’re not trash.

You’re alive.

Live like it…

A different you

Life can be a journey but for most my life it was a destination. It’s only been the past 10 years or so when I decided to explore a new me. The other me was afraid to disappoint anyone but especially those in authority. I felt I had no option than to obey even without relationship. This area ruled my being. Unable to say no was how I handled my inner and outer world. I was indecisive, unstable and unable to be happy with myself. This has changed though it took what seems like a century. I’m not as fearful. I do not feel like I’m a failure. I have not ditched authority – I just now realize I’m in authority too. This means I have input for my own situations. This was critical to step into.

Interestingly today is my 17th wedding anniversary. I’ve had a lot of changes take place over the last almost 20 years. It’s been an adventure!

Be encouraged to continue taking the steps toward knowing yourself. You are worth it and in the process you might find a different you- a Brave new you. You may find yourself learning new skills and becoming a better you. A different path. The same path. A new respect. A change in career. Giving more. Living more. Loving more. Not everyone will like or embrace your change. Not everyone will desire your renovation. You have to decide. Some want to control you – not get to know you. Some see you as a project not a person to relate to. That’s okay. You do you. Embrace the different new you.

Free gift for you

Become a different you!

Process of Progress

Donna Reiners, Lifecoach, Bravetobraver, donnareiners.com, author, Speaker, leadershipI call it the process of progress. Many people wonder if they are taking three steps forward and two steps back. I find perspective is everything. You may feel stuck like a hamster in a wheel of sabotage, sickness or death filled thoughts. When properly identified, you can have most cycles broken and your heart rewired. It can happen in a moment. I have found most the time, you get to renovate your mind one moment at a time. You get to make a lot of new little decisions that take you over time into a brave new you. The beauty of time lapse is the maturity in the processing of progress. I work with people overtime to unlock the why behind the what so they can recognize it when it knocks on their door in a different package. I help them remove what has caused them to remain in torment, turmoil and overwhelming stress and paralysis. It is a deep work. But it is a long lasting work. It takes patience and kindness to walk out life with people. Sometimes, I have a client that wants a quick trip to the store to get an answer. Most times the key to competency, security and loving yourself is to go deep so you can go far. It is not a drive through experience with a 99 cent menu. Many little decisions every day allow you to change the direction of your body, soul and spirit. I cannot overemphasize the power of the process of your progress. Do not forsake the process of progress. When choosing a different future, I want to encourage you not to allow yourself to regret. Regret is a powerful foe. It will bring you back into a hamster wheel. Sometimes, we unlock 50 years of living in a direction that unbeknownst to that person was not healthy. All of a sudden a lifetime passes before their eyes and they realize there is no gaining it back.

Do not focus on what was behind you.

With intention, take a step forward And mature in the process of your progress.

Fake it No More

They say be delivered. They say you’re free. But they don’t see what happens to you at night when you can’t sleep, when you lose your temper, when you feel like you’re losing your mind. True freedom can be had but it is usually done taking one step at a time. Do not forsake the one next best step for your life. Don’t take 100 when you just need to take one.

Mature

What does spiritual maturity (LOVE) look like when mobilized? Is it practiced in real time kindness toward the soul & body- a hug, dinner, a ride, help to finish projects, wisdom, friendship, a listening ear, a time to process thoughts, baby sitters, elder sitters, medicine, prayer, a helping hand, clothes, gas, food, etc?

Been Thinkimg

Been thinking about life.

Maturity takes time.

It does not come overnight.

Process keeps us in tune with our core and Creator.

Jesus knew His call at 12

but others didn’t see til His 30’s.

Process. Life. Living. Mistakes.

Start Overs. Do it again. And so on. Until. Until. We are loving

and being loved until we

can love and be loved.

All about the #Love. You be you.

I am me. Receiving. Giving. Relational. Authentic. Non judgy. Learning. We all live it differently. Condemning someone else’s “what” is not “how” God does it. Live. Love. People are going to have an opinion of you. You can let their fingers of accusation stop you or strengthen you. Let God’s love sustain you. Been thinking.
