I’m 58 this year having outlived my mother who died at 57. I have lots of #laugh lines, #cry lines and #joy lines. Sometimes, as our bodies grow older, we face things we never knew we would face. Sometimes other people can help us face those things as we move forward. Have you ever lived misunderstood, disappointed or divided by man’s assumptive opinion? But at the end of the day, it’s face-to-face with you and face to face with me. It’s a new day and in the midst of more tears there is opportunity to trust Them more. #Bare. It literally can be excruciatingly painful and bitter and sweet all at one time to come face-to-face with yourself. In the mirror you see into your eyes lots of mistakes, lots of desires, misunderstandings and also many years that if I concentrated on them I would want a do over in. #Bare. And choosing Joy that allows contentment? Now I believe the me I am today is acceptable and pleasing with or without my paint and I’m learning not to allow the opinion of others to taint how I see myself or how I believe God sees me or intimately knows me. Interesting tip. Others are going to misunderstand you. You are going to make mistakes. You are sometimes going to be flat out wrong. And sometimes you’re going to be correct. But is it really about right and wrong? Reconciliation is always the heart of #Christ. When you remain divided, it is not his idea. The cross was enough. The blood was enough. #Resurrection is enough. Forgiving and being forgiven should be our immediate go to – not a have to – but an immediate ..”I’m forgiven and you are #forgiven.” Righteousness, peace and power in the Holy Spirit is who lives inside of me. I am his house. I am God’s House and you are too. Bare.
I love to write and always knew I had books inside me from since I was a little girl. If you have a book in you and want to be published all over the world – feel free to be attend this free training (it is how I got involved myself). https://vt226.isrefer.com/go/aaevtrng/donnareinersignited/
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.
This is the thing. I needed to let the junk go! I thought I knew #forgiveness as an intimate #friend until I saw how unforgiving I had been – toward me. I had forgiven you with seemingly little effort. However, I was guilt ridden from having had trouble forgiving you in the first place! I continued to feel horribly trapped in my own complicated emotions. BUT GOD!! Listen whether you’re at #work, in #business, #womeninbusiness, a #businessowner, #fitness expert, #mom, #dad, #teacher or #gym rat, you can free yourself from the hurt and pain of condemnation. What a #revelation when I realized I was the problem! It was me – not you. So, I let me go from how I wronged you. I needed to love me too. Go ahead. Give yourself some #mercy and #grace. Let your own junk go and let the Joy flow.
It is the day to cut away what keeps you from being the very best you that you can be. Complaining is the strongest avenue of derailing you. This is the year to cut away complaints. Join me in cutting away complaining about you and others. Check out this video for details On how to reform you.
Fearless Friday- what has been placed inside you? Honor? Healing? Abilities? Character? Kindness? Forgiveness? Love? Let yourself be kept by God. #BEBRAVER and Guard yourself. Stay in agreement with His Spirit instead of your mindset. Love-d
Winning Wednesday- it could be someone has wronged you and you are upset deep inside where no one can see it. Maybe it’s so deep you can’t see it. Maybe it’s you who have wronged another. Friend, remember that you have both been forgiven. #BEBRAVER and Agree with His mercy that triumphed over His judgement – and yours. Love-d
Super Saturday-How is your mouth with those you hold dear? If tomorrow does not come with you and that person – how will you handle it? Will you be guilt ridden? Will you be filled with regret? Pain? Condemnation? If that is the case then you are a candidate for a new heart toward not just them but yourself and with God. Don’t go to sleep tonight without righting what has been wronged. Don’t allow yourself to have a divided heart toward yourself or others. EVEN if none of it is your fault.
Motivated Monday -What happens when life happens and when it is all said and done, you realize looking back that you had a choice? What do YOU do when you realize you could have had control over your circumstance? You were wronged. Do you allow hatred for what occurred to consume your mind? You made the wrong choice. Do you allow what will never be to make you pessimistic? Choices. We live by them and we die by them. You know what? Sometimes we have happy times and all is well, and we are on cloud nine. Other times we may have deep sorrow and unexplainable hardship. Perhaps we lose a loved one to cancer or pre-mature death? Perhaps a child dies, and it is so painful and confusing and we wonder how something of that nature could happen. Perhaps we stopped feeling anything so long ago that we don’t know how to feel at all. Let me just tell you that if you built up walls of defense, they will keep you from being loved and from being in pain. The twist is that whatever pain you have already experienced will also be trapped within those same walls …that pain will have no way to get out if it is never addressed. We cannot go back. That is so true. But, we can forgive ourselves for the past which has determined our today. We can let go of what has held us in a stand still place in order to allow ourselves to move forward. It is time to never go back…no not ever.
Fearless. Forgiveness. Forever. There’s something to be said about a God Who forgives all your trespasses. Seriously. That’s LOVE. Why don’t you forgive you? Then, how about forgiving others? HE did…So, don’t let darkness keep you – it just creates sickness within you. You can’t live your real life with unforgiving ideas cooped up inside you – it affects your business, health, social life and more. Moving forward requires greater courage. Let it go. Love, d
