Compromise is a powerful and subtle method used to lead us away from Truth within us and around us. Lies will separate you from those who love you, pull you away from what is best for you, divide your heart, tear you apart, stress you out, leave you to rot. It will give you a false identity so real that you won’t see the counterfeit. Be willing to let God sift your thoughts back to Him and His ways. Trust Him with that issue, that relationship, those friends, that career, that food problem, drug addiction, those worries, that codependent friend, deep pain, sadness and loneliness. Let God bring you true identity and specific Truth. Let Him redesign your relationships and awaken your heart to Joy.

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.
We label people as broken. We ignore the older #man or #woman whose face is wrinkled and worn. Yet, they are filled with wisdom if you have ears to hear their heart. We walk over the homeless body tattered on the sidewalk. Yet, they have a story that gives credence to their condition. We condemn the one who can’t remember as if they are the plague. Yet their hurtful #perspective shaped their blocked painfilled memories.
Have mercy. Remember – broken #crayons still #color.
It sometimes takes years in the journey…to live, to learn, to experience life and living.
Some want to usurp the journey and bypass the process. Yet it’s in the process you see the beauty, the raw revelation of relationship in Christ.
Through the pain and broken heartedness I gained vital insight in Christ. Did I enjoy the hurt? Of course not. Yet God lived through it all. God draws and divides truth from lies, good from evil, love from fear. It’s been beautiful and though there may be some things I would do different- I have respect for the process and journey. Christ in me always lived and loved me as I discovered who He was with and in me. Love-d

The struggle with thoughts of #death disguised as #grief is real. Turn your thoughts to life even if it’s one inch at a time… it’s possible for light to turn on in a #dark place. Give yourself permission to live. Love-d

Most women become who they are told to become and then exist. Rarely do they question the status quo that has dictated their lives and so they fall far below any potential that challenges them to reach for the stars. #Fear, #performance, self hatred, failure and poverty become lifelong friends. I know this was me. But no more. I said no more. Be a star. Shine. Bright. LIVE. LIVE. LIVE! Become Who you decide. Share with a friend. It’s not too late to COpartner with #God for the ride of your Lifetime. SDEND TO A FRIEND. Love- Donna Reiners
I’m thinking about you as I drink my first cup of #coffee since arriving yesterday in #amsterdam. It’s my day to rest and since it’s cold and overcast, I’m thinking indoors is a perfect #retreat #morning
Little drops of #water tip toe from the #sky onto the square brick sidewalk outside restaurant window. I see the slight breeze whisper to the brown hedge bruised by the winter, recently passed.
As I glean from the #Proverbs, I’m listening to the #languages spoken around me as different cultures eat their #breakfast. Though we are all in one room, I can taste the distance between us. My #Texas heart wants to play musical chairs and let time stop long enough for me to spend a few minutes with each #woman.
I’m confident #love is the common language between us. I hear silent cries in my mind of the ones who would bloom if someone took the time to be kind. I’m also equally confident if we looked one another in the eyes with no words spoken, it would reveal our need for a #smile and a #hug as a reminder of our #significance. I’m finishing my first cup …headed for my second one.
Much love- Until soon @donnareiners with http://www.bravetobraver.com
