#Bare

My #bare face is big for all to see. 

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/

Be Bare.

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. Love- d

Remember

Long but strong. How much more now in Christ? Remember Christ.
Obedience is not works – its His deeds coming forth.

All we have is given by the LORD – the I AM – whether little or plenty. Your little might be someone else’s plenty. What you may feel is not near enough may represent riches to someone else.

Love the simplicity. When you eat and are satisfied – not gorged – not stuffed. How about when you have what you need and are happy with what you have.. OR what if it is you who has enough to give to someone else’s satisfaction?

Maybe you are sitting.
Maybe you are standing.
Maybe you are laying down.
Maybe you are passing through.

Remember the One Who lives inside you and remember the One Who lives inside of the one next to you. Remember those things you said you would do – remember the commitments you made and maybe have forgotten or let it slip away because of your flourishing or your poverty. God speaks. HE starts seasons and HE ends seasons. HE is the Beginning and the End and the In Between. Remember.

Obeying God is from His spirit alive in you – Christ in you allows you to move forward in your health, your healing, your mental awareness, your financial increases, increasing the fruit of the spirit, increasing joy inside you while you move forward. It could be you don’t feel you are hearing. This is where God comes in with His Body – He speaks through others too.
HE makes pathway where you can’t see the forest for the trees.
HE speaks to others when you are down on your knees.
HE is LORD of all and not just of you.
So, if HE will speak to a donkey, He will get His plan through –
even if through someone other than you. Remember.

There is a cooperation that comes when you remember Christ. HE gives you power to sit, power to stand, power to lay down and power to pass through. Satisfied.

Don’t forget Christ in you when you eat.
Don’t forget Christ in you when you are satisfied.
Don’t forget Christ in you when you build your house.
Don’t forget Christ in you when you settle in.
Don’t forget Christ in you when your business flourishes.
Don’t forget Christ in you when your stocks increase.
Don’t forget Christ in you when your money comes in.
Don’t forget Christ in you when more money comes in.
Don’t forget Christ in you when your standard of living goes up.
Don’t forget Christ in you when your standard of living keeps going up.

Remember Christ so you don’t become full of yourself.
Remember Christ so you don’t become full of all your things.
Remember Christ Who delivered you from slavery to self.
Remember Christ Who led you through your trials.
Remember Christ Who led you through that sickness.
Remember Christ Who led you through that financial upset.
Remember Christ Who led you through that crisis.
Remember Christ Who led you through that breakup.
Remember Christ Who led you through that betrayal.
Remember Christ Who led you through homelessness.
Remember Christ Who led you through that divorce.
Remember Christ Who led you through that death.
Remember Christ Who led you through that fear.
Remember Christ Who led you through that torment.

Remember Christ Who led you through that victory.
Remember Christ Who led you through that creativity.
Remember Christ Who led you through that friendship.
Remember…

No More Hijacking

If you stop your process again, you will either abort or miscarry so no more hijacking your own birthing process.

Follow through – take it to the finish line. I know you think you are not going to make it. I feel it deep in my bones. My feelings are right there with you.

Take a deep breath and take each day as it comes but whatever you do – don’t stop your process of carrying your identity full term again. No more hijacking.

It is NOT just a new day – it is your day.
Yes, you have some dreams you have pressed into before but this is different. This isn’t a dream – this is your identity. This is what you are made of and you are in the process of a brave new you. No more hijacking.

I can see you in the birth canal. You are on the way. Don’t stop! Yes, you may need to take a breath and rest. It is like when you are working out. A good trainer will have you stop and breathe and hydrate but then you get back to those muscles before the muscles do what they want. You have to tell your muscles what to do. You have to tell your body what to do. You must not stop believing that you can finish this process of identity.

You have health on the other side.
You have finances on the other side.
You have promises fulfilled coming.
You can do it. You can deliver.
You are worth the pain. You are worth the effort.
You are worth the continual pushing until you are born.
Remain in labor. Don’t lose your nerve now. No more hijacking.

Don’t run away. Don’t shut down.
Don’t be angry. Don’t avoid it.
Don’t continue to think of ways to get around it.
Don’t give up. Don’t turn back. Don’t give in.
Look at how far you have come. No more hijacking.
You have gone too far to turn back now.
No more hijacking your process of identity.

DO love you enough to hug yourself. Then, hug the one with you.
Your body doesn’t just want to run until you are ragged or sleep until you’re a new person. Your body and my body wants the consistency of the daily living and breathing in and out until our consistency births a stability and reliability and maturity that can be trusted with the life we have asked God for. You have cried out to be a lover of humanity. You have cried out to love like Jesus. You have begged God to make you more like Him. This process of life and living is your birthing time. You just did not realize how critical your own birthing is for you and your family and your city. you are the in the process of birthing your own identity.

Until soon and no more hijacking – love d.

Rise in your space

Rise in your space. Don’t shrink back but embrace the challenge.

Resting expecting supernatural tenacity. Fix your eyes. Stay in the current. Let it strengthen you. You’ll end up with inheritance.

Rise in your space. Be expectant. Turn to think good things not past things. Maybe even approach your issue differently. Expect change. Expect freedom. Expect help. Expect life. Watch a video on Rise by clicking here.

Rise in your space and tune in supernaturally. Listen to what’s inside the song, conversation, disagreements. Listen beyond the tears and pain. Access what’s in between the lines and get a full picture. God is not shaming you or beating you up.

Rise with tenacity into Truth. Not the good labels or negative finger pointing of man can define you. Opinion hasn’t a chance when compared to Truth. Tenaciously embrace a TRUE new you. LOOK into the ones near you and you’ll find they struggle the same. Love issues. Misunderstood. Not able to express themselves. Need validation. Feel like not fitting in.

Look into your eyes and see love there. That’s who you really are so sit up tall in your chair. Follow me for blogging and strength. Love- d

Prayerful thoughts

What if our thoughts are prayers?

What if it matters what we think to The One Who answers prayer?

What if renewing our mind works hand in hand, complimenting our prayer life?

“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” ~ 1st Thes 5:16-18 love-d #prayer

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!

More than a Word

Faith.

It’s more than a word.

Trust.

It’s more than an action.

You don’t know until it’s you…

Facing your body’s need for..

A kidney, liver, brain stem.

You don’t know til it’s you faced with

cancer, ataxia, tumor, Parkinsons.

You don’t know til you’re the one whose spouse, child, sibling or parent died –

In your arms, on your watch, in your home, in your classroom, on your property.

Yes, you may understand. You may feel you believe.

But understanding and knowing are not the same.

The other day I understood from an X-ray that I had a calcified bone spur that needed attention. Then, I was treated for it and know by experience (through the most excruciating pain I’ve ever felt in my life) that I had a calcified bone that needed attention. After weeping, crying, yelling, weeping again…I KNOW it’s an issue.

I’ve prayed, commanded, imagined, meditated, and levitated (not really) in faith, trust and authority. Not restored.

So, I took action steps to address it. Wow. I did not know I could withstand that kind of pain. Had no idea I could or would endure.

I left thanking God for a pain filled arm as I thought of a precious woman who literally has one arm due to a flesh eating bacteria that attached her other one. You just don’t know til you know…

You and I may understand with the head but are out hearts far away?

I’m learning to pause before I presume to truly know what pain, heart ache, confusion, loneliness, insecurity, or feelings of shut down another has. I’m learning to look around and find someone else who wants to be noticed, understood, listened to, acknowledged, remembered…LOVED…

I encourage you to receive fresh compassion for the hurting which might even include your pain.

Not empathy. Not sympathy. These are weak fleshly tools.

Compassion is powerful. It is a strong supernatural super power!!

Compassion is Love & kindness.

Time is priceless.

Your presence is valid. You’re important. You’re significant. You matter.

I encourage you to pause and look yourself in the eye. Then look that other person in the eye. You may feel pain you cannot resolve. You may see wisdom from suffering. You may even see God looking back at you. What will you say in response?

I encourage you not to presume that the person who no longer comes around to see you is lazy or busy. Maybe they too are passing through unspoken issues, pain.

At the end of the day, most are doing the best we can.

So, instead of deciding to discount that person whom you think should get it together …

or … condemn that person you think should know better …

or … talk down to that person whose worth is in the toilet without your reminder …

Or … forget the compassion you want if you ever have to walk in their shoes …

Or feel you have zero worth because you’re alone… so you make certain you’re not…

Remember, that hate – that low self esteem – that yucky feeling – you feel is only hurting yourself…your atmosphere.

So, let it go.

One more time.

Again. Learning. Soooooo much to learn about being present. Noticed. Unnoticed. I’ve been crying more. Listening. Realizing. Valued. Weak yet strong. I’m seeing my errors. I’m not feeling condemned but I’m seeing my own issues. Forgive me those who know me personally for not being present when present. Forgive me those who have felt condemned online.

When I was a kid I had a big mouth.

I talked wayyyy too much to cover it up.

I hated myself. I was filled with strife.

It’s took me years to forgive my own hell.

Love was the answer as was His reply.

Receive your inheritance of life.

From your spirit alive in Christ.

Sow into the incorruptible seed of Love ..

From Those within not just above.

More than a word

You are alive

I was born two months early at 5 pounds. I stayed in an incubator for two months waiting the time for me to be strong enough to go home and be with my mom.

I got to be hooked up to all sorts of life support almost 57 years ago. Tubes crawled in and out of lots of areas in my body while my body finished developing at Fort Campbell Kentucky Army Base hospital.

For the first two months of my life outside the womb, the nurses and doctors were my parents. They made all my decisions, cleaned me and fed me and monitored me to make sure I would not die. Back then, your mom wasn’t at the hospital very day to check on you and it was not possible to hold me… Affection was later.

This is what I know: I would not be writing this nor you reading this had someone snipped my neck or decided I was not worthy to live…or been so convinced I was just a ‘fetus’ and separated themselves from me being a human being…

If you are reading this then high chance your neck wasn’t snipped either.

You are alive my friend… a special treasure and you have something to be thankful about…

Share this my friend.

U turn permitted

Guest Blogger @Crystal Griffith w Radiant Joy Consulting says: U-turns Permitted!

Today, over the course of a 16 hour trip I took 5 u-turns. I haven’t taken 5 u-turns in a year, let alone a single day. And yet each one was necessary in the moment.

#1 – needing to get back on the right track

#2 – realizing what I thought was the best path wasn’t

#3 – needing a pitstop to rest a moment

#4 – being on completely the wrong road

#5 – being in the wrong lane due to a road hazard

Each u-turn had a specific purpose and all have life application. Ask yourself, do I need a yoU turn? Which would apply for your need right now #1, 2 ,3 ,4 or 5? Remember, a yoU turn is necessary when you need to adjust your course. It’s a complete 180 from the current trajectory to the best trajectory for your life.

Even with the u-turns today, we encountered new places, tons of wildlife, sunset stars, maine lobster in the middle of elk fest, both the Atlantic and the Pacific river starts, all 4 seasons on one road, a bulging challenge with 3 bulls, eating in a 100 year old jail, new memories with friends. A u-turn does not have to be failure, but an opportunity for new and exciting from a different perspective.

Need help with making that yoU turn? PM Crystal Griffith with Radiant Joy Consulting.

The new route will compute on God’s GPS and guess what, it’s the best route!
