The Process

Change is a process. We want a silver bullet but it is all about the process. It’s called renewing the mind. It’s not a one time event. You don’t expose lies and vows and change into a different person like magic. You take bite after bite into the lies of who you have thought yourself to be and you let yourself make new decisions as you unfold who God says you have already BECOME. Be patient with you as you let yourself become the brand new you. Be kind to those around you in their process too.

You get to look change in the eye with courage and confidence and kindness and eventually realize your worldview has changed. You have gone through the process of thinking differently – toward yourself and those surrounding you – one decision at a time. Love-d

Invitation into Silence 1

Invitation into Silence

When I woke up this morning I had a most definite feeling of alone-ness. Almost empty really. It was almost overwhelming as I pondered my day…alone was in front of me and to be honest I normally do not mind…the alone part. However, for some reason I sidestepped the invitation into silence.

I stopped to listen and got no inspiration or understanding. Instead, I slipped into memories of my younger years when my responsibilities were deciding what movie I wanted to go see or what outfit I would wear or who I was going to meet or what I would do with the leftover in my check after I paid my car note which at the time was about a hundred dollars. Those were the days!

We have a LACK of Silence

Silence is an interesting word and an interesting condition of the heart. Some would even venture to say that silence is boring and to be honest, I believe that is the worn out norm for many generations. Think of the lack of silence that penetrates our days. Elevators have music to captivate your short attention on the way to your floor. Every doctor and dental office has music to drown out the confidential dialogues happening with patients. Frequently, you’ll find music flooding the department stores and grocery stores that keep you happy and energetic. More often than not it is very difficult to locate a restaurant that will allow you to have thoughtful conversation without some sort of musical ambiance to set the stage. None of this yet mentions our ability to keep our ears on overload with music or teaching through our very smart phones which are loaded up with every variety of sound available to man except perhaps – silence.

What’s my challenge today? GET QUIET! Be unafraid of silence. Turn off the radio, CD player and IPOD in your car for a week. Spend a day without tv. Try something new….enjoy YOU….the unfiltered you….the you without props and find out you are AWESOME without all that jazz……..adding noise to your mind and heart.

OKAY. That’s it.

HAVE A FANTABULOUSLY AMAZING DAY!!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE…until next time,

Public Confession of a Private Extrovert

Have you ever heard the public confession of a private extrovert?

Public Confession of a Private Extrovert
Public Confession of a Private Extrovert

Crazy huh? Well, let me tell you my story. So, one year I went back to the gym – as in I got a trainer and everything and this is after being out of the game for YEARS. My first day was of course amazing and it was not until two days later I discovered I could barely walk for the pain in my thighs from the new pressure I had exerted. Needless to say that the pain did not deter me as I was determined to move forward and I was consistent and diligent for 4 months. I was faithful to endure 2 workouts with a trainer per week and I worked out almost daily with just a few exceptions for appointments, exhaustion, family, etc. THEN, I had a moment of WAH!LAH! I made my confession that I could do this and thought I could be private at home and do this gym gig by myself. After all I’m doing GREAT! Surely, I do not have to be public in the gym to get my health back! Right? I was brave and took action. I purchased weights for 50 cents a pound, got one of those big honkin’ inflated work out balls from an expert, found some elastic bands for my arms, purchased a floor mat and even got an inexpensive treadmill. My confession made me go all out! I had been writing down all the exercises and just knew I would be able to be the same person at home that I was at the gym. I was OFF to the races or so I thought… After two months with only one workout to my credit I had a revelation with a new confession. My new confession was that I HATE being alone. Seriously? How can this be? FOR YEARS and I mean years my public confession of me not being an extrovert.  I have exclaimed from the roof tops that I am an introvert! I have told myself and the world just how much I love my solitude and how I can handle just so much of people.  What was wrong with me? Now, let’s fast forward into reality and hear the public confession of a private extrovert

Why was I unsuccessful as an introvert?

So, I was UNSUCCESSFUL at working out alone as an introvert. WHY? Because I need people! Oh my goodness when the lightbulb went on I thought I was losing my mind. I looked back and carefully considered my steps. How can I be an extrovert? I love solitude. I like just being with me-I mean I really do-in all my quirky funky dressing talking humor I genuinely enjoy myself. Also, I’m pretty brave in how I approach life. However, as I bravely reviewed my true reality, I rehearsed in my mind all the times I spend alone. Then, I truly stared into how unfruitful my time was when completely alone at home or in a room locked away or even on a retreat by myself. On the other hand, I looked a how my productivity was when I picked up my computer and found public WiFi at St. Arbucks and remained there for HOURS just writing and talking and using my cell phone and calendaring my day and making appointments and making new friends. Again, now I’m making a public confession and I’m ready to add fuel to the fire for a bit of transparency.

What is the point?

Would you like to know when I get the most done in my own home? It is when someone is on the way over and I scramble to make sure the house is picked up or move quickly to create a fun meal for us. All of a sudden I am completely inspired to clean my office or garage and I find myself getting much done when they are here with me because I love to work with others. I know folks who get a thousand things done all alone so that they can go out and play. However, for me, I get a thousand things done when others come over to play! The point is that all these years I thought I was an introvert because I saw a program talking about textbook introverts and how they process all their information inside themselves and I realized how ME THAT WAS! I truly do take my thoughts on the inside. I consider life and God and I prayerfully and thoughtfully peer into situations and processes. Anyway, for my social well being and for my family’s well being I have come to the radical understanding that if I am not around people I am not a happy camper and if I’m not a happy camper….then no one in my home is happy either and that basically makes me a social extrovert………..with introvert tendencies. Crazy as it might sound…this little inspiration or revelation has helped me tremendously to get organized and to make sure I have more people contact and to recognize that if I’m feeling a bit blue or borderline depressed then more than likely its not because I’m sad or depressed or blue or anything else. Therefore, part of my public confession is that when I’m feeling a little lonely, all I need is a public shot of social interaction and then I’m back to being my same old funky quirky talk your ear off friend whom you can’t live without. LOL

How to be brave in your own story

Be Brave. Be bold regarding who you are today and who you want to be tomorrow. Read here another story about how I had to be brave in my identity. Show respect to yourself and get to know yourself. Take action my friend! You can move into the real you! You are victorious so do not let the voices in your head get you going down a wrong way street! Lastly be encouraged and you can right any mistake you have made regarding how you live life. Be Brave and thought it might take time – you are worth it!You are who you are so why not learn from my error of attempting to become someone I’m not. Just be you. Be you. Be the best you that you can be and learn how to rejoice in how God made you. God’s not mad at you and HE is not mad at me. HE rejoices over how HE made us and we should rejoice over how HE made us too….

Be sure and reply and let me hear from you! Be brave because I want to know if you have a public confession of a private extrovert!

Until next time!

On the road again

cropped-20131011-ndip106041.jpgDo you remember the old Willie Nelson song, “On the Road Again?”

Interestingly, I woke up singing that blasted song the other day? Weird if you ask me but because God is so smart, HE knows how to get my attention AND how to get me on the road again.

When I was Stuck in a parking lot I was fairly miserable, conducting a lot of self examination. Then, when I seemed incapable of leaving and was Still Stuck in a parking lot, I was just on the verge of frustration. Then, I tried to start Leaving the parking lot and then actually left it. What a process it was as I worked through my emotions and inward drama….yes I used drama…it WAS like my own secret soap opera. Anyhow, the problem was I didn’t have a road map and just decided to leave…I realize Abraham got to go ….out there….wherever…and that was cool but I’m in Christ now and honestly, I think HE may want us to at times be a bit more responsible when we get on the road again.

©Willie Nelson

On the road again –
Just can’t wait to get on the road again.
The life I love is making music with my friends

And I can’t wait to get on the road again.
On the road again

Goin’ places that I’ve never been.
Seein’ things that I may never see again

etc….

It does into the whole making music with my gypsies but that’s not my fave. I’m not a wanderer. I wandered before I met Christ. Why on earth would I desire to wander when I have my Anchor. Sure, I can wander with Him but that song is not talking about that and you know as well as I know that over all the gypsies have that whole identity of going from place to place, taking things from time to time, and even living in trash heaps. Is this every single gypsy’s identity? No. But, I’m a daughter…a son…in Christ. Why would I go backwards into a worldly identity that offers dainties that God says are not His best. Sorry, I have no desire to live in a trash heap….at least not on purpose – not metaphorically or in real time. So, instead of traveling ….out there….with zero idea of where I am headed, I have a plan AND am on the road again. 

So, I ask you – do you know where you are going? Be BOLD and quite wavering between righteousness and wickedness.

Have you DTR (defined the relationship) between you and God? Have some RESPECT for yourself and take ACTION to let HIM actually be LORD.

Is He your Friend only or does He sometimes get to lead you and maybe….even I don’t know…pull that whole I Am God card and…tell you what to do…..and give you HIS road map???? Hmmmmm?

I’ve got my map.

I’ve got gas in my car.

I’ve got a plan.

AND

I’m on the road again……..VICTORIOUS IN CHRIST AND ENCOURAGING MYSELF IN HIM……..#bebraver #LITNG

If you read this far you might be interested in a fiction story…kind of like a soap opera really – I released the 3rd part in the Other Side of the Road and am preparing to release FROM the Other Side of the Road – you can follow me there too if you like – its just for fun!! http://donnareinersblogs.wordpress.com/

Send this to friends who need some help out of the parking lot. Who knows? Maybe they need some wisdom as they get on the road again.

Leaving the Parking Lot

20140222-NDIP10093I’m writing this in retrospect because at the time of this writing I have already left the parking lot instead of just now leaving the parking lot. Forgive me as I get you caught up on the entrapment of a parking lot. Interesting truly it is when you discover that not only are you stuck but actually you feel semi trapped in it and you feel as if there is no leaving it. It has been an interesting stretch of the journey. Admittedly, many times I feel like what others think could happen in a split second, I feel could take years. So, does that make me a negative woman or just gifted to see that sometimes the glass really is not as full as you think? I’m not sure but I really felt like it would be centuries or years before I would even understand enough of what was happening in life to gain the courage to begin leaving this seemingly dark place or as I fondly began to say –  leaving the parking lot. Melodramatic to say the least.  The other thing I discovered on this stretch is that I have not been alone in the parking lot. Many of us have been feeling as if we are in a dark place or in an enemy entrapment. After I realized it was not just me but that the burden was for the body then I had a moment of enlightenment….AHAH!!! This is why its been such a heavy place ignited by the work of the enemy as many places as he could find me along the way via fear, dread, terror, paralyzing feelings, etc. I ask you to join me as it is time to look at the future of today and say goodbye to the past. This is my conclusion and many of you have been conversing with me privately as well in open comments but mostly privately and so let me tell you what I’ve concluded. It is time for us ALL to be leaving the parking lot.

Start Your Engine

Just start your engine. START YOUR ENGINES – HENCE THE CHECKERED OUTFIT. I’m your flag for the go go go. Yes, I realize you may not feel like it but the truth is that though God may have lead us into the parking lot – when we know we are there – then we are in a parking lot by choice. Does God take advantage of this time of stopping, resting, sleeping, relaxing, recalibrating? OF course He does – HE is the Smartest One alive. I’m not saying you need to take leave right now but you need to at least start the car. Quit waiting for ideal situations that may never come or passionate people to pull you out of the mire. I’m here – I’m passionate  and I’m ready to pull you out of the mire. When I was considering the exit strategy from the darkness or heaviness, I was exhausted and felt there was no way I could even think about leaving the parking lot.

A Heavy Comfort Zone

By this time, I had become comfortable. This is the trouble with the comfort that had visited with me – it was a heavy comfort disguised as darkness and it had been sent to take me INTO darkness. Question. Do you WANT to lean into darkness and then still be sitting in the same lot a year from now? Think about it. No. I mean really THINK. Do you WANT to be in the exact same place one year from now as you are today? If not, then you need to listen carefully to instructions to help you in the process of leaving the parking lot.

THINK and START YOUR ENGINE.

T – Tell a friend you need to change your private world, public world, situation, circumstance or heart’s condition. If you have no friends you can trust then email me and I’ll be your friend. I care and want you free.

H – Hope for the best and stop dwelling on the emptiness of your glass. Do not be duped by the enemy not even for one more day. I bet once you get hope filled, you will see a plan right before your eyes. So, you might as well start your engine.

I – I I I I I I I – staying in the parking lot is going to cause you to continue to think about yourself and really do you think you will have much hope if you continue to just be into your SELF????? God has gifted you (even if you don’t see it), HE has instructed you (even if you have forgotten what He said) and He has entrusted you to live out your life as to HIM – not you and certainly not to darkness. One thing I know is that though I want to understand every step I take before I take it….truth is that Jesus is my Road Map. HE IS THE MAP. I hold the Map inside me. HE is the key. Quit waiting to understand how you are going to do it….just start moving. Start your engine.

N – NO – you need to tell your old patterns of fear, dread, unbelief, sleepiness, habits that stop you from moving forward and just past behaviors NO – tell them to all shut up and tell them you are starting a new day and the last time you checked God was still into giving new mercies every single day and you are moving into a new merciful day. Today is the day to change your mind and say no to you and yes to HIM and HIS ways and HIS goodness and HIS life. Sever the darkness from you even right now…separate yourself from what you know you must say NO to!! When you say YES to God – you say NO to the enemy’s ways. Say it with me, “I change my mind and come out of this dark heaviness. I sever it from me. I command it to go to a dry place. I ask You God to forgive me for partnering with darkness and I receive Your forgiveness. I forgive myself. I release myself from yesterday and start your engine to prepare to move into tomorrow on purpose in Jesus name.

K – Be KIND to YOU. For goodness sake – ditch the condemnation, criticism, crazy ugly self talk and let God live through you to be KIND to youuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!!! Get some who are like minded and have some good old fashion prayer time with some folks who believe in you and want the same as you. It is time. THINK. THINK. THINK. Start your engine my friend….let’s get a move on.

Awaken Your Spirit

Okay. So this is how I left the parking lot…..I’m encouraging you to do the same. Start your engine. Keep in mind…in the unseen realm….its okay…you won’t run out of gas with your engine running in the spirit. This is what I mean by start your engine – awaken your spirit my friend. You have incredible value….even if you don’t feel it for yourself. I had no idea where I was going or when I would leave – I just knew I could not longer remain in the parking lot anymore. Then, once it was decided, then God did what God does – HE talks to you to help you have the unction to leave the parking lot.

So, I will get a tad spiritual for a moment and pray for you okay?

BE BRAVE

In Jesus name, I declare freedom in you and over you and through you to leave the parking lot. #bravetobraver -You are BRAVE! You are BOLD and you are well able to leave entrapment. You have RESPECT for yourself and you are well able to take ACTION and to leave where you are and move forward into more of Him and more He has for you. You ARE VICTORIOUS over your past and so I sever from you what is not from HIM. I declare you are well able to change your mind and go into a new day. I free you to be convicted and not condemned. I release you into ENCOURAGEMENT, blessings and peace and power and provision and promise in Jesus name. I free you to be LOVED by others and loved by yourself too. LOVE LOVE LOVE.  Blessed be the name of the LORD!! YAY JESUS!!!!!So, get ready for a new day and a new plan….see you outside the parking lot 🙂

If you read this far you might be interested in a fiction story…kind of like a soap opera really – I released the 3rd part in the Other Side of the Road and am preparing to release FROM the Other Side of the Road – you can follow me there too if you like – its just for fun!! http://donnareinersblogs.wordpress.com/

Breathing Down Your Neck

cropped-20131011-ndip106041.jpgHave you ever felt the enemy breathing down your neck?

I must admit that I have not in quite some time. Course that does not mean he is not right there distracting but I think I must have gotten on his very last nerve because today was a whole new ball game – today was an exception. I wish I could say that I had been #bravetobraver or that I had felt the breath of God breathing down my neck or the wind of God but it was none other than the enemy. Again, I ask you – have you felt the enemy breathing down your neck?

My Escape Route

You see, I have been contemplating my escape route as I have been still stuck in a parking lot  for quite some time and then just when I felt like I was receiving a breakthrough – BAM – there is the enemy doing his job again to stop me.  Do you know what transpired to begin such a dilemma? I had decided that I needed to climb the mountain to see the view. Before I got to the mountain, I had been frozen in time and prior to that experience I had been shouting don’t jump ship. And if you want a walk down my memory lane in the near past, I was singing Let It Go Again right when the movie Frozen came out – pretty good timing don’t you think? But, I digress as I’m asking about the enemy and him breathing down your neck.

If you have been following me at all, you know that the season I’ve been in has had me weeping pretty much most the time – the enemy wanted me to think I was losing my mind. Along with loss and death came friendship changes, church changes, and health changes. It has literally seemed like one thing after another and honestly, it has been a challenge. I’m cognizant that I’ve not been alone so none of this is a poor pitiful me story. I’m just keeping it real. So, anyhow, just as I’m making decisions to leave the parking lot, there I felt the hot presence of the enemy as he was breathing down my neck. So, what do you do when you are stuck in a parking lot while the enemy is breathing down your neck?

Get Mad

I tell you what you do – you just get mad. That’s right….mad. Granted, I’m not the mad type. Even when I’m upset….I’m not mad. Sometimes I think that there is something wrong with me. I remember the woman I was 22 years ago when I would cuss you out and shoot the finger at you for just cutting me off on the highway….and then I would run you down to tell you what a crazy person you were for cutting me off!!!  Goodness, now all I do is ask God to bless them…..or maybe it was you? So, now, instead of getting mad – I have decided to get MAD – MOVIN’ AFTER DAD!

So, God is smart and He lives through us to bring us His good pleasure so as the enemy has been making himself known to me, it crossed my mind to consider my ways, the enemy’s ways and God’s ways. I decided that perhaps it would be wisdom for me to have an actual plan as I leave the parking lot – hence why this particular writing is NOT the one about leaving. Wouldn’t you agree that you might need an exit strategy even if the enemy is breathing down your neck?

Get Ready to Leave the Parking Lot

This is what I figured out today. I need a plan. Granted, I have an event coming up and so me leaving right this very moment is not happening. However, my mind is leaving and my emotions pretty much left over the weekend. What do I mean by that? I will tell you. God was gracious to reveal to me the source of my spiritual mudslide and help me work through some of the issues. I think I explained last time that I discovered a tie with an ungodly source. This is why I’m in a parking lot. God is the Smartest Person I know and this needed resolve. Smart I tell you. HE knew I needed to sever that tie and He also explained some things that helped the entire situation make sense. So, what do you do when the enemy is breathing down your neck?

Be Brave

You get mad – moving after Dad! I want to encourage you today that it is time to be BRAVE. Instead of allowing yourself to be held by timidity – trust God with His timing and GRAB YOUR BOLDNESS. Instead of allowing yourself to be entrapped by an enemy – GRAB YOUR RESPECT and get MAD. Instead of remaining passive regarding ungodly ties – GRAB YOUR ACTION. Instead of looking at your situation from your position – GRAB YOUR VICTORY! Instead of allowing yourself to be anxious, stressed out, filled with tension or upset – GRAB YOUR ENCOURAGEMENT. Yes, I know I’m shouting. Can you hear me now?

Be BRAVE when the enemy is breathing down your neck!

Be Bold. Respectful. Active. Victorious over your past and encouraging for yourself.  Then, be good to someone else and help them be brave too. #Bravetobraver

Still Stuck in a Parking Lot

Surely, I won’t be here long…this is what I would ponder…as I asked myself why on earth was I still stuck in a parking lot.

I am at the end of an odd season. Everything within me wanted to give up and turn back and give in and look down. However, this was new territory for me since my mantra for some time had been just the opposite. I pondered a little bit on how many friends would stick around if I was no longer the go to friendly let me pray for you person who encouraged when life was bleak or dark. It only crossed my mind but let’s me honest now…how many friends have you chosen NOT to hang out with or be friends with WHEN they are not their usual fun self? This may not be you but it is some of you. God wants us to rejoice when others rejoice…but He also wants us to weep when others weep – not condemn, not try to change, not try to hurry them along so they can get with the happy program. But how about you take just a moment out of your day to be their sunshine, lighten their load, give them a word of encouragement, be their spiritual mom, friend or confidant. Are you able or willing to make room for others when they are not who you want them to be in YOUR season of life? Don’t be condemned and don’t be upset. God says it’s okay to go there – after all – honesty is a fabulous place to sit when still stuck in a parking lot.

Encouraging Myself

Thankfully, I’m about to the end of a season where I have been weeping any given moment of the day. Sadness would take me over and I would just cry and cry and then cry some more….and then I would be fine again – until the next wave of sad rolled my way. It was as if I had turned into a Hallmark commercial because I teared up at the strangest moments! I could have thought I was losing my mind but that was not the case. The LORD is my light and my stronghold whether I’m in the dark or in the light. HE still lives in me and through me and does not leave when I’m not on the top of my game. I think that is the challenge with all of us when living out life with one another. It’s easy to be around someone who is a happy camper but a whole new story when their day has turned dark and they need a friend to light a candle for them because they have no strength to even find the matches. Still it’s a beautiful season for me personally because of my relationship with the Lord…its so sweet and so timely and so good. I’ve been sitting in my prayer room listening to some specific lyrics from Merchant Band when they sing, “You are so good – You never leave, like I think You should. You are so kind ….You still give me life. I’ll let You make me, I’ll let You break me, I’ll let You fix me until we’re One.” It’s on repeat until I switch over to another song by Jason Upton when he sings, “Come up here, come up here My beloved” and he sings about John on the Isle of Patmos and his encounter with God. Powerful. In case you don’t know, John was banished to an island because of him being a follower of the Christ. He had to encourage himself in The Lord for many years because in a much stronger way than me, he was definitely stuck in a parking lot.

Enemy of Our Souls

You might ask if I’m feeling sorry for myself – no that’s not it. You might ask if I’m hurting or in pain – no, not as far as I know – but it could be part of it. Frankly, I have a sneaky suspicion that some of the emotions and ideas stem back to earlier in the year. Also, I feel I made some sort of emotional covenant with an ungodly source and this is truly the enemy to my soul right now….granted…yes…God is living and breathing in me and loving me….but some of this emotional duress is due to something other than God drawing me.  Yesterday, I dealt a bit with the enemy of my soul and felt a strong breaking through into my true self. I will tell you that whatever season of life you are in –  if you don’t deal with your emotions, ideas, feelings – they WILL eventually deal with you. So all of that is pretty much why I’m still stuck in a parking lot.

Superwoman Cape

I’ve experienced some loss –  our sister moved to heaven in January of this year. Prior to that we had some friends who decided they were no longer our friends. My sister’s husband also, suddenly passed. We had strong changes as well as several deaths in our church family. In addition, we have had sicknesses in our immediate community. I’ve been taking in one thing at a time like a good soldier 🙂 with rare discussions with myself on how I am handling these shifts and transitions. I laid down my superwoman cape many years ago or so I thought…apparently, I had a spare cape in my closet that I slipped on….and have just been going going going…. Though I’m a spirit being, my human being part of me needs ministry and loving and stopping and considering this thing called life. So, that’s kind of what I sense The Lord doing in me in this particular season. Though it feels very odd and out of sorts to be stuck in a parking lot, I’m cognizant that I have a good Father Who cares for me and is drawing me into His lap. We are reasoning together in this season – Him doing the talking and me doing the weeping – I mean listening. HE is building me back up and encouraging me and strengthening me. Admittedly, I’m thankful HIS love for me is so deep and wide. Though you may not be stuck in a parking lot, I want to encourage you to take deep breaths, look around, breathe again and give yourself a great big HUG from God. HE is never too busy to love on us whether we are on the road or still stuck in a parking lot.

BE BRAVE

Therefore, it may be time for you to prepare yourself to be BRAVE and #bravetobraver. Get ready to GIRD yourself up with BOLDNESS and realize you CANNOT live in a parking lot. So, have some RESPECT for yourself and get the plan of ACTION you are going to take when it is time to take it. Know it will prove to be a VICTORIOUS move over your past and very ENCOURAGING! God loves you and HE is for you and HE knows who we are and where we are and HE is not in a hurry to be in a hurry. So, I declare over you and me a release from false obligations, false responsibilities and false relationships so that you and I can BE STILL AND KNOW how good HE is and how for us HE really is….

PS………I’m not living here and you should not either – I’m already planning my escape and writing my next word –  LEAVING THE PARKING LOT……..LOL – how about you?

Please also SHARE this on your Facebook and/or Twitter.

If this speaks to you – let me know-let’s encourage one another. Let’s be a pathway of strength for each other through spring, summer, fall or winter – famine or harvest.
