A dream of minecoming to fruition—8years thinking about it, planning it out in my head.
Finally I got the courage to step out, write it and commit to the process.
Why did it take so long? Fear, doubt, limiting beliefs, not consistent, and no discipline.
Finally 1 week before covid happened I heard It in my spirit it’s time to write no more playing around reyna. If you want this dream you have to go after it afraid. Then the covid stayhome order happened. So I knew it was really time, no more excuses.
So I called a few people (an author friend that is experienced in the writing process @matildabelleproductions , another life coach other than myself @sheis_fulfilled , and accountability partners @graham.becca ) to tell them I need accountability in the writing process.
I wanted to honor myself and commit to my dream. It took work, sacrifice, dedication, and courage!
Every week I talked to them to check in. It kept me faithful to the process. It took 8 months to get to the final steps. Now we are a few weeks from launch date.
So get ready this book is filled with courage, hope, faith and freedom. It is a devotional, love letters from God that will set you free from your hurts, habits and fears. A book that will be life transforming and lead you to the abundant life God has for you!
Stay connected for the launch countdown and pre-order your copy.
Nothing is to hard for God. Not the brokenness you feel, the depression, suicidal thoughts, low-self esteem, anxiety, grief, PPD, eating issues, addictions, or anger issues. NOTHING!!!
His strong power is ENOUGH!
I have dealt with all the things I mentioned above in some point in my life. Let me tell you most of them God healed me from. A few I still struggle with. I have wrestled with God asking Him why? That is when He said “Darling, my grace is sufficient!” Love yourself even with your weakeneses, you are enough. I am enough! If it wasn’t for my weaknesses and daily struggles I don’t think I lean on God everyday (sometimes every minute). The relationship I have with Him is beautiful, intimate and powerful because of my weaknesses. I wouldn’t have it any other way. He is my rock, my strength when I am weak.
The shift happened when I accepted my weaknesses. Stepped out of denial, admitted I needed help. That’s when the peace and power was activated in my life. I can live my life at peace knowing I can trust God with my brokenness and my entire life . He created me. He is in control. He is able to do more than I could ever imagine.
He is my Healer!
One day at a time I choose to stand with hope that one day healing will come!
For now I enjoy the process. I remain in proximity to the one who Heals. I Lean on Him with full confidence, praise Him, and thank Him for my weaknesses!
“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV
Do not waste your time and energy wishing for different circumstances.
Yes this season is hard, not fair, and can trigger so many emotions.
Instead trust God.
This is no surprise to Him.
If He brought us to this moment He will get us through it.
He promises us to be with us!
If you want He will even hold your hand. So be open to grab it.
When you pass through the waters I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. Isaiah 43:2
The Lord is gracious & compassionate slow to anger and rich in love. Psalm 145:8 NIV
Sometimes people do to us what we do to the Lord. We judge the Lord and call Him things He is not. We believe the lies. Some of us may think God is an angry God. They believe He has punished them. They believe He never blesses them or has anything good for them.
If they had an earthly father that was absent or abusive they believe the same about our Heavenly Father. Our God is loving, He is slow to anger. he is rich in love. He loves you. Adores you. Wants the very best for you.
This is why it’s important to know the truth about our Heavenly Father.
Some people label us and define us by our past and we must know the truth about ourselves and speak against those lies too. For many years I believed I wasn’t worthy of grace and that I wasn’t compassionate because of the mistakes I had made.
But the truth is my past doesn’t define me. It’s my current actions that will define my future. So I must change the narrative and speak truth into my life. If my God say’s He is gracious and compassionate then so am I!
So I will speak with the authority and love that I’ve been given towards myself and others. I want to reflect His character and walk out His promises.
So will you repeat this #affirmations
Repeat it until you believe the truth about yourself and about your Heavenly Father above?!?

I don’t know about you but this year has been different. It’s been hard, weird, and lonely. A lot of us find ourselves lonely. We can’t gather like we use to. We can’t hug, and kiss like we would like to. Mom groups are cancelled, bible studies are cancelled, recovery groups are cancelled for some. Self-care looks different and we have to get creative with date nights. We can’t visit our elderly parents and they can’t come over to spend time with their grandchildren. For some of us we need help at home and we feel all the responsibility is on us (so we feel overwhelmed) because we are afraid to have someone come help and bring the virus in our home.
Friend, it’s a weird season for sure. It can be very confusing, frustrating and lonely.
I found this quote which encourages me to ask God,
“God in this season of loneliness what is it that you want me to focus on?”
“What is my purpose in this season of life?”
“What are you doing in me in this season?”
When you know your mission, then you know your season and the purpose God has for you.
Shift your mind and see this season as a beautiful place. Lonely but never Alone. God is always with us. This is a place and Oppurtunity to figure things out. In the stillness, the quiet place. Rely on God’s grace to carry you through. He is faithful.
Trust that He is the answer to all your worries and concerns. He has a purpose for your life.
He is in the quiet places. Just ask Him. He will meet you right where your at.
We are going to get through this season together. Your not alone. I’m here for you. Your doing a great job. Have daily grace for yourself.
