Dear Daughter, Live abundantly free. —Book Launch Nov 1st 2020

Featured

I couldn’t wait any longer. 

It’s time. 

I did a thing. 

I wrote a book.

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.

1 year sobriety!

Today is a big day for me!

1 year sobriety✨

This means a lot to me because 1 yr ago I didn’t know what my future would look like without alcohol.

When I gave it up completely, my mind & body went into panic. How would I survive without wine for the rest of my life?

I learned that I was so dependent on alcohol. I relied on it to cope with stress. I didn’t know how to cope with stress in healthy ways like exercising, prayer, yoga, running, meditating, reading a book, taking baths or talking to someone I could trust about my anxious thoughts, fears or concerns.

I didn’t know how to have fun at social events without a glass of wine in my hand. I thought I was more fun if I drank.

I worried about people not liking me anymore if I didn’t drink. I looked up at billboards & commercials they bombarded me with ads how alcohol was so fun . But they don’t talk about how alcohol ruins families and causes many deaths in the U.S.

People ask me “Reyna, I didn’t know you had a problem with alcohol, why did you stop drinking?” The truth is I stopped drinking bc alcohol ruined my life in so many ways. I was sick & tired of it controlling my life.

People around me drank to much and acted out in ways that were not safe and kind.

I saw loved ones in pain due to their loved ones drinking excessively.

I grew up hurt bc of it & started repeating the behavior & hurt people too bc I too abused alcohol.

I hurt my mind & body for putting alcohol in my system for so many years. Have you ever looked at the brain of someone that doesn’t drink and someone that does? It’s crazy! God has blessed me with this body to fulfill His plan here on Earth. I must treated it right & nourish it well. My body thanks me for letting go of those toxins. It also thanked me for getting my life healthy in so many ways. I now have boundaries for myself, what I will allow and not allow in my life.

Alcohol is no longer allowed to control me. It has no place in my mind, body or soul.

This is 1 of my biggest accomplishments. It’s a one day at a time process.

I celebrate myself today! It was not easy but so worth it!

Own your healing.

Own your healing.

Stop blaming others for why you are the way you are. Yes they may have been the cause of your pain but they are not the cause why your stuck in it , depressed, unfulfilled, angry, bitter, or anxious. You are responsible for your emotions and your reactions.

Stop blaming others for your depression, your anxiety, your anger, or your tension. You have a choice to release the burdens daily. You have a choice to stop letting them treat you like a doormat.

Take responsibility, own your healing.

It’s your life not theirs.

It’s your freedom not theirs.

It’s your healing that births purpose.

Take heart own your story.

Your on your way to freedom. Keep digging out the weeds that no longer serve you.

Your abundant life is sprouting! See God is doing a new thing!!

It’s your healing that will set you free.

It’s your healing that God will use to set others free.

Rise beautiful.

Surrender your pain to the only one that truly heals- Jesus!

Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD. Psalm 27:14 NIV

Hurt people Hurt people, Healed people Heal people.

Which one are you?

In all honesty I have been both at some point in my life.

Today I am thankful because I continue to work on my healing. I have forgiven myself for the hurt I have caused others. Now I’m working on healing the hurt that was caused to me by others.

You can’t heal a wound by saying it’s not there!

Jeremiah 6:14

Hurt people walk in denial not wanting to face their hurt, addiction, or trauma.

Hurt people think time will heal all wounds. So they stay stuck in the grief, and allow it to isolate them.

Hurt people become defensive, self -protective and lash out at others.

Hurt people inflict their hurt and pain on other people.

Hurt people envy others that are living an abundant life.

Hurt people suffer deeply within themselves & their suffering spills over.

Hurt people don’t need punishment they need help.

Hurt people need the same grace and forgiveness that was extended to you.

Hurt people need boundaries set in order for them not to continue hurting you.

Hurt people have a choice to admit there faults so that they won’t continue to pass on the pain pattern that is passed on- generations after generations.

Now let’s talk about healed people.

Healed people, heal people.

Healed people admit their hurts, hang-ups and habits .

Healed people turn their pain over to God daily.

Healed people walk in grace.

Healed people stop trying to control people and circumstances.

Healed people make amends.

Healed people aim to be better than yesterday.

Healed people make time for prayer, self inventory and meditation.

Healed people set boundaries in order to guard their heart.

Healed people walk in freedom knowing whose they are.

@reynamorrisco

Healed people no longer wear a mask of denial.

Healed people don’t surpress their feelings they face them & rise.

Healed people stop accusing others for their pain.

Healed people take responsibility for their mistakes.

Healed people trust again.

Healed people recognize hurt people.

Healed people ask for help by someone they trust, a sponsor or accountability partner.

Healed people take responsibility for their own healing.

Healed people get healed and then go and help others.

I didn’t love myself.

For so many years I didn’t love myself. Why, because I didn’t feel worthy of being loved. 

I had made many mistakes in my past which led to low self-worth. I often felt shame, guilt, depressed and a lot of self hate. 

Being an adopted child (being put up for adoption) was the root of my pain. It created pain in my heart. Growing up I was exposed to alcohol and anger. This added to the feeling of unworthiness. I always felt like something was wrong with me. 

I got really good at not feeling the hurt I felt inside. So I surpressed it all. The anger manefisted and turned into self-hate. Hating and resenting my story. 

In 2012 I finally realized I was worthy. I was in need of a Savior- Jesus!

I am Daughter of the King! I am a gem, brave, creative, and I have a lot to offer to this world. 

Reyna Morris

Living insecure with low self-worth defeats the purpose of why God created me. He created me to live an abundant life. He created me to shine and not hide. He created me on purpose for a purpose! To forgive and to receive forgiveness. He created me to love and be loved. To love myself even in my brokenness. 

I know now in Him I am not missing, lacking or broken. I am complete in Him. 

And today I love myself more than yesterday. It’s a daily process.

If no one has told you today. You are enough, forgiven and you are so Loved my darling! Yes we’ve made mistakes, and possibly hurt some people along the way but God has forgiven us and Nothing can separate us from the love of God. None of our sin is greater than His love. 

“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39

Prayer is our lifeline.

What are the things on your 💛 ?

Instead of worrying or getting anxious do you go to prayer?

Did you know God offers us constant peace, fulfillment and an everlasting joy when we seek Him?

We must choose to receive it daily. Which means we must pray daily. Make prayer a priorty.

Prayer is our lifeline.

Reyna Morris

Without it we experience chaos, confusion, and lack of purpose.

We find fulfillment only in Him, the ONE who created us and sustains the universe.

We go to prayer not for Him to get to know us but for us to know more of Him. To know His character and His will for our life.

If you’re searching for peace, joy, love or purpose in this season I encourage you to seek Him. Pray, meditate on His word and promises. He invites us daily into a personal relationship with Him. That is where we find the fulfillment we’ve been longing for.

For those of us in recovery: We keep our recovery when we spend time daily in prayer and meditation. Learning His will for our life. Then we freely share it with others.

Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.  Jeremiah 29:12

Easy does it.

Easy does it.

Las Cruces KOA Journey

•used to tell someone to go ahead with something slowly, and carefully

•used to ask someone not to lose their temper

•be careful/relax

•lightly or carefully

do something gently

•keep calm

•slow down

•put the breaks

Allowing God to remove our character defects takes time.

In the mean time we must be easy on ourselves and others.

If not we can experience burn out, discontentment, and want to give up.

I don’t know about you but I tend to be hard on myself. I expect to much on myself. I also expect to much from others. Especially as a mom I often feel exhausted and I get frustrated that I didn’t accomplish much of my goals. Or that I’m not where I want to be. I wear myself out with the worldly pressures. Worrying about my time.

What I must remember is “Easy does it”

✨An “easy does it” pace will accomplish more than a rushed spirit. @reynamorrisco

When we rush we forget who we are and whose we are!

If we submit to every change God wants to do in our life and humbly ask Him to remove our character defects. God can then begin to work in our life. Recovery is a process.

He is a good God and He will help you recover!

While we wait patiently and gracefully. We can aim to be gentle with ourselves and others.

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him. Psalm 37:7

Maybe, I was chosen to forgive?

“Maybe, I was chosen to forgive? ”

@reynamorrisco

Clinging to bitterness causes further wounding.

Some examples of that are uncontrollable anger, hate, digestive issues, body tension, headaches, isolation, on going grief, anxiety and fear. And hurting more people because of your past pain.

Have you ever heard the saying, “ Hurt people, hurt people and healed people, heal people”.

Which one do you prefer to be?

I know I prefer to be healed!

Choosing to forgive is to stop focusing on what others have done to us and focus on what Jesus has already done for us.

Forgiveness is being in the presence of our Heavenly Father.

@reynamorrisco

That is His nature. So to forgive is to be more like Him. We find salvation which gives us the confidence in knowing forgiveness is the key to living freedom from our past hurts.

Friend, we must move forward! It’s time to let go of what hinders our growth. To trust God with the pain. To pray for the willingness to forgive. No sin is to great (abuse, addiction, adultry, murder, stealing, lying) for Our Father, He is mighty and He will cleanse our heart from the pain that so easily cripples our spirit and entangles us in the cobb webs of hate and unforgiveness.

Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing. Luke 23:34

PRAYER

Heavenly Father, my heart is numb, my spirit is heavy. The hate in my heart is growing. Cleanse my heat and mind Lord. Make it obedient to your word. Give me the willingness to forgive my abusers, those that have hurt me. As well as the willingness to forgive myself for the pain I also caused to others. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins and the sins of others. You are a perfect example of choosing to forgive. Thank you for choosing me to offer the gift of forgiveness to others and myself. May they see your power in your forgiveness. I let go of the burden, I release _____ (person or the pain). I am a new creation free from my past. Ready for the abundant life you have called me to! A redeemed heart I have to give to others. My I walk in my calling to forgive so others can experience you. Jesus Name, Amen!

What you think about yourself matters!

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23 NIV

What others think about you doesn’t matter. But what you think about yourself matters most.

Your thoughts become your actions. Your actions become your future.

If your constantly criticizing yourself. Constantly putting yourself down—Telling yourself your not able, or your not good enough, or fat, or your a bad mom, or a bad wife, or a bad friend.

Then your heart will signal to your mind and start to believe it, then your actions will align with the negativity that’s in your heart. Why? Because everything you do flows from it.

So instead fill your heart and mind with God’s truth about who your are in Him. Renew your mind with positive affirmations.

Important rule in life: You must believe in yourself.

Believe:

I am able to do anything with God’s strength.

I am a great mom!

I am an amazing friend!

I am creative!

I am a light in this world.

I am more than enough!

I have everything I need in life!

I am fit.

I am healthy.

I am strong.

I am loved.

I am brave.

I am Daughter of the King!
