Am I gracious and compassionate?

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?!?

Your thoughts become your future.

Your thoughts become your words, you words become your action, your actions become your habits and your habits become your future.

I experienced trauma in my life. I learned a behavior it became a bad habit.

What is that bad habit? Negative self-talk.

It appears as low self esteem.

This is not sexy to admit but it’s important to talk about it because not finding your confidence can hinder you from reaching your destiny.

Negative self talk can sound like:

“I can’t finish what I started.”

“I’m not smart enough.”

“I don’t have what it takes.”

“I’m not equipped.

”I’m not attractive enough.”

“I’m not creative enough.”

“I am not worthy-enough .”

“I am not thin enough.”

“I’ll never be successful.”

“I’m not a good mom.”

“I am a mistake.”

“I’m such a mess.”

“My life sucks.”

“Life will always be this way.”

“There right, I’m a failure.”

Friend, when we speak words like these to ourselves we are criticizing God’s masterpiece -YOU!

You are His masterpiece everything He creates is good!

God wants us to speak out of love. He wants us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. So how can we love others well if we are constantly having negative self-talk?

Like the quote above says,

Your thoughts become your words, you words become your action, your actions become your habits and your habits become your future.

What kind of future do you want? If your thought life doesn’t line up w/ the future you envision then it’s time. It’s time to speak God’s truth into your life .

Our words are POWERFUL! You are POWERFUL! You have authority—speak life!

You have authority to change your mindset- No more stinking thinking!

Instead say,

I can finish what I start with God’s strength.

I am smart because God created me.

I am equipped with everything I need to fulfill God’s calling.

I am able because God says I am able.

I am beautiful, everything God creates is good and beautiful.

I am God’s masterpiece.

I am fit and healthy!

I am a great mom, my kids love me. I love being their mom!

My past doesn’t define me. I am forgiven and set free because God says I am!

I have respect for the past.

San Angelo State Park Texas

I have great respect for the past. If you don’t know where you’ve come from, you don’t know where you’re going. I have respect for the past, but I’m a person of the moment. I’m here, and I do my best to be completely centered at the place I’m at, then I go forward to the next place.

Our trip to California consisted of staying at 4 campgrounds this was our first stop. We got there really literally at 12am and got up the next morning took a walk to explore the campground before we had to head out to our next stop, Phoenix Arizona.

Find your purpose this season!

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.

@reynamorrisco

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.

Comment below with a 🙏🏽 care emoji or a few word of how this encouraged you today.

Hi my name is Reyna!

Want to introduce myself, my name is Reyna Elizabeth Morris

I am a Latina, Spanish decent

I Love anything to do with self-improvement (books, podcast, resources, recovery groups, women workshops and conferences)

I’ve been in recovery for over 8yrs.

You may be asking for what :

Co-dependency, anger, fear, depression, anxiety, PPD/PPA, addictive tendencies: sugar, love, alcohol abuse, SLAA, attracting toxic people. A few other hurts and trauma that I will share about in future blogs/post.

You never know what anyone is going through. Until they share their story. Your story matters. You matter.

I’ve been a Christian for 8years. Was Catholic before that but didn’t have a relationship with my Savior Jesus Christ.

Why am I sharing all this?!?

Because this year I’m stepping out and pursuing my life’s purpose (I’ve been kinda been circling the same mountain because I keep running from what God has called me too).

Which is helping those that are hurting and lost. Why? Because I was once there!! And I’m still in recovery because Recovery is a process not a destination. It’s a One day at a time.

Recovery requires commitment, dedication, community your willingness to say YES to do the hard work that leads you to Freedim and most importantly We need Jesus- He is our savior!

So I will be sharing my experiences, strength in hopes that it brings you freedom. I will be sharing tools, real life stories, and testimonies in hopes to make your recovery process enjoyable, empowering and liberating.

Remember Life is tough but so are you!

My goal this year is to be certified life coach. 🙏🏽✨
