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!

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

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?!?

XO, Reyna Elizabeth Morris

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.
