Grace Period…..

Yesterday day I heard so loudly in my spirit…”Grace Period!” I thought what does that have to do with anything?

Waiting on God like:
   I have to admit I am “patiently” waiting ( as patient as my human self can be 😏) but we  all know how anxious we can began to feel when you know what lies ahead. The promises of God are exciting and mind blowing but the time in between can be excruciating to say the least!

   So when I heard this strong notion of “Grace Period” I had to look up the exact definition of it and it read:

::A grace period is a period immediately after the deadline for an obligation during which a late fee, or other action that would have been taken as a result of failing to meet the deadline, is waived provided that the obligation is satisfied during the grace period. Grace periods can range from a number of minutes to a number of days or longer, and can apply in situations including arrival at a job, paying a bill, or meeting a government or legal requirement.

   Does this hit your spirit like it did mine? Let me help you out. The reason some of us feel so defeated and overwhelming life circumstances in this season is because the adversary is totally scrambling to pull out every trick in the book to get you off course because he knows this moment is very crucial and your stepping into the next chapter of your life! The devil knows his lights are about to get cut off & he’s about to get kicked out! Out of every area in your life!

    Now let’s break down “grace & period”. Grace is defined as 2 different the first is ….simple elegance or refinement of movement “she moved through the water with effortless grace”…. In this time it will appear that your moving through this season so effortlessly but it’s nothing more than the Holy Spirit carrying you through. The second definition of grace is described as ….(in Christian belief) the free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings. You should know that you’ve been graced to go through anything that comes your way! 

    Now let’s define period: a length or portion of time & also a punctuation mark (.) used at the end of a sentence or an abbreviation.

You must understand that this time is just a period in your life that will soon come to an end! You just need to prepare to evict everything & everyone in your life who is not “graced” to be there! You’re on the cusp of the harvest don’t get distracted. Tunnel vision at its best is what you are to do until the reaping of your work has manifested in full.

Poom Poom Shop Been Closed, Now What?

     And so……. I finally let go of the dating scene….. What on Earth am I thinking I mean I don’t have to be sexually active to date. I don’t even have to kiss anyone to date, but to actually not date at all while waiting? Lord what are you doing? God knows I always keep something or someone in my back pocket I can do celibacy, but to be celibate of the heart, with no interaction? for me that’s just out of pocket.  God wants me to trust Him with all my heart, with all my mind, with all of my soul and that’s cool. I just like to have a bit of control. I mean what if something doesn’t go right God?  What am I going to do then? I guess this is what true faith looks like and feels like. You see I thought I said yes when I said yes to God. I didn’t know that my yes, didn’t look like God’s yes.FullSizeRender (2)

     This new Journey that I’m taking is very spiritual and it’s a bit  painful, because I can do everything that I thought God would be pleased with until it came to my time. He wants me to not only be celibate physically but mentally, emotionally and spiritually! But God why????IMG_0255 I never thought of time to be something so valuable to God(time is of the essence). He doesn’t want me talking to anyone, just waiting!He told me that doing things to pass time is somewhat more detrimental than you could ever imagine even something as simple as talking on the phone or going out to eat.  I thought I could do “the wait” by still dating, still picking up dinner meals every now and then but God said no, not  in this season. As time goes on I can see why spiritually I am not able to lean on anyone but God, mentally I am not able to relate to anyone on that level but God, and in my heart no one else has the capacity to catch it! This level is not eye level, but God level. this is definitely another level of being celibate.

    My flesh sometimes gets aggravated because I can’t do the same things that I used to do such as talk on the phone and go out to eat and you know just things to pass the time. My flesh is not pleased with that because in this season of being consecrated sometimes is boring!  I’m just being real. Other times in this season, in my spirit I can feel so excited and feel closer to God then I’ve ever felt before. I thought that I would be really scared to not have a plan B but when God has already given you the plan A which is His plan I’m beginning to find comfort in that.  The Bible says there is no fear in love and so what I am expecting for God to do I can not be fearful in my act of obedience. I can honestly say this is the first time that I’m losing control and yet I’m safe.
