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. 

Praying over the kids….🎀🏈

You have to admit, there is a lot going on in the world today. We have Internet access which makes it easy to have anything we desire right at the tips of our fingers. We have kids in the world who are very advanced, known as the millennial generation. There is just so much going on…good and bad. With all that is going on, how do you compete with the world when it comes to your kids keeping your views and values? 

The truth is you may have been chosen to be the care taker of that child but they will have to go through their own journey of life. It’s important that you know that this child was born with a specific purpose in mind. Just like you and I had to go through to get through, so will they.

The best thing you can do is pray for them & no matter how hard you try you won’t be able to stop them from hanging around certain people, so pray for their friends as well. Any kids that come to your house pray for them too! Be sure to also pray as a family so when they ever face anything they will always remember to pray.

Sometimes at night I will anoint their heads with oil and pray over their minds to think healthy and to make proper decisions. I also anoint their hearts so that they will always have the love of God & for God. Every once in a while I will just allow worship music to play through out the house over night to set the tone for the next day. Do what you can to instill in them proper values. Also, be open with them & let them know you’ve made mistakes also so that your relatable. Life will happen to us all, but the best thing & most powerful thing you can do is pray for your kids and over your kids! 

God’s Promises About Peace: God has promised peace. It’s in the Bible, Isaiah 26:3, NKJV. “You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.”
You don’t need to worry. It’s in the Bible, Philippians 4:6, KJV. “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”
The Bible promises peace as we live according to its principles. It’s in the Bible, Psalms 119:165, NKJV. “Great peace have those who love Your law, And nothing causes them to stumble.”
