Dear Beautiful Grace Readers,

I received this word from, Chuck Peirce, of the Glory of Zion Ministries, today.  I have been encouraged; I pray you will be too.  I look forward to the victory Jesus has already secured. 

After a rough start to this new year, I am confident that His Truth will prevail over every lie, that no longer the case set by the evil one will stand, and that Spirit-inspired unity will breakforth!

Take courage, Bride, for your Bridegroom is wooing you.  You are not alone in the battle for He holds you as you war.  He speaks softly, as a whisper in the wind.  Listen for His voice.  He is speaking.  He desires you to hear Him for when you do, the battle noise dims and the sounds of heavenly praise are clear.

Thank You, Dear Jesus, for Your encouragement!  There is none like You!!!

With Much Love...
Beautiful Grace


During the first service on Sunday morning, the Spirit of Prophecy began to stir. Anne Tate shared the following: "I am seeing that the River (of revelation) of Kingdom is passing through us. The River from the Throne is more solid and more real than we are, and is coming down on us and through us."

The Lord began to say, "For this will be a week of divine intersection. In your decisions, let My Kingdom way choose for you. I AM now confronting you with Kingdom ideas, Kingdom plans and Kingdom developments. This will be a week of Kingdom Intersection. Therefore, in your life at your divine intersections, let My kingdom be sought first.

"In the last war you were wounded, but in your wounding you have kept moving. Because you are here and pressing in to find Me, I will now lead you into the next war with a strength from the wounding of the last war. Don't continue to look at or lick your wounds. From your wounds your next victory has already been found. From My wounds I secured your victory. So with no fear, now go forth, into and through every assignment I give you. From My wounds you will walk in victory!

"I have a treasury of weapons to release! Lift your hands and let your praise become creative. In your creative praise I will fill your hands with the weapons that will bring your victory this season. I train your fingers for war! You are going to have to shift some things in your life. You're going to have to surprise the enemy with a way of expression that he didn't know you could express. That sound and movement will confuse him.

"The last drill bit you used has now broken. I have come and placed a new drill bit in your hand. Look and see the diamond tip, because in the tipping I will break through the hard place and bring forth new oil. Get ready to DRILL again! "

The Battle For Uniqueness

From The Screwtape Letters-Screwtape Proposes a Toast by C. S. Lewis

Screwtape, a mentor demon in the Lewis' classic, is addressing junior demons at "...the annual dinner of the Tempters' Training College for young Devils" by reciting the story of a Greek dictator who has requested advice from a fellow dictator.

"The second dictator led the envoy into a field of corn, and there he snicked off with his cane the top of every stalk that rose an inch or so above the general level. The moral was plain. Allow no pre-eminence among your subjects. Let no man live who is wiser, or better, or more famous, or even handsomer than the mass. Cut them all down to a level; all slaves, all ciphers, all nobodies. All equals."

Romans 2:10-12 clearly tells us we are all equals in the eyes of God.

"But glory and honor and [heart] peace shall be awarded to everyone who [habitually] does good, the Jew first and also the Greek (Gentile). For God shows no partiality [[a]undue favor or unfairness; with Him one man is not different from another]. All who have sinned without the Law will also perish without [regard to] the Law, and all who have sinned under the Law will be judged and condemned by the Law."
(Amplified Bible)

But this equal status has been twisted by the evil one in order to subdue the uniqueness God has woven into each one of us, and it seems whenever someone rises above the other corn stalks in the field, their stalk is whacked off in order to blend in with the others.

We were not created to live like that!!! Each of us is equally priceless and unique. Each planned with great forethought and perfect skill by the Master Creator, Jesus. How is it then that we lobe off the heads of those who don't look like us, act like us, worship like us?

Have you ever felt like your unique stalk has been knocked off?

I have, and it's a yucky feeling!!!

Holy Spirit, help us to see each other as a unique gifts of God, encouraging each other to stand tall in the way that God has fashioned us. Give us the grace to be who You made us to be, no matter how the evil one may attempt to knock our blocks off. In Jesus' name! AMEN!!!

Praise, Praise, Praise!!!

HUGE PRAISE!!! Mom was so good today. Her appetite is improving; she was alert and joking. She laughed and laughed at Brent's you tube video log "1adaymyles." She was so much back to her normal self that she kissed the occupational therapist on the cheek in thanks for helping her.

Jesus, I just wanted to say, "You are awesome!" You listen to my cry. You touch my soul. You hold me... Thank You, so much for touching my dear, sweet mother, the woman who modeled love for me.

My Lovely Mother

Below I have pasted comments from Facebook in regards to my Lovely Mother (The blond in the first row). We started off this new year on January 2nd when Mom was hospitalized with cellulitis in her leg again. She was sent home on IV antibiotics, which I administered. We just finished the IV antibiotics on January 21st, and then this new problem occurred. Please pray!

Just got a call from Dad that Mom fell yesterday and this morning. I’m hoping it’s just weakness and not the infection flaring again. Mom just finished IV antibiotics last week for a chronic recurring leg infection. Please pray!

Mom had difficulty walking again today. She starts physical therapy tomorrow. Jesus, strengthen my Mama. I still need her even at 45 years of age.

January 27 at 7:34pm

Prayer Update: Mom ended up falling again on Thursday for a total of three times this past week. Because her mental status continued to deteriorate, we took her to the ER yesterday. Thank Jesus, we did because her kidney (she only has one) was failing. The docs aren't sure why yet. Please pray! Also, pray for wisdom and strength for me, as I am responsible for some heavy decision-making.

Sun at 7:36am

Prayer Update: I spoke with Mom's nephrologist yesterday. Her remaining kidney is functioning at only 10%. He is not sure what caused the assault on her kidney, but suspects she took an over the counter pain reliever. My bet is still all the heavy-duty antibiotics she needed to take for her multiple infections.

She was pretty with it mentally yesterday. I am thankful we were able to express our love to one another. :)

I was also VERY blessed to be able to share my heart with my dear brother, Alan. He knew I was very tired, and needed to rush off to work. As he hugged me goodbye, he whispered one word in my ear, "Peace."

Thank you my, Dear Brother, you are an absolute blessing to me!!!! I Love you, and work went great!!!!
