So for the past few weeks my youngest daughter has been getting threatening messages from the girlfriend of her brother-in-law. Apparently, these days you can’t be friends with the opposite sex even if they are family. This other girl is quite clearly not had a good upbringing. Her family has been implicated in some pretty serious drug crimes and is not the type of family her brother in law should be involved with but that’s a whole other story!
So my daughter has been ignoring this rubbish for weeks, she won’t get involved in childish crap but a few days ago she received another quite threatening message, but this time my daughter decided it’s time to get mum involved. See my kids won’t let me get involved in their crap because I am waaaaay too passionate when it comes to the safety and well being of my kids. Anyhooooo she forwarded the message and was like I have had enough mum. My first instinct of course was to find this girl and beat the crap out of her! Of course my second instinct is the one I followed, I messaged this girl and told her it was the last message she was going to send or I would take it to the police and then get my solicitors involved. Well that really scared her and she told my daughters brother in law that she would stop if we don’t go to the police. Mission accomplished and I didn’t have to behave like a crazy person and stoop to their level.
HOWEVER, God was not finished with this! He told me to pray for this girl!! I was like hmmmmm then the scripture, “But I tell you love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” Matt 5:44, came to mind. I was like ooooooof course Lord and I went and prayed and I can honestly say that prayer was led by the Holy Ghost, it was so different to how I usually pray, it’s like I KNEW what to say already!
We have not had any more trouble from this girl from that minute forth. God took care of it and it’s over. God is so good and it just proves the scripture, “pray always with all prayers and supplications” Eph 6:18 does not just mean at prayer time. It means ALL the time! God reminded me that how can I expect to receive grace from Him if I didn’t give it to others? And I felt nothing but compassion for this girl that threatened my daughter. Now THAT is only by the Grace of God!
