For the single moms with little to no help with their children:
As I reflect upon how I almost lost my oldest while pregnant with him and nearly lost my youngest and my life too while giving birth to him via emergency c section I'm amazed at God's protection and FAITHFULNESS over my life and my children! My entire world revolves around my boys and I wouldn't know where or how to begin my life again without them. My existences changed the very day I found out I was going to be a mother! Almost 6 years later, I'm now divorced and now labeled what I never thought I would be, a "single mother." I now know even more how hard it is to be a mommy of many hats! I know first hand how being a single mom can be beyond overwhelming and will often leave you exhausted on every end and sometimes in tears......BUT God is faithful and gives supernatural strength to the the physically worn and spiritually depleted! There are times when I want to sleep, write or even spend time in prayer with the Lord and I'm interrupted by something one or both of my boys need! Frustrating, yes it can be but with the Lord's grace all things are possible!
No matter the day or occasion, I always cover my children in prayer and I pray they see the strength I walk in daily but more importantly I pray they see my heart and life is completely sold out to Christ! For the moms who struggle to do it on your own, please know that every tear that's fallen, every moment you've been depleted of energy, had to cancel your plans, lost jobs because they we're sick and you had no one to keep them, when your nerves have been shot to shingles and you have no idea how you're going to make it another day, it'll all be worth it in the end! For moms with children who are sickly and have special needs I decree wellness and healing in Jesus name! Ask the Lord for strength and grace for the journey and believe it is yours! I pray in Jesus name what's been hard for you will now be made easier! I pray He grants you rivers of ease in every dry area of your life! God can and will make what was once foggy crystal clear! I'm so honored the Lord saw strength, perseverance & determination in me, something I don't always see in myself! I'm moved to tears that God would trust me enough.......gifting me with the opportunity to be a mother and for that, I'm forever thankful! I know it's hard, I'm walking the same journey with you! Be encouraged! I'm praying for you!
"So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are. In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation. All power to him forever! Amen."
