My life is not easy to explain. It has not been the rip roaring spectacular I fancied it would be but I still consider my life amazing. One minute I am laughing, the next hour I am crying. Change is the only constant thing in this world and life changes in a heartbeat. It is unpredictable that’s why we have to put our hope in Jesus Christ who never changes. He is the most reliable source of hope and strength that we need.
Many of my friends are too acquainted with life changing in a moment. One day their married raising children with a partner and then the next day they are facing a tear-jerking separation. They find themselves responsible for every aspect of their children's life. They are constantly juggling their work and their child rearing while trying to heal from a painful breakup.
My piece of advice to those mother like me who is struggling, it is okay, God won’t drown you. He won’t let that happen. You may be bobbing in the water gasping for air and just when you think you're going underneath he will lift you up.
God is going to perform a miracle in you and your children's life BUT YOU HAVE TO WORK HAND IN HAND WITH GOD.
If you're broken he's going to make you whole BUT you have to help yourself. Pick up yourself. Love yourself.
If you're sad he's going to bring you immense joy but you have to allow God to enter your life. Once you allow him to enter your life, you will not be lost. Happiness will be on your way.
If you're riddled with anxiety he will give you a peaceful heart. Together with love, acceptance and forgiveness you will have a peaceful heart, mind, soul and life.
If you're worried about making ends meet, he's going to provide your needs all you have to do is follow his way. Remember, he is the way, the truth and the life. (John 14:6)
God is going to work in your life to transform and renew it so you can move forward with your purpose in full confidence rooted in the Lord. Friends, if you need a good cry have one and when you're done Jesus is going to wipe those tears away and lead you into a fantastic future. All you have to do is have faith in him. You may be thinking this is the end of your world, let me tell you something
it is not over until God says it over
So pick up your head and walk tall with your life time partner: Jesus Christ Almighty!
Last Reminder: Single motherhood is challenging but we have a lifetime partner in God
