I am so thankful for all of the blessings and wonderful people God has put in my life since I moved to this small town four years ago after my husband left me and my one year old daughter.
I have gone thru the ups and downs of single parenting and have learned to work hard, work often, pray always and learn self discipline. It has been hard work, and very rewarding. God has grown me and challenged me in so many ways. To him I am forever grateful and a servant by choice to the end.
I find myself wondering if I can do better than working three jobs and picking up extra weekend odd jobs toting my four year old everywhere. Last week I found out I was losing my job and my apartment and my Mentor who was returning to Costa Rica for Missions. The Lord has grown me enough that the anxiety and fear of this current information has not overcome me. Rather I feel total peace. However, I would still love for my brothers and sisters to pray with me.
I do not feel alone, as I have grown to know God is with me as a single parent and with my daughter, who I remind daily of His goodness to us. I have learned to show her that in spite of our struggles, we can CHOOSE to remain in the joy of the lord and tell the devil to take a hike, becasue the joy of God IS MY STRENGTH… and I will not let the enemy steal that from me or my daughter.
I would like prayer that God will direct our paths. We know that scripture says “acknowledge Him in all you do, and he will direct your steps”. That is what I am choosing to do. Will you pray for us?
We are asking God for a miracle and to him that is nothing big! He really does love and care for each one of his precious sheep. The victory of our life is total surrender to the king! Hallelujah! God bless you all and remember that God sees and understands all… even our Crisis are not too big for him!
