Dear Single Mom,
I feel like I hit rock bottom. I’m a little dramatic here, but seriously, I was not okay. It took some time to realize that it is okay not to be OK! This year started rough for me. It was so fierce that I wanted to throw the whole year away, and it was only the first week of January. One of the main reasons I felt this way was that the job offer I had accepted was no longer on the table because of something entirely out of my control. When I say nothing was going my way, I mean NOTHING!
I share this to be transparent; we all have struggles, we all are dealing with something. I want to remind you that even though people look put together, it is just what they decide to show. Jeremiah 29:11 declares that Lord knows the plans He has for me, to prosper me and not harm me, plans that give me hope and a future. It is so essential to run to Jesus with all of your problems. Talk to Him like you would to your best friend. It is also vital to have a sisterhood, who you can trust not to have to go through certain situations alone.
I’ll finish this blog with a praise report! I started a new job in a completely different field than I have been in the last seven years. The crazy part is that I was so discouraged because I was told that the amount I asked for was only given to people who had years of experience. But look at how good God is! I was offered three dollars more than what I requested. I accepted the offer with tears in my eyes, but I acted like it was no big deal because I know that this is only the beginning of what God has for me. Stay encouraged, sis!
