Many of you know that I shared my testimony in the book, Rock Bottom is a Beautiful Place, earlier this year. It’s a collection of 32 women’s stories and how we overcame our situations.
I found myself broke, depressed, and desolate as a single mom with a 10 month old baby and one on the way. That season of my life was by far the loneliest and scariest time of my existence. But it also allowed me to be still and find God in that darkest, deepest moment and call out to Him as I had no other ray of light in sight. It was there in that “rock bottom” where something beautiful happened.
Life did not automatically become better after totally surrendering to God but I didn’t feel alone any more. God answered my prayers and replaced what I lost a thousand times over. He gave me a husband and blessed me with a daughter. I now have a family. Not a perfect family in the least, but a true blended family with all the craziness and love that goes along with it.
Single Mom Saturday will be a time to celebrate in successes of single moms, whether it’s financial, physical, work-related, or a breakthrough. It will also allow us to share in our sorrows that follow us during our single mom journeys and well beyond. Share you story and embrace this season of your life. God can use you and will be there for you and your children.
