So, my first go around with this blogging business – a complete bust. I wrote my best work ever, eloquent and insightful, but somehow never saved! UGH!! I’m already spent, so this is the down and dirty version, I’ll write the unsaved version again later.
I have a big big dream to write a book, become an expert in the field of being a single mom and speaking to many many other moms about how Jesus really does heal the broken hearted. This will be a great topic for me because he’s had to show up and heal every day of my separated/divorced life.
God has blessed me beyond reason since my separation 2 years ago. I’ve learned more ugly truths about myself than I care to document. I’ve also had my eyes opened to the truth of how God sees me, absolutely stunningly beautiful. I’m learning to be perfectly imperfect. I handed my heart over to Jesus just after my ex-husband handed it back to me a torn up bloody mess. I was promised He would never abandon or reject me, a truth I cling to even to this day.
I started a blog for the sole purpose of organizing all my thoughts, journals, book references, research, aha moments and experiences into one place. My prayer is that I can offer some encouragement and together we can get through our ugliest single mom moments. I’m extremely excited to learn a single mom’s most urgent needs.
I’ve had some discouragement with work and career recently that I’m having a hard time shaking. Satan has been pressing in on me “you aren’t good enough and everyone knows it.” God I need you to speak some truth into me. “Answer me when I call to you, O God who declares me innocent. Free me from my troubles. Have mercy on me and hear my prayers.” Psalm 4:1
