Feeling Alone In Your Struggles

"You don't have to think that you are all alone in your situation. Psalm 27:10 states, "Though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me." Even if your family have written you off, because they aren't pleased with your actions, or you don't feel like there's no one on your side, just know that God is always there for you. Seek him in your time of need, he will be there for you. He's got your back all the time.
 
Being a single parent, I once thought, 'I can't do this' or 'This is hard', but one day while I was listening to this preacher, he stated that whatever you are going through you are not alone. Like in Isaiah 41:10 "so do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
 
I began seeking the word of God and now I am confident and at ease that God is with me through my single parenthood. And I knew that my struggle will not be forever. My daughter is now four years old, acting like a teenager. She even does her homework by herself sometimes without my assistance. Single parenthood is becoming easier for me.

Whatever you are going through whether it is trying to finish college, going through a breakup, and going through family separated from you, it isn't easy. Knowing that God is with you and you are not alone, it will get easier and it will be over soon. A saying that I live by that keeps me motivated is, "This too shall pass". Nothing lasts forever, therefore whatever you are going through, it will come to an end."

This is a post written by my sister to encourage and inspire women, especially single mothers like herself that you are not alone. If you have a story/testimony that you feel would inspire other women, I would be glad to share it on my page.

Have you ever felt alone in your struggle? I hope this was a message in due season. Let's have a heart to heart in the comments below.

  1. This is something I experience from time to time. But I really remember it strongly after my mother passed from breast cancer. With everything me and my siblings were dealing with, we had family members mocking and making fun of us, and even wanting to fight us! So needless to say, we don't talk. And then a year later I had my first child. It was so hard becoming a mother without my own mom to talk to. I was so depressed and alone. But in the midst of my depression and loneliness God found me, and thank God I found Him too! He saved my life, made me a great mother (yes ladies, learn to pat yourself on the back and toot your own horn sometimes!), a better wife, and an awesome woman of God! And every once in a while I get sad when I see how other families interact and get together, but I know I have more than enough family in God and the body of Christ! I hope this inspires someone, if your going through something that seems impossible, just know that God can and will get you through it. Sorry for the lengthy comment, but I had to pour my heart out on this one.

    1. Hey Tamika!!:)
      No apology needed, I'm literally pulling teeth for heart to hearts lol.
      Although your situation was rough, I'm glad and proud of you, that even during your toughest time you drew closer to God and not further away.
      And I totally agree with encouraging yourself, because if no one else won't do it , you better believe I won't pass up that opportunity hehe. God is able! And you inspire me to remember in spite of the circumstances, God will do it, he'll fix it! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to have a heart to heart. You're super fantastic!😉
