I know we have all heard the saying, “It takes a village to raise a child”.
Well I have to say as a single mom, I need a really large village, especially since I don’t have any family near me.
I have to say God heard my cry. I am blessed with amazing girlfriends, coworkers, and people I do church ministry with. I am also blessed to have my ex mother in law still living with the kids and me.
This week I am extremely grateful. One my kids was having some behavior issues due to his ADHD. His school has been so supportive. They are quickly stepping in to give him extra support. My girlfriend have rallied around me. My church family has covered me in prayer and 2 different pastors are meeting with him this week.
If you don’t have a village or even if you do but you still feel alone, I would encourage you to reach out, on those tough days when it seems you can’t do another thing. There are people who do genuinely care about you and your family. The devil would love for us to think you are all alone and that no one cares about you or your kids.
If you don’t have a church family, I would say find a church because the unconditional love, support and help they have given me has been what has carried us when we couldn’t do it alone. They have truly directed us all to look to God as our ultimate source and to not give up.
