Poor Me...

Okay, I've wallowed in it long enough. I'm getting it all out now...


I'm a single mom. My divorce will be final in July. My husband has gone off the deep end and is spending money left and right, except not on his children or his home (which was foreclosed on last week). Our lives have been turned upside down. We've gone from: me being home full time, homeschooling - to me working one full time job and two part time jobs and the kids being is school and daycare ALL day. We've moved. Almost everything in our lives has changed.


But we are going to be okay. I've gotten in a rut in the last month - feeling sorry for myself! It is hard, I will admit. I don't have it down yet. My kids are suffering right now. But I know God's Grace is sufficient for us. We just have to accept it.


It is time for me to let go of the self-pity and move on. The pity is only hurting us worse. I must pick myself up and do something about it.

Your struggling b/c your situation is HARD!!!! I can't imagine...I can't imagine!!!! You are right, the Lord's grace IS sufficient, but it doesn't mean it makes the road easy!!!! Do you have a church that is helping you? Do you have encouragement around you? Do you have a small group or care group at church that you are apart of?? Do you have family near? Just curious what your support network looks like right now! You NEED the church around your, sister!!!!!! I pray you have that!!!!! Do you still live in TN? Wish I could help you out, sister, by....I don't even know what....bringing you a meal or watching the kiddos or something!!!! Hang in there - the Lord is with you, and may your babes know His nearness through this too!!!

I'm not sure why the Lord brought you to the forefront of my mind today - but know that I have said a prayer for you and your family!

Have a blessed day!

you are not alone, even though you know it, He has not abandoned you or your children. where your lacking for them, He is more than enough, filling in all the little details that they need. God is crazy about you and wants to scoop you up and look you in the eyes and that He will walk you through this and that He is still in control. however He uses your brokenness, He can and will for His glory. your kids have a mom who adores them, may He anoint them and let them shine in this world.
praying for wisdom, courage, and strength for you today!

Everyone else has said it so well. I keep a picture of you at my desk and think of you often. I know God brings you to mind so I can pray for you. None of this makes sense and I don't understand how he could let you go through all of this. We can trust his word tho.
