     “When I am weak, He is strong.”

    Those words have been floating around in my head a lot the last couple of days.  I am weak.  This single parenting stuff is tough.  And there are many days when I don’t think I can handle it.  But God is gracious and He has provided the strength to continue on.  The roller coaster ride of “We are doing just fine – – Oh, there is just so much I can’t do!” drives me bananas.  I like things neat, orderly, and systematic. And currently my life is pretty much anything but that.

    At least ‘He is strong.’  He’s my shoulder to cry on, my strong arm to hold me up, my warm hug when the days are rough, my advice when I don’t know what to do, and my comfort when I know I’ve failed again.  He has promised to work THROUGH me, and I’m going to hold Him to that promise.

  • Liisa, I needed this. I have been struggling as a mother too. While God has blessed me with 4 1/2 children (#5 is due in April) I find myself wondering if I am going to be able to handle all of my children. My youngest is a few hand fulls and keeps me going all day. I know that the Lord will carry me through, I am just so thankful that I can see you holding on tight to the Lord and that encourages me to do the same. Thank you!

  • Thank you for sharing truth….single parenting is tough and He did promise to work through me. Always good to hear from you and what the Lord is showing you. Many hugs,
