I need to take a moment to share my testimony. My prayer is that this will encourage someone who is going through a rough patch.
When I was 40, I was facing divorce after 17 years. I wasn’t sure what would happen to me. I was frankly depressed, scared, and feeling unloved and unlovable. My husband was the bread winner, and my salary was a supplement. I didn’t know how I would face the world as a divorced mother of two – how I would provide for my family.
One day, God spoke to me and told me clear as day, “I am your provider.” And he has never fallen short of his word! Have there been tough times? Yes. My credit is less-than-stellar (at the moment). But God has been with me. He has provided for me and my kids, and continued to bring more job and business opportunities my way. I am SO GRATEFUL.
Some of you have seen the recent posts of my blessings. I just want to pause and give God the glory. This is not me – it’s HIM. He continues to bless, prosper and keep me. It doesn’t mean that I don’t have problems or struggle – we all do. And you know I work hard for it! But God is still in the blessing business, and I give HIM all the Glory!
Trust in the Lord with ALL YOUR HEART, and LEAN NOT unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and HE will direct your path. Proverbs 3: 5-6
