Recently, a friend of mine was reading about a king in the Bible. He was facing impossible odds when three countries came against his small army. So, he prayed. After praying, the king realized two crucial things: 1. the battle wasn't his to fight so he had to say aloud, "God I need to to fight this battle for me, and 2. he decided to send out a choir of men singing praises to God instead of his mighty fighting men. As these praises went out, the enemy army got confused and started fighting among themselves. This king won the battle without EVER lifting a single sword.
I don't know about you, but I needed to hear that! Yes, God wants us to fight, but not fight the battles we face daily alone. Proverbs 31 can help you understand that you are not alone in this journey whether you're a single parent, divorced parent, widowed, or just feel alone you are not by yourself. There are other people that carry the same struggle, the same burden by themselves and they need your encouragement.
I sure hope this has helped to strengthen you today and beyond your years!
With tender love and care,
