I have been using this time at home to develop my single mom ministry. It is something that I have wanted and tried to do since 2006. I have felt through the years that my ministry was to be an online ministry. The idea of an online ministry appealed to me because I am an introvert and can be socially awkward due to social anxieties. I fought God on it though because every other ministry for single moms that I knew about were in person ministries. I argued that I couldn’t have a successful online ministry. I was fixated on the idea that I had to have in person support meetings/Bible classes. ENTER COVID-19 and life as we knew it has changed over night and I hear God telling me, “I told you so! I told you I knew what I was doing!” YES! God knows what He is doing! Everything He does is for a reason. When He leads us in a specific direction it is for a reason. Even when that direction is going against the norm, don’t question it. God knows what He is doing.

So, I now find myself in full writing mode, developing the L.I.F.E discipleship program for single moms, setting up a Facebook group to go along with it, writing content for my blog, promoting this ministry in order to be able to serve single moms locally and nationally. I Know that others might oppose me because it is not a “paying job”. I know that others might ridicule me as being lazy and settling for the easy thing. I know that I may make others angry because I choose to obey God rather than man.

TESTIMONY TIME:

I left my job May 3rd of 2019. I moved to Georgia where I went through the training and became a certified Biblical lay counselor. In Georgia, I finished God Is: A Seven Week Bible Study For Single Moms, I volunteered with a community ministry, and I wrote my first 2 articles for The Life Of A Single Mom Ministries. It was a preparation time. I did not have a job. Fast forward to the present (August 2, 2020) and I still don’t have a job, but somehow I have not run out of money. I am not perfect. I sin just like everyone else, but I try to live in obedience to God in everything I do, even when others don’t get it. I believe this is why God provides. I give as God leads. I try to be a good steward without hoarding my money. I trust God to provide. God has taken care of me as I step out in faith to minister to single moms. Is opposition uncomfortable? Of course it is. It can be downright painful, but God is bigger than those who oppose us! I trust in HIM!
