I have the New Bible App on my phone. Each day I share the verse of the day, it’s selected at random or maybe selected for you. Whatever the word is its for you and you embrace it. I catch public transportation and I read to my child to boost and encourage our day. Before we got off at our stop, a man said, Mother (no one ever used that to address me, so it was encouraging to myself) I love that you read the bible to your son. That is very powerful. Stay in that. I responded you got to, we need to know where love comes from.
I dropped my son off and went back to the bus stop awaiting my bus to head to work, god had this tree I was standing next to as I was talking to myself, (God records every word that you say) and he had leaves circle around me and I said thank you Lord. At that moment I came to my conviction .
I often resented or felt remorse that my son did not physically have a Father around. To show him how to be a Man. My husband who shared that role is currently away. All the time I battle how to teach my son to be a man without a man. All I knew was I’m going to raise him how I like to be treated as a woman. Show him ways like that.. But in that moment I realized that my son in fact does have a Father. He has the best Father of all, the Lord, King of all Kings, one who will never leave him, who will always be there, teach him right from wrong, and most importantly show him Love and how to live with Love. It’s beautiful. Not only did I encourage one person or maybe more, I encouraged myself through God. It hurts my soul, about these kids a generation after me. As well as adults before myself.I know that they are lacking love. So as long as I give my son something to stand firmly and believe in, someone who he can trust we will be blessed. We will be blessed. He knows who to turn to. And he’s very much into seeking his Lord his Father. He might not see him now but he will one day. And the best gift I could give to my son is love and for him to look forward to eternal life.
So I’m sharing only a fraction of my testimony not only to single mothers but every fatherless person. You do have a father. You just have to trust and believe in him and he will provide for you.
We must impart wisdom. It is the root of our behaviors.
