Wait!!!........What???....Oh you are talking about that Superman guy.
As a single mother, I try to seem like I've got everything under control at all times for my son. I feel like if I show I'm wavering or if I show I'm afraid, then he will be too. As Mom's, we tend to lock away all the scary and sad parts of life to protect our kids. The load can feel heavy at times and some days I wonder if I can go on. With all the changes that have happened in the last two years, there is a verse I have come to know well. 2 Corinthians 12:9 "For my grace is sufficient for thee. For my strength is made perfect in your weakness." God doesn't want us to carry it all. I may try to hide the places I feel weakest from other people, but God can see the very depths of my heart. He knows the very essence of what makes me "ME". Although I struggle with hanging up my "SuperMom" cape from time to time and actually letting the real me out, God already knows who that is. He LOVES me for Who I Am. So go back to the verse again...."My Strength(God's Strength) is made perfect in your(our) weakness." When we step back and admit to God "I can't do this alone. I need you." That is when he is able to step forward and really shine. Not that I don't feel him on a daily basis, but at those silent and darkest times when I am in my room on my knees and crying that is when I feel him the most. It's like he is saying I am here. You don't have to do this alone. I've GOT this! So whether you are a Single Mom, Single Dad, whatever your situation is, know that God is waiting to help you. Should you ever need a shoulder to cry on, a friend to talk to, or just an ear to listen know that I am here too.
I love you all!
