I can remember a time when I started to believe the lies of the enemy. Satan whispering in my ear that I wasn’t going to make it and I wasn’t worthy to raise my kids. I mean I didn’t have a job, I had very little income coming in, and I couldn’t even afford to buy my children clothes. My daughter was battling cancer and here I was battling keeping a roof over our heads. Maybe, I was on the verge of failing, and it was best if I gave my children to their father.
One day as I drove to church I question God in my heart. I contemplated on just throwing in the towel when my daughter spoke up from the backseat of the car. “Mom,” she said. “I know why God has you as our mommy.” Tears began to fill my eyes when I heard her words. I said, “why.” She said, “because He knew you would be the best for the job.”
God used my six-year-old daughter to answer the meditation of my heart. He used her to dispell the lies of the enemy and to open my blinded eyes. I can do all things through Christ Jesus. No, we didn’t have a lot but we had enough. My children were happy and they never complained. My landlord was always understanding and never threating to evict me. God was truly sustaining us in the midst of it all.
That was when I stop questioning and started being thankful. That’s when God opened up doors for additional income, my daughter made it through her battle, and seven years later I have recovered all that I lost.
I encourage you to just hold on to God’s unchanging hand and praise Him for sustaining you.
