God will rock our world to teach us to stand on the Solid Rock.
It can be difficult to understand why our world fell apart. The overwhelming emotions that you are drowning in can create so many other emotions: fear, insecurity, desperation, loneliness, sadness, hurt and many other things that you can add to this list. The single mom life is not just your life; it becomes your lifestyle. If not careful, it will become your identity. There is great comfort in Colossians 1:17, And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
While you may never understand all the “whys” or all the “how’s” to your circumstances, you can rest in the One who holds your “all things” together. God does not allow one thing in your life that does not have purpose. Yes, even this- being a single mom. With all the hurts, the heavy heart, the pain, the rejection of someone who once loved you, the finances, the daily things… There is a purpose. One of the many purposes to your pain and circumstances is to lead you to the Rock.
Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer; from the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
God will allow things to rock your world to teach you to stand on the solid Rock. In fact, He will lead you to Himself, the Solid Rock and teach you to rest. Dear friend, what is keeping you from stepping out onto the Solid Rock, Jesus Christ and rest in His firm foundation. You can trust that when you stand firm on Jesus, you can be immovable in the face of the whirlwind of emotions.
