Today

Today was a day.
I did not like today. And yet, as I process.....I am hopeful. I am hopeful that the God of my heart, can move mountains, and save a woman's life.

I talked with a young woman today, who is in a tough spot. Pregnant with her fourth child, trying to make a life for herself by going to university.....has a boyfriend, who does not contribute financially to the home, instead, she works to provide for him and the children. She has a deep desire to break the cycle of her family, and be able to make something of herself, to make her children proud. But....this baby put a wrench in her plans. A huge complication. There is more to this story, and whatever it is, today it broke my heart. I could relate to this woman. If it weren't for the grace and protection of God, there is a possibility that I could have been her. I understand her desperation.

Everyday I talk to women who do not have the same standards as I do. They do not understand their value, like I have found mine, in the eyes of my Jesus. They do not know the Jesus I know. What would I do without Him? I cannot imagine how one can go through life without the hope that I have.

I quoted this scripture recently, but it rings in my ears again tonight.

Lamentation 3:21-24

Yet this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lords great love, we are not consumed, for His compassion's never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, "The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for Him."


And so tonight, this I call to mind, and I have hope. His great love is for every woman who struggles. His compassion never fails them. He is faithful to them.....and...... He is my portion.
