How Would I Know by Single Parent Director, Holly Crain
I made a commitment to myself to regularly be a part of the life of the church. I was reading my Bible and memorizing occasionally, and journaling my prayers. I was astounded at the spiritual growth I was seeing in myself. But one thing was nagging at me that I just couldn't shake. I feared I would make an unintentionally wrong decision...personally or financially.
I didn't want to go anywhere that God was not leading me, and I didn't want to make more mistakes. How would I know, though?
I began praying for a friend to come into my life that had wisdom and discernment. I needed help, and I knew it. That's about when I met Beth, a friend I will forever be grateful to because of how she spoke into my life. She walked me through some of my most difficult days as a single mom. She was there when I was lonely, she would listen to me as long as I needed to talk, and we laughed and had a ton of fun together.
She held me accountable and would lovingly steer me back on track if needed. Did I like it? Not really...but I gave her access to my life and permission to speak into it. She had invested in me, and I in her. It was a God-given relationship that I will forever be thankful for.
What I wanted most was to go where God was leading. That took one day at a time...step by step. Read James 1:4-6; let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.

I never planned to be a single parent. Like most people, you get married to stay married. You buy a home, start planning a family, and live life. Then, things change, and you find yourself alone, raising kids without much support. You can choose to stay angry or seek the help you need to navigate this new life. I am thankful for Kris and The Singles Network Ministries. The website is so full of excellent articles and resources. I am also grateful for the additional links to ministries focusing on single parents. With God's help and others, just one day at a time.
