Sorry For Being Quiet For So Long!
I haven’t updated this blog for a while now. I apologize. I’ve been so, so busy. In case you don’t know, I’ve got another blog miraculousladies.com and I’m also a team member of YoungPrePro. I’ve been researching and writing for that blog. Plus I work. And don’t forget, I’m a single mother as well. Whew! It’s a busy life 🙂
I’ve got lots of article ideas for this blog. But there’s not enough hours in the day for me to complete all I need to do.
This article is just to give you a quick update.
I got baptised two Sundays ago. It was awesome. I’ve been a Christian for 12 years and it’s something I’ve been meaning to do for a while now.
I used to go to an Evangelical church. I was confirmed there. You know, it’s similar to when they christen babies. The bishop poured water over my head. At the time that was OK for me. But as I matured in my spiritual life, I felt that I needed to take the full dip like Jesus did. Plus getting baptised is also making a public declaration of my faith.
I’m still single, in case you’re wondering! And still happy in my singleness. But do you know something? I’ve been feeling a little lonely lately. Only sometimes though! Every now and then I long for the company of a man. I usually get that feeling when I’m low and stressed by the pressures of life.
Anyway, the good thing about being a Christian, is that I can pray and hand over my cares and worries to God. When I feel alone and stressed, I pray. The feelings I get afterwards are amazing. I always feel so much peace.
I can only describe it like someone going into my mind, taking away all my problems, sweeping that area clean and leaving it refreshed and de-cluttered. It’s similar to when you spring-clean your house. Everything is in its rightful place, the house sparkles, it smells lovely and fresh and you feel all warm and fuzzy when you sit on your clean sofa in your clean living room. It’s a wonderful cosy feeling.
So, back to my singleness! At the end of the day I’m content where I’m at right now. I know that when the time is right for me to meet a man, we will meet. But for now, I’m enjoying preparing myself for when he does come into my life.
My career or my calling
Most of you know that I’m a teacher. I enjoy helping students develop their skills and reach their goals. But I’ve been feeling restless lately. I need a change!
I want to help single mothers by encouraging and supporting them. All I am saying for now is that I’ve got a passion to help. And I think that’s because of what I’ve been through. I see so many broken, sad and depressed single mothers out there.
I would like to use my experiences to help others in whatever way I can. When you’ve been through challenges that others are facing, it’s easier to advise them by sharing your experiences. But you can’t give what you haven’t got. I’ve got a lot to give because I’ve been up the mountain, down into the valley, over the rocks, in dark places and lived to tell the tale.
Sometimes problems are blessings in disguise. If we didn’t have problems, how would we find solutions? Overcoming problems have made me who I am today. People always tell me that they admire my strength. That’s a result of enduring problems, coming out of them and learning from them.
It’s similar to a process of going through fire and coming out refined. Scarred maybe, but still beautiful, strong and shining like a diamond.
I’ve got a few ideas that I’m thinking of in terms of what I believe my calling is. I can’t tell you about them yet, because I need to be sure of the direction I will be taking. So when I have some more information, I’ll let you know. This blog was born because of my desire to help single mummies whether you’re a Christian or not.
Well that’s all for now. I thank you for being so patient. God bless. 🙂
Have you got any tips for me about the best way to support or encourage you? If you have an idea for an article, please tell me so that I can write it for you!
