If you are obedient to God he will provide your needs.
I never thought I would be a stay at home mom there was no way! I am Black no way! Independent woman status is in order. For a person who has been working since she was 14 years old its hard to say yes I am going to stop working and let a man provide for me. We label stay at home moms a White thing a weak woman syndrome disease but that is not the reality at all.
God had an outfit all planned out for me I just had to decide to wear it. I worked as a financial aid counselor and I taught at the college level. When I got pregnant with my son my mother n law and my Aunt were going to take care of my son with alternating schedules. Right before I was to give birth my Aunt gets a stroke she couldn’t even attend my baby shower so I am saying to myself my mother n law is alone then she falls off of a chair and breaks her leg double wammy. So me and my husband decided it would be best if I stayed at home. I struggled with this concept I was depressed, I felt helpless, hopeless and useless I even had an online job with Entwine Couture but then they started downsizing but then one day my soror through the Holy Spirit told me to start a blog. Me a blog? I seen these before and I was like how can I get people to read what I write my book was not that successful but I stepped out on faith and started to take off I started making money. I left the church where I was and moved to another church home and ministries started opening up for us as well.
I say all of this to say when God has something for you to do he will bless you to do it. God has provided our needs in every sense of the word I would like to go to a store and buy my favorite outfit just because but that is not my season.My season is to be the best mom that I can be. Its to teach my children about God. Its to be a home praying for my husband when he is at work. I never thought if I wasn’t working I could be blessed but I remember the scripture about Jesus calling his disciples. “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men”. Immediately, they left their nets and followed him. I didn’t immediately want to surrender my job but when I took the job God had for me I began to see my purpose.
Let God transform your life. What do you need to let go of so that God can move?
