About This Mom Thing!

mom 3

 

When I first thought of having a child and family, I never expected to do it alone.

It’s been 12 years I’ve been a single parent and 12 years it has its ups and downs. There were times I thought or questioned am I doing this right. We strive to be the best parent, we always want to make sure all the T’s are crossed and all the I’s are dotted, and it’s not until they grow older you know where you missed the mark.

I reflect how pleased I am of my mother, a child having a baby! However, she knew the importance of providing and that she accomplished all too well.  But as a mother, we must know that’s not the only thing that matters.  Many times we forget to support, show emotions with hugs and kisses, and communicate often.

So About This Mom Thing I can only say I’m doing my best from what I know and striving always to be better.

Mom, Tanisha Simpkins

APOLOGIES

Apologies can go a long way in changing the course of someone’s life. There are people waiting to be set free. Forgetting who the Son set free is free indeed.

The enemy would like nothing better than to rule the world. God does not want us in bondage or oppressed.  But for some it still takes apologies to be free.

For some apologies are to clear the air, clarify misunderstanding, or asking forgiveness of wrongful behavior.

John 8:30 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed

Don’t wait your whole life waiting for someone to apologize, you forgiving  is worth the freedom

Apologies

 

This Place

This morning I was thinking of my daughter and how she was going to the 6th grade. I began to praise myself as a good parent and having a good support system. I began to praise myself when having financial situation was still able to maintain and give my kids what was needed. I was praising myself for being a single parent when I didn’t ask or expected from my life. What a good cry that was!!

….then I was reminded; I’m not in this place because I’m so strong but because God has more strength who was I to give myself credit for being so strong and this super mom

I’m in this place because if I fought that battle he couldn’t have … I’m in this place because I know who I am and the God that I serve. I’m in this place because I put  all my trust and hope in him. I’m in this place because I give my worship to him as an offering. I’m in this place because I don’t run around like chick little syndrome” the sky is falling’ but having trust in God with Everything. You thinking well ok…..But wait! it took complete liberation and hands up to get here.

Some would say to me ‘Tanisha you walk like you have no care in the world.. I say to them ‘God got it’. The glimpse of my destiny God has shown me is greater than my worries.

This week my devotional song has been by Tamela Mann ‘This Place. Thank God for revealing why this song was placed in my heart. Thanks to Pastor John Adolph prayer line confirmation. He kept mentioning this place coming from Exodus 14:10-14. I’m In this place where critics, gossipers, disrespect, division can some from folks that I could talk with, sit by, work with and even pray for that I’m OK with. Fear not, Stand still, and Check out God. I am living my life in This Place

Here’s the caught, He moves us to greater, an even better place in him
