The Church YouTube channel recently released a new video exploring the struggles of single parenthood as part of its “His Grace” series:
When is the light going to break through? Cardin found herself asking this question many times during the two years after her divorce. As a single parent, Cardin experienced bouts of loneliness while juggling her responsibilities. She felt different from others when she attended school events or Church meetings.
Sometimes thoughts of failure crept into Cardin’s mind. Did she fail her kids, her parents, her family, and even God? The dark space she was walking through never seemed to end.[dfads params='groups=2870&limit=1&orderby=random']
Then one rainy day, while Cardin was driving home from the airport, her fears about the future turned to peace. As she turned the corner, a beautiful rainbow filled the sky. Later, Cardin learned that rainbows mean peace and prosperity, and she knew that was God’s message to her. That day she felt a little more supported.
Although Cardin doesn’t know what the future holds, she is able to find peace in stressful moments. Our struggles are real, but God’s grace gives us the strength to move forward with peace in our hearts. You are enough, you are successful, and you are loved.
