God, the Way Maker

Isaiah 43
1 But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

I praise God every day. I was a single mom who had to work in bars and restaurants and fast food, sometimes two jobs at a time, with little or no government help or help from my family or friends.
Most of the time I had no transportation. I walked up to 5 miles a day to and from work when I couldn't afford a cab.

I went through countless relationships with men trying to find a man who would help me carry my burdens...but there is only one man who ever lived who can do that...

I suffered abuse, mistrust, hopelessness, depression, and heartbreaks that knocked me to my knees. I lost everything over and over again, including my children; but I learned that hope is God, and Jesus can handle any storm.

I shouldn't be where I am today. I shouldn't have the future that I see before me today.

But God...
