My life consists of experiencing and doing the craziest things. I call them a Linda Move!
It wasn’t because I was a single mom; it is just how my life ticks. However, while a single mom I found myself in some pretty me crazy situations. (I’ll share some dating ones at another time.)
One winter weekend episode made my list as A Linda Move. I had met my ex on the Friday evening because he had the girls for the weekend, and decided to stay overnight at my sisters. Saturday morning I had this incredible feeling of doom when I picked up my purse and found no wallet.
If you are like me, my wallet contained my life. It consisted of my driver’s licence, my one credit card, and debit card, health card, pictures, etc. All documentations that I needed with money were tucked inside. So with my PJ’s still on, bed head extraordinaire and a long winter dress coat I went on an important mission.
I drove to the high-rise office building where I worked, went through security and opened the door to the office. There under my desk was my GLORIOUS wallet. I just about crumbled in relief. It must have fallen out when I grabbed my purse leaving work.
So, what did I do with the opportunity at hand? With the girls gone, I buttoned my coat to my throat thankful for the long coat and high boots, and went shopping!
I haven’t shopped in my PJ’s since. I wish I could say I haven’t lost my wallet again, however, in all the Linda Moves of my life, God has been there listening to my panic, my cries, and my hallelujahs.
Job 29:12, When poor people or orphans cried out for help, I came to their rescue.
Psalm 59:17, I will sing your praises! You are my mighty fortress, and you love me.
I didn’t have a husband to help me, but I had God. My friends, He is enough!
Maybe you experience these kinds of things in your life. I am sure your mind is packed with constant thinking, planning and organizing. You are normal and you are not alone. You may feel alone as a single mom but don’t be discouraged you are going to get through all the challenges in life.
- Claim these Scriptures.
- When these Linda (put your name there) Moves come along cry out to God for help.
- Rejoice in how God helped you in your panic, your cries and your hallelujahs
