Unwed Teen Mom

Dear One,

You have a most difficult job. But we are cheering for you. What a courageous young woman you are. It may be tough, you may get lonely, but you are going to make it. Just remember GOD HAS NOT FORGOTTEN YOU!

If you are interested in getting an education, please know that most communities have an educational outreach center. And for single mothers, there is a LOT of available help, depending upon the state.

The first place you should start is the regional office of education. If you don't know how to get in touch with them, call a local high school and talk to a guidance counselor as to where you can get your GED and what childcare programs are available. There may be some help or classes through the education offices. Also, if you prove yourself to be a good student and study hard, there is usually college scholarship money available for GED students.

The next place you should contact is the local department of human services or welfare office. Explain your situation, tell them that you want to go to school and ask what childcare assistance they can offer.

Also, the health department has huge resources. Tell them what you want to do and they should also be able to hook you up with all sorts of help.

Make those phone calls and let me know what you find out. I'm praying for you.

Please do not take your life. Please allow time and God to heal your heart. I know that you are hurting. But others have been where you are,and have walked, one step at a time, out of the darkness.

You will too. You are going to make it.

Here's what I recommend to you:

  1. Ten.Days.of.Encouragement.SIGN.UP!
  2. We need other believers for encouragement. Find a church home. See if you can find a small Bible study of people in your age range. Call some of the bigger churches in your area and see if they have anything to offer for your age group. This could be a home Bible study or a Sunday school class.
  3. Listen to inspirational music. There's a lot of Christian music in different styles. Maybe you've got a great Christian radio station in your area or maybe you can find one on the web that plays a style of Christian music that speaks to you like http://www.klove.com/listen/. You can also go to a Christian bookstore and listen to their CDs until you find something that helps you to feel worshipful.
  4. Read the book, Purpose Driven Life. This is a great Bible study and you need to have the Word in your life every day.
  5. Take time to read the Bible. If you don't have a Bible, there are versions available on the web that you can download. 

Don't do anything to harm yourself. You are so loved. Please give your situation time, please allow God time to move. He may be waiting for you to give in to Him, to say, God I will trust you, no matter what. Try trusting God and see what will happen.

Also, please go in for a medical checkup and tell your doctor about how you feel emotionally. Your doctor may have medications that can help you get over this 'bump' in the road.

Also, I highly recommend counseling. You may find a pastor in your church or other local church or some other professional who will understand and help you with your struggles.
