A place of empowerment and encouragment for teen mothers

hope-in-focus

Welcome to our blog that is dedicated to empowering, educating and equipping teen mothers to be greater women. This is a Christian blog that will use the bible and other positive sources as means to help teen mothers. We know that is very important that teen mothers realize that they are still somebody in spite of the choices they made. Their emotional, financial physical and spiritual health are vital so that their children can experience the best life possible.

So now you are another statistic and the world has already counted you out. You may have even counted yourself out along with family and friends. This is not your end! YOU ARE STILL SOMEBODY! Your dreams and goals are still achievable. You may have to take an alternate route before reaching them but they are still within your reach.  They may take you just a little bit longer but you still have a purpose to full fill. Don’t ever lose hope on your dreams no matter how many people tell you that you can’t do it. All you need is a YES from God.

Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT) “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” God wants the best for His children. He does not want you to fail in life nor or you a failure. He holds your future if you have a relationship with Him. You must accept Him into your heart and believe in Him in order to reap the benefits of His promises. No matter what the enemy may tell you or try to make you believe God is real and so is His love for you. He sent His only Son to die for your sins so that you may have life. Choose His abundant life today!

Philippians 4:13 (KJV) “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” This verse doesn’t say some things but ALL things. God is our strength and ever present help. He enables us to accomplish good things. We must believe in His word at all times. His word will never fail us nor change. With God all things are possible and without Him nothing is possible.

Once you realize that YOU ARE STILL SOMEBODY then you will be a better person and a better mother. You must have confidence in yourself but most importantly you must have confidence in the Lord. This journey will not be easy no matter what background you come from. Becoming a mother has its challenges but they are increased more when you are a teen mother. People will doubt your ability to be a mother and you may even doubt yourself. You will experience emotional highs and lows. You will have good days and not so good days. You will have to endure cruel remarks and ugly stares from people. There will even be people who will tell you that you will never become anything more that what you are now. Those people could never be any more wrong.

Motherhood is not to be taken lightly. Another life is depending on you. Your life is not your own but every decision you make from the day of conception will affect your child. There will be days where you just feel like giving up but you cannot. Giving up is never an option. You were created for God’s glory and He shall give you the victory if only you learn to trust Him with everything you have without any doubts. You were fearfully and wonderfully made in His image. You are not a failure! You are not stupid! You are not a loser! You have not been counted out!

YOU ARE STILL SOMEBODY! YOU SHALL OVERCOME THIS! YOU SHALL HAVE A TESTIMONY THAT WILL HELP SOMEBODY ELSE! YOUR FUTURE SHALL BE GREATER THAN YOUR PAST! GOD STILL LOVES YOU! HE HAS NO RESPECT OF PERSONS! Look in the mirror and repeat I AM STILL SOMEBODY as many times as you need to until you begin to feel it on the inside. Declaring positive statements over your life will help you in the healing process. You must be healed before you can ever move forward! It is my prayer that this devotional will help you in your healing process.
