Eight years ago, I stepped out from the shadows of a five-year situational depression, born from the ashes of my dissolved marriage. Suddenly, I found myself facing a new reality – that of a single mother, an identity as unfamiliar as it was daunting.
The divorce was a tempest that rocked the very bedrock of my existence. It thrust me into a vortex of emotional turmoil, self-doubt, and an engulfing sense of loss. As a single parent, the task of maintaining afloat amidst the sea of uncertainty, while simultaneously nurturing my children, was an overwhelming expedition.
But even in the depths of this darkness, I witnessed an extraordinary metamorphosis. Gradually, I traversed the narrow pathway of acceptance and healing, akin to journeying through the ‘eye of the needle.’ I felt the Lord’s divine guidance smoothing my jagged edges, nurturing my bruised spirit, and equipping me to express wisdom and value, replacing the echoes of despair.
My engulfing shame began to transmute into His glory. Despite my imperfections, I started to grasp the magnitude of God’s love and His awe-inspiring presence. While my circumstances didn’t alter instantly, my outlook did.
The following reflection captures this deep-seated transformation. It was conceived during a period when I was still healing, still regaining my balance as a single mother. My heart was wounded, but within these wounds, I discovered a renewed understanding of my identity, my faith, and my purpose.
