There’s a Stepmom Club, or there should be. There are rules for the club: 1.) Never judge another stepmom (we all have different situations and you haven’t lived a day in her strappy sandals); 2.) Support one another.
I am inspired by the Stepmom Club. When we were going through our difficult court days, we had prayers from other stepmoms. We sought out our Prayer Warriors (those who took prayer very seriously, we knew we could count on them). One stepmom even fasted and prayed with my husband and me. Through the fasting period we saw amazing things happen in our life and our court case. Things we never imagined possible. We truly saw God’s hand.
Today I saw other women lending support to a stepmom who was very concerned about her stepchild. The women gave advice like “Read Psalm 34 – all of it.”
Here’s an excerpt from Psalm 34: 4-7, 19-20 (NIV):
“I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. This poor man called, and the Lord heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them…The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all; he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken.”
Today I am thankful for other stepmoms when they are brave enough to support one another and remind each other of God’s protection.
What are you thankful for today?
