Something the Lord made

Something the Lord made

Hello.
I'm Lee Ann.

I'm a 24 year old single mother trying to lead the live of our Saviour. My baby is just months old and I love her to death but she was not planed.

I was dumb when I was young, 23 lol. I was a virgin then. I started dating when I was 18 but I never "done it" because I wanted to wait til marriage. But then I went to college. I had no intention to date again because after 5 years of being single the thought of being in a relationship never crossed my mind.

Then I met a man named Tim. I tried telling myself that we're just friends and that I'm not looking but, clearly that didn't happen. We started dating and after 4 months of just talking and getting to know each other he wanted to do more than just talk. I didn't want to do more. He said he'd break up with me if I didn't do it. I know, I know. I'm so sorry for what I've done. I threw everything I have ever said I was going to do with my life, out the window. But, I didn't just jump up and just do it. I tried talking to him, explaining that I'm a Christians waiting for marriage but he said "if I loved him, I'd do it." So I did. Like an idiot I gave myself away. But then weeks passed and he treated me like I was some kind of dog. He was rude to me, talked about me, and mocked my God! I finally realized I was dating the devil. I had to leave him

4 to 5 months went by and again I found myself in the eyes of a bad man. This time I stood my ground! But he started crying and saying that he loved me. I know, I know! I'm dumb for being so dumb. I just didn't want to hurt his feelings.

I can't and won't tell about this one but he's the father of my child. All I can say is 2 months out of college close to Thanksgiving and he decided he didn't want to wait anymore. So....here I am, a single mother with the love of her life.

I titled this Renewed because I'm renewing my life.

My daughter and I are both Seventh Day Adventist Christians waiting on the Lord.

Its amazing how your name is hope because
The center I went to to find out if I was pregnant or not was called Hope Pregnancy Center.
My RA while in college name was Mrs. Hope and the nurse who took care of me name was nurse Hope.
Truly amazing!

Hello Lee Ann,

Congratulations on becoming a mother!!! Your child is blessed to have you as her mom. I rejoice with you as you renew your life in the Lord. I claim the promise for you that God will supply ALL your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Thank you for sharing your story as I'm sure it will help others who may be in similar circumstances. As they say "hindsight is 20/20." Sometimes our loneliness, insecurity, or fear blinds us from seeing that we are being manipulated. I am so sorry that you have been used and mistreated. No woman should be left to feel like a dog. You are valuable and worthy of so much more.

I pray that you will have the courage to pursue whatever action is appropriate to ensure that your child is supported financially and cared for adequately. Hopefully you have a strong family or church family that can also assist with any challenges you may face.

One of my favorite quotes is this one:

"There is a God above, and the light and glory from His throne rests upon the faithful mother as she tries to educate her children to resist the influence of evil.

No other work can equal hers in importance.

She has not, like the artist, to paint a form of beauty upon canvas; nor, like the sculptor, to chisel it from marble. She has not, like the author, to embody a noble thought in words of power; nor, like the musician, to express a beautiful sentiment in melody. It is hers, with the help of God, to develop in a human soul the likeness of the divine." (Adventist Home, 237)

God's glory is upon you. Bask in it. Be healed and encouraged by it. He loves you.

-Hope
