Single Mom about to become Homeless - PLEASE GOD HELP ME!

NEED A MIRACLE started this conversation

I am a single mother of a beautiful 10 yr old daughter, who has no idea that very soon, she will be forced from the home she has grown up in, to live in her mom's car with her mom. In approx. 2 weeks time, I lost my job, received an eviction notice, my auto insurance will be cancelled (5 days left to pay), which means my car will be repossessed as it's financed, my credit cards are maxed out, late, and over the limit, my credit score (which I struggled and worked so very hard for) went from "Excellent" to "Poor", and the love of my life has left me. Social Services have told me that there is no assistance what-so-ever available for my family. No medical, no emergency housing, nothing. I was told it was due to budget cuts. I have called every where I could find, and am told the same thing each time - "I'm sorry, there just isn't anything we can do to help you."  I receive no child support (never have) and have absolutely no where else to turn. I am now down to absolutely nothing. I just used the last bit of change I could scrounge up to buy some cereal and milk. I have been on my own and have supported myself since I was 14 years old. I have always worked hard, volunteered my time, and tried my best to provide a stable life for my daughter and myself. I understand there are ups and downs in life, and that everything makes you stronger, but this is killing my soul. No matter how bad my life has been, I've always kept my faith and tried my best to stay positive and "keep on keepin' on", but now I'm becoming so weak. I feel like I'm falling down a dark black hole and trying to grab hold of anything, but just keep falling as there isn't anything to grab. I'm afraid that once the sherrifs notice goes on my door to evacuate my home and we are homeless, that social services will then take my daughter from me. She still isn't even aware I lost my job. I've hid all of this from her to try and protect her. She's 10 yrs old and innocent and I hate myself because of all of this. I pray to God everyday and night for a miracle. Please, please, from the depth of my soul HELP ME!

Dear Shaggy Dad,

You say that you pray. That is a great start because you are right about the fact that it will take a while to get the law changed. I am sure that God is hearing your prayers.

However, you might want to add a few different words to what you are already saying. Like most of us, you are probably asking. There is nothing wrong with that. But I have learned that God also likes to know that we totally trust Him when we cannot see any evidence of the good that He is capable of bringing about. So, in addition to asking, begin to thank him for what you need as though you already have it. What you need is, in fact, waiting for you through God's eternal love.

In my lifetime, He has shown me this over and over.

So, here is a prayer that I will share with you. Copy these words on a piece of paper and add them to your prayers and include them EVERYDAY without fail. God will surprise you in an awesome way.

Father God,
Thank you for all your love. You know all the details of what I have been going through with my children. And Oh Lord, you know everything that we need including a safe home and food. You also know Lord that I love you and I believe that you love me and my children. I believe that your Eternal Love is the source of all goodness and I thank you for it. Right now, I am claiming my prosperity and my abundance according to the wisdom of the Holy Spirit. In Jesus' name, I give you honor, praise, glory and thanks for answering my prayers. Amen.

I'm a disabled single father of three and I'm homeless do to a regulation of calworks ! I have three baby girls two , three , and five ! Do to the fact that I have been disabled 80% of my life and my parents are retired my disability comes from sad now and calories count that as earned income and say I'm to spend the money the government has said is to take care of me alone and it is a federal crime to use it in any other manner ! So no I'm trying to feed my family of four with the money for one ! I have been told by every organization food bank homeless shelter emergency housing transitional living to be able to get my girls a home ! I have been told by every single one that I do not because I'm a male , or disabled or long term disabled ! Now I'm trying to do the best I can by friends letting me and my girls at least have a place for them to be kids during the day and at night we sleep in the bed of my truck ! What do I do ? I pray ! I'm trying to get the law changed ! But that could take years ! I have read every response to the poor mother that is going through it and I feel for her and have tried every one of your suggestion already myself ! What do I do ? My baby's don't deserve this !!!

I will keep praying for you memekkgab as you requested. Don't forget our last conversation. Not only must you ask Jesus for help, but you must thank him when you cannot see the help or know how it will come.

Memekkgab   in reply to woman in a shoe
I know this wasn't to me but I just wanted to say 211 really didn't do much in my case it's more like a suicide hotline. Bone of the government funded programs here in Louisiana could help me so I'm now homeless a friend let me stay last night but I have to be gone by 6:00pm today and I don't have a car to go, that's assuming I have a place to ride to I don't. The closest homeless shelter is in Slidell, Slidell is thirty minutes away from here. I guess I'm going to walk to town and find a bridge. I'm also a single mother my daughter is at a friends right thank you God.. Idk how much longer they are willing to keep her there. Wow I haven't ever been this low before we'll I lost my son that broke my heart in two but that's a different kinda low if anyone wants to view his website it's www.angelfire.com/music5/kylehingle/. Have a blessed day everyone I'll be praying for everyone please pray for me also.

God bless and help us both, I too am a single mother of a 14 year old daughter, unemployed, eviction notice pending, my car repossessed and a USMC veteran with multiple degrees. I can't even get an interview and even if I did, I don't even have money for the bus. Only God's intervention can help now.
