I just lost my job because of autism. Doing this BY FAITH for widows and single moms with fatherless children

If you’ve read some of my other writings, you know that I do not equate a child or person with any disorders. A person is not a disorder which is why I wrote,” I just lost my job because of autism.” I missed so much work lately to care for my son afflicted with the horrible disorder autism that I lost my job. Not my son’s fault. But autism’s. And with that I can say, the enemy’s fault as well because the thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy.

As a single mom with a fatherless child, I am keeping my eyes on God.

Truly, healing can be a spiritual battle. I recently fasted and prayed for my son’s healing once again, and things got worse than in a very long time. BUT, just as Abraham was not phased by his very old age nor the longtime barrenness of his wife, Sarah, and continued to believe God’s promise to him that he would be the father of many nations, I too am not phased and STILL know and believe, “By Jesus’ stripes my child WAS healed from autism,” 1 Peter 2:24.

He was doing better and better and then a sudden regression again in some areas, but Lord Jesus, Your Word says if we are ashamed of You, You will be ashamed of us before the Father, so UNASHAMED, I declare that I only see You and Your Word and everything it says about Your will regarding healing. I don’t deny the current reality but know that the greater reality and truth is what Your Word says and that I am to merely stay in faith, taking You for Your Word UNTIL it comes to pass just as every faith warrior in the Word did when You made them a promise.

ALL His promises are YES and AMEN. My only part is to take Him for His Word no matter what it looks like and despite length of time. His Word is His will and His will is YES and AMEN.

It is NOT, His Word is – meh? – maybe yes, maybe no.

God cannot lie and His yeses are YES AND AMEN (established as fact). If Abraham behaved like most believers today, he would have given up because it took MANY years from the time God showed him His will and promise until the promise manifested in the natural / physical realm.

Of course, this doesn’t mean we must make a doctrine on time and lengthy answers to prayers based on His promises. Miracles can happen with a single prayer but that we must NEVER negate His promises based on time.

So, I am doing THIS by Faith…

  • a widow with fatherless children or

Please pray for work for me that I can do on a totally flexible schedule so I can care for my son at the same time (without having to have a set schedule meaning), for God to abundantly bless the work of my hands of things I have already created – see this page for links – for all my family’s needs to be met and like the Word says that He Himself goes before us and makes the crooked places smooth, filling every valley and lowering every hill and mountain before us in the name of Jesus.

If the Holy Spirit leads, please prayerfully consider visiting my GIVE page.

Thank you for stopping by.

“Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all (as it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations”) in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did; who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, “So shall your descendants be.” And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God,” Romans 4:16-20.

Reach Out. Seek the One, Says the Lord

REACH OUT. Seek the one, says the Lord

I was talking to the Lord this morning about how far below and not in line with the Word much of the church is in many things, but this morning it was regarding simple “Jesus” kindness and love towards each other.

For example, not once but many times, I’ve known widows and single moms with fatherless children who were hurting and going through terrible things and who regularly go to church or have been home bound because of a sick child and were “invisible” to the church. People knew they were suffering, hurting, etc., and literally no one, zero brothers and sisters even reached out to even pray with them. None.

Not saying it to boast. At. All. Because, it’s simply what Word says to do but sharing because maybe it will help one church or person be the spark and change in his/her church.

On behalf of widows/single moms with fatherless children, I’ve tried to arrange home ministry visits (multiple times) with very large churches in their area as well as at least a handful of churches in their area in general, and no one was “discipled enough” in any of them to visit a widow and her sick child to minister to them. They literally said, “No, we don’t do that.” What is so heartbreaking for me to bear is that this behavior most often comes from church leadership that is supposed to know the Word better than anyone. Who is supposed to be making disciples, so the load of helping others is not on them (a few people) but on the entire discipled flock. Supposed to be.

The Word, in many places, tells us that we take an active not passive role in blessing others.

We don’t wait for them to have to beg and beg to be seen and helped. No, we love Jesus so much that we actively reach out, seek them, make sure they are okay. Need prayer, food, etc. But my observation on many occasions is that these widows and their children were mere inconveniences and not potential good donors, not important enough to them in some way to bother with them. They’d had to practically beg to be seen and heard by their brothers and sisters and shepherds and remind them of their (her and children) existence. This is utter biblical ignorance and not doing the Word.

The Word says in Isaiah 1:17, “Learn to do good; Seek justice, Rebuke the oppressor; Defend the fatherless, Plead for the widow.” 

God speaks this in command form. We actively do these things. The widow and fatherless child doesn’t have to beg to be seen, helped, ministered to, etc. NO! The church knows the Word (or should) and is very intentional about doing it and making enough disciples so all are helped and blessed among them. I’m using widows, etc. as an example here, but all brothers and sisters among the church should be cared for, about, and sought out.

Prayer

Father, again I cry out. Shake the church awake. I prophesy to the church, ARISE, you sleepers. Shake the scales and blackness off the hearts of Your people, Lord God. Set their Spirits on fire to live Your Word in Jesus’ name, amen.

1 John 3:17-18, “But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.”

James 2:15-16, “If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, and one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?”

Matthew 25:32-40, “All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’ “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’”
