When things do not turn out the way we hope and we find ourselves stuck between a rock and a hard place, the only real way out is to trust God. That’s easier said than done because often it’s in these places where we find out what we really believe about God and what He has said about us. Sometimes we don’t like what we find out. As a single parent you might be feeling like you are between a rock and a hard place as situations and events unfold in a challenging manner. Faith in God and His promises are a huge part of your moving forward.
