Being a single mom is hard, really hard. As a single mom you handle all the hardships of motherhood alone, run an entire household alone, deal with the daily struggles of life alone, and on top of all of that; if you don’t want to stay alone forever you have to navigate messy complicated world of dating.
Life for a single mom is busy and stressful…. a full time job, endless to do lists, appointments, activities for the kids, commitments, deadlines, cleaning, cooking, bills, babysitters, trying to find time to date, maintain a social life and implement self-care. It’s overwhelming, exhausting and just too much to handle sometimes!
To the single mom who can relate, I have a few reminders for you…..
You are strong.
I am your God, I will strengthen you.
You are capable.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
You are not alone.
The Lord God goes with you, He will never leave you or forsake you.
You are valued.
We are God’s masterpiece.
You are loved.
Nothing can separate us from God’s love.
You have a purpose and plan for your life.
Nothing can stop God’s plan for your life.
You can rest.
Come to me all who labor are heavy burdened and I will give you rest.
Never forgot these things! Life as a single mom is difficult, stressful and overwhelming but it can also be full of so much strength, joy, peace and beauty!
