Motherhood as a Single Parent 

Being a parent is by far the hardest job one can have & being a single parent is probably even tougher. I experienced it for several years with my oldest son but his dad was always active in his life. He was 2 yrs old when we broke up. The hardest part for me was knowing that my son would never know what it’s like to live with both parents. Growing up, I was blessed to live under the same roof as my mom & dad. So, it was heartbreaking to think that he would never get to experience it. Thankfully, God allowed us to have a second chance. He restored my family & it was only by His grace. 

I may not know what it’s like to live in a single parent household & I may not know what it’s like to struggle raising a child/children without the help of the other parent but I see it happening around me. I have friends & relatives that do know what it’s like. So, when I came across this blog post of an empowering woman who shares her experience as a single parent, I just knew I had to share it on my blog – How to be a good single mom.

On good days & bad days, we must hold on to God’s Word, which gives us the strength we need to keep going – single or not. I pray these scriptures comfort & strengthen you. 

When You’re Overwhelmed
But those who trust in the Lord for help will find their strength renewed. They will rise on wings like eagles; they will run and not get weary; they will walk and not grow weak.” Isaiah 40:31 (GNT)  

When You’re Tired
“Come to me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28 (GNT)

When You Feel Alone
“’The mountains and hills may crumble, but my love for you will never end; I will keep forever my promise of peace.’ So says the Lord who loves you.” Isaiah 54:10 (GNT)

When You’re Worried about Money
“And with all his abundant wealth through Christ Jesus, my God will supply all your needs.” Philippians 4:19 (GNT)

When You Need Wisdom
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Never rely on what you think you know. Remember the Lord in everything you do, and he will show you the right way. Proverbs 3:5-6 (GNT)

When You’re Unsure about Your Kids’ Future
“We have not stopped praying for you since the first day we heard about you. In fact, we always pray that God will show you everything he wants you to do and that you may have all the wisdom and understanding that his Spirit gives. Then you will live a life that honors the Lord, and you will always please him by doing good deeds. You will come to know God even better. His glorious power will make you patient and strong enough to endure anything, and you will be truly happy.” Colossians 1:9-11 (CEV)

About Me Section 💭

When I started this blog, I wasn’t sure on how to go about describing myself in the About Me section. I was a bit hesitant because I was concerned about what others might say or think about me but then I faced my fear head on. I CHOSE not to allow those concerns to affect me nor diminish God’s work in me & through me. Anytime I read someone’s blog, I look forward to learning more about who they are & what inspired them to blog. If you feel the same, feel free to click HERE to get to know a little bit about me & what inspired me to start this blog. Also, please be sure to click on the links provided for encouraging resources that have blessed me along the way.

May the love I have for you grow deeper & deeper. Don’t allow me to become complacent. Continue to be the lover of my soul.

How I came to know Jesus

I had been contemplating on whether or not I should share this post for several days now because many people see the love I have for Jesus but don’t know the story behind my praise. The purpose in sharing my testimony is not for pity nor am I seeking for attenion but to illustrate God’s grace, mercy, forgiveness & over all God’s love for us. However, I’ve come a long way & still have a long way to go. As long as I am still breathing, I will be learning & growing as a human being & most importantly as a follower of Jesus Christ.
