Being a mom is the hardest job in the entire world, but being a “single” mom brings on a whole new meaning to motherhood. As a single mother, one of the most difficult challenges is managing painful emotions so they don’t manage you. On the surface, our emotions cannot be trusted and the enemy uses them against us. We need to release what holds us back and refocus on God’s promise of victory.
Over the next few days, we’ll discover a variety of feelings that hamper emotional wellness. For every roadblock, we’ll find answers in God’s Word. The Father understands our struggles in raising children alone and the questions we ponder: Will my responsibilities ever lighten up? How can I be a great model to my children? Will I ever get past “this”?
The good news remains. We don’t have to live under the tyranny of destructive emotions or our woundedness. We can find emotional healing through the Holy Spirit. God is at work even now in bringing a divine strength not of our own making.
Let’s prepare for the journey.
Beloved single mom, I have known since the day you were born that you would be in this place, but I am at work even now. Draw near with the strength to trust Me. I am performing exceedingly beyond what you can dream or expect. You are not alone. I love you. – Jesus
