Single motherhood is like the four seasons that come and go every year…spring, summer, fall, winter. Sometimes it can be sunshine all day long and other times it can be just miserably hot, or cold. Regardless of what each season brings, know that God is simply just watering your seed so that you can blossom into the person he created you to be.
Seasons produce Perseverance
When you have perseverance, there is nothing that can stand in your way. Perseverance is a crucial part in your growth track with Christ. It is what makes you stand strong in what you believe in. When God sees that you are able to overcome challenges, he delights and rewards you for being strong and faithful. I know you are more than able to do this!
James 1:12Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.
Seasons produce Purpose
Seasons will come and go, but the purpose that God has given you remains the same. Each season will help give you a clearer picture of what that is.Just remember, God always works everything out for his good and his only desire is to see you and your children prosper in all that you do.
Jeremiah 29:11For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Seasons produce Relationships
God is very clear on what friendships mean to him. It is a necessity to have encouraging friends around you when facing challenges. It’s not always easy to get out of your comfort zone to meet new people, but it certainly makes a world of difference when you can connect and relate to other single mothers that know exactly what you are going through. Try it this Mother’s Day! Shoreline is having a Single Mother’s Luncheon on May 8th just for you and I know you will meet some awesome ladies there.
Ecclesiastes 4:10For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!
My challenge for you ladies is that you would put all your trust in the one who created you, because there is no greater love then his! May you enjoy YOUR season this Mother’s Day and may God bless you and your children above and beyond any of your expectations!
