Relationships, whether it’s a friendship, family, or love interest can be tough.
However, they are vital on this journey as a single mom. God uses our connection with people to help us in our time of need. He uses them for us to help others in their time of need as well. Relationships are how God spreads the message of his Son, our Savior.
Mama, ask yourself, how are your relationships going and how can they be improved?
Make time for others
You have a duty to yourself and your children, there’s no denying that however, you also have a duty to others. It is not good for you to be alone all the time. Reach out to family and friends. Give someone a call simply just to talk and see how they are doing.
Most people struggle in this area and it’s no surprise with the increase in the use of social media. We spend more time on our phones scrolling through images of strangers than we do talking to those who we love. Change that and begin today.
Join a support group
One of the things that I often hear from other single mothers is that they wished they had more single mom friends. They also wish that there was a single moms group at their church for them to attend. I have heard their requests and have made a group on Facebook specifically for single mothers who love the Lord.
In this support group, we share our struggles and our victories amongst some other things. Coming up in September, we will begin a monthly Bible study. It is important that we don’t forget God, after all… he is the source of our strength.
