I didn’t marry David until Austin was seven years old. So, I remember what it’s like being a single mom— trying my best to be BOTH mom and dad, on my own.
I think anybody with parents that split up, anyone adopted, or who grew up not even knowing their dad or mom— we tend to question our OWN parenting skills.
Am I doing a good job?
I think single parents live in eternal insecurity, wondering if we’re supporting, loving, and being there ENOUGH for our kids.
The enemy will dredge up all those feelings and all those doubts and try to tear us apart.
You might be thinking… I’m all alone and I need help! I just want somebody—ANYBODY— to want me!
Be careful what you wish for. I wanted somebody bad—and that’s exactly what I got. Somebody BAD! (My ex)
We don’t have to look for our value in another person. We’ve got value in our father— our Heavenly Father.
Am I talking to a single parent, right now, who can’t pay their rent, who has an empty food pantry, or who feels inadequate?
I couldn’t even begin to list all the mistakes I’ve made, because there are SO many! (Austin is a Campus Pastor, now. I guess I didn’t do so bad!)
Let me remind you WHO you are.
You are LOVED! You are NEEDED! God made everything in all of eternity pause just to make YOU the way you are.
You ARE enough! You CAN do this! You’re not just a parent, you’re a CHILD of the most-high King!
So relax— you’re probably doing MUCH BETTER than you think!
Sometimes, I just like hanging out and spending time. Tell me one of YOUR favorite things to do with your kids.
