Dear Single Mom:

Hurt. Disappointment. Pain. Regret.  You are not ruled by your emotions, but they are there.  God can relate.  He’s felt disappointment, pain, heartache, regret.  He did in Genesis 6.  The family He had envisioned did not turn out.  He spared a few and started over.  Everyone starts over, but I imagine for you, Single Mom, you find yourself starting over in ways you never imagined.  God understands.  There is nothing you could feel that shocks or rocks Him.

Heavenly Father,

You are a God who relates.  Thank you that we may approach your throne with confidence so that we may receive mercy and find grace when we need it most.   Thank you for healing broken hearts and binding wounds.  In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

“Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”  Hebrews 4:16

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Psalm 147:3
