Dear Single Mom

Your love never fails, never gives up, never runs out on me." -Kristian Stanfill "One Thing Remains"

I don’t know about you, but it’s comforting to know that’s the way God loves us - but hard to understand when you don’t feel that from others in your life.

I got an email from a single mom today that broke my heart. She is going through devastating breakup, as if the divorce wasn’t enough. Now the relationship with a man that she thought God had chose for her and her has ended.  She asked "How did you have the strength to go on during the grieving of your divorce?"

Time, Therapy, and Jesus!  I will never forget when I was crying one night on the phone with my Dad, and he said simply, "There is life again."  And my therapist reminded me "in a year, your life will be completely different, better."

So, with heartbreak, I say go after the one that heals your heart, the only one I know that does that is not at the bottom of a quart of ice cream, it's Jesus.  Make him your first love.  Get on your knees and pray, "remind me your love never fails, never gives up, and never runs out on me.  Please help me feel you overwhelm and satisfy my soul."

Then, focus on you and your son, and the purpose God has for your family.

"A servant of the King serves to fill her purpose. She serves to fulfill her passion. She serves to love others. She serves to win souls. ~ Jennifer Maggio/ The Life of a Single Mom

Most Beautiful Woman

If you like to keep up with all the celebrity news stuff, you might be interested to know that People Magazine has chosen who they think is the World’s Most Beautiful Woman; Actress, Gwyneth Paltrow.

You might not agree with that celebrity news world, or everything that it says. But if you put that aside - I do think it’s cool that they picked a wife and mother in her 40’s as the most beautiful woman. Gives me hope.

To me, if a woman is dedicated to her family - that's real beauty. There can only be one Gwyneth Paltrow, but there also can be only one you. And God says He is enthralled with your beauty.  He's your designer.

If you're still having trouble feeling beautiful today, wondering if you're good enough to be loved, check out the lyrics from MercyMe's song, Beautiful.


Days will come when you don't have the strength

When all you hear is you're not worth anything

Wondering if you ever could be loved

And if they truly saw your heart they'd see too much

You're beautiful

You're beautiful

You are made for so much more than all of this

You're beautiful

You're beautiful

You are treasured, You are sacred, You are His

You're beautiful

 

Who is the most beautiful woman in your life and why?
