The Journey of Preparation to Singleness, Marriage & Intimacy With God
Day 56: THE FEARS OF A SINGLE PARENT
Being a single parent I have three fears regarding marrying again. One my children will not approve of my king to be. Two my king will not love my children as his own. And three I will never marry again because I am a mom.
I am not one to covet marriage, but I do desire to marry again. I would be content if God did not want me to get married again. But I know if that was the case it would not be a desire in my heart.
I never had a thought or concern regarding this matter until a year after my divorce I began courting a man. At the time I felt he was going to propose marriage. As a surprise to me, he ended our courtship and stated he could not marry me because he would one day be a wealthy man and didn't want to share his daughters inheritance with my children.
Today’s Lesson: When God brings two hearts together nothing can separate them. Especially in the case that one may already have kids.
God wants to share with us who are single parents to be encouraged in this journey of singleness, marriage and intimacy with Him. He is saying let not your heart be trouble, because who He has for you will also be for your children.
What God brings together nothing can tear apart. If someone runs, rejects, or overlooks you because you have children be rest assured God did not bring them to you. Forgive them, release them and most of all let them go. And then relax in the wait for your true love.
Until tomorrow those who are single parents, surrender your hearts fears regarding marriage to the Lord, and allow him to rewrite your love story. It's going to be amazing!
With Beautiful Love
