I have tried online dating and it is very hard to find someone with the convictions that I have in this life. I am not sure what caused me to write this, maybe just to vent, idk. Good luck to everyone and your adventures. May God bless you all! I was in my local Christian bookstore this week looking for resources for Christian single parents. So, toinght I decided to look online to see what was out there.
Anyone else feel this way? Unmarried father of two. See my boys every other day. I am a born-again Christian with 2 children, I found your thoughts very comforting. Yes, the guilt comes with the territory we find ourselves in and by placing our complete trust in God we will prevail. He looks after us after we make mistakes and boy have I made some! But slowly He gives me strength to carry my burdens and worries. May God keep watch over all us and give me some extra patience on those days that are just too overwhelming.
December 30, I am a spirit filled christian and raised three children alone from the ages of 2, 5 and 8, two boys and one girl. And, this is what I have learned. Maybe this short testimony will help someone. Their father was military and lived many miles away but he never saw the children very much his choice although he was given generous visitation.
We were very poor and I went back to college for a degree which took three years to complete while we lived very frugal. In the meantime I dated a man I planned to marry as soon as I completed my degree but the Lord had other plans. I became a born again christian and with that came major life changes. The man I loved did not become a Christian so the relationship ended abruptly.
I lived very modestly for many years with these children and at times I had three jobs trying to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table. I continued to tithe even when the choice was to buy food or give to the Lord. I am here to say that you cannot out give God. I lived from hand to mouth for eight years but finally the Lord gave me an awesome job, honored my three children with incredible intellects so they were able to get scholarships to colleges and graduate schools. They all graduated from high school with honors. They have prospered and been in health through the years and I have been blessed with nine grandchildren from these blessed children.
Yes, many times I was lonely, tired, depressed, confused and fearful but He never left my side. Please seek Him first and all the other things you need will be added. He kept my focus on Him and then I was able to focus on these wonderful children He allowed me to raise. You only have one go at raising your child. I am a single parent to a beautiful little girl. I am unmarried and there is no father present. I was a Christian before I fell pregnant albeit I was fearful and did not truly surrender my life to Jesus. I am now a devout Christian who has seen the wonderful hand of God in my life.
I completed my third year of law school whilst pregnant. I attended 4 exams at 32 weeks pregnant. I received two high distinctions. During my daughters first year, I attended numerous final year law exams. I even attended law exams two weeks after birth and received another high distinction the highest grade order.
I graduated from law school with honours. I am now undertaking my practical legal training to become a lawyer. How do I achieve this? I have had numerous problems. I am not perfect. I am not a super woman. Due to all the stress, I developed depression after the birth of little girl. It was the first time I have had depression, I prayed for God one night to lift it and the next morning it was gone.
My success in law is because of God. I surrendered my life completely to God. I let Him take control of my life.
I also found out my life purpose after praying to Him. It involves helping single mothers. I am a single mother to help other single mothers. Our God is great! I have suffered greatly albeit the Lord has been there the whole time. He is my guide and my light and without Him I would not be here posting this comment. I have experienced many things and I can tell you without doubt that Jesus Christ is real.
This spiritual war is real and we need to fight back for the glory of God. I remember one experience where my daughter fell very ill at nine days old. She had suspected meningitis and had to have a lumbar puncture. She nearly stopped breathing at home and she had this horrific rash all over her little body. It was truly devastating. We requested pray from a local church and also prayed very deeply.
The doctor the next morning stated that he did not know what happened and that there is no explanation. I am a single mother and I am not ashamed. If you are a Christian single mother, the Lord will take away all your fears. He will also give you your life purpose if you pray for it.
Dating as a Single Parent
Fellow single parents, i identify with all your comments, your worries and your pains. Definitely its really really hard to bring up a family single handedly. When you are down you have no one to lift you up, when lonely, no one to give you company, when sick, no one to give you that tender loving care. Even the pastor has no time for the singles.
How to Date Wisely as a Single Parent
May the peace of God that surpasses all understanding guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus. To be patient is to be blessed. Lord I will wait on you!! Awesome stories but to understand what God wants for us is to be able to listen.. Why is it that God hates divorce so much? The lonely feelings, the regrets, the wondering if HE still has a plan for single parents. He promises that in His word.
The thought of the vows of for better or worse, for richer for poorer, til death do us part. But then again, I honestly believe that we meant em at the time, as did all of yall. But I truly hopoed they were more than just words. But is that truly what God had in mind when he designed marriage? He created this blue green rock we call our temporary home in 6 days. If He can do that, I know He has something special in store for the 4 of us.
As well as for my wife. So, lean into His arms, as no one can offer love like He can. But the blessings He has in store for you is more than you can imagine!! I was raised Christian and parted from the lord when o was 15yrs old. I ask u as a Christian family to please keep us in your prayers. May God continuing to bless u.. I really enjoyed your web info.
If anyone know please Post it on here so we can all find that special someone. I am a single christian mother of three only my 8 year girl is at home.
