Raise your hands if loneliness makes you feel fed up. On top of that, no one understand how you feel. They think because you have a baby you shouldn’t feel lonely.
Your friends have deserted you because you’re a mum. Your lifestyle is different to theirs. You don’t have much in common with them anymore. When they visit, you’re knee-deep in nappies, feeding or calming your crying baby.
I know how difficult it is to be a single mother. It’s easy to feel discouraged and battered by the storms of life.
Do you wake up some mornings feeling low and want to crawl back into bed?
Other times you feel like a tiny ant lost in a huge world. Not only that, but loneliness hit you like a huge rock. It knocks the stuffing out of you. The tears bubble up in your eyes. The next thing you know, they’re rolling down your cheeks and there’s nothing you can do to stop them falling.
Do you force your child to go to church because you want them to conform to Christianity? Church going plays an important role. But Christianity is not just about going to church. It’s a lifestyle.
As a Christian mum it’s natural to want to bring your children up in the faith. You want them to grow spiritually and learn the important principles of living a holy life.
