Pack the lunches. It’s daily. Keeping the house under controlled chaos. It’s daily. Running the kids different directions. It’s daily. Being the wise referee during arguments. It’s daily. Making time to bring everyone together for fun. It’s daily. Your private worries. It’s daily. Caring for the deep wounds of your heart. It’s daily. Managing the finances. It’s daily. There is so much that fills in your day.
Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burden, the God who is our salvation. Selah. Psalm 68:19
Just as your life is quickly summed up in the daily. God is also showing up for you daily. He daily bears your burden. He is daily with you in the worries, the concerns, the frustrations, the financial struggles, the heart- aches, the loneliness, the times of rejection, the weariness, the overwhelming dailiness of the single mom life.
Dear one, The Lord does much more than just listen to you as you pray about your burdens; He carries your burden. He carries you! There is no burden too small. He will carry it. The heavy burdens that weigh down your spirit are not too big for God. The burdens that are a part of your everyday single mom life are not meant to be carried by you. God, who is your salvation, can and will carry each one of them.
Will you take some time and write down your burdens and one by one give them to the Lord? As you meditate on the truth of Psalms 68:19 and let it wash over your soul; rest in the promise you are not alone.
