Devotion ~Lonely Moms

Lonely Moms

Passage: Genesis 2:18-25

In Genesis 2:18, God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone." Ask any mom and she'll confirm that it isn't good for moms either!

More than any other time in history, moms today are alone - single moms, working moms, at-home moms. Families are scattered, spereated by great distances. Schedules are stretched so that there seems to be no time for friends. Past wounds hold moms back from the risk of relationship.

One of the ways God provides for our need for companionship is through the church. Wether it meets in a steepled building on a suburban corner or in a shopping mall, God designed the church to be a safe place for us to gather, to grow. Join a Bible study. Find a mother's group. Find a prayer partner. If it wasn't good for Adam to be alone, then it isn't good for us either.
