What Does The Bible Say About Single Moms
The Bible does not directly address single mothers, but there are many examples of God’s gentle interaction with women, mothers, widows and their children. These examples, and God’s gentleness, apply whether a mother is single or married or widowed or divorced. God knows each person intimately and knows her situation completely. –Got Questions
Being a single mom is one of the toughest jobs for a woman no matter the continent nor culture. Some women are single moms by widowhood or by choice in adopting orphans or foster children. Some women found themselves abandoned by the fathers and forced to figure it all out on their own. No matter the reason, the Lord is close to single moms and willing to help them raise their children in the best way possible. – What Christians Want To Know

Overcoming Loneliness As A Single Mom
I’m praying for the Christian single mom who yearns for a husband and feels the loneliness stronger during the quarantine. May God prepare our hearts and the hearts of our future husbands. May he mature us in Him as we seek His will for our future. May He bless us with contentment and peace as we wait and hope in Him today.
My friend and member in my Coffee with Christian Single Moms FB group Amber Nicole said this perfectly!
“I made a comment a few days ago about my biggest struggle.
The struggle that right now I “am desperately longing for someone to love me and my son.” The struggle that I just want to feel that love. And yes – I do know that Jesus loves me.
Don’t mistake that comment for me being desperate and willing to settle for anything. Don’t mistake that comment for me being willing to be with someone for one night and be done. Don’t mistake that comment for for any of the random hookups and lack of standards you might think it suggested.
But there are days. Most days probably.
There are days that I long to be loved.
There are days that I wonder why there isn’t someone for me.
There are days that I cry and pray that someone would show up and care about me. About Lucas. About us.
I long for the best friend to share my life with and to raise my son with me. I long for the laughter and joy with someone else.
I long to be loved by someone.
But then there are also the good days.
There are the days where I get to hang out with friends who are so incredibly supportive.
There are the days where a sweet lady at church stops me to tell me she thinks I’m beautiful – on the day I needed it most.
There are the days where I’m so beyond happy that I was chosen to be his mother.
There are days that no matter how much I long to be loved, I am happy with where I am and what I have.
And so I’ll wait.”
It’s okay to feel lonely, we just don’t camp out there for long periods of time. And we guard ourselves so we do not make rash, unwise and possibly sinful decisions on the lonely days.
Bible Verses for Loneliness As A Single Mom
Here are some great Bible Verses for Single Moms to memorize!
Everyone struggles with loneliness at some point. Whether you are going through something hard that you don’t think anyone else understands or you are facing a change in life where you just feel alone, God’s Word provides hope and strength. There is someone who is closer than a brother and is always with You – Jesus Christ is our friend and comforter!
- Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6
- Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. Psalm 25:16
- He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:3
- For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. 2 Corinthians 4:17
- See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands. Isaiah 49:16
- You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11
- The Lord will guide you continually, And satisfy your soul in drought, And strengthen your bones; You shall be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail. Isaiah 58:11
- But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. 1 John 1:7
- Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2:3-4

Mental Health For Single Moms
When single moms struggle with anxiety, fear or higher stress levels that may keep them awake at night. These tips may help your mental health when practiced daily.
- Make sure you are getting exercise during the day.
- Don’t have caffeine, sugar or anything that keeps you up at night.
- Drink plenty of water.
- At bedtime read your Bible. Listen to some gentle worship music.
- Challenge your thoughts.
Our thoughts lead our emotions and feelings. I’m not sure what negative thoughts you may be struggling with but let’s say for example you stay up worrying about your finances.
You have a conversation with yourself and say okay; this may be a real concern. I may not have the $200 to pay the electric bill that is due next week. What can I do about this?
Think it out for a moment. What can you cut from your expenses or what can you sell or where can you pick up extra work? Write it out if needed.
When your thoughts are racing and keeping you awake at night, remind yourself there is nothing you can do right in that very moment to help the hard situation. Let your heart find comfort that you are doing your best or will be determined to do your best the next day.
When anxiety, fear, sadness creep in we must guard our thoughts as it’s so much easier to let them run wild and pull us into an emotional negative state. It takes discipline to challenge our negative thoughts and refocus on the good things. Feelings are not facts!
Pause in the panic.
Pray for help and guidance.
Plan out what is the next best step to fix the situation.
Journaling helps as well. Or something creative.
Self-care is important and sometimes self-care is doing the hard stuff like staying disciplined in eating as healthy as we can, drinking plenty of water, exercising, making wise life choices and tackling one problem at a time, one step at a time and leaving the rest to God. Do your part and leave the rest to God.
Prayer For Single Moms
“God has chosen prayer as his channel of blessing. He has spread a table for us with every kind of wisdom, grace, and strength because he knows exactly what we need. But the only way we can get it is to pull up to the table and taste and see that the Lord is good. Pulling up to that table is called the prayer of faith. In other words, God doesn’t tell us to pray because he wants to impose some sort of regimen on us. This is not a system of legalism… God says to us, “Pray because I have all kinds of things for you; and when you ask, you will receive. I have all this grace, and you live with scarcity. Come unto me, all you who labor. Why are you so rushed? Where are you running now? Everything you need, I have.” – Pastor Jim Cymbala
