Joy is not just a feeling, it’s a deep sense of gladness and delight that comes from knowing and experiencing God’s goodness. And who better to fix our eyes on than Jesus, the source of true joy? When we focus on Jesus, we’re reminded of his love, his grace, and his power to transform our lives.
To cultivate joy in Jesus, we can spend time with him in prayer and study of the Bible, choose to focus on the good things God is doing in our lives, serve others in Jesus’ name, and worship and praise God regularly. When we make JOY a priority in our lives, we can trust that God will fill us with his joy and peace.
In today’s fast-paced world, it can be challenging to find time to connect with God. However, it is essential to make time for prayer and listening to God’s voice to develop a stronger relationship with Him. Parents can teach their children about the importance of listening to God’s voice through an object lesson activity. To further assist with prayer, there are several resources available, such as the Abide App, Pray.com, and PrayerBowls. We also recommend watching Dr. Stanley’s sermon, “A Strong Life,” which provides insights into how we can develop a stronger connection with God. Finally, we encourage families to pray together and ask for discerning hearts that can hear God’s voice. Let us make time for prayer and listen to God’s voice so that we may develop a stronger relationship with Him.
Being a single mom can be challenging, but it’s a journey that can be both rewarding and fulfilling. While taking on all the responsibilities of parenting alone can be overwhelming, building a support system of friends, family, or other single moms can make all the difference. Managing finances wisely and seeking out resources and assistance when needed can ease financial stress. Most importantly, seeking God’s love, guidance, and plan for your life can provide strength, peace, and wisdom to navigate the challenges and celebrate the triumphs of single motherhood.
