What Does the Bible Say About Single Moms?
Yes, you can find it with the Lord Jesus through these Bible verses for single moms. The Lord is there to comfort you, and He promised never to leave you and forsake you.
Yes, he takes care of single moms, as shown by the example of Hagar, who became Abraham’s wife when Sarah couldn’t conceive. Eventually, Hagar was sent away from Abraham’s presence with her son Ishmael when Sarah gave birth to Isaac.
Hagar called God “the God who sees me”. So dear single mom, if you feel you’re alone, you are not because God sees you. God knows your hardships and sees your determination to provide the best for your children.
Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation.

Do not worry about provision because God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus. Finances may be tight even as you work hard, but God promised He will take care of all your needs.
Do not worry about finances because God has your back. Of course, you still need to work but know that God will pave the way to open doors of advancement for you. He will promote you and advance your career, or He will make your business prosper so you can provide for your family.
For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is his name; and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer, the God of the whole earth he is called.
You will never need to worry because God knows all of your needs before you even pray to Him. He knows every single strand of your hair and every heartache you’ve felt. God sees you in your struggles, so stay strong that He will come through in His perfect time.
Many times you might feel like you are drowning but take heart that God knows this, and He promised that when you pass through the waters, He will be with you. And when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.
Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.
He will not allow you to drown in your problems. He will protect you, He will rescue you, and He will lift you up.
