Hagar found herself as a single mother through very unfortunate circumstances. This was because she was an Egyptian maid of Abram's wife Sarai (Genesis 16:1) and when Sarai realized that she could not bear children, she asked her husband to get children with Hagar. Abram obeyed and Hagar conceived. (Genesis 16:4)

After Hagar's conception, her relationship with Sarai did not remain rosy and she left Sarai's home and went to the wilderness. (Genesis 16:6) It was while she was there that God visited her by sending His Angel to her.

Therefore if like Hagar you are in a personal wilderness because you are:
* single 
* pregnant 
* without social support
* without a job
* hurting because of how you have been treated
understand that God hears your pain for His Angel told Hagar, The Lord has heard your affliction. (Genesis 16:11) 

Know that God also sees your suffering for Hagar Called the Lord who spoke to her, "You Are The God Who Sees" for she said, "have I also seen Him Who sees me?" (Genesis 16:13) 

Therefore, do not despair. 

Take heart by believing that you are not alone for God is Jehohave Roi the God Who Sees and He has also promised you saying, I will never leave you or forsake you. (Hebrews 13:5)

Pray and ask Him to show you what you should do about your situation the way He advised Hagar through His Angel to go back to Sarai and serve her in humility. (Genesis 16:9)

God Questions
To help you deal with your situation more effectively this Single Mother's Day, ask yourself the two God Questions  that the Angel asked Hagar in the wilderness for He said: "Where have you come from and where are you going?(Genesis 16:8)

Where am I coming from?
Evaluate the circumstances that have led to your current circumstances and if you have made any mistakes, confess your sins to God, ask Him to forgive you and believe that He has forgiven you because If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and He will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9) 

Then, rededicate your life to God by Doing a Spiritual Facial .

If you have not made any mistakes, also rededicate your life to God by also Doing a Spiritual Facial.

Where am I going?
Ask yourself this question so that you can prepare for the next phase of your life.

If you do not know where you are going because of all the problems in your life, ask God to direct your steps as you read Christian Goal Setting.

  1. Thanks for sharing. In my empty nest years, I can feel more alone at times. I have found the story of Hagar such a comfort in reminding me that God sees me and He will never leave me or forsake me.

    Thanks for sharing your insights here.

  2. I love how God saw Hagar when she thought all was lost. He sees us, too, even when we think he's not there. Blessings to you! Thanks for sharing with us at the #LMMLinkup.

  3. Thanks for sharing this encouragement at Booknificent Thursday on!
