Motherhood is a remarkable journey, filled with joy and wonder. But it’s also a path that can be lined with loneliness. As a mother, I’ve found myself feeling alone far more times than I can count. Whether it’s been on the days where I have longed for adult conversations, struggling with sleepless nights, or missing the freedom I once had of just going to the store alone. I remember as a new mother I would often cry while I sat in the bed nursing my son. I cried because I felt like no one else could connect with all the pressure and emotions I felt.
However, being able to find scriptures before seeking friends and taking time to remember that I’m not alone shifts my perspective. In Isaiah 41:10, God reminds us, “Fear not, for I am with you.” In your loneliness, seek His presence, and let His love fill your heart.
Finding Comfort in God’s Company
Loneliness can be shifted as we dig deeper into God’s word. I do want to preface, that if you need support, do not disregard that therapy is healthy and additional support along with scritpure is great. I share my thoughts on that in this post. Take time each day to read your Bible, pray, and seek His guidance. As you do, you’ll discover that God’s presence is a comforting companion in your journey through motherhood.
In your journey through motherhood, remember that there’s a vast community of mothers out there who share your struggles and joys. Reach out to fellow moms, and you’ll find strength and support in one another.
