Ladies, this post is for all those tears you cry in your bedroom when nobody else sees. This is for every single lady out there that has ever felt alone. Read on. I have an amazing truth for you.
For the single lady, watching all her friends take the next step, crying at night praying God will send the right guy. He sees you. Keep waiting. He’s preparing the perfect person that will be well worth waiting for.
For the married woman, who never knew just how lonely marriage could feel until now. Who cries into her pillow at night just wondering if her husband will ever understand. God sees you. He wants you to know that only He can satisfy. Your husband is human. If you wait for him to fulfill you, you will be waiting for a long time.
For the new momma with toddlers running every where, feeling like nobody understands the chaos of your life, feeling like you can’t take two minutes to even use the bathroom alone, feeling like not for another second can you carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. God sees you. He wants to help you carry your burdens. You just have to let Him.
For the single momma, who does the very best she can just to make ends meet, who feels like she will never be able to get ahead, who just wishes life were different. God sees you. He can provide miracles over your finances. He will always take care of you.
For the dreamer, who wants so badly to pursue this passion burning deep in her heart, but cannot seem to bridge the gap between life’s responsibilities and making it happen. He sees you. He’s making a way for those dreams to become possible. Take the step. Step into faith, even if you can only take one step forward. He will guide.
For the divorced mom, who never thought she would end up here, who cries at night into her pillow as loneliness sweeps over her. He sees you. He’s big enough to restore your life. He has great plans for your future. No past failure is too big for His Grace.
For the mom who’s children have turned away, who pray earnestly for God to save them. It’s not your fault. God hears your cry. Your job now is to simply be the example and pray. Let Him handle the rest.
For the women who’s husband is deployed or works out of town or late hours, who hides in the bathroom and cries when the kids aren’t looking. He sees those tears and they won’t be wasted. He can teach you so much about leaning into Him during this season.
For the empty nester, the momma who has devoted all of her life to her children, who are now gone, who now has to figure out who she is again, who her husband is again. He sees you. That you that you once were before motherhood is still hiding in there. Those dreams you have pushed down for so long mean something. Step out. Try something you haven’t tried in a long time. He is going to take you to new places.
For the widower, who daily walks through this life alone after having a hand to hold for so long, who wakes up at 5 and swears she can still smell the coffee her husband used to brew, who gets up anyway and brews the coffee and drinks it alone. God sees your pain. He sees your loneliness. Even if it takes everything in you, get up anyway. Because there may just be a young newlywed who cries every night trying to navigate marriage that needs your 50+ years of marriage wisdom to guide her.
For the career chaser, the business owner, the hard worker, who longs so deeply to reach that next step, to get that next promotion, to make more money, but seems to keep getting let down. He sees you. He’s preparing you, you are just not quite ready yet. He’s protecting you. But He also wants to remind you that even when you do reach that next level, it will not fulfill. Focus on Him becoming #1. Only then will true success happen.
For every single women out there who cries in her pillow or hides in the bathroom to let the tears flow when nobody else is looking, who feels so incredibly alone in this season of her life, I have to tell you the truth.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
No matter how alone you feel, you are not alone. Because God promises to never ever leave or forsake us. Even if you have no shoulder to cry on, He’s catching your tears.
And He wants you to know something else.
ONLY HE CAN SATISFY.
Not your husband.
Not your future husband.
Not your children.
Not your job or business.
Not your friends or family.
Everything in this world at some point will leave you crying into your pillow at night. But friend, I just think you need to be reminded today that God is right there beside you catching every tear. He loves you deeply. If you allow Him to, He will grow you, strengthen you, and then use your hardships to help others walk through theirs along the way.
“Consider it pure joy when you face trials of many kinds, because the testing of your faith develops perseverance (pressing forward despite difficulty). When perseverance has finished its work, then you will become mature and complete, not lacking anything.”
