God Our Teacher ~ Encouragement for Single Parents

The following devotional was written by our Women of Courage Outreach Director Darlene Harris.

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go.  I will counsel you and watch over you”  Psalm 32:8 NIV

The wonderful promise in this Scripture is for the forgiven believer who is teachable, desires God’s presence and counsel, who faithfully trusts Him and lives upright in heart.  For this person, He will give instruction, teaching, counsel and protection.  I believe this means in every area of our lives, not just spiritual matters.

As the sole parent in your home, don’t you long to have someone who will do this for you?  Stay in close fellowship with your God/Father/Husband and talk matters over with Him first.  Verse 10 tells us that the wicked heart has many woes but the heart that trusts in God (it will be a pure heart) will find His love being poured out upon it.  He is waiting for you with great love.




  1. Donny Gamble says:

    Our children really do need to understand and know who God is especially for single parents of children who grow up with out of father. Letting your children know that God is their true father and he will never leave them no matter what happens. This should be the cornerstone of a child’s growth.
