Wisdom For Each Day – October 2, 2014

Hagar was a single parent, and she almost gave in to despair.  Perhaps you are in that situation also, or you may know of someone who is.  Forced to flee into the desert with her son, Hagar ran out of water and felt the end had come.  But God had not abandoned her, as we read that He helped her see a well of water He had provided.  It had been there all along, but Hagar only saw it with God’s help.

Being a single parent is very difficult.  Don’t give in to despair or self-pity, but look to Jesus Christ every day for the hope and strength you need.

God opened [Hagar’s] eyes and she saw a well of water…[and] God was with the boy as he grew up.

Genesis 21:19-20
