    Facing Our Loneliness

    Everyone has lonely moments in life, but when loneliness begins to define our lives, it causes serious problems. We compromise our principles to try to fill the emotional emptiness. We choose behavior that harms our health, relationships, and finances. The consequences can be devastating. Learn how God desires to fulfill every longing you have for meaningful connection.

Feeling lonely, sad, and kind of depressed

Discussion in 'Relationships' started by Tduncan212, Mar 11, 2010.

  1. The past few weeks have been some of the greatest of my life. I thank God that He has shown me so much.
    But now this past week has been a very strange week. One of my co-workers grandpa died on tuesday. Immediately I let her borrow some Christian literature and wrote her a little note basically telling her that God can and does bring good out of bad, etc. She told me thanks and that the only reason she made it through the rest of the day was because of me. Of course I let her know that it's all God.
    Anyways, I never would have thought that I would like her so much. Now I do and I am praying and feeling sad, more lonely, and depressed. She is married and I know that she is off limits. And I have been feeling sad the past few days, because I like her and there's nothing that I can do. I know that God probably has a woman already picked out for me to marry, but I feel like I have no faith, because of the way I am feeling.
    I just wanted to share this, because this is what has been on my heart. And I almost forgot to add that I truly feel that God placed it upon my heart to help her, to be a witness to her for the Lord Jesus Christ....

    brother in Christ,
    Justin

  3. I have decided that I am giving all to God. All of my life. Not just part of my life, like I have been doing. I want Him to have all of me.
     
  4. Talk to your Pastor he can help.
    I will be praying for you my friend.
     
  5. Hi there Justin, thank you so much for sharing your experience. I really understand how you feel, because I've been through similar experiences, and I know it's not easy and it's really unpleasant.
    Just liking and wanting someone you know you can't have feels horrible, I know.
    I think it's great you want to give it all to God, He's the one you should fix your eyes on. Try to spend more time with Him, and I'm sure you will find comfort.
    I'm sure this situation will make you grow in a lot of ways, keep trusting God, never lose hope, because He is faithful, He will never let you down, or leave you alone.
    The woman that God has stored for you will come eventually, be patient, and prepare yourself so you can be ready when she comes into your life.
    Don't waist any minute, live your life fully, and even enjoy this not so nice time of your life. When we are weak is when God can really do His thang in our lives right?

    I'll be praying
    God bless you!
