    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.

Looking for Hope

Discussion in 'Counseling' started by Looking for hope, Apr 24, 2016.

  1. I lost my son in November 18, 2015 he was 63 days old i have 2 other sons who are 5 and 2 and a daughter who is 12 and a daughter who died in 1999 during child birth. I have always just tried to push people away and also i pushed God away. His existence was never in question to me i always knew he was there. I know now my family needs him. If you can help me find my way I would be grateful
     
  2. Death in a family always causes us to "reassess" our lives to see what really is important to us. The things we thought were important were not. The good news is your children are with the Lord, and you will see them again one day. The Lord is with the broken hearted as this is what you are sensing right now, and his desire is for you to come unto him. Suffering the loss of a child is almost unbearable, and there are no words that anyone can be say to take that hurt away. Only the Lord God is able to sustain you in this time, and give you a "living hope" for the future. Call out to him now, and ask him to help you.

    If you do not know how to receive Jesus as your savior, this is how.

    Rom 10:9 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
    Rom 10:10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.
    Rom 10:11 As the Scriptures tell us, "Anyone who trusts in Him will never be disgraced." (NLT)

    I did this more than 40 years ago, and I have never been the same.
     
  3. "But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope."
    (1 Thessalonians 4:13)
    The Holy Spirit of Truth speaking through the Apostle Paul here is telling us not that we cannot grieve over a loss of a loved one, but only that we do not grieve as others which have no hope: by what you've said you are one who has hope in the Lord; only we must remember that true hope is in that which we cannot see, not that which we can. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you and yours.

    "For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it."
    (Romans 8:24-25)
    "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven."
    (2 Corinthians 4:17-5:2)
     
  4. You have to eventually come to the realization that all of this about God and Jesus is true.
    This happens differently for different people but, God calling you comes first.
    1 Thessalonians 5:24 ...The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.
    You seem to have come to the end of your rope, which is not uncommon and your are here reaching out. You must accept his calling to fulfill the promise I would read the Bible and understand this transformation may or may not happen over night but it will come; you being here is no mistake. Start with the New Testament and read the Old when it references it. As you expand your knowledge and interest you should read the entire Bible. When you are ready, it is as simple as asking Jesus to come into your life, you believing in what he did and him indwelling his spirit in you. Do something similar to Romans 10:8-13 and give him control of your life...you do this and everything will come in focus. God Bless
