    New Community Design

    Thinking about doing a refresh design for Talk Jesus community here, possibly using a different software platform as well to replace the current. It'll still remain a "forum" software nonetheless. Please vote at this poll and share your feedback.

    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.

  1. DON’T RUSH INTO THIS RELATIONSHIP (2)

    ‘No one who drinks the water I give will ever be thirsty again…’

    John 4:14


    We all want to be loved and appreciated for who we are. And when it doesn’t happen on our timetable, it’s tempting to rush into another relationship hoping it’ll make everything better.

    One author writes: ‘There’s no Prince Charming to sweep you off your feet and make you happy with yourself. Even when the first part of the story seems to go well, Sleeping Beauty wakes up to discover her prince is just a common frog…You can’t expect a person to give you what only your heavenly Father can provide.

    Mere mortals, even with good intentions, can never come close. When you pin all your hopes and dreams on someone else you’re bound to be disappointed…When you sell your soul in an attempt to attain the unattainable…the cost is high and the potential for peril is steep. Don’t let obsessive desire lead you down a path of despair…obsession is powerful.

    It fuels fantasies and drives you to reckless behaviour…You won’t find love till you love and respect yourself enough to stop looking for someone or something outside yourself to give you worth.’

    One day Jesus met a woman who’d been married five times and was pursuing yet another relationship. Recognising that her need was not for another man, but a relationship with God, He said, ‘No one who drinks the water I give will ever be thirsty again’ (vv. 13-14 CEV).

    Jesus saw beyond her sin to her real need, and restored her sense of self-worth. Bottom line: only the water Jesus gives will quench your soul’s thirst.
