I attribute my loneliness to 'being alone' I am very sociable and talk every easily to people, but so many people don't respond or don't know how to respond to my reaching out to them. I don't know why. but I know I need people who are like me, super friendly, open, funny, goofy and not ashamed of my behavior. not at all.
I have the flu this week. My mind was full of thought. As I nursed myself. The last 72 hours were full of regret and loneliness. I have made some bad choices. But got is faithful. Thank you kristi for understanding a need for not so you divorced mom. Sometimes I am very sad. Only the lord knows and he is a present help
I feel more alone in my marriage than I did when I was single. We have been married for 10 yrs, we have had no intimacy for at LEAST 5 yrs. We have talked about this SO MANY times... my needs vs his needs. I told him before we wed what my physical / emotional needs are. He just doesn't seem to care. He is 61 and I am 57. I have prayed and continue to pray to God to help me with this....as I know He will not leave me nor forsake me.... and I try very hard to just focus on Him and what I need to do for His Sake, but even when I see a movie / commercial that shows a loving couple, I cry. Please pray for us. Thank you.
I listened to Elizabeth Eliot on the radio in the 90's and she would talk about the need of older women (upper 40's and up) to mentor younger women. I wonder if that is not what is missing in our Christian culture today - think of how it would ease so much lonliness in our wise and experienced baby boomer generation to be able to help those in their 20's-early 40's as they struggle with so many things that we have been through and could help them with. Someone needs to start this ministry and get it going like the men's movement in the 80's.
I too was grateful to hear the segment on loneliness. It was good to see captured within the scope of God's Word. I've lived alone for some time now and loneliness almost looms over me like a heavy cloud. I try to get out as much as I can but it's not always possible. The "cloud" seems heavier during the early morning hours when I can't sleep. It's not bad all the time but there are those times when I miss "holding" and being held. My tear ducts are set on high simmer and feel like they over flow at just about any time. One big problem is that crying doesn't rank up there with "Rain drops on roses and whiskers on kittens". So I avoid it as much as possible.
I have suffered from fear of loneliness since being a young girl. Because of that I have settled for less and have never enjoyed a positive loving relationships. I feel blessed to have heard this segment on loneliness with Kristi. The Bible says in Timothy that perfect love casteth out fear. I believe that also means casting out loneliness. Thank you CBN 700 club for what you do in spreading God's word.
I was so greatful to hear your your segment about loneliness, I hope that you will provide more on this subject. I have been alone for 20+ years now and I find that it is getting harder to bear every year. I have prayed that God would ease my loneliness but so far I am still alone and now that our daughter is grown and has move away I find myself even lonelier.
I am a widow for the past 12+ years. This can be a lonely time of year. I ask God for a Priscilla/Aquilla Relationship. Perhaps none of us know the plans God has for us or the work he has planned in advance for each one. Most of all I want to be following God's plan for the rest of my life. Thank you for the spriptures and teaching.
We all get lonely. Especially around Christmas time for some reason. Thank you for reminding us of God's word on the subject. Jesus promised to never leave us alone, and to that he would send the Holy Spirit, or the Comforter as he called it. Thank you for sharing this! A voice of hope is an excellent series and I hope that you do more in the future.
I was so blessed hearing about loneliness, I can't wait to hear more, I have suffered with loneliness and still do. My daughter is suffering with severe loneliness and it has caused her to drink and smoke, I remember when she was so on fire for God, I know that she feels God has not answered her prayers and feels he has left her. Please pray for her, Her name is Jewelry. Thank You. Linda
