Hi Ashley i love your blog even though im single and not married i think your webite is full of wisdom about relatonships that i think wil be helpful to me in the future. Ilive in the UK im not sure whati can ask or not but i have dilemma that hpefully you could give mesome useful advice on.
Basically i find myself being conent with god alone and ten something will happen to remind e f my desires and goals that after six years of prayer is still unfulfilled and i find it sooo hard to deal with.
Ive tried renewin my mind to scriptue but its like evy where i go the title Marriage is there lol, and it is my desire to have a family one day soon (while i still can im 26) so ive well and truly it the midlife crisis as tey call it, o dear lol.
I just dont want to be single any more to be honest if i had christianfrieds it ouldnt be so bad but i dont even hve that i feel like god loves seeing me lonely or something the more i pray the more i feel cmpletely ignred i dont do well with the whole spiritual silence at all i did well forthree years then it actually sared to hurt that nothings hanged.
prayed and literally cried in rayer for 5 years= nothing.
1. No music grades still
2. might have failed my degree
3. Still sad about losing my dad
4. No boyfriend just past bad experiences with men
5. No christian friends (chrstains seem more close off han non christians towards me anyway)
I hope this is not to longfor you or depressing m just desperate to know where im going wrong ive tried christian event joined a freindly church but they seem to ony let you so close its lke they dot want you to be close frneds because thir happy and thier life is completed with thier own setof friends. What about the love of jesus eig displayed i thought i would experienc tha in church i thought i wouldhave a good group of loving encouraging friends but its the complete opposite.
They smile they comment on how they havent seen you when they see you lol, but when your actually gone they couldnt care less, no text, no call only the pators wife seems to care.
I give up. what do you think i should do as im really strtin not to care i just feel like giving up. i feel lie my life is soo dry and god is punushing me by letting me wait away all my late twentys until i have only memories of ”oh i was alone when i was twenty and unhappy.”
Im a christian and snce my dad died 2007 i have been uhappy with howmy life is sometimes i wish i wasnt here, i wish i had the guts to end it all i hate life soooo much i hate this place i dont want o be here an more if even God doesnt care abotu my happiness why should i i just want to die.
Rebecca, I’m thrilled that you enjoy the resources of our organization! That is always my prayer; that people find value, encouragement, and inspiration for their lives!
I know that we have emailed before about some of this stuff you’ve mentioned, and it’s clear that you are hurting. It’s hard when you feel like you’ve been seeking God and praying for His provisions for a long time. I promise you that, while it may not feel like it, God is listening and working on your behalf. One thing I have learned in my own relationship with Christ is that His ways are not my ways, and His thoughts are not my thoughts. And that’s a good thing because He knows so much more than me, and His ways and thoughts are so much better than my own. In every season, whether it be of abundance or drought, He will never leave you nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5). I don’t understand why our prayers aren’t always answered in a “timely” manner or ever why sometimes they seem to not be answered at all, but I assure you, that He loves you, cares about you, is NOT punishing you but is working on your behalf. Luke 11:13 tells us that He wants to give us good gifts! My encouragement to you would be to hold unswervingly to the hope you profess, for He who promised is faithful (Hebrews 10:23). God won’t fail you, just hold on and keep seeking Him!
Friendships can take a while to develop Rebecca. I have learned that myself having moved to 3 different corners of the US and starting over fresh each time. It’s challenging, but you have to keep asking God and keep looking. If the pastor’s wife cares, then cling to that because that is someone and something. I’m definitely concerned that you seem so depressed and mentioned wanting to end it all! You really need to speak with someone about this that is close by and can give you the much needed care and help you need! I would start with the pastor’s wife and communicate with her just how desperate you are; she should be able to help or get you the help you need. Please, make sure you do that for me since I am across the world and incapable of helping you more than via written correspondences.
I would leave you with a couple of verses to encourage you … Hebrews 12:1, Revelation 7:17, Matthew 6:26, 1 Peter 5:7, Romans 8:28, Luke 12: 6-7. You are loved by God, and your life is precious! He has a plan and a purpose for you, so don’t allow Satan to deceive you! I will be praying for you and ask that you please talk to your pastor’s wife about how depressed you are right now so she can help you through this!
