Christian Singles: Lonliness
Help for believers dealing with and being lonely
Christian singles, to stay healthy mentally and physically you must stay involved with your church and church friends. It's at times like Christmas and when everyone else is partying in the holidays that Christiain singles can feel most vulnerable.
If you have the good fortune of being with wife of have a Christian girlfriend - don't forget to include your single Christian friends in activities and events. Often they won't feel like asking - especially if they are the far side of 30 as most of their friends will be married off and they won't want to 'be the odd one out' or 'spoil' the party atmaosphere - as if being single could do such a thing.
To avoid lonliness - avoid isolation. Now you must recognise the thing about a lonly person is that they are more often than not isolated and depressed and the last thing a depressed person wants to do is get involved - that's why Im not giving you a choice - GO AND GET INVOLVED - preferably in something that helps others. God gives (not exclusivley as some churches and preachers teach) to those that give!:)
Ask God to help you see where you can serve others - this is the best cure for lonliness I PROMISE - and when you do - the chances of you meeting new people is soooo much greater!:) Remember a man reaps what he sows - so sow into other peoples lives!
Invite your friends over to your house - cook them a meal - arrange an outing - do something you wouldnt normally to bless others and see the reward you get:)
If you really feel its time to settle down and get into a relationship - get your name down on the next church weekend away and do some networking with people in other churches. Join a Christian social group. Note there is no such thing as you finding the 'Right One' - you must be right yourself first - not perfect but sort yourself out and everything will flow from there. Work on improving your own characteristics and the way you react to things - be more round and less angular - ie more likeable.
Sometimes family can have a negative affect on a persons whole being - don't blame your family - you're responsible for yourself now whatever happened but if there's a lot of stress at home - keep your visits fairly short.
Remember that married people are often excellent matchmakers so hang out with couples as well as singles.
Ok - we wish you God's blessing on all your relationships.

Todays Great Inspirational Quote
"As everyone was praying for rain, the small boy reached up and tugged his father's shirt to ask, "Daddy, what is everyone doing?" The man explained that everyone was praying for rain and then went back to his prayer.
The boy looked around for a few more minutes and was puzzled. He tugged again on his dad's shirt and asked, "Daddy, if everyone is here to pray for rain, why didn't anyone bring an umbrella?"
