The Bible says in Genesis 18:14 Is there anything too had to me? At the appointed time I will return and you shall have a son (husband etc.). Seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness and whatever u need will be additional. He setteth the solidary in families Ps. 68:6. My sister commit thy way unto the Lord trust also in him and he shall bring it to pass.

i am a 41 year old single woman who has never been married or even proposed to and i know what you are going through. i attend church every sunday and i am involved in two bible studies and go to a singles group for christians and have a good time to take my mind off of the loneliness. my suggestion is to get into the word and lay all this before the lord. its not easy i know but thats what i do.

Bonna, you are just doing great! Keep it up sister! God Bless You! Jane.... do not ever jump to marriage because your age is already "out of the calendar". Please consider, Sister, decisions based in loneliness is very dangerous. Our hearts and desires can lure us to do "foolish things". Marriage is not the antidote for loneliness. I have a friend who is married but very lonely. A friend told me that the happiest woman is not the married one. The loneliest woman is the married one.

Dear Jane: I have been single since 1979 and have rarely felt lonely. When I do, Jesus is more than able to fill the lonely spots. Being alone and lonely are two different situations. It you are wanting a "family", first belong to the family of God at a Bible believing church, demonstrating the love and peace of Christ within you. Seek Him first and ALL else will be given to you, as the Lord sees fit. It's what He wants for us that matters. Blessings!!

Fasting and prayer is awesome,but you also need to beleave that what you want will happen,in the lords time,not yours. faith of the mustard seed,through faith we can move a mountian.God hears you,be patient,(enduring without complaint)God knows all,seek the kingdom first,and all shall be added unto you.I am also single

I have listened to the gossips as well as to the Lord.
Unless you are married, there is greater virtue, greater love & admiration for you if you remain childless.
1 Corinthians 7:34
The unmarried woman cares about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit.
35: And this I say for your own profit, not that I may put a leash on you, but for what is proper and that you may serve the Lord without distraction.

i'm in the same boat you are. i try not to think about it, but sometimes it gets rough especially around holidays and seeing family pictures of other people. i just keep occupied with other things. It may happen, and it may not, just live single a day at a time.

Forgive me, but are you asking for advice on dealing with bachelor blues? Or on our main two weapons against temptation: prayer and fasting?
