Your problem could be either spiritual or emotional

prayer will take care of the case satan is trying to frustrate you with feeling so lonely.

on the emotional side, bible says before you can have friends, you must be friendly.

so you will have to give a helping hand to others... this way you will make friends in the process and the emotional state of loneliness will reduces...what do you say? do you show interest in your neighbours and work mates? do you at least greet and say hello regularly or do you always expect others to always make the first move?

Wow----Christian by name but not by action. Don't let any of these so called followers of Christ convince you that it's you/your not right in your walk. Do more than pray. Put action to your words. And no sometimes Jesus ain't enuff--the flesh wants another human's touch. Embrace your feelings and move out into action. Gods plan is not lonliness for you--God is just. Lonliness is not. Good luck.

Well, you shouldn't be. Does not mean you won't have bouts of lonliness. If you have a problem in this area try spending more time with God. Assuming ofcourse, you are truly saved.>>>I really do not know how so many people get along these days without God. Yet so many are, so they think.

You need to be taught how to enjoy Jesus. You must be a baby Christian. For starters. Make friends with a nice mature Christian at your church. Tell him/her what you have said on this blog. They may offer some suggestions. Be open to this person. Learn to read your bible,daily. Follow what it says in the bible. This is God's way of talking and communing with you. Be creative when it comes to praying and worshipping God. Listen to music in your home(Christian/gospel)Dance to the music.
---Robyn on 10/9/07

Cont: When you dance to the music. Really dance and let Go. God is watching you dance for Him. This should make you feel great.Just knowing that God love you should make you feel happy. You really need a good christian friend,too. That is a big help.Plan a day to just spend time with God.Talking to Him(prayer) singing,worshipping and praising Him. You will be surprised how He will respond to you. Blessings

terra, everyones is different,some live too much by their emotions,and others seem to have none.its hard too say why you are sooo lonely without knowing you,and even more important without you knowing yourself.
---tom2 on 10/9/07

Oh sister, my heart is with you right now. I know how you feel. Keep the faith, I know it's hard when you feel this way. I am feeling the same way; waiting for God to come, to answer, to apeace. I'll pray for you.
---Bea on 3/15/07

Deb== Good point. God can keep you so busy[fruitful] And at the same time give you everything you need. Company, yes. He can make you happy and it has nothing to do with what you have or don't have.I Hope that I can practice what I preach on that one.
---catherine on 3/4/07

Loneliness is human. Even some married people feel lonely. It is ok. God can fill those needs and also keep us active with things. In my life, I have found that loneliness is a possitive tool to remind me to tell Jesus everything. I desire someone too. He knows what we need before we ask. He Will answer your heart's cry. In faith claim His promises.
---Deb on 3/3/07

3. Many times to apostles who were saved. What Rhonda and many others have said is true. You are only showing that you are human and have human impules, just like everyone. Just because you are in despair does not mean you are failing as a Christian, but it is when we do go through trials that God builds our faith more then ever. Many times through good times we forget about Him. Don't ever think God does not love you. He will present His answer to and you will give Him all the glory, that is a promise.
---Lisas on 3/3/07

Terra, I have spoken more then anything on a Christian still having the capacity to fail many times, and you are the reason why I do it. It is hard even as a Christian to hold on to your faith, because in real life, you are going through such a hard time, and you cannot see this love of Christ really sorrounding you. People that are able to coup with this problem speak only because of what they can do. How can we give thanks in everything?
---Lisas on 3/3/07

2. Only you know what you feel. Just because you are a Christian does not mean you will always be able to defeat certain problems, as other might, it only shows that you are still human, living in this flesh that still want its needs. Everything about Christ is spiritual and many times we forget that what He does in the Spirit really becomes reality. That is why Jesus always told the true believers, "believe in Me" or "believe in what I do" He wasn't speaking to unbelievers.
---Lisas on 3/3/07

This is just my opinion, but if you are unmarried I think loniness is a natural impulse telling you that it may be time to start praying to God concerning a spouse. He did say it isn't good that man be alone, and even after God made Adam and Adam was complete in God, God still gave Adam a mate. So being lonely can be an impulse similar to having hunger pains when in need of food. But be prayerful and ask God about it.
---Rhonda on 3/2/07

Carla. That's a positive and sane answer. Thanks.
---Ed on 2/13/07

Loneliness comes in different packages as one matures in life and in God you learn to lean on the promises of God and get on with life or that loneliness can set deep in the soul and drive you to behave irrationally. You can determine whether you love God regardless of being lonely but God loving you is unquestionable so get to know him and the more you get to know him, is the more you'll forget about self and see the bigger picture.
---Carla5754 on 2/13/07

Are you active in your church, and community, do you have children? Being involved in kids sports is a good way to meet others.
Church, and community outings are often enjoyable too. Especially since churches often visit with one another.
You don't say if you're married or single, but I'd like to encourage you, remain prayerful, whatever your needs are, God know's and He will see you through.
God Bless

Dear Terra,
I believe in God, have felt his great Love, and everything that goes with it. But i, have felt great lonliness too, and i am sure loneliness, to one degree or another, is universal. How lonely Jesus was on the Cross. And think of Job, who God loved, and yet allowed him to crumble into dire poverty and physical suffering. Job was rejected by those around him, and lived day to day in tears. And yet God loved him and showered him with blessings after this period of suffering. God Bless.
---Ed on 2/12/07

I can only quote scripture,God said ,its not good for man to be alone, so he made eve.woman was made for man,and God gave her to adam.I think God knows better than us.problem is our flesh gets in the way.
---tom2 on 2/11/07

Give God your heart and make Him #1 in your life. Make Him your everything. Then you will NOT be lonely.
---Leslie on 2/11/07

God has given us free will. Its a matter of choice. Jesus is the source of our strength. the joy of the Lord is our strength. when we possess the fruit of the spirit which is in Galatians 5. Love,longsuffering, peace, joy, then there is no room for loneliness. Read the bible and meditate on it day and night. There you find the promises of the Lord that see how special we are. Eph.1:4; 3:613, jer.29:11, Psalm 8:4; Psalm 1:1-6 etc.

---carol on 2/9/07

Don't let some of these responses make you feel like you are not right with God. Gods prophets were some of the loneliest people on earth and they were very close to God. Getting closer to God won't take away loneliness of human companionship.
---buttons on 2/9/07

terra, God cares about you very much. Tell Him you are lonely and He will reach out to you and send you a friend. One day my friends forgot about coming by for me to go out, and I threw myself on the floor and cried my heart out and said, "God I'm so very lonely, please God help me, I don't want to be this lonely." And 2 months later I met my husband. Cry out to Father God, for He hears the cries of the righteous and He answers them. Write to me here donna6598. I would like to be your friend.

If you are true christian, get close to God. I CAN PROMISE you, He will keep you from being lonly. Now you have bouts of loneliess, do like I do. Ask God to take it away and He will. BUT it requires something from you.===COMMITMENT.
---catherine on 2/7/07

For God so loves me...

That statement sounds as if you are mocking Jesus' words in unbelief, maybe that has something to do with your problem?

If you really loved God you wouldn't have a jeannie in a bottle view of him expecting him to solve all your problems with the snap of your finger.

When we get saved our problems don't always go away, but have new meaning and purpose. If you are willing to listen he'll show you all about your loneliness problem and help you to what you lack.
---Pharisee on 2/7/07

grace3869, and Jack, thank you ...,
So many Christain have a fulfilled walk with the Lord, but are lonely in other areas. God understands our need for companionship, and never intended us to look to "Him" to fulfill those needs.
Being lonely doesn't necessarily mean you have no family, or friends, but that there is an unfulfilled area in your life, despite that.
It is very important that we begin to understand that, and not be made to feel guilty when we as Christians are lonely, etc.
---lynet on 2/7/07

When you find that God is all you have, you'll find that God is all you need. When friends are few, find a quiet place to go and share your heart with God. Tell Him how you feel, how your day went, Then sing a song to Him. He loves to hear you singing to Him. Soon, you'll find that when you're worshipping God, the feeling of loneliness disappears because He is our Joy, He is our Strength, He is our Peace, our best friend. He will bring friends to you that will bless you and uplift and encourage you.

Getting into some activities were you will meet people helps. And then be friendly, helpful, and giving. You will be surprised at how many people will come into your life.

I too, share a deep seated loneliness. I don't have many friends, well, hardly any and the few I have do not have an active role in my life. But I believe aloneness has a divine purpose, although I'd rather have a host of friends to instant message, to share my deepest feelings with and to maybe take trips with, I will continue to accept what God allows. Whoever you are, if you need a friend, there is one at the end of the E-mail address. David
---David on 2/7/07

Mother Teresa said that loneliness was the greatest poverty. God loves you, now how are you showing that you know this? Love is not to be absorbed but shared. Find a way to give your love and or talents to others and it will come back to you many times over. God Bless.
---lorra8574 on 2/6/07

God is not upset with you because of what you feel.

He Himself said at the creation of mankind that we were meant for companionship that He knew that He Himself could no satisfy.

In the meantime, what are you doing to overcome your loneliness?

We are lonely because God is not tangible. He can fill us with love and hope and faith. But he can't hug us when we cry ourselves to sleep. He can't kiss away the tears. We all know God should be enough, but knowing that and missing human contact make it a struggle. Reach out to someone, email me if you want. Friendships ease the lonliness
---grace3869 on 2/6/07

Have you accepting Christ and the love of God? If you can say, YES to that question, then you would not feel lonely. Nor should you think of yourself as being alone, even if you happen to be physical alone. Because the Holy Spirit now dwells within you and always will.
