Oh wow, I'm sorry you had an abusive life, that is heartbreaking! And I can't imagine how horrible it was for you to be rejected and judged like that by a church. Thank you for your advice and encouragement, it means a lot. I do have to say that I am saved, and I don't believe I am trying to take the glory of God away from my future marriage. In fact, I've done several things God has told me to do, in connection with that. I deleted all the dating apps I was on, and have since not joined any new ones because He told me that that wasn't the way I was going to meet my spouse (so at least I have some clue and guidance! lol Yay!) so I'm guessing I'm going to meet "the one" (for lack of a better word lol) the traditional, face to face way. :) 

Yes, it is quite heartbreaking, my testimony book has made everyone shed some tears reading it so far. A 500 page book about my life and testimony, and this is just a minor but important part of it. But for all the sufferings in my life, I see a reason to praise and thank God for the outcomes. But thank you, and also, you are welcome, and I hope you will have a great marriage that God has planned if He does. 

 

Yahweh bless

Shalom PurpleOrchid,

No there is nothing wrong with feeling like that, it's totally natural.  

But be encouraged sister.  Yahweh knows your heart and your complaint. He may well have a man currently being prepared for you and making his way across your path. 

I know before I met my wife I genuinely thought and made preparations in my heart to remain single and alone.  However, the timing of our meet was perfect (in hindsight).  I had things to learn and so did she and, when the moment was just right, we met and thought it was just a friendship at first. But it quickly developed into a confidence of "you're special".

Be encouraged sister and be at peace.  As best as you can, try to be patient.  Trust in Him and His Goodness. Have faith in His perfect Will and His loving heart towards us. and remain prayerful on the subject  If you focus your heart and time on the kingdom of God, everything else will be added unto you.

Love & Shalom

I truly appreciate your message, and it encouraged me and I could feel your good heart in the words. I love hearing about how people met their spouse, so thank you for sharing that with me! 

Love & Shalom to you too

I completely understand your loneliness and yearning for love. I'm actually in the same boat!! I understand that embracing our singleness is powerful and allows us to get closer to God, but sometimes I crave the touch and love of a significant other. And maybe that's just my flesh, but when I look around and see friends happily inlove, getting engaged, and even my past lovers, all in new relationships, I begin to feel like I'm the only one who doesn't have someone. Then I begin to doubt myself and my worth, but nonetheless, we'll BOTH get through this!!!

Hi everyone,

I don't want to go into a long thing here and seem like I'm complaining,  and because honestly I'm tired of crying about this. And I'm also tired of people saying to be happy in your singleness (truth be told it's incredibly annoying sometimes). I am happy, but I'm lonely, and longing to meet that guy who I'll marry someday. 

I am positive that you can find that person, if you apply yourself and don't expect it to happen overnight.

Thank you! I know it won't happen overnight, because I've been waiting a LONG time for him lol. Long time.

      I have this silly concern and constant worry about my decisions displeasing God. So many of my goals and things I want to do aren’t necessarily Christian based. I like doing things such as watching certain shows that have cussing and sexual content in them....but they are so entertaining....I’ve been told that even the little things I like to do, such as working out, is based on vanity. But I really just love working out because it makes me feel complete. I’m even a little afraid of getting in a relationship because of the fear of feeling something sinful such as lust or immoral thoughts. Back when I was younger, I didn’t mind these things much. But now, I’m at an age where I should know better. I don’t want to live this way anymore. I need to find an inner peace. God Bless.

      My friends, I need your help. I'll do my best not to make this too long, although it is a bit of a story.
      Back in October, I saw a need in my church choir and reached out to a guy that was relatively new and was essentially getting shunned by most of the other men because he has tattoos and his ears are pierced. I actually feel really bad because I waited for a few months after I felt the initial tug and I wonder if I would be struggling so much if I hadn't. Anyway...we clicked almost immediately and soon we were talking practically every day. We are very similar and deal with a lot of the same struggles, such as depression. We've opened up to one another on a level that I've only ever replicated with my two best friends of 13+ years and we can talk for hours without it feeling like any time has passed. He has quickly become a close friend, one that I greatly cherish. 
      My issue is this: I have developed romantic feelings for him, feelings that I'm pretty sure he doesn't return. He is in a relationship at this point and it's a relationship he said he has prayed for, despite that this girl has caused him a lot of heartache. It's hard for me to watch since I don't feel she is good for him and obviously I feel that I am. It's also hard because he is one that will ghost out on the people around him when he gets wrapped up in his own affairs. He doesn't mean to, he just has had really bad examples of friendship and I'm the first one that actually fights to keep him grounded. 
      So how do I maintain this friendship in a Godly way without letting my own bias get in the way and how do I move on from my feelings? If you need me to answer any further questions that might help give better advice, please feel free to ask. I have probably forgotten something in my attempt to keep this short.

      Those still dealing with the pain of church hurt and healing and separation from those who have justified it with sayings like "eh they were learning"

      If you divorce or get married twice is that a sin?
