“Are You ‘LONELY’? – 101” …Blog.
*** (Gen 2:18) And Jehovah God said; It is not good that the man should be ‘alone’. I will make a helper ‘suitable’ for him.
*** (Psalms 68:5-6) God, Who lives in his sacred Temple; cares for orphans and protects widows.
(Psalms 68:6) He gives the ‘lonely’ a home to live in; and leads prisoners out into happy freedom; but rebels will have to live in a desolate land.
*** (Hebrews 13:5) Keep your lives free from the love of money; and be content with what you have; for God has said, “I will never leave you; or abandon you.”
Married or Single… “Many are Lonely!” Have ‘You’ ever thought about this “Fact?” Many need constant “Validation from Others”… in order to be Happy! “Even while I was Famous… I was Lonely”… will be ‘Confessed by the Honest!’ Why would a ‘Married’ person; be ‘Lonely?’ May I simply suggest… it is part of our ‘Human’ makeup? It is part of our “Sin Nature”… passed down to us by “Adam & Eve.” ‘Things’ do not make one happy. What ‘You’ own… “Owns You!” People will always “Disappoint You”… and Yes; even your ‘Mate!’ So what is the Real Problem…? May I simply suggest that… “Correct Fellowship” with God the Father; will correct this? Did ‘You’ know that Christ Jesus was “Lonely?” Many times His human followers were no help to Him; even in the Garden; before His ‘Trial & Death!’ His ‘fellowship’ with God His Father… sustained Him: In ‘Each & Every’ Situation!
*** (1Corinthains 1:9-10) God is faithful; by Whom you were called; to the fellowship of His Son; Jesus Christ our Lord.
(1Cor 1:10) But I exhort you, brothers; by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; that you ‘all’ speak the same thing; and that there be ‘no’ divisions among you; but that you be perfectly joined together; –> in the same ‘mind’ and in the same ‘judgment’.
*** (2Corinthains 6:14) Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers; for what fellowship does righteousness have with lawlessness? And what partnership does light have; with darkness?
(2Co 6:15) And what agreement does Christ have; with Belial? Or what part does a believer have; with an unbeliever?
(2Co 6:16) And what agreement does a temple of God have; with idols? For you are the temple of the living God [Romans 8:9]; as God has said, “I will dwell in them and walk among them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.:
(2Co 6:17) Therefore come out from among them; and be separated; says the Lord; and ‘do not’ touch the unclean thing. And I will receive you
(2Co 6:18) and I will be a Father to you; and you shall be My sons and daughters; says the Lord Almighty.
*** (Matthew 26:39-to-43) And He [Jesus] went a little further and fell on His face; and prayed, saying, O My Father [Abba]; if it is possible; let this cup pass from Me. Yet ‘not’ as I will; but as ‘You’ will.
(Matt 26:40) And He [Jesus] came to the disciples and found them asleep. And He said to Peter, What! Could you not watch with Me one hour?
(Matt 26:41) Watch and pray that you enter not into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing; but the flesh is weak.
(Matt 26:42) He went away again the second time and prayed, saying; My Father, if this cup may not pass away from Me unless I drink it; Your will be done.
(Mat 26:43) And He came and found them asleep again; for their eyes were heavy.
*** (John 8:29-to-32) And He [God]; Who sent Me [Jesus]; is with Me. The Father has not left Me alone; for I ‘always’ do those things: which please Him.
(John 8:30) As He [Jesus] spoke these words; many believed upon Him.
(John 8:31) Then Jesus said to the Jews who believed on Him; If you continue in My Word, you are My disciples indeed.
(John 8:32) And you shall know the Truth; and the Truth: shall make you Free.

May I simply suggest… “Truth & Fellowship” with God…? Isn’t that what ‘sustained’ Christ Jesus during His lifetime? He was in life time of ‘Obedience’ to His Father: God! Just perhaps our “Loneliness” is simply caused by the “Lack Thereof”…? Our “Want for Things’ and then “Not” being able to have them… will cause ‘Loneness’. Our expectation of a ‘Mate or Friend’ that is ‘Not Fulfilled’; will also cause ‘Loneness’. Something as simple as your mate: ‘Not’ picking up their clothes, may cause a frustration that causes ‘Loneness’. Even that promotion, that was given to someone else… less deserving than ‘You’… may cause that ‘Loneness’. When ‘You’ know God’s Truth… in your heart… then that ‘Loneness’ will pass. Your Obedience to Him… whatever your situation; will give ‘You’…“His Peace!” Your full trust will be in Him… as “Only HE”… knows best for your Life!
*** (Hebrews 5:7-8-9) For Jesus, in the days of His flesh; when He had offered up prayers and supplications with strong cryings and tears; to Him [God]; Who was able to save Him from death; and was heard in that He feared,
(Heb 5:8) though being a Son; yet He learned “Obedience” by the things; which He ‘suffered’.
(Heb 5:9) And being perfected; He became the Author of eternal salvation; to all those; who ‘Obey’ Him,
*** (1Timothy 6:6-7-8) But godliness with contentment; is great gain.
(1Tim 6:7) For we brought nothing into the world; and it is clear: that we can carry nothing out.
(1Tim 6:8) But having food and clothing; we will be content.
*** (Job 2:7-to-10) And Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD Jehovah; and struck Job with sore boils; from the sole of his foot to the top of his head.
(Job 2:8) And he [Job] took a broken piece of pottery to scrape himself with. And he sat down among the ashes.
(Job 2:9) And his wife said to him, Do you still hold to your integrity? Curse God and die!
(Job 2:10) But he said to her, You speak as one of the foolish ones speak. What? Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In ‘all’ this Job did not sin: with his lips.
*** (Rom 8:35-to-39) Who [or What]; shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
(Rom 8:36) As it is written, "For Your sake we are killed all the day long. We are counted as sheep of slaughter."
(Rom 8:37) But in all these things we more than conquer through Him who loved us.
(Rom 8:38) For I [Paul] am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
(Rom 8:39) nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature; shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. [how about You?]
*** (1Thessalonians 5:18) In everything give thanks; for this is the “Will of God”; in Christ Jesus; concerning you.

*** (Micah 6:8) He [God] has shown you; O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you; but to do Justice; and to love Mercy; and to Walk Humbly; with your God?
Many will ‘Not’ recognize that Christ Jesus… “Called Us to Suffer!” We want a “Media Driven: ‘Fantasy’ Life”… as portrayed on “TV & Videos!” We are exposed to: “So Very Many ‘Media’ LIES”… that we ‘cannot’ discern the Truth. ‘Because’ we are “NOT Cognizant” of the Holy Word of GOD: we Often take the worlds point of reference! Did ‘You’ know that… ‘Because’ is used: “1138 times” in the Bible? Just perhaps if we Christians knew ‘MORE’ of God’s Holy Word… there would be less ‘loneness’ in our lives. Oh yes, I have been Single for over 10 years; and Christ Jesus has met my needs. He alone sustains those; that are ‘Truly His’… and “Trust Completely” in the “TRUTH” of His Holy Word! Singles, by ‘death or divorce’… have a special ‘paradigm’ of circumstances to work through. Remember He has promised “His Grace”… for ‘each & every’ situation!
*** (1Jn 5:19) We know that we are of God; and “ALL” the world; “Lies in Evil”.
*** (John 8:31-32) Then Jesus said to the Jews who believed on Him; If you continue in My Word; you are My disciples indeed.
(John 8:32) And you shall know the Truth; and the Truth: shall make you Free.
*** (Matthew 10:34-to-38) Do not think that I [Jesus] have come to bring peace on earth. I [Jesus] did Not come to send peace; but a Sword.
(Mat 10:35) For I [Jesus] have come to set a man against his father; and the daughter against her mother; and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.
(Mat 10:36) And a man's foes; shall be those of his own household.
(Mat 10:37) He who loves father or mother more than Me [Jesus]: is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me; is not worthy of Me.
(Mat 10:38) And he who does not take up his cross and follow Me; is not worthy of Me.
*** (Matthew 13:19) When anyone hears the Word of the kingdom; and does ‘Not’ understand it; then the wicked one [Satan] comes and catches away; that which was sown in his heart. This is the seed sown by the wayside.
*** (1Peter 2:18-to-21) Servants [Slaves], be ‘Subject’ to your masters with all fear; not only to those good and forbearing; but also to the perverse ones.
(1Pet 2:19) For this is a grace; if for conscience toward God anyone endures grief; suffering wrongfully.
(1Pet 2:20) For what glory is it if you patiently endure while sinning and being buffeted? But if you suffer while doing good; and patiently endure, this is a grace from God.
(1Pet 2:21) For you were not called to this? For Christ ‘also’ Suffered on our behalf; leaving us an ‘example’; that ‘You’ should follow His steps,
*** (Hebrews 4:13-to-16) Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight; but all things are naked and opened; to the eyes of Him [God];with whom we have to do.
(Heb 4:14) Since then we have a great High Priest who has passed into the heavens; Jesus the Son of God; let us hold fast our profession.
(Heb 4:15) For we do not have a high priest; Who cannot be touched with the feelings of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted just as we are; yet without sin.
(Heb 4:16) Therefore let us come boldly [Command in the Greek NT] to the throne of grace; that we may obtain “Mercy” and find “Grace” to help; in time of need.
