I am a Christian woman and I do not find very many men that I feel a connection to and have the same belief system. I am dating a man that fits this bill to but it is going so slow. I want more. I sometimes want a family relationship so bad it hurts. How do I get through this?
You get through this the same way you get through all things in life. Accept Jesus love for you. Know that He has a plan for you. He will never leave you nor forsake you. Trust that Gods plan will unfold itself in His timing. Concentrate on the good things He has given you. Be thankful.
Being single is not always so easy. God did say “it is not good for man to be alone” Genesis 2:18. Yet, before we can make a good spouse to someone else we have to be OK on our own. If we require someone else to make us happy or complete us we do not control our own joy. Joy comes from within. Grounding in joy starts with accepting Jesus as your savior. When you concentrate on His joy and His love no matter what the circumstances you can have inner peace. Life will dish out circumstances! Paul said,” I have learned to be content in whatever state I am in.”Philippians 4:11. There is a saying,” you are only lonely when you do not like who you are alone with.” When I start to feel loneliness creep in I pray and then I do something to take care of myself. I go far a walk, get a good work out, play with my dogs, ride my bicycle I do anything that can make me focus on how truly good my life is. Whatever you think about expands. If you think about how desperately you want a husband and how lonely you are then you are wasting your present moment. Love the things you have in your life right now. If you have a negative thought or a thought about something you cannot control intentionally change your thought. Call on Him He is with you 24/7. Single is not always easy, but if you can be happy single you will make a better mate in the long run.
1 John4:18 “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.”
