Six Ways To Overcome Loneliness In Being Single

Six Ways To Overcome Loneliness In Being Single

Being single does not really mean being lonely. As a Christian there are ways to overcome loneliness in being single. Here are six ways I do to overcome loneliness in being single.

1) Accept your state of singleness as a calling from the Lord to make yourself available for other greater ministry opportunities. Being single gives you much freedom to be engaged in many purposeful activities and programs in the church. When you are married of course your freedom is limited. You have to take care of a husband and a family and look after their needs.

2) Spend more time in prayer and study of the Word. Since you are single, your time is not that restricted as a married person’s time is. Give more time to nurture and develop your time with the Lord. Develop your prayer life while you are single and enjoy the fellowship of your Heavenly Father as Jesus when He was on earth had spent much time in prayer and enjoy His fellowship with the Heavenly Father.

3) Develop and nurture as many friendships as you can both from the same sex and the opposite sex. Never stop meeting new people and develop friendships with them. As a single person you have more time to explore friendships with people. Try to spend time with these friends and enjoy their company. Visit them if they are of the same sex and minister to them even through prayer. Give them some words of encouragement. Jesus while here on earth develop many friendships . He visited them and minister to them. He has developed friendships with Lazarus, Martha and Mary.

4) Continue to develop and improve yourself. Never stop finding new ways to be a better person than before, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, socially and physically. Invest money on good books that will further develop your personality and character. Try to do also some physical workout to make you fit and healthy. Try to attend some conferences and seminar that will strengthen you spiritually. Try also to make you attractive physically by investing on products that will enhance your physical looks. Maintain a healthy diet to keep you healthy. Invest more on fruits and vegetables.

5) Find your satisfaction and contentment in the Lord. Let Christ be your First Love and the center of your life. Let Him be your ultimate delight. Never let anybody take away your focus on Him. Rid your life from all “ idols of the heart “ may it be a person or a thing. Commit your singleness to the Lord, surrender the desires of your heart to Christ. Surrender to Him your feelings and desire for any person. Surrender to Him your desire to be married. Let His perfect will be done in your life. Trust completely His wisdom and plan for your life.

6) Seek to serve and glorify Christ in your life. Seek not for your happiness but for the glory of God. Seek to fulfill God’s will and purposes for your life. Seek to fulfill the Great Commission of Christ. Let Christ;s Great Commission be the greatest cause in your life. Commit to reach out for the lost. Commit to serve in an evangelistic outreach in your church.

Hi JessHUbpages I am glad to hear from you again. Thank you for dropping by. Maintaining idols in the heart may it be a person or a thing will make our lives miserable. To be happy Christ must remain our First Love and center of our life. As a single person, one must find his highest joy in Christ. Remain blessed always. Best regards.

Awesome encouragement for those of us that are Blessed to be able to give all of our time and attention to OUR KING.

It sure is easier to focus on relationship with HIM when there is no one depending on you for dinner or to do their laundry or to have to remember to put the seat down....: )

You've made some true statements, and perhaps hard for some to fully accept because of still learning to do those helpful things you have mentioned. Your advice is good for all of us, single or married as well.

Blessings your way, I am sure they will hover over you.
