Christian feeling lonely and empty

by Leah
(California)

I am very close to the Lord. He has communicated with me a lot and I have proof that he is there from time to time. I trust Him. I wish I could understand Him better. My husband is verbally, mentally, and emotionally abusive to me and has nothing to do with me at all and he says he hates kids now. I have always wanted a family. I am almost 30 years old. I feel so lonely and empty all the time. I get jealous when I see happy families. I am happy for them but it hurts me so bad. I don't understand why I am destined to live my whole life without a family. I was an only child with a working single parent - mother. I have never had one and I don't now and feel I will never have one. I have tried to change the way I think and not want these things anymore but it never works. I try to stay busy with distractions and church groups. I feel like my whole life is one big distraction from what I am lacking and my depression. I read the Bible and pray but I still feel so lonely and empty. I wish I could just be more thankful for what I have and not want more. Any words of encouragement would be nice. I know there is no solution for my problem. I just feel so miserable. Also, I would love to hear the 'I am not alone mp3' on this page: http://www.teen-beauty-tips.com/i-am-a-christian-but-still-feel-empty.html I right clicked and downloaded it and Windows Media player tried to open it and it can't because it said it has an extension that does not match the file format...whatever that means. Is it on youtube or anywhere online? Thanks.

Live Love Laugh Leah!!!

Leah, read your post and just want to remind you of God's love for you. Jeremiah 29:11, Ephesians 1, Psalm 139, John 3:16 just to name a few. Study the Word Leah, eat It; let His Word be your guiding Light. Our God is Sovereign, fully able to do just what He said. What promises lie within your heart, what is that desire that won't let you go? Seek His plan for your life, and by faith go for it. If Jesus Christ had not come, then we would be doomed to be prisoners of our past - but He did come. He did triumph. His Blood was shed and because of Him, we are a victoriously redeemed people!
Jesus loves you Leah - His great love purchased a brand new life. Believe it. Receive it. If you are "pregnant" with His promises, then my dear, give "birth" to His plan and purposes!
Blessings Leah - live honestly, love freely and laugh out loud! In Jesus Name. Amen!

God is always with you!

Leah, God loves you! He knows what is going on with your life and will never push you off or forget about you. God has a plan for you! Continue to pray and let out your true feelings and ask for his help. He loves you and created you for a purpose! You have a whole lot of life left to live and maybe children will be in it! Never lose hope, stay strong!

Prayer

Leah, one book other than the bible that was a huge help for me is called "Power of a Praying Wife" by Stormie Omartian. It goes through all the different issues in a husbands life that we need to pray for. It starts out with praying to change ourselves first. If you decide to get the book, I highly recommend it.

You have power with God!

I am sorry to hear your pain and admire how you have looked to God, and are tring to keep your head up in spite of all you are going through. Your blessing is you haven't had any children with an abusive husband, who would most likely be an abusive father. So, you only have yourself to worry about getting out of an abusive life, that would otherwise affect your child the rest of their life.
I know because this happened to my grandmother and my mother. My grandmother was able to become a powerful Christian later, but my mother can not get over the mental abuse of her and her siblings and more the physical abuse of her mother, and it has had a horrible grip and effect on her life. You are upset and depressed because you are in a abusive situation. Since you are involved church groups, have you been able to share this with anyone, or any other family or friends? My grandmother found a Christian friend at work that she talked to, and that helped her leave her abusive husband.
There are may support groups that help women in abusive relationships, please seek out help. God wants you to help yourself, he can give you the strength you need to stand up for yourself, and the love and peace you deserve. Please take care of yourself and respond to this website to let us know how you are.

God's love and strength be with you,

Just Wanted To Say Hi Leah!

Hi Leah, we haven't heard from you lately and just wanted to see how everything was going for you.

Because of His faithfulness and never-ending love, we just know you are blessed.

Sometimes Leah, it's just good to know someone's praying for you. You were on someone's heart - please don't take the responses lightly - all who commented meant it from the heart - we just simply want to encourage you - to let you know you're going to make it - it's going to be okay.

You were created for purpose - His plan and design called for your very existence. I would encourage you dear sister in Christ, spend more time in His presence, fellowship with mature saints and laugh! Find joy in the simplest things - blessings Leah - and again HI LEAH!!! (smile)

God has not forgotten you.

Dear Leah,
God loves you and has a great purpose for your life. God has not forgotten about you. You are special and precious to God; your name is engraved on the palm of His hands. (Isaiah 49:16).
Continue to delight yourself in God and He will give you the desires of your heart. Trust in the Lord, depend on Him; and He will take care of you.(Psalm 37:5).

No matter what you are going through right now, just continue to trust God. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not depend on your own understanding. Remember the Lords in all you do and He will give you success. (Proverbs 3:6). Always pray and never lose hope.

God will always give what is right to His people who cry out to Him day and night and he will not be slow to answer them.(Luke18) Continue to have faith and believe in God. At the right time, God will answer you and it will not be a day overdue.
God is with you and He will continue to bless you always.
