Advice for Singles Who Feel Lonely

Embrace Your Single Season

We're not to be pitied. If we feel sorry for ourselves, others will feel sorry for us. If we recognize that we have a unique opportunity and the advantages of being able to serve the church, and if we're filled with gratitude for this opportunity and season, then others will embrace that too.

Finding God in My Loneliness

Lydia Brownback

Lydia Brownback offers biblical encouragement for women to help them see how God can redeem seasons of loneliness and draw them to the only true and lasting remedy: union with Jesus.

What's important is our outlook and our attitude—we can approach singleness positively if we recognize that our marital status is in God's hands. He will change it when and if he chooses. We don't have to worry about the statistics, we don't have to worry about biological clocks—none of those things determine our life. It is God alone.

We are free to step out in our single state today, because it is completely in the Lord's hands.
