The two steps to conquering loneliness are to know that God is with you and to share a connection with others.
Knowing that God is with you is the first step in conquering loneliness. Have you put your trust in Him?
You can give without loving, but you will never truly love without giving.
Healthy relationships don’t rely on emotions for motion. They understand that, as we walk in faith and obedience, our feelings will follow.
We get to choose the focus of our affections, what we allow in our hearts. Feelings change with whatever we let into our hearts.
These are the four rings on the target of a focused relationship. If they are missing, our relationships will never experience the kind of love and fulfillment God intended
Before giving up and walking away from a relationship, give God the opportunity to employ the wisdom of His Word in handling conflict.
Focus on Jesus. When you focus on Jesus to meet your deepest needs, it takes the pressure off the relationship with your spouse or others.
Is your heart opened or closed? It most likely depends on the relationship, doesn’t it? We can have an open heart toward one person while closing off our hearts to another. Marriage and family illustrate this concept well. A wife or husband may be totally open to a son or daughter while closing their heart to their mate.
God’s love is unlike the love that the world offers. When Paul described love as the most excellent way, he gave us specific characteristics of God’s love that sets it apart from any other love we have known. Each characteristic is an attribute of God Himself, for God is love.
