Hey Jason, I have a question for you. My wife and I have been together for 7 years, and married for 3. We had moved out of my house and moved in with my parents because I lost my job due to job cuts. My mom and her have never really gotten along that great, but they tolerated each other more or less. About 3 weeks ago, my wife tells me she wants to separate, and moved out about a week ago. We have a 2 and half year old son, and we share him equally. We are both believers, and I never thought our relationship would ever come to this. I am like you in a sense, that God has turned something bad into something good. My relationship with Him has grown stronger, and because of my conviction, led me to be baptised in water. Now here is my issue, i am extremely lonely. I know I have my Lord to lean on, but I miss the companionship and togetherness of a family. I have all the 5 feelings you have on here. At times I want to get back, but then I don’t. I am angry, and then I’m happy. But lately, lonliness has filled my heart. How do i cope?

Brother I am sorry but the one thing about lonelines is I struggle with it immensely. In fact, I am currently struggling and I thought I would come to my website to see if I could change the way I was thinking and feeling and there was your question… ironic. Nevertheless, I can share what I have learned, loneliness will come and go, there will be good days and bad, and it helps to find something to do that preoccupies our minds. I tend to avoid places where couples hang out, however that can prove difficult sometimes. The more we think on loneliness the more lonely we get so we must try to think of other things… that is what I am doing right now. I am listening to the rain pitter patter on the ground while listening to music. I pray that God will touch both our hearts right and get us through this time of need and loneliness that He will fill us with the love we need and the faith that we are going to be okay. God bless you Jay.
