    I'm here to meet fellow Christians and to receive and give biblical advice. I'm going through a difficult time in life- just not cut out to live alone/divorced.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    HI
    Hi Ben welcome aboard I pray you find the peace that passes understanding that Jesus promises to give those who are following Him. The tough situation you are in will not be pain free but God's peace is greater than the strain. This is the power to find direction in life and walk in His will. Trust your future to the LORD and develop Godly character and start to serve in any way you can. This is the path to being prepared for a fruitful life. God will then bring all the other things you need into your life as well.

    Thank you. I've never had a family, even since birth. Lost the one I had as an adult as soon as it was given to me, just over a whimsical decision of her's to leave. My family is the thing I want most in life, of course. I have kids now. My days of being focused on ministry are long passed. Confusing.

    Hello Ben, and welcome to CF.

    Prayers for you. I can relate ... in some ways. Family was always the biggest thing to me, and I was born into a large one. They've almost all passed (while young even) and I miss having them. I had a wonderful family through marriage and lost them to divorce. I am remarried but my husband's family would rather he married someone from their country, so they aren't "family" to me.

    I do have - glory to God - a wonderful Church family now that in many ways are closer than other kinds of family. Those bonds have been taken seriously through history back to the beginning by the Greeks (my community is mostly Greek).

    I pray that in whatever way ... God will comfort you. Sometimes He becomes our "family" and often He forms bonds between people that give us that family we need. From the beginning, God said it wasn't good for us to be alone. Love for one another is good for the soul, and He wants what is good for us.

    May you be blessed. And in the meantime, I hope you can also find good fellowship here on CF. :) I've made true friends here.

    God be with you.

    You will get a lot of advice from married people here, but I am also divorced.

    If you need help in any way, or a ear to hear, let me know.

    Welcome, Ben! I will pray to the One who RECONCILED us to Himself, that He would work in & through you to be the reconciler in your family. He can give you wisdom, love, forgiveness, humility & power to be like Christ as He relates to His bride & body. It will not be easy but remember:

    *You do have a Father, who loves You & desires the best for you & your family, who works out all things FOR GOOD to those who are called according to His purpose--to conform us to the image of Christ, to be like His Son. Pruning & discipline will occur & can be painful. Trials will come & can try your faith but God desires the 'preciousness' of your faith to be of far more valuable than silver or gold in His eyes.

    *You do have a Brother & a Friend who died for you & Who is with you always.

    *You do have another Comforter, Who will lead & guide you into all the truth & Who will empower you to do God's will & produce His fruit, as you yield to Him & His leading & guidance. He has also baptized you into a BODY, the body of Christ & there are many members on here that can provide support & accountability.

    Be humble & submit to the Lord. Let Him open the eyes of your heart & seek Him with all your heart. May His love, grace & mercy sustain you in these difficult days.

    Hi Ben, welcome to the forum. :wave:

    Life is difficult, and I pray that you will trust in the Lord, for Him to lead you through.

    I hope you will find a place of belonging, and make some friends along the way to share nuggets and life experiences.

    Blessings to you! :)
