Overcoming Loneliness & Understanding The Need For True Christian Fellowship

Click on blog photos for additional inspiration, sermons, and songs!


I know that as a Christian, my greatest struggle in my spiritual walk towards reaching the goals that God has planned for my life is simply, isolation and loneliness. The attached article about "Overcoming Loneliness" has outlined my circumstance of what often leads me back into "Egypt" where I am bound or held in sinful captivity or worse, looking backwards towards the place or circumstances in my life that God has delivered me from, such as Lot's wife fleeing Sodom and Gomorrah and being frozen in time and in place being prevented from advancing to the promised land. I have struggled alone and realize the impact of loneliness in my life causes me to open the door to return to the dead weight, and layers of situations which I've struggled to shed, yes even returning like the dog to his own vomit. Responding to my dilemma of loneliness I have sought fellowship with my peers in various churches, yet not one has provided the intimate faithful friendship beyond the moments we share in a service together to equip me with the support I need to overcome loneliness. Still I hold on to my faith in God that this too shall pass, a change is coming, and I am ready. Please read the article attached, and know that there are others who need Christian Brothers and Sisters to fellowship with, to call upon, to socialize with, to share with, and to lean on. This walk is very hard, but as Christians we can be the friend that makes a difference to someone else after shaking their hand in a church service and saying "God Bless You, see you next time!" This is what I know, this is what God knows, and now I expect a change because I have asked God to touch the hearts of my Brothers and Sisters in Christ to become the supportive friends and family He created us to be instead of just attending a Church service, departing and forgetting about each other. To God be the Glory!

Learning from the Book of Acts
Fellowship is essential to Christians,
that's why the devil wants to isolate you.

The Book of ACTS

Kerygma: Preaching/Message/Proclamation
Didache: Apostles Doctrine/Teachings/Instructions

In the Book of ACTS, the message through descriptive stories are 
Accompanied by Signs and Wonders.

The message proclaims the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.
As disciples we are to boldly lift up the name of JESUS and proclaim who He is.
