Feeling Alone in the Pew

It’s Sunday morning and you are off to church. You arrive on time for the worship service and slip into the back. Then, there it is. The happy couple in front of you with two kids and a dog at home with a nice home and great jobs. Just what you wanted to see when you came to church today, something you don’t have. This scenario can often exacerbate feelings of loneliness in church.

Instantly, your morning focused on God turns into what you don’t have.

Does this describe you?

Experiencing bitterness or jealousy in the Church pew should never happen, especially when dealing with loneliness in church. Christ tells us in Matthew 28 that He will be with us until the end of time.

So how is it possible to feel so alone in God’s house? Emotions can run high with anyone, but for those experiencing the issue of being single and wanting to be married, the littlest thing such as this scenario can spiral emotions to a place of loneliness.

Jeremiah 29:11 tells us God knows the plan for our lives, so we need to build up trust in that promise that completes singles in Christ. Trusting is hard–it takes work and time. But trusting God with the small things makes it easier and easier to trust Him with the big things.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
– Proverbs 3:5-6

Remember, in God’s house you are not alone. Stay focused on giving Him all the glory and praise and trusts Him wholeheartedly with your life. Worship is a big part of your spiritual growth; make sure that time is focused on Him and not on you.
