Everyone gave some great advice.
I guess the temptation was on diff levels. One was the desire to be included and be a part of the group. Then it became more of an ego thing where was like "really a girl would rather approach married men than to talk to a single guy whoís Christian". Even though, I know that there are Godly Women out there and the right woman will come along, it was still an ego bruise.
But as a Christian, we must keep our focus on Christ and his Word. Thank for your support guys n girls.
It is better to be without than to be with someone who isn't right for you. It's also better to be alone than to have to pretend to be someone you aren't to catch a man (or in your case, a woman).
I was at a Christian singles picnic yesteday, and was surprised to see that some of the people brought beer. What I find at these events, because they are targeted to my age group, is that I am usually the only one who has never been married and the only one without children. I don't know-I'm not sure it's God's plan for me to hook up with some guy who's been married 3 times before, either, nor for me to be the stepmother to 20 somethings . But I like going to the events, and talking with people about faith and service, without having to deal with all that flirting and pretending.
I watched both my mother and father pass away in the last year and I don't know if I could have dealt with it if it hadn't been for my awareness of God's loving presence.
I do understand, however, what he means when he speaks about being out with others and not being able to participate in some of there activities. What I realize when I start to feel this way is that those activities are what builds walls between me and God. Satan's menions use these feelings against me and to drive a wedge between myself and the Lord. Recognizing this goes along way to getting past those things.
