Prayer Requests!

Hey guys,

I wanted to let you know of a couple of prayer requests that I had. I personally have been praying about these, but I know that the more people I have praying with me, the better it is!

  • Please pray that I find a roommate. I'm still really needing someone to live with me and help share my living expenses. It would just make things a lot easier for me! I would be able to save a lot more, pay off more debt, and allow me to finally get a new car!

  • Pray that I am able to find and make friends with young, single, girls my own age. As embarrasing as it is to admit, I really don't have a lot of friends. (That actually sounds worse than it is)! I have amazing co-workers who I love working with every single day. I wouldn't trade them for anything! However, it's not the same as having your best girl friend that you can go do girl stuff with and hang out with on the weekend. Most of my teaching team is married, with families or husbands, and they have their own lives. I do have my best friends, Jacque and Jason here, and they're more like family. Most of the time we hang out on weekends, but when they're busy, I don't have any other friends to hang out with, or even call up. I don't want this to sound like I'm having a pity party for myself, because I'm TOTALLY not! I am a very independent woman and I've liked living by myself. Sometimes it is nice to just hang out and relax at my house during the weekend and recharge alone. However, sometimes I do want to go out, and I don't want to do it alone. I have been going to my Sunday school class and getting involved in church, but I just don't seem to be making any friends. In my ABF, everyone has been really nice, but it's like they already have their friends or know people...and I don't. This past Sunday I just felt soooo awkward and a room filled with people. I just wonder when am I not always going to feel so alone.

I know that NOTHING is impossible with God and I know He has already heard my cries. Please pray that I will continue to trust Him and continue to surrender my life daily to Him. Thanks guys! Love ya'll!

Oh sweetie, I will pray! I know how lonely it is when you move and don't know anyone! I pray that good friends come along soon! :)

You can always come hang out with me in Arkansas!

I know exactly what you mean. Even though I'm married, I feel like I'm single because Will is constantly studying and isn't home much. I'll pray for you if you pray for me! If only we were in the same place!!

ps-isn't sad how when you meet girls that you think are cool you're like "hmm new friend prospect!!" and then you find out they really already have their own friends/lives. ok maybe that's just me

I'm with ya on the friends your own age thing. I live in Coleman, TX where 70 percent of the population is 65 years old or older! I love and cherish the friends I do have here, but I too miss having a "best friend" to just be silly and hang out with! Love you girl!

You know, I think just about everyone feels in the same boat about the friends thing. I've moved around so much in my life, that I've never really had a "best friend". It does seem like everyone has their own life and group of friends and isn't interested in including a new person into the mix. It sucks, and I try my best to remember that when I meet new people, especially those that are new to the area.

I have a few "mom friends" here, but really only one that I'd call up and to do something on our own, and she's better friends with someone else, actually. So...
