I am Muslim and much interested in Jesus (P.B.U.H). I have decided to immigrate to Montreal and have no friends or relatives there. I would like to find some friends there with strong belief in Jesus and hope that he will help me in this regard. I thought that I could make close relationship with churches there but I received no reply from them! Will Jesus really help me?!

One with God is majority
The worst kind of loneliness is loneliness amidst crowd. It means u can still be lonely even if people are much with you....for they may not understand your feelings,but there is a friend who is closer than a brother-Jesus,if you have him, you have the God almighty Creator.He is always with u because he is EMMANUEL...,God with us. CONGRATULATIONS!

anger wreaks havoc
wow! I had found a very excellent website that talks about christianity, love, christ and God. I love it. However, as a christian I cant grow underneath the sun due to the fact I still carry wrath toward my mother. Who had emotionally and mentally abused me. I Turn to Christ because none of the people I had know and understood my emotion. The scarce and bruises that was left in my heart is so immense that I pray to God that it will be heal. Yet His answer was it will be heal. Just be patient. as long as Christ is my guide.

sometimes
its not that i dont know God is here, looking out for me and stuff. sometimes i just feel so overwhelmed with everything else that i dont give him the one on one time he needs with me...i am scared to go to church...not because i am scared of religion..i dont like the judging, condemning, hypocricy and socialite attitudes that are now associated with them..at times i wonder if its ok to just sit home and worship with Joel Osteen and pray and thats it...i love God and i know he has saved me many times....he's called to me when i was near my end...but i begged him...'who would care for the child he gave me...who would do it like i do...and he saved me...he saved me for two reasons...1.. because he loves me...2. because he knows i love my daughter to my soul....but sometimes i feel like praying and telling others about him is not enough....but its the fact that i am not satisfied that bothers me..is this a sign for me to do more...chandge my lifestyle and do more...i wonder sometimes...i know my life would not be possible without Him...i just want to know  how i can do more to let God know i love him and he is my one and only creator and savior....

There is a public cemetery near your home.There exists lonely
 an impessive tombstone carved a cross of Jesus and a traditional family crest surrounded by Buddhist tombstones.And on the other place in Matsue there is a little and alone tombstone of an infant of an Anglican missionary.But his seeds have become bigger and large.

The reason God made human beings is because He wants to be with them. The reason that there is this deep secret loneliness inside of every one of us is that we have been separated from Him. And there is something else you should know. You don`t have to wait. You don`t have to wait anymore. Jesus` final words to His friends as He was leaving the earth were,
  • I am with you always, even to the ends of the earth. ''Matthew 28:20''

    Wherever you go,whatever you do.

    An Example of God`s Care for the Lonely
    I know of a woman named Carol who was a bit of a loner. She didn`t have very many friends. To top it off, two of her closest friends committed suicide, each within a year of the other. She was devastated by this whole thing, so she started to pray, and said, "Jesus, if you`re real, well then, would you please use me to help prevent this from happening to someone else." A few weeks later Carol was making a routine phone call and she ended up getting a wrong number; some woman on the East Coast. But instead of just hanging up like you normally do with a wrong number, for some reason she started talking to the woman on the East Coast. They ended up having a great conversation. At the end the woman from the East Coast said, "Hey, can we do this again?" Carol said, "Why not?" So they ended up talking every week. They`d talk about their jobs, they`d talk about their hobbies, and eventually Carol started talking about her faith in Jesus.

    This went on for a year. Finally, Carol had a business trip to the East Coast, so she decided that she`d go see this woman who by now had become a friend. So they got together for dinner, and in the course of their conversation this woman from the East Coast told Carol that the night when Carol had dialed her number by mistake, she had decided to kill herself. She`d driven to a bridge, she was going to jump off of it, but she ran out of gas ''so that was God''. She ended up having to go home instead, a little bit disappointed. That`s when Carol dialed her number by mistake. Their weekly conversations gave this woman something to look forward to week after week. As a result, she started to get curious about Jesus and decided to check him out. She started going to church, started praying, began to feel like Jesus was a real person not just some concept, and he cared about what was going on in her life. She started to make some friends at the church she was going to, and all of that made her feel like she wasn`t alone, that the God of the Universe loved her, that she had a reason for being on this planet, and she began to have joy for the first time in years. All of that from one wrong number.

    Get Close to Jesus
    Jesus says, "I am the vine, you are the branches. Stick to me and you will have joy." In order to have joy we need to cling to Jesus through prayer, worship, scripture, obedience, because Jesus is God in the flesh. Getting to know him is getting to know God, and God is the most joy filled being in the universe. Just look at creation -- it`s joyful. As John Ortberg puts it, In Genesis 1 when God is creating, it doesn`t say, "In the beginning it was 9 o`clock so God got up, went to work, filled out a requisition to create light, and said, `That`ll do.`" It doesn`t say when it came time to create animals that God created a cat, and said, "well, that`s good enough, I don`t want to make any more animals. Besides, I`m not so crazy about the cat anyway.`" That`s not what it says. It says, God created all kinds of things and it was good. Birds, fish, mountains, rivers, aardvarks, all of this is a reflection of God`s joy and his delight. And just like hanging out with a fun person helps us to have more fun, if we get close to Jesus his joy will rub off on us.

    Jesus' Open Invitation to Friendship
    "Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me." ( Revelation 3:20)

    Jesus Defines the Greatest Friendship
    "My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you." ( John 15:12-15)
