Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Beautiful Things That Fall Apart - #4119
Maybe you've experienced that kind of disappointment in your life - not with jewelry but with relationships, your job, your dream, your accomplishments, or even your marriage. It was beautiful for a while, but then it just fell apart. It's almost like many of the things we depend on for happiness and meaning turn out to be hollow inside.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Escape from Lonely Island - #4850
One way to make a lonely time a short time is to find someone who needs you; to reach out from your loneliness, even if you don't feel like it, to make a difference for someone else. At a time when loneliness leaves you thinking mostly about yourself, it's important to decide to look beyond yourself. Another antidote to loneliness is to expand your world, especially your circle of friendships. If you take the risks to reach out to more people, you can reduce your trips to Lonely Island.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Reality At Universal - #8068
Reality is that there are people who look like they’re all together on the outside, but behind their facade it just feels empty; might be a feeling you know. Now if it’s a life that matters you want, it’s worth asking the question: After all I’ve experienced, how come I’m so empty?

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Escaping the "Me" Monster - #4175
The "me" monster. That's the tendency to think about myself most of the time, and it's the main reason Pam was down so much of the time, and maybe you are. There's nothing like hurt and pain and pressure to turn us into self-focused people. Too often, life is about my needs, my issues, my problems, my agenda, my feelings, my load. But a life of self-focus or self-pity or self-centeredness is just not how we were wired to live, especially if we belong to Jesus Christ.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Homeless In Your Heart - #4184
Now, it's possible to have a place - maybe a beautiful place - to go home to every night and still know deep feelings of homelessness in your heart. Like you've never really found the emotional home, the spiritual home you've always wanted to experience.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Abandoned No More - #4194
There are a whole lot of folks who had a mother and father - but have felt orphaned, in a way, for much of their life; abandoned, left behind, misunderstood, left alone. Maybe you know the feeling.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Loneliest "Lonely" of All - #5091
It would be cheap for me to say, "I know how you feel." I probably don't. But I know someone who does - who really does. That would be Jesus. In fact, no one on earth has ever experienced the depth of loneliness He went through. And that's one of the reasons you can trust Him in a way that you can trust no one else in your life.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - One More Hill - #3829
You know, a lot of people live their whole lives that same way--thinking that what they're looking for is just over that next hill. The love, the peace, the fulfillment I'm looking for - it'll be in that next relationship...that next accomplishment...that next experience. But so far we've left behind us a trail of hills that were supposed to fill the hole in our heart and didn't. Some people trudge on all the way to that final hill called death - still looking, still not finding. Maybe for you, life has been a lot of climbing hills to disappointment and emptiness and loneliness.

Demystifying The Gift Of Singleness
"The gift of singleness" is a very misunderstood phrase. Some think it means that you'll never want to marry or have any sexual temptation. Others think the gift of singleness dooms you to a permanently lonely life. What's the real story?
