Why is finding and keeping new friends so hard? I recently moved to Colorado with my husband and we’re looking for a new church (that’s a whole nother prayer request!!) and the few friends that I have made aren’t Christian, aren’t very reliable and I wouldn’t really consider them “lifetime friends”. They’re just also new transplants so we sort of “needed” each other at the same time but now that we’ve all gotten to know the area, that commonality is over.
I feel like being only 23 I should have friends and making friends shouldn’t a problem but I don’t even know where to meet friends! How do you make a friend? “Hi, want to be friends?” Is there a Tinder for friendship? I don’t even know!!
I know the Lord has great timing and maybe this is a lesson in patience, or relying on Him or trusting his timing. And I know that I’ll find someone to hang out with, it’s just hard. Being a girl is hard, friendships can be so hard. Being married, young and childless is such a small niche of people that it’s hard to find friends that are in similar places in life as I am.
Lord, grant me guidance and peace as I continue searching for friendship. And extra peace as I am spending every moment of my time with my spouse whom I love very much but whom I see way way way way way too much.
Thanks, y’all. (Also this is my first time posting! I hope I did okay!)
