Please agree with me that the Lord will show me what to do about where I sit in church. I’m single and I go alone, but I have been sitting alone in various churches most all of my life, and I’m really tired of it. I have friends at this church but they don’t come regularly. I am interested in one of these friends, and he does come pretty regularly. He says hello and talks with me a little when I see him but then he stays out in the lobby chatting with people until after the service starts and then goes in and sits with an elderly woman he knows, he never sits with or near me. I would like to ask if I could sit near him and this lady, but I don’t want it to look like I’m trying to be near him or chase him. Or he might connect me with this lady and then he’ll go sit somewhere else. We have known each other several years and have a steady e-mail relationship outside of church and we see each other at a monthly potluck and weekly Bible study, so we are very close friends. I guess he doesn’t sit with me to keep anyone from thinking we’re together or something. But it hurts me being ignored and sitting alone. I’m not sure what to do. It’s hard enough that I have to keep my feelings for him a secret, but to be alone every Sunday is double heartache. I just never know what to do. I’m praying for a mate, and I see absolutely nothing moving in that area of my life. Please pray the Lord will either open this man’s heart toward me or bring someone else to me soon. I’ve been alone way way too long.
