I am bored with my life
I am 40 years old and have five children and a grandson whose ages range from 2 to 21. My husband is seven years younger than me. This is his first marriage, but my third marriage. I have been a Christian for four years. I feel like I am in a rut. I don’t know what comes next in life. I feel as if all I do is work, cook and sleep. Basically, that’s all I do for lack of time (or so it seems). I don’t have hobbies, don’t know what I’d like to do and have no girlfriends. We don’t have any Christian couple friends either. I just don’t know what to do with my life right now. I’m bored and busy at the same time. I don’t know who I am anymore and I don’t know how to find out. Any suggestions?
Advice: You’ve got to get out of yourself and the grind you are in. Are you serving the Lord in your church in some way? I suggest that you join the choir and the women’s Sunday school class and start getting acquainted with other women.
When you find someone you like, perhaps someone with children the age of yours, suggest that you go out for a picnic at a park where there’s a playground. Having social times together is a good way for people to get acquainted and make friends.
I also suggest that you rededicate your life to the Lord so that He can guide you into His wonderful way of life. Personally I have found that serving the Lord is an absolutely wonderful way of life!
In His love, Dr. Muriel
