A move away from family, death of a loved one, sickness, a broken relationship…loneliness takes many forms.
It can leave us feeling rejected, isolated, and fearful.
When the Psalmist felt lonely, he knew where to take his anguish:
"Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. Relieve the troubles of my heart and free me from my anguish." Psalm 25:16-17
When we’re feeling lonely, we also should take our concerns to the Lord and find comfort in His Word:
"Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me." Proverbs 27:10
"I am convinced that neither death nor life … nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39
"Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you." 1 Peter 5:7
"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds." Psalm 147:3
