Have you ever felt alone, afraid, discouraged, depressed? Then bookmark or pin this 1-minute devotion because it offers some real help! #BibleLoveNotes #Bible

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:

Rejected?
"Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me." Psalms 27:10

Isolated?
"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

Fearful?
"Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you." 1 Peter 5:7

Brokenhearted?
"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds." Psalm 147:3

God cares!

  1. I love this post! I’m a single woman living in NYC and during this pandemic I’ve become easily distracted and emotional, but no matter what I will continue to pray and trust Him because only God knows!

    1. Hi Miss Wendy

      Yes, I think many of us are easily distracted and more emotional during this pandemic because it has disrupted our normal schedules and activities and it is unpredictable at this point.

      I'm so glad you are trusting God during this time. I pray He will continue to comfort you.

  2. I can definitely relate to Miss Wendy; I'm a widower now, and I have noticed an increase in anxiety because even though it's been 2 years now... and with the added stress of this pandemic, I've become extremely lonely.
