Dealing with Loneliness

When we're feeling lonely or isolated, these 7 things can help us refocus on things that will bring up joy and relief. #Loneliness #BibleLoveNotes

The Coronavirus is forcing many people to isolate themselves from others. It’s necessary and important, but it’s causing loneliness and boredom.

So what can we do? Even if you're not lonely, these things can help you make good use of your isolation, by focusing on God and others.

Some ideas:

1. Call, email, text, or write someone every day, especially someone who is lonely or elderly.(1)  

2. Set your alarm and pray every hour for a different need, especially for friends or relatives who have the virus or are at-risk.
See Set Your Mind or Set Your Alarm.

3. Journal an alphabetical prayer.
See Alphabetical Prayer.

4. Memorize Romans 8:35-38 to remind yourself that you’re never truly alone.
See God is Never on Vacation.

5. Do a word study on God’s love.
See Fun Word Study.

6. Try your hand at creative Bible journaling.
See Creative Bible Study.

7. Read more 1-Minute Bible Love Notes and recommend them to others. 😀
Pull up the Bible Love Notes pictorial archive that features more than 60 different categories of devotions. There’s an archive devoted to Encouragement, and even one devoted to Help During the Corona Virus.


Use your free time in positive, biblical ways!
