Today there is no point in calling a friend, or even going to a crowded restaurant or a movie theatre. Yes, I admit it. I am lonely. But none of those things will make me ‘not lonely.’ I’ll still feel lonely. I might fill my time but when l come home I will still be lonely.
Loneliness cannot be erased by people, food, drink, drugs, gambling or anything else you can think of. I am lonely for Ron and Ron is with God. Still, must I continue to feel this deep despair?
No. Instead, I told God how lonely I am and He reminded me that He understands.
Know, recognize, and understand therefore that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God, Who keeps covenant and steadfast love and mercy with those who love Him and keep His commandments, to a thousand generations, (Deuteronomy 7:9, AMP)
And He reminded me once more that when I am lonely, I can ask for His comfort and He will supply it. He will do the same for you.
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, NIV)
Prayer: Thank You God. Amen.
