In the midst of our loneliness we often try to fill the desires of our hearts with the things of this world. But Jesus longs to fill our hearts with Himself during this season.
Even when you are feeling lonely, and feel as though you have no one, God is always with you. He thinks about you all the time. Do not give up on yourself, because God has not given up on you. It is easier to just abandon every relationship, because of all the past failed relationships. Doing this will only further discourage you and leave you feeling sorry for yourself. This is not what God wants for His daughters.
How can God help me when I am feeling lonely?
- Use this "alone time" to rediscover the beautiful unfaithfulness of Jesus.
- Reach out to others. When we take the focus off of ourselves and place them on others our feelings on loneliness seem to subside.
- Put yourself in places where you will be able to meet new people! Church is a great place to start if you have not done so.
