Everyone struggles with loneliness at some point. For some of you, it could be the loss of a loved one; a recent divorce; empty nest; recent move; or depression. There are so many factors that can cause us to feel isolated and alone. Sometimes, we can even be in a crowd and feel totally alone.
I want to share some scriptures with you. Focus on His word and know God understands loneliness. It is the very reason He promises to never leave us.

2 Timothy 4:16-17, “At my first defense, no one came to my support, but everyone deserted me. May it not be held against them. But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it. And I was delivered from the lion’s mouth.” (NIV)
Psalm 68:6, “God places the lonely in families; he sets the prisoners free and gives them joy.”
Know you have a Father in Heaven Who loves you and wants to be a part of your life. With God, we never have to be alone.
