I Feel So Lonely

Home | Blog – New | I Feel So Lonely

Do you ever feel like everyone has someone except you?

While others spend time with someone special, maybe you feel lonely and left out. No boyfriend or girlfriend. Maybe your spouse doesn’t pay attention to you, or your loved ones live far away. You don’t have many friends, they’re too far away.

Do you think to yourself, “Will I be lonely forever?” or “Why am I always alone?” Maybe these feelings have been building for a long time and you’re thinking, “I feel so … lonely.”

Struggle with Loneliness?

Many people struggle with loneliness because they live by themselves or spend most of the day alone. Others are surrounded by people all day, yet feel the most lonely in crowds. In both cases, loneliness is caused by a lack of connection that comes through relationships.

We all want to love and be loved—and there’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, the ability to love comes from God Himself—a compassionate God who cares about you, knows your heart’s deep longing for love and can fulfill that desire. The Bible explains that God is love (1 John 4:16), and since He created you, God transfers that love to us. Put another way, “We love because He first loved us” (1 John 4:19).

But what if there’s no one in your life to give or receive the kind of love you’re longing for? What if the person you thought was the perfect match to take away your loneliness isn’t so perfect after all?

Finding someone to meet all our needs is futile because no human can fully satisfy our desire for a meaningful connection. Our desire is for something deeper—something that reaches our very souls.

Only the depth of God’s love can fill that empty space in our hearts. We were created to be in relationship with Him, and without a relationship, we’re incomplete and, ultimately, we’re lonely.

God loves us, and He has given us the capacity to love Him back. But that part is up to you. By Billy Graham

Are you ready to push your loneliness aside and experience the unconditional, unmatchable love of a perfect God who knows everything about you?

Start a lasting, fulfilling relationship with God today.
