I remember a time in my life when I was surrounded by people, but I was still so lonely. I had three children, a husband, and lots of friends—but I often felt so alone. Why???? Well, I was trying to use all those relationships to fill the one relationship I needed most—with God. What’s crazy, is that instead of seeking God—I walked away from my marriage—believing that was my biggest problem.

God was so merciful and gracious to come after me!

After I left, and I was truly alone (I had my kids half the time), God was able to show me that it was HIM who was missing from my life. He showed me—He is good. And when I finally saw HIM for who He is—that is, the best love I could ever know—then I began to passionately pursue Him. WOW! What a difference it has made in my life. NOW—there is NO relationship I desire now MORE than I desire God!

Being alone brought me to a place where I never have to be alone again.

If you feel alone, ask yourself whether you’ve ever experienced a sustained sense of God’s presence. If not, take the time to really get to know God. To engage in the world’s cures for loneliness, will only begin yet another cycle of emotionally crushing and self-destructive behavior. Allow God to open His windows of heaven and show you that no one has EVER been as good to you as He has. Think about it—has anyone ever demonstrated more love for you?

The journey to build a close relationship with God is just that—a journey. It begins with salvation. Then, you must grow. You must feed off his Word, talk with Him, fellowship with believers, and exercise your faith in obedience to His Word and His Spirit. It’s the most exciting journey you’ll ever take—and you will NEVER be lonely!

God is never lonely—and when we’re with Him—we aren’t either.

“Neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans‬ ‭8:38-39‬)
