Words Of Encouragement For Anyone Experiencing Loneliness

Loneliness can come as a result of the loss of a close friendship, relocation to another city or country, dealing with an issue alone, and the list is endless.

Sometimes you lack someone to talk to about issues that are bothering you.

God’s plan was that we would come to him daily and commune with Him and pour out our secrets to him. 

In John 15:15, Jesus calls you his friend and you can talk to him like you do one of your friends.

As your friend, he will listen to you and respond with his love and kindness.

He will give you words of encouragement, healing, and strength. You can trust him with your heart. 

When God seems far, always remember he said he will never leave nor forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:6).

He is an ever present help in times of need and you can call upon him anytime you need company.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?

And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
10 Even there Your hand shall lead me,
And Your right hand shall hold me.

Even the night shall be light about me;

But the night shines as the day;
The darkness and the light are both alike to You.
