In my loneliness, my God draws near.

“Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? [Why do I feel such loneliness?]
I will put my hope in God! I will praise Him again — my Savior and my God!” ~ Psalm 42:5, NLT

I can never escape from Your Spirit! I can never get away from Your presence!
If I go up to heaven, You are there; if I go down to the grave, You are there.
If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans,
even there Your hand will guide me, and Your strength will support me.” ~ Psalm 139:7-10, NLT

And He said, ‘My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.’” ~ Exodus 33:14, NKJV

God Draws Near in Our Loneliness

Lord, You are my faithful companion. You promised to never leave me nor forsake me. Even so, some days loneliness overwhelms me and steals my joy.

On those days, Lord, will You whisper to my heart that You are near? Will You remind me that I am Your child and I am loved with an everlasting love?

I believe loneliness is born of sadness; it’s a deep ache of the heart that overshadows the soul and drowns out the light of joy. Am I right, Lord? Is it deep-seated sadness that creates loneliness of heart?

Fill my lonely places with Your precious Spirit, Lord. Fill me to overflowing.

You are my joy, Lord. In Your presence is joy unspeakable. I know this to be true. The joy I find in You gives me strength.

Fill my lonely places with Your precious Spirit, Lord. Fill me to overflowing.

Let me feel the touch of Your hand grasping mine as we walk together on this journey of faith.

I know You are with me and I am forever grateful.

Open the Eyes of My Heart to See You, Lord

On those days that loneliness slips out of the shadows and settles on me, will You open the eyes of my heart to see You there in my midst? Will you strengthen me to resist the loneliness and focus on the truth that You are with me?

You are a good and faithful God. I trust You with all my heart. Fill me to overflowing with the knowledge of Your abiding Presence. I love how You love me, Lord.

In Jesus’s Name I pray,

Amen — let it be so
