How to Deal with Loneliness?

How to Deal with Loneliness

Are you always feeling lonely? Do you think that you are left alone? You are not alone in undergoing such a feeling of loneliness. Everyone in this world would have faced loneliness at some point or other in their lives. Even people who have a lot of friends and relatives around to care and love them, have found themselves lonely. We need to understand that Loneliness can not be only due to physical separation. It can also be as a result of being emotionally isolated from others even when there is someone around.

No big accomplishments in this world or keeping ourselves busy all the time can take away this feeling of loneliness from us. Sometimes, it might seem like we can chase off loneliness by helping ourselves out engaging in various activities and by involving people. But at the end of the day, we find ourselves in the same position again. God never intended man to be alone and this can be clearly seen right from the time when God created the heavens and earth. In fact, it is the very reason God created human beings as Male and Female. Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” (Genesis 2:18)

God is the One who created the Universe and everything including us. He alone can be a true and faithful companion to us. He alone can take away loneliness from our lives. But the thing that separates us from God is our sins. Due to our disobedience, we sinned, got separated from God and gave way to all the issues and problems characteristic of the fallen world. The loneliness we experience today is also a result of our fallen nature. The feeling of loneliness can only be removed by God, because He is the One who can always be beside us, wherever we are, and with whoever we are. He alone can be a true and faithful companion for us. 

As God is righteous and perfect, we cannot connect with Him on our own because of our sins. But He has made a way for us to receive forgiveness through His Son Jesus Christ. Being fully God and fully Human, He is able to relate to our emotions and feelings. In order to restore our lost relationship with God the Father, He became the Mediator. When we were not able to make atonement for our sins, He made the atonement for our sins by dying on the cross. “For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” (2 Corinthians 5:21) Jesus paid the price for our sins on our behalf and satisfied the righteous requirements of God’s Holy law. By repenting and trusting in Him, We can now experience God’s forgiveness and companionship in our lives. Do you want to feel His companionship in your life?

Are you willing to repent and believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour?
