LONELINESS

A man who has friends must himself be friendly, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24 (NKJV)

Christians become mired in the murky waters of loneliness for many reasons—an extended illness, a divorce, an empty nest, the death of a genuine friend. The starting place to lift loneliness’s enveloping emotional fog is to build intimacy with Jesus as our Friend.

Fellowship with Jesus is sweet friendship with your most loyal Friend. It is coming to Christ with honesty and sincerity. You need not hide your feelings. He understands them and does not condemn you. You can draw as close to Christ as you desire.

Jesus stands ready now to embrace you with the love that died for you and now lives within you. He is no fair-weather friend. He will stand with you and comfort you in your darkest hour.
