I Feel So Lonely

Do you ever feel like everyone has someone except you? While others spend time with someone special, maybe you feel lonely and left out. No boyfriend or girlfriend. Maybe your spouse doesn’t pay attention to you, or your loved ones live far away. You don’t have many friends, they’re too far away.

Do you think to yourself, “Will I be lonely forever?” or “Why am I always alone?” Maybe these feelings have been building for a long time and you’re thinking, “I feel so … lonely.”

Many people struggle with loneliness because they live by themselves or spend most of the day alone. Others are surrounded by people all day, yet feel the most lonely in crowds. In both cases, loneliness is caused by a lack of connection that comes through relationships.

We all want to love and be loved—and there’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, the ability to love comes from God Himself—a compassionate God who cares about you, knows your heart’s deep longing for love and can fulfill that desire. The Bible explains that God is love (1 John 4:16), and since He created you, God transfers that love to us. Put another way, “We love because He first loved us” (1 John 4:19).

But what if there’s no one in your life to give or receive the kind of love you’re longing for? What if the person you thought was the perfect match to take away your loneliness isn’t so perfect after all?

Finding someone to meet all our needs is futile because no human can fully satisfy our desire for a meaningful connection. Our desire is for something deeper—something that reaches our very souls.

Only the depth of God’s love can fill that empty space in our hearts. We were created to be in relationship with Him, and without a relationship, we’re incomplete and, ultimately, we’re lonely.

God loves us, and He has given us the capacity to love Him back. But that part is up to you.

Are you ready to push your loneliness aside and experience the unconditional, unmatchable love of a perfect God who knows everything about you?

Start a lasting, fulfilling relationship with God today.

Step 1 – God’s Purpose: Peace and Life

God loves you and wants you to experience peace and eternal life.

The Bible says:

“We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Romans 5:1

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”
John 3:16

“I [Jesus] have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
John 10:10

What keeps us from having the life God planned for us?

Step 2 – The Problem: Our Separation from God

God created us in His image. He gave us a will and the freedom of choice; we choose to disobey Him and go our own way—which is called sin. This separates us from God.

The Bible says:

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
Romans 3:23

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 6:23

Our choice to sin separates us from God. People have tried many ways to bridge this gap between themselves and God.

The Bible says:

“There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.”
Proverbs 14:12

“But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.”
Isaiah 59:2

No bridge reaches God… except one.

Step 3 – God’s Bridge: The Cross

Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose from the grave. When He did He paid the penalty for our sin and bridged the gap between us and God.

The Bible says:

“For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus.”
1 Timothy 2:5

“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.”
1 Peter 3:18

God has provided the only way back to Him. You must make a choice.

Step 4 – Our Response: Receive Christ

We must trust and receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

The Bible says:

“Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.”
John 1:12

“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
Romans 10:9

Which side are you on? The side with Christ or without Him?

Here is how you can accept Christ into your life:

"Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen."
