Loneliness

Do you ever just feel alone? 

A room full of people talking, laughing , and smiling. You are in the same room ,but it feels as if you are not meant to be there. You try to force a smile on your face to make everything seem just right. On the inside you are wanting to cry out for help. 

You are longing to be notice by someone. Wanting to be loved and adored by at least one person. 

I know this feeling ,because I felt the same way. When I was a teenager I was shy and not socialable. At the same time I wanted friends and someone I could talk to. Instead of making friends got I bullied for my beliefs in God and my weight.

Jesus was the only person I could talk to. I prayed for hours everyday. I pleaded with Him to somehow make me happy. Other days I prayed that He would just take me out of this world. 

One day God put a simple thought into my mind…

“Am I enough?” 

Through all the hurt and pain I go through is He enough? 

We say we live for Him , but do we really mean it? 

Now Looking back I realize God kept me away from things. I wasn’t like other teenagers. I wasn’t at parties. I wasn’t on a date. I was in bedroom praying and seeking Him. I was putting God first.  

Maybe God has you all to Himself right now for a reason. Is it possible He is trying to keep you away from certain things or people? 

Just know that you are never alone. He is listening. 

Your God, the Lord himself, will be with you. He will not fail you or abandon you. 

(Deuteronomy 31:6)

When they call to me, I will answer them; when they are in trouble, I will be with them.

(Psalm 91:15)

  1. Amen, I really relate to this 🙂 I was that teenager who stood out, and was misunderstood from so many. I had a lot of toxic friendships. God used everything to help me. He was my Friend then, and He’s my Friend. Father, Shepherd, Protecter, and Teacher. All in One. He is enough 🙂 thanks for sharing!

  2. I had instances like this before, but when I read the scripture Hebrews 13:5 , it really shows that God will never leave us nor forsake us! He’s always there with us, no matter what! God bless and thank u for sharing!

  3. Wonderful blog post, really encouraging. I’m sure so many people can relate to that sense – you expressed it really well – of feeling alone, even when surrounded by people. I’ve often felt like that (yep, guys experience that too, if we’re honest!).

    God bless and have a great day. Steven 🙏🏻
