“I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” John 14:18
The late, great Christian psychiatrist from Switzerland, Dr. Paul Tournier, wrote that loneliness is the most devastating malady of this age.
What is loneliness?
Many confuse it with being alone. But you can be alone and not be lonely. Your loneliness does not have to overwhelm you.
After all is said and done, truly your only solace is found in Jesus.
Why? Because He understands. John 1:10-11 tells us that the world neither received Him, nor knew Him. In many respects He lived a life of loneliness.
“But,” you may say, “I need somebody real.” Jesus is real. He is closer to you than anyone else can be or ever will be.
What a friend we have in Jesus! We will never be separated from Him!
Are you lonely? Chances are someone you know is, too. Why don’t you give that person a call right now and be a friend to someone in need.
