Loneliness is one of the greatest problems people face today. It is a leading cause of suicide-that is now the third greatest killer of students in the United States. People feel various kinds of loneliness. One of the most common is the loneliness of solitude. Or there is the loneliness of suffering. Many people experience loneliness in society, or there is the loneliness of sorrow, guilt, and judgment.

All of us feel at times a loneliness for God. Someone has called it cosmic loneliness. We don’t know what it is. It makes us restless. You see, man was made for God; and without God, he is lonely. But Jesus is knocking at the door of our heart, saying, “I want to come in. Let me in.” He doesn’t push His way through that door. We have to open it and invite Him in; when we do, He comes in to live forever and we are never lonely again.

Listen to this Billy Graham message about how to cure loneliness forever.

    Many people struggle with loneliness. Sadly they don’t reach out to the only person who can change their situation. His name is Jesus Christ he awaits their request to come into their lives and remove that burden.

  4. Mark says:

    Our souls are restless without God. Jesus gives our lives security, warmth and joy. We are unable to find true meaning apart from Him. When He walks with us, we find joy and peace in Him.

  5. Gerry says:

    No one wants to be lonely. So if you find yourself lonely , pray that God will lead you to new friendships with other believers. You may be surprised that others are experiencing the same feelings. Then you can thank God together for a prayer answered.
