Enduring Loneliness

By J. Steven Lang -- One TV talk show host claims that loneliness is the great problem in our society -- not poverty, not homelessness, not drugs, not crime, but just plain loneliness, that achy feeling of not being connected closely to someone. For the lonely person the Bible holds promises of the deepest and richest kind of fellowship -- fellowship with God.

Turn to me and have mercy on me, for I am alone and in deep distress.

May integrity and honesty protect me, for I put my hope in you.

Psalm 25:16, 21

As for me, I am poor and needy, but the Lord is thinking about me right now. You are my helper and my savior. Do not delay, O my God.

Psalm 40:17

Sing praises to God and to his name! Sing loud praises to him who rides the clouds. His name is the LORD -- rejoice in his presence!

Father to the fatherless, defender of widows -- this is God, whose dwelling is holy. God places the lonely in families; he sets the prisoners free and gives them joy.

Psalm 68:4-6

I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.

2 Corinthians 6:18
