Dear God, I feel so alone

Read: Psalm 43:3-5, Psalm 68:5-6

Have you ever felt like no one understands you? 

Maybe you’ve been through something life-altering no one else you know has experienced. Maybe you have a dream your family and friends think is crazy. Maybe you’re at the end of yourself with a child or spouse, and you don’t know how to explain what you’re seeing any other way. Or maybe, you just feel different. No matter where you are, your style, your interests, and your mannerisms never seem to fit the occasion.

Once you’ve been there, you realize that feeling misunderstood can be as isolating as being truly alone.  

When we feel hopeless and depressed, our first instinct is often to push God away. But God can teach us the most when we lean into Him during difficult times. When loneliness compels us to give up, and we reach out to God instead, we find that our greatest companionship is with Him. 


Celebrate 

  • How has God been present in the past?
  • Take a moment to look at your current circumstances. How can you, like the psalmist, see God’s faithful care and leadership in your life today?


Anticipate 

  • Psalm 43:5 shows us that we should praise the Lord, even when we feel downcast and disturbed. What are you hoping for the future? What do today’s psalms say about God’s ability to accomplish what you are hoping for? 


Ask

  • On a scale of 1 to 10, how close do you feel to wanting to give up? Ask God to give you what you need to face today.  
  • Have you been looking to other people or other things to fix the loneliness you feel? It’s never too late to put your hope in God instead. Ask Him for forgiveness. 
  • Is there a specific situation or circumstance driving your isolation? Ask God to draw near and be your comforter. Spend time in the Bible to remember His truths for your life.
