15 Bible Verses On Loneliness
Heartbreak

You will not be the first nor the last person to experience an incredible wave of loneliness.

There is no age or gender that limits you to not feeling alone, and some people still feel this way even when they’re surrounded by family and friends.

Feeling misunderstood and alone is probably the worst form of loneliness in the world.

Imagine yourself in a room full of the people you absolutely adore.

You are in a room where your favorite music playing in the background.

If you're hungry, there's even some of your favorite drinks/food. But what if none of this can fulfill the emptiness you’ve been experiencing?

The Bible doesn’t speak directly about loneliness, however, there are a lot of scriptures that we can relate to feeling this way!

That is my favorite thing about this Holy book; you have everything you’re looking for even without realizing at first.

One thing you shouldn't do during these times is to fill your emptiness with unnecessary worldly possessions, and even people.

These things can cause even more chaos than we know, and it would not benefit our mind in the slightest.

With that being said, do not spend your Friday night binge drinking or phoning your booty-call to get a quick fix.

Neither of the two will benefit the longevity of your life.

Here are 15 Bible verses on loneliness to help you pull through.

1. Kiss your worries goodbye.

“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.” — 2 Corinthians 4:17

And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,

Even there Your hand shall lead me,

And Your right hand shall hold me." — Psalm 139:7-10

5. Your presence is fullness of joy!
