July 20 – Lonliness

Psychologist Dr. James Dobson, says, “Loneliness is not only an isolation, but an insulation. Perhaps because of abuse, misunderstanding and hurt, we withdraw from people and though we hide behind a cheerful smile, we are really asking someone to understand, someone to heal our hurts.” The feeling of loneliness is common to the human race. King David, in one of his Psalms, expressed the experience of many, when he wrote “I was overcome by trouble and sorrow.” Jesus Himself was once described as “a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.” John Peterson’s song says, “No one understands like Jesus, He’s a friend beyond compare; Meet Him at the throne of mercy, He is waiting for you there. No one understands like Jesus, When the days are dark and grim; No one is so near, so dear as Jesus, Cast your every care on Him.”
