God is close to the broken hearted we are told (Ps 34). And both Isaiah 61 and 147 tell that God heals the broken hearted. That is very encouraging. For at times, the sting of loneliness is almost too great to bare. But it is the intimacy and trust in God that brings me through such times. The stark emptiness of the lack of companionship is horrible. But all the while God is there. He is good and faithful. He does not reject me. He loves me with an everlasting love.
The loneliness is not all the time. It just comes periodically. Be still, oh my soul, and wait upon the Lord.
