Do you ever feel lonely?
Recently, I was at an event full of people. Everyone else seemed talkative, but I just felt out of sorts. Someone had said something to me earlier that day that hurt my feelings and knocked me off-kilter.
I politely smiled my way through the evening and finally got to go home. As I crawled into bed I asked Jesus, “Why am I letting some thoughtless comment made by someone affect me like this?”
There was no deep explanation. No Bible verse popped into my head. Only the gentle reminder that Jesus loves me – insecurities and all.
Friends can’t make us feel accepted all the time. And having lots of people around us does not mean we won’t ever feel lonely.
So, I turn to Jesus. I draw close to Him so He can help me separate solid truth from shifting emotion.
