Prayer Journey —Lonely But Not Alone

Disappointment fills me this morning. Expectations unfulfilled. People who I thought cared, show no concern. I cannot fathom why. I feel isolated, alone. Yet God gently whispers, “I am here.”

Thank you dear God that you never leave us. Even though we may question your purposes, you don’t desert us. All praise to you Lord that you are faithful and trustworthy. You keep your promises. You are our stronghold, a mighty fortress in a crumbling world.

“Your promises have been thoroughly tested, and your servant loves them. Though I am lowly and despised, I do not forget your precepts. Your righteousness is everlasting and your law is true.” – Psalm 119:140-142 (NIV)

  1. Cindy, thank you for sharing your heart. It’s actually a struggle I’ve been facing as well, with people. I feel very alone in my affliction but Jesus is my comfort and He says He won’t ever leave or forsake me. I sometimes forget to dwell on this truth though. Blessings and may God continue to help you every moment of each day. 🤗

  2. I’m sorry you’re feeling this way, Cindy. Do you have someone you can talk to professionally to help sort through the feelings? That could help.

    1. God has blessed me with a group of people that provide support. It is a good reminder that we need to be part of a community of believers that can lift us up in prayer and offer support.

      1. I respect that. There are also a lot of people trying to pray away physiological and psychological issues. We need to smart and know when we need more than prayer, that’s why God made the brain such a powerful and intricate muscle. Praying that this is just a spiritual thing and not more. You seemed really happy a few weeks ago and now are talking of loneliness so it caught my attention. Maybe I missed a post that explained it but it seemed like a sudden turn so it raises flags in my mental health advocate brain.

        1. I appreciate your concern. It is so true that we need to recognize when we need more than just prayer support. I have tried to share from my heart on this blog — insight on scripture as well as joys and struggles. I have tried to make my posts more about God than me so I don’t usually talk specifically about what is going on in my life. At times you’ll see posts reflect my struggle with depression and my wrestling with God. Through it all my faith in God has deepened and become more real. I can’t minimize that the struggle is real, but God is a constant. His love and grace is deeper than any of our struggles. I am so blessed to have a Christian therapist who is able to couple spiritual as well as physiological and psychological insight to bring healing. I am so blessed to have a core group of people who care for me and journey with me. Thank you for your concern and for being a mental health advocate. Blessings to you.

          1. Thanks for sharing this Cindy. I am happy to know you’re working with someone, as that is what I detecting: depression. (I am NOT a doctor.) I couldn’t find your email so I’m sorry if I made you feel u comfortable at all. You have a great blog which is why I follow it. I love your posts and that is why this one following the others that were celebratory about the new job caught my attention. Bless you and I’m thankful you’re working with someone and are surrounded by people who love and support you!

  3. I am SO glad that we are not alone! No matter how dark and bleak our days, Jesus’s light pierces the darkness. As we pierced Jesus with our sin, His death, resurrection and ascension brings us new life. Keep pressing on, you are NOT alone!
