He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds – Psalm 147:3


Loneliness will make you invite the devil himself over for tea –Anonymous


Loneliness is defined as the state of being alone in solitary isolation or without companions. Let’s keep it real, we all go through those seasons when we feel lonely. And it’s ok but the key is to not live there. When we live in the state of loneliness we then start to do things out of desperation like jump into another relationship that God didn’t approve or have sex with someone we aren’t married to. In this blog I will give three ways to shake off loneliness in your life.

-Be a help to others in your Community 

You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love –Gal. 5:13

If you are lonely, learn to serve others. There is no better feeling than helping someone else.  If the task is small or large, the one you help will be greatly appreciative and you never know the impact you can have on that person life. When I was a single man, I spent large amounts of time helping my Brother painting his house. He never expected me to help but I knew I needed to do something that will take the focus off my season of loneliness.

-Get Involved in Ministry at Your Local Church

So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith –Gal. 6:10

Does your local Church have a Singles Ministry? Grief Recovery Classes? Financial Classes? These are excellent tools the Church offer for those who desire to be whole. This is a great time to learn and meet others who has the same goals as you. Take the time to become the best you possible. Position yourself to prepare for the future.

-Make Yourself Friendly

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity –Prov. 17:17

Some people make themselves lonely by always needing others and making everything about them. Live a selfless life and take time to listen to others.  My friendship value went up when I listened more and talked less. Make that person the center of attention. Learn to celebrate friends and family and sooner than later people will find you attractive when they need to vent or kick around ideas. What are your thoughts? Leave a comment below.
