When you’re lonely and it feels like the whole world is falling on you
You just reach out, you just cry out to Jesus
There are those times, those times when it’s like everything is going directly against us. We all have those times where it feels like the weight of the world is closing in on us. We’ve got something pulling us one way, but then we also feel this pulling to just hand it over to Jesus. It’s not always easy. It’s often times hard. It feels like we’re the only one in this hole. It’s often times easier to believe that we’re the only one who has ever went through loneliness.
It’s easier to believe that lie. It helps us to grow more numb to the pain. How can we be lonely? Maybe a time of solitude is a time of growing character. Maybe it’s a time to see who we really are. I’m not really sure why we go through times that we feel lonely. Maybe it’s because God is trying to pull us closer to him. The great Prophets of old had to go through times of loneliness.
I think that during times we feel lonely, as the song says, we just need to cry out to Jesus. Just cry out to him to take all loneliness and fill it with Him, because he’s the only one that can fill all loneliness. It’s hard to have the faith sometimes, but He is always there. It may not be instant. It may take a while, but He still loves us. His Holy Spirit fills us. We’ve just got to hope. “There are three things that will endure–faith, hope, and love–and the greatest of these is love.” (1 Corinthians 13:13 NLT)
