Redeeming loneliness isn’t being afraid of being alone. It is realizing we are never alone with God. Redeeming loneliness is embracing the seclusion. We can choose to redeem our loneliness.
- What if our longing leads us to Christ?
- What if being alone was a virtue?
- What if loneliness wasn’t about being less then?
Christ said, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for their’s is the kingdom of God.” We find the kingdom of God when we embrace our poverty of longing and seek Christ.
Isolation is not the issue. We can be surrounded by people and still feel alone. We like to hide it, because it feels wrong and un-Christian to feel alone.
It isn’t filling our lives with meaningless activities or busy to-do lists. It isn’t filling our houses with people and parties. Don’t add more to your life, seek instead to remove the empty things. Don’t see the four walls of our house as a prison, instead, see it as a secret hiding place in which you can find contentment in Christ.
Jesus was intentional. He used time alone to pray, seek God, and figure out what God wanted for His life. He relied on his times of being alone to lead Him to the next step.
Instead of feeling trapped, empty, and unseen, choose to embrace this season. Cling to the aloneness. Let it enfold your heart, wrapping you tight in the love of Christ. Seize the loneliness and change it.
PURSUING GOD IN OUR LONELINESS
Seek out seclusion. Not to be alone, but to be alone with God. Change the narrative to your story. Find direction, satisfaction, and peace when you pursue God in your season of unknown.
