Loneliness can be felt even when surrounded by people. The causes of loneliness are various and may stem from social or psychological reasons, but the root cause is spiritual. Life is built on relationships. First and most importantly is our relationship to God, followed by our relationships to others and then oneself– within our own heart and life. We were created to know God. Until our lives come into line with that purpose, our other relationships will be awry.
“I am like a pelican of the wilderness; I am like an owl of the desert. I lie awake, And am like a sparrow alone on the housetop.” Psalm 102:6-7
