Loneliness has been a condition I’ve been suffering of all my adult life. It can be crippling, almost kill yourself, or make you wish that you could die, not wanting to live anymore. It feels like a severe punishment. Isolation. Not being able to connect when you need to, nowhere humanly to turn. Yes, I’m a Christian. I have gone to church for many years, but presently I cannot make myself go. I’ve grown to hate it as I couldn’t connect there, and it felt just as lonely. I hate that the devil has such a grip on my life. Yes, I’ve had counseling, therapy, prayer. Yes, I’ve experienced a lot of abuse when younger. I’ve had my fair share of healing, praise the Lord, or I wouldn’t have made it thus far. But the loneliness remains. Being too exhausted from work to reach out or meet people. Not finding it satisfying to meet people just for a short while. It’s serious. I almost feel like asking the Lord to take me home to not having to endure that suffering anymore. I don’t understand why He wouldn’t lift that burden. Julia, 51
