Loneliness is a powerful thing that often can result in deep sadness, anxiety, and pain. There are all kinds of life-situations that can trigger loneliness. The good news for those feeling lonely is that the Bible engages this struggle and offers real hope. Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, David wrote Psalm 22, which begins by asking God why He has forsaken David. He feels alone, abandoned my friends, attacked by foes, and feeling left by God. But, his response is to cry out and write a prayer that offers real hope in abandonment, as David paints a clear picture of the cross of Christ, and Jesus prayed this Psalm from the cross. The truth is that David was never really abandoned, God did not leave Him. God has promised to never leave or forsake us. But God did turn His back on Jesus as He poured out His wrath on the Son of God so that we would never be abandoned. Furthermore, God has given us a community of faith, a place to run toward when we feel alone.
