We all have tasted loneliness at some point in our lives.
It isn’t simply about not having company, but about having quality company that does us good. And that is not easy to find.
But the good news is, we are far from being alone. We are meant to be. And this loneliness that clouds our judgment and keeps us from seeing with the eyes of faith can be defeated.
So how do we defeat it? Well, the answer is: we don’t. It is the One who made us with unconditional love who defeats it. But he can only defeat our loneliness when we humbly accept his love.
Our lives are transformed when we become conscious of this love and gain the confidence, through faith, that we are not alone.
When we follow his ways, there’s no reason to feel lonely, because he gives us every opportunity to be with others who reflect his love.
Yet if we still feel lonely at times, we just have to call his name and he will be there through the people he brings into our lives.
