The Search

May 20, 2011 Donna New

And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13

I’m a single girl who is lonely and who has friends who are lonely. Our married friends, so many of them are taking care of kids or grandkids. The problem comes when we walk into an empty house to eat dinner alone. Our heart feels aching for want of a companion.

There are quick fixes…call a friend, read a book, watch TV, facebook. These work temporarily but they are really not much longterm comfort. And they are not real, honest comfort.

But our empty heart that comes home and finds itself alone has an opportunity  to take advantage of our loneliness. We can seek after God with all our heart. When we call out to Him with how much we’re hurting somehow the tender ears He has hear and His gentle heart feels our pain. There’s a comfort in being understood and loved.

We’ll still have our lonely times. Nothing’s a cure-all in this world. But we’ll have the opportunity to grow close to His warmth and gentle friendship.
