Chronic loneliness plagues many people in America and around the world. Some are lonely because they have been hurt and rejected by people; while others intentionally isolate themselves because of fear, self-pity or they are overly critical of others. The latter expect too much of people — trying to get from people what can only come from God. A third type of loneliness is that appointed by God. Sometimes loneliness is the only true, proper, pure and godly option. No matter the cause of your loneliness, God wants to settle you in a place of community where you can give and receive love and acceptance.
