Loneliness During the Holidays  

“For Thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.” Psalm 116:8

I believe that the holidays are the most lonely time of the year.

Everywhere you look people are told they’re supposed to be happy and they realize that they’re not. They see everybody else acting happy, and they feel so lonely. Just walking through the mall can make you feel lonely.

But Jesus has said, “I will never leave thee nor forsake thee” (Hebrews 13:5).  

  • When I’m discouraged, His presence sees me through.  
  • When I’m lonely His presence cheers me up.   
  • When I’m worried, His presence calms me down.  
  • And when I am tempted, His presence will help me out. 

Write down the last portion of this devotional thought and personalize it. Now use it as a prayer of faith and trust.
