Whether it's food, alcohol, pornography or even entertainment, none of these things can fill that lonely place. They only make you feel more lonely in the end. In those times that you are looking for something to fill the need of your heart, spend that time alone with Jesus.
He loves you and He wants to fill the need of your heart. He longs for you to turn to Him in your lonely valley and be satisfied.
Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. James 1:12

There are going to be seasons in our lives when we walk through valleys of loneliness. Sometimes it involves loss. Loss of friendship, loss of family members and loved ones.... sometimes it involves change or difficult circumstances or financial problems.
Loneliness doesn't simply mean being alone. You can experience loneliness while in a crowd of people or even in the company of your spouse or those closest to you.
That is because there is a place in your heart that is only reserved for Jesus Christ, the King of kings, our faithful unchanging friend.
Consider this...., I believe there is a reason or purpose for these lonely moments and it brings comfort to me as I walk through them.
I have found in my own life, four particular reasons for lonely seasons that I'd like to share with you over the next few blog posts. I hope you will be encouraged in your faith and reflect upon these posts as you walk through your own valley seasons.
Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I ,”
Hebrews 13:5 NASB
