Loneliness God Hears Her Podcast

    • Christianity

We’ve all felt lonely at one point or another in our lives. In many different situations or areas of our lives we may feel an overwhelming sense of loneliness. On this episode of God Hears Her, hosts Eryn Eddy and Elisa Morgan talk about different types of loneliness and even share their own stories of feeling lonely. 
 
Notes and Quotes: 
“I think you can be surrounded by people and affirmation and celebration and all of that and still feel lonely.”  “A recent survey found that almost half of Americans feel alone. Nearly 50% feel lonely, left-out, isolated, or lack companionship. The number of friends people report today is one or none, whereas 20 years ago people could name on average four close relationships.” Six Types of Loneliness according to Elisa: Emotional: feeling like nobody really loves you Relational: feeling like nobody really knows the real you Vocational: feeling like life has no meaning and no one really cares if you’re here or not Spiritual: feeling literally alone and/or apart or cut off from God Physical: no one to share the “alone” with; having to do things alone Situational: experience of not being included “God gives an affirmation towards each of those kinds of loneliness.” Affirmations: Emotional: God gives a promise that He loves us. Relational: God gives His perception. He says, “I know you because I made you.” Vocational: God gives a purpose. He says, “I know the plans I have for you.” Spiritual: God gives His presence. He says, “I will be with you.” Physical: God gives His provision. He says, “I will provide for you.” Situational: God gives His perspective. He says, “I’ll use all things for your good and My purposes.” “Lament your loneliness, feel it.” “In feeling lonely, we have an opportunity to experience vulnerability in something we would not normally do.”
