Not too long ago, one of our sweet readers was going through a very difficult time. When she wrote to me, I felt the loneliness dripping from her words and I wished that I could be there for her. Instead, I wrote a “Prayer for when I feel lonely” on her behalf. Today I was wondering how she is doing and I wanted to share this list of Bible verses for when I feel lonely.
