Bible studies for writers

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 142

Loneliness is a real curse for me sometimes. While I do enjoy my alone time, I do not enjoy feeling lonely or like “no one cares a bit what happens to me.” But it happens. And I’m betting it happens to all of us. We can be surrounded by people and still feel lonely, huh? When these times hit, I fight back loneliness in a number of ways. Sometimes I write. Sometimes I make a call to someone. Sometimes I plan a trip to see the people I miss the most. But always I invite Jesus to join me wherever I am. I invite the Holy Spirit into my heart to fill me up with joy. I invite God to show me His approachable love and ask if I can just curl up on His lap for a few minutes. And, oh gosh, how it helps. I don’t think I would have made it overseas for nearly 11 years without this indescribable comfort.

Sum it up:

I am begging, Lord,
Show me the way
Out of this mess
Because no one else
Cares enough to do it.

Writing prompt: alone

Write out your thoughts about being alone vs. loneliness.
