the legacy of loneliness

Lord, how painful is my loneliness! Yet, how precious is this loneliness when it leads me to You! When loneliness lures me to seek You, moves me to let You in, entreats me to spend time with You – pushes me to pursue You in place of other pleasures – teaches me to look to You for all I lack -to let Your comforting Presence ease my pain – to feel the joy that all creation knows in Your Presence -this is the legacy my loneliness leaves to me – Your sustaining Presence filling all my empty spaces to overflowing with peace, purpose, healing, hope, joy, love – all gifts Your Presence freely gives – leaving me full to overflowing with all Your good gifts, as I realize there is no longer room for loneliness while You abide with me, making Your home where my loneliness once lived . . .

” . . . You will fill me with joy in Your presence, with eternal pleasures at Your right hand.” (Psalm 16:11)

“Whom have I in heaven but You? And earth has nothing I desire besides You.” (Psalm 73:25)

“God sets the lonely in families, He leads forth the prisoners with singing;” (Psalm 68:6)

Loneliness is a dark prison – thank You, Lord, for the light of Your Presence which sets me free from loneliness’s isolating grip –

sincerely, Grace Day
