The loneliness epidemic
Modern life is making us lonelier, and recent research indicates that this may be the next biggest public health issue on par with obesity and substance abuse. A recent review of studies indicates that loneliness increases mortality risk by 26%.

Loneliness is an increasing problem in modern life. The Church Urban Fund and the Church of England found a rise of 10 per cent in the last three years in clergy members who felt that social isolation was a major problem in their local area. Another survey by the Mental Health Foundation found that in the UK one in ten of us feels lonely often and 48 per cent of people think we are getting lonelier in general. Britain has even been voted the loneliness capital of Europe.

So why are we getting lonelier? Changes in modern society are considered to be the cause. We live in nuclear family units, often living large distances away from our extended family and ...

"Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted."
~ Psalm 25:16 (ESV)
14 The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant. 15 Mine eyes are ever toward the Lord; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net. 16 Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted. 17 The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses. 18 Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins. 19 Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred. 20 O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee. 21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee. 22 Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.

I too have found great comfort and instruction in Psalm 25 and Psalm 116

"Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken."

God bless!

If I rightly understood what John was hinting at we are not alone if indwelt by the Spirit of God,we have communion with the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. We might as a redeemed child of God be able to enjoy our own'ed' company when walking in the Spirit but not if fulfilling the lusts of the flesh, then we'd be more like the uninvited guest?

Ephes 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore,

Mr. Elmer daily fellowship with Christ and his people is the desire of all his family, it is a bit simplistic to think that is easily achieved at this time for a number of reasons, yet it is what should be sought by each of us. Appreciated your comment Grateful. Thinking about everything mentioned here related to neglectithe needs of others, and why it ha

I used to tell people that although I am single, there are five living comfortably in my apartment, although with one other uninvited "guest". See if you can work out who they are.

The time has come where even natural affection is lacking.
My heartfelt prayers goes out to anyone experiencing the pangs of loneliness. All of creation is groaning in times like these.
I was taught that God brings about these times to test us, and because he trusts us to cling to the Rock. I'm not sure about him trusting man (he knows what is in man), but almost every child of God goes through this as he sees pervasive evil worldwide. So pray for those you know are in this tribulation with you. Pray for those brethren in the Middle East who are in prisons and in war zones. Pray that he gives you a stronger passion to know him in this suffering. We have been called to be led to the slaughter as sheep whose Shepherd went before us with joy. It is hard I know. Try to go back to the foot of the Cross where you first saw Christ.
We shall see him.
May God's spirit be with your spirit.

I've been preaching "lack of people syndrome" for the last 10 years! Professed believers cannot comprehend brotherly love and daily fellowship.

I am chronically ill and isolated and rarely get a visitor, yet Jesus says: "I was a stranger and you welcomed me," "I was sick and you visited me," and, "I was in prison and you came to me."

“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.'"

~ Matthew 25:31-40 ESV

Ecclesiastes on Loneliness.

4:1 So I returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun: and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they had no comforter.
2 Wherefore I praised the dead which are already dead more than the living which are yet alive.
3 Yea, better is he than both they, which hath not yet been, who hath not seen the evil work that is done under the sun.
4 Again, I considered all travail, and every right work, that for this a man is envied of his neighbour. This is also vanity and vexation of spirit.
5 The fool foldeth his hands together, and eateth his own flesh.
6 Better is an handful with quietness, than both the hands full with travail and vexation of spirit.
7 Then I returned, and I saw vanity under the sun.
8 There is one alone, and there is not a second; yea, he hath neither child nor brother: yet is there no end of all his labour; neither is his eye satisfied with riches; neither saith he, For whom do I labour, and bereave my soul of good? This is also vanity, yea, it is a sore travail.
9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.
10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: ......
