The Lonely Heart

The Lonely Heart

They say it is better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all.

But what if you’ve lost love but still have the person?

The pain of rejection on a daily basis is a profound loneliness that too many struggle with.

The wondering of “What is wrong with me that he can’t love me?”

The loss of the dream of ever feeling cherished, wanted and desired.

It is demoralizing.

It is painful.

And if she wants to honor God, it means she cannot seek solace in the arms of another.

Rejected and alone.

Rarely able to express her heart’s deepest longings and be understood.

Never to be nurtured.

Hopeless and voiceless .

But God sees.

He knows.

He cares.

As the lover of the wounded soul He understands rejection and abuse.

And He waits for us.

We hold on.

We pray.

We long.

We remember that this world is a blip in the timeline of eternity.

Sooner than we realize we will be home.

Embraced.

Cherished more than our human frailty could ever withstand here.

And our suffering will have been worth it.

So wait.

Hope.

Stay faithful.

And know – you are not alone.
