Feeling unloved is a difficult emotion to deal with. We may feel like we are alone in the world and that no one cares about us. When you have this feeling of abandonment and loneliness, it can be hard to believe that God loves you. After all, if the people who are supposed to love you can’t or won’t, how can you believe that an unseen God does?

But the truth is, the Lord does love you. He loves us so much that He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins. And no matter how alone or unloved you feel, God is always there for you. He loves you more than anyone else ever could. He will never leave you or forsake you. His love for you is perfect and unending. 

If you’re lonely, talk to God. Pour your heart out to Him. Tell Him how you’re feeling and why. Lean on Him for strength and comfort during these times. He wants to hear from you and He cares about what’s going on in your life. Don’t be afraid to share your deepest thoughts and feelings with Him.
