Coping with loneliness during separation and divorce magnifies as darkness falls. The nights can be the worst. When the losses and uncertainties of divorce become magnified, our bodies tire and our minds grow wearier. Being lonely turns our focus inward.
So What Can You Do?
Shift your focus. Coping with loneliness during separation and divorce is the perfect time to pour out your heart to God. When your heart is brimming with grief and fear, you can unload those daunting emotions to the one who loves you most.
And He comes.
When we shift our focus to the presence and power of our God, He comes into our hearts, steadies our nerves, and calms our spirits.
Emptiness and sorrow yield to praise. And praise fills our hearts with an inexplicable peace. For even when our eyes are swollen and our hearts are weary and depleted, God is great. He is compassionate. He lifts us up.
Yes, even when our circumstances are bleak we can know that God is greater than our circumstances. God is the promise of hope and the comfort of eternal love for those who seek Him.
Give God the darkness of your nights. Never face the nights alone again.
“Arise, cry out in the night, as the watches of the night begin; pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord. Lift up your hands to him….” Lamentations 2:19
