None of us lives to himself alone and none of us dies to himself alone. If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.
The Opposite of Loneliness
A couple of years ago, CNN did a piece about the impact of loneliness on a personâs life. Loneliness, it said, âcan undermine well-being, IQ test performance and self-control.â In other words, loneliness can eventually help tear you down to the point where you feel defeated, helpless and dull.
CNN then quoted a young woman by the name of Marina Keegan.
Lord Jesus, in those moments when my feelings of loneliness arise, remind me that I possess the opposite of loneliness in you. Chase away my lonely moments. Replace them with yourself. Amen.
