Forfeiting Peace Due To Loneliness

There are certain circumstances we can not change in life. Whether it’s betrayal, hurt, bitterness, anger, and for some of us it’s the feeling of loneliness that causes us to say you know what “I Give Up.” I laugh because instantly this is where you give Satan full authority to feel as if he’s taken your victory away.

One thing that triggers me is watching the fairytale stories of how and what our lives should look like and instantly we fall captive into one’s belief. Our minds are then consumed into thinking life should be perfect and we should have this in life and that. You get it? Basically we should have it all together.

So then in this state of mind when we’re not where we think we should be from evaluating the movies, social media, & etc we then lose hope. You get this feeling as if it’ll never happen for you. The next thing is it then triggers your mind into thinking negatively which now affects your peace (your mental state.)

The act of loneliness itself is not a form of desperateness instead I believe it’s protection from the wrongs in life. Here below are some ways I believe we forfeit our peace due to loneliness :

  • We stop praying
  • We stop believing
  • We focus more on the World & not of God
  • We compare our lives
  • We hold bitterness within
  • We become slow to forgive
  • We lose self esteem

Those are just some of the ways we become affected. Now there’s good news to add if one day you step back just to evaluate you and life itself you’ll then realize there’s a list of promises that carries us through when we least expect it. Here below are some ways we can overturn these feelings.

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.”

Philippians‬ ‭4:6‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.””

John‬ ‭16:33‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.”

John‬ ‭14:27‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“‘May the Lord bless you and protect you.”

Numbers‬ ‭6:24‬ ‭NLT‬‬

There are ways to regain our power let’s proclaim our victory! Seek in God to regain your peace. Trust in him and believe that he will take action to form you into who he’s created you to be. So instead of losing our peace due to loneliness, we should now come in to terms that our current situation is not our final destination.

Break free and find you again ❤️
