Bible quotes about loneliness
A spiritual loneliness quote from Jesus' words in the Bible helped me in the years of being bedbound and continues to help me:
"Lo, I am with you, even to the end of the world."
28:20, KJV Bible quote)
Love, Light, Hope,
You are with me to the end of the world.
If your feeling of loneliness stems from your relationship with your mother...
"Can a mother forget the baby at her breast
and have no compassion on the child she has
Though she may forget, I will not forget
See, I have engraved you on the palms of my
NIV, overcome loneliness spiritual quote)

And a bible verse to validate feeling spiritually lonely:
"How shall we sing the LORD'S song in a strange land?"
(Psalm 137:4, KJV)
This one of the quotes about loneliness refers to a time when the Jewish people were taken captive.
The bible verse is included in the Boney M hit, By The Rivers of Bablyon, so you could sing along :-)
Sometimes we may feel caught up in our own strange land of problems and far from God. Still we can choose to sing.
Even in this strange land of mine
I sing the LORD'S song
We are invited to move from loneliness to connection by engaging in spiritual practice to increase our sense that we are always in the Presence of Love.
Have not I commanded thee?
Be strong and of a good courage;
be not afraid,
neither be thou dismayed:
for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
(Joshua 1:9, Bible loneliness quote)
Be strong and of a good courage,
fear not, nor be afraid of them:
for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee;
he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
(Deuteronomy 31:5, Bible loneliness quote)
“never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you.”
So we say with confidence,
“the Lord is my helper;
I will not be afraid.
What can man do to me?””
(Hebrews 13:5-6, NIV)
A Course In Miracles spiritual quotes about loneliness
The following quotes about loneliness from ACIM tell us that it is
inevitable we will feel lonely when we identify with the body
rather than with our spiritual selves.
"We speak today for everyone who walks this world,
for he is
not at home.
He goes uncertainly about in endless search,
seeking in darkness
what he cannot find;
not recognizing what it is he seeks.
A thousand homes he
yet none contents his restless mind.
He does not understand he builds in
The home he seeks can not be made by him.
There is no substitute for
All he ever made was hell."
The home I seek can not be made by me.
Let me stop looking for a home in the wrong place.
My home is in Heaven.
I make the decision for Heaven now.
“I am at home.
Fear is the stranger here.
Fear is a
stranger to the ways of love.
Identify with fear, and you will be a stranger to
And thus you are unknown to you.
What is your Self remains an alien
to the part of you which thinks that it is real, but different from yourself.
could be sane in such a circumstance?
Who but a madman could believe he is what
he is not,
and judge against himself? ...
A stranger to
himself can find no home wherever he may look,
for he has made return
His way is lost, except a miracle will search him out
and show him
that he is no stranger now.
The miracle will come..."
I am at home. Fear is the stranger here.
AMEN AMEN AMEN
My way is lost, except a miracle will search me out
and show me that I am no stranger now.
The miracle will come...
And the following ACIM quotes about loneliness speak of how to overcome loneliness
...by remembering we remain one with God.
...by practising forgiveness to allow us to feel at One with all our brothers and sisters
...by calling on God's name
Whom He knows to be His Son belongs where He has set His
He has answered you who ask, "Who is the stranger?"
Hear His Voice assure you, quietly
that you are not a stranger to your Father,
nor is your Creator
stranger made to you.
Whom God has joined remain forever one,
at home in Him,
no stranger to Himself...
Not one does
Not one He fails to give you to remember, that your home may be
complete and perfect as it was established.
He has not forgotten you.
will not remember Him until you look on all as He does.
Who denies his brother
is denying Him,
and thus refusing to accept the gift of sight by which
is clearly recognized,
his home remembered
and salvation come."
I hear Your Voice assure me, quietly
that I am not a stranger to you, my Father,
nor are You, my Creator
a stranger to me.
You have joined me to you,
so we remain forever one,
I remain at home in You,
I am no stranger to You.
"Say [God's] Name,
and you invite the angels to surround the ground
on which you stand,
and sing to you as they spread out their wings to keep you
and shelter you from every worldly thought
that would intrude upon your
Course In Miracles quotes)
"You do not walk alone.
God's angels hover near and all about.
Love surrounds you, and of this be sure;
that I [Jesus] will never leave you
(W.ep.6, A Course In Miracles quotes)
Prayer based on quote to overcome loneliness
God, I say Your Name.
To do so invites the angels to surround the ground
on which I stand,
and sing to me as they spread out their wings to keep me safe.
They shelter me from every worldly thought.
Nothing now intrudes upon my holiness.
Comments and quotes about loneliness. From a visitor, Nora
The article on how to deal with loneliness is a timely piece for me. I've been going through an
intense period of loneliness lately.
I've experienced periods of it
before and always found (after the event) that it was a period of
This time it's affected me more deeply, even to the point of
questioning God and why he would allow such desperate bereft feelings
of depression to occur.
There are many reasons (it seems).
This time a reminder of 'Job' came. (AGAIN!)
course she/he'll continue to love you, as long as she/he feels your
presence, take away the feeling of that presence and we'll see how
Feeling disconnected is the loneliest place.
Even when we know that it's not possible to be disconnected....the feeling is enough.
IT'S A TEST. (sometimes)
I have two loneliness quotes which I repeat to myself when it's too much for me.
'THIS TOO WILL PASS.'
and a quote I learned more recently from a film -
THE BEAUTIFUL MARIGOLD HOTEL.
'EVERYTHING WILL BE ALRIGHT IN THE END.
AND IF EVERYTHING'S NOT ALRIGHT - TRUST ME -
IT IS NOT YET THE END!'
None of it is easy when we're going through it.
Here's another quote on loneliness - from Mother Teresa -
it makes me smile, I identify with it so much.
'I know that God only tests me this much because he trusts me. I only wish that he didn't trust me quite so much'.
Guess what? I already feel a lot better, just by speaking to you about it. Not everyone would understand :> Norma
Thank you for your beautiful quotes about loneliness and for sharing about your pain.
I know your post will help many others.
Your paraphrase of the Bible quote from Job reminds me of the words of CS Lewis in The Screwtape Letters:
"God is never more touched than when someone who has no reason to believe believes anyway."
