Loneliness is not the act of being alone but feeling unknown. Many of us feel and fear being alone. But Scripture promises that if we’ve trusted in Christ for salvation, we have been eternally reconciled, brought close, to God. He encamps around us, goes before us, stands behind us and makes His home within us.

In this episode, Jennifer Slattery, Tara Rye, and Shellie Arnold discuss the soul-reaching comfort that comes when we recognize that we will never have to face our hurts and fears alone.
