I Feel so Lonely
It’s me, Lord. Here I am again.
We’ve had this conversation before. When I was single, I was so lonely—remember? I would ask you for a decent man to marry, and I waited a long time. Well, I’m married now—why do I still feel lonely?
I try to tell my husband all my feelings and emotions, but even though he tries to be polite, I can tell he doesn’t really get it and doesn’t see how important these conversations are to me. After a bit I think he just tunes me out. I wish he could get into the things I am trying to tell him, but he just sits there. I want to tell him all the stressful and happy things about my day, but he fidgets. At first I would get angry inside; now I am just sad. What’s wrong with me?
I know you always listen to me, Lord. What a comfort it is to know that you understand me completely. Can you help me? “Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. The troubles of my heart have multiplied; free me from my anguish” (Psalm 25:16,17).
Help me continue to be a supportive and loving wife. Help me be attentive to him and meet his needs. Help me understand him better. Please help him notice my loneliness. Please.
