Verses for When You Feel Alone

Sometimes the encouragement we need has to come straight from God's word for it to really speak to our hearts. While adding our own words can be helpful and encouraging, there are times when reading another's thoughts just adds to the noise in our head. 

I believe this happens because what we really need is for our Creator's voice to speak directly into our hearts. We need Him. He is the only one who can fill that God-shaped hole in our heart. 

His word is all powerful, all healing and wholly dependable.

Mine aren't.

So, this is the beginning of a long series of posts focused directly on what God says when we feel or need a certain thing. 

Just His word. 

Just for you. 

Read them. Pray them. Write them. Add a few of your favorites. I trust however you use them, He will provide what you need. 


"Come near to God and He will come near to you..." 
~ James 4:8 ~

"I will not leave you comfortless: 
I will come to you." 
 ~ John 14:18 ~ KJV

"God is your refuge and strength, 
a very present help in trouble. "
 ~ Psalm 46:1 ~

"For the sake of His great name 
the Lord will not reject His people, 
because the Lord was pleased to make you his own. "
 ~ 1 Samuel 12:22 ~

Did you read that? God says He is PLEASED to make you His very own!

"The Lord Himself goes before you
 and will be with you; 
He will never leave you nor forsake you. 
Do not be afraid; 
do not be discouraged. "
 ~ Deuteronomy 31:8 ~

"Cast all your anxiety on Him 
because He cares for you.
 ~ 1 Peter 5:7 ~

"neither death nor life, 
neither angels nor demons, 
neither the present nor the future, 
nor any powers, 
neither height nor depth, 
nor anything else in all creation, 
will be able to separate us from the love of God 
that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
 ~ Romans 8:38-39

Jesus said, 
“I am with you always, 
to the very end of the age.” 
 ~ Matthew 28:20 ~

  1. Hi Kaylene! I'm coming over from Wednedays Prayer Girls.
    Hope seems to be a theme this week! I do appreciate the passages here, it really does encourage. "I am with you always." I do know that, even though I sometimes wonder where I went because I feel so alone. I have to stay close to him, and he will stay close to me. Sounds like a pretty good deal!
    Nice to meet you :)

  2. Thank you for sharing God's beautiful Word -- nothing else compares. I look forward to keeping up with this series. Blessings to you in Christ, Emily (visiting from Juana's link up party)

    1. Thank you for visiting, Emily! I trust you & many others will be blessed by this. Its amazing how fulfilling a few verses on a subject can strengthen & fulfill more than an entire article. His word is all powerful! Blessings!

  3. Hi Kaylene, this is a wonderful set of verses. I've struggled with loneliness as I've moved over oceans and states. These always bring a comfort to me. God bless.

  4. Great set of verses Kaylene.
    I just wrote a similar post with some resources (scriptures, worship songs and books) to help when facing discouragement. Thought it may help your readers.

    Cindy :)

  5. Never alone. Never outside of His care. Thanks for this great list of promises. Blessings!
