Daily Spirit & Word, 451: With Jesus you will NEVER be LONELY again.
Jesus Christ is the ANSWER to our deepest needs in life: relational connection with the Creator.

Bible Verses About Being Alone, Solitude, Jesus Being Alone
It’s Important to take out time to be alone sometimes – Like Jesus did
“When Jesus heard what had happened to John, he left in a boat and went to a lonely place by himself. But the crowds heard about it and followed him on foot from the towns. When he arrived, he saw a great crowd waiting. He felt sorry for them and healed those who were sick.” (NCV)
Mat 14:23 “After he had sent them away, he went by himself up into the hills to pray. It was late, and Jesus was there alone.” (NCV)
Luke 5:16 “..but Jesus often slipped away to be alone so he could pray.” (NCV)
“My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.”
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
For I am convinced that 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.” (NIV)
