Who will love me?
I feel so old. Unloved. Unwanted. Abandoned.
I just want to cry and sleep forever…
It’s a cry. Can you hear it?
The divorced. The abandoned child. A one-night stand. A silent phone. Cries of loneliness.
The most gut-wrenching cry of loneliness in history didn’t come from a widow or a patient. It came from a hill, from a cross, from a Messiah.
“My God, my God,” Jesus screamed. “Why did you abandon me?” (Matthew 27:46).
I think of all the people who cast despairing eyes toward the dark heavens and cry, “Why?” And I imagine Him listening. I picture His eyes misting and a pierced hand brushing away a tear. He may offer no answer, he may solve no dilemma.
But he who also was once alone—understands!
