This is part of our monthly “I’m feeling…” Spotify playlist. It is our hope that these songs can deepen our relationship with God by helping us connect to emotions that may be difficult to explain, understand, or resolve. Follow our Deep Spirituality Spotify account to get notified when these playlists are updated.
Hear me, O Eternal One, hear my prayer! Hear my lonely desperate cry for help.
Psalm 102:1 – The Voice
When we feel lonely, it can feel like no one will listen to or understand us. When we feel alone and isolated, we can become afraid that if we really let people in, they won’t accept us for who we are. We may begin to believe that the pain of loneliness is better than the pain of rejection. But God doesn’t want us to live like this, he wants fill the hole that loneliness creates.
No Longer Alone
You see all things; You saw me growing, changing in my mother’s womb; Every detail of my life was already written in Your book; You established the length of my life before I ever tasted the sweetness of it.  Explore me, O God, and know the real me. Dig deeply and discover who I am. Put me to the test and watch how I handle the strain.
Psalm 139:16,23 Voice
God loves us for who we are and understands us from the inside out. With God we don’t have to be alone, but sometimes it’s hard to see that.
That’s where music can help us. Music speaks to the soul and helps us express parts of ourselves that are too deep for words. Through music, we can understand and express our sadness, anger, happiness, insecurity, and so much more. Through music, we can go from feeling completely alone and misunderstood to loved and known by God.
The playlist is meant to display the same progression David went through in the Psalms – starting with songs about feeling lonely, rejected, and afraid of being known, and progressing to seeing how God loves us for who we are and understands what we go through. Though this progression is meant to help you work through your emotions as you listen, you can listen to the playlist in whatever order you want – it is meant to help you work through, understand and express the emotions of your heart!
