Wanting

I want to be wanted. I have an intense desire or, rather, need to be wanted. I want to be pursued, cherished... wanted. Period. I never realized just how much I need that until I faced some past relationships and closed them, but I really do. Unfortunately, I don't think it's natural for others to need someone. So where do I go from here? I tell my small group they need to work on being content in their spiritual identity, but I struggle with that myself. I guess it's good exercise, or something...

Excuse me? It's very natural for others to need someone! That's what God created us for! Most importantly, to need him! But he knows we need people here on earth too. Oh shoot. Your post is exactly how I think sometimes. There I go again, preaching to the choir.

I'm reading this book called Captivating by John & Stasi Eldredge. They discuss how we are like God in this aspect--he is a jealous God, and wants us to desire him with our whole selves. The thing is, our love, and everything else about us, is rightfully God's.

Every girl wants to be sought after. Every girl wants to be loved. Every girl wants to be desired and beautiful. And, the fact of the matter is, we should be! I haven't gotten to the end yet, so I can't tell you what they say about getting over heartbreak and pain. I would recommend reading the book for yourself though.
