I have many sisters in Christ and I praise God for each and everyone. There are a chosen few of these God loving souls who without a doubt bring me to some of my most honest moments with myself. I realized in one such conversation; I deeply desire to feel needed and be loved. I know…you’re thinking…doesn’t everyone? I would definitely answer a resounding yes, but yet my quest to find love and be needed is a gut wrenching thirst that at times has seemed unquenchable.
Lately, I must admit I have not found myself missing love or yearning to be needed. I sense a peace about my life. It’s been like a deep breath with an everlasting exhale. I realize my only need is to be close to my heavenly Father. I don’t miss out on love, because when I’m with him in a quiet moment, his embrace of love is sufficient to sustain me. He takes me in His arms, holds me tight, and sings over me. It is beautiful indeed to experience his peace and be confident, if just for that moment…He is all I need.
It is funny you know; I long to be loved and needed, but so does Jesus. He longs to be needed and loved by me and also by you. Really, fellowship with Him is what God created us for in the first place. God was lonely and desired relationship. So I guess it shouldn’t surprise me when I crave the desire. God has craved for the same thing from us for a very long time.
All I know…when I take the time to love on Jesus and just sit awhile with him, it brings a smile upon my face. And you know what…God smiles back and is well pleased with His child.
