This life is not about finding someone who will want you, it’s about finding a God who desires you above all else.
It’s so easy to admire a candle when we have never seen the sun, so it is when it comes to longing another person more than we long for Christ.
The love we find in others is simply the shadow of the love we find in Christ, because when we shift our goals and hopes to Christ; we bring more value and meaning to those around us.
“The wise should not boast in their wisdom,
or the powerful boast in their power,
or the rich boast in their riches.
But those who wish to boast
should boast in this alone:
that they truly know Me and understand that I am the Lord
who demonstrates unfailing love
and who brings justice and righteousness to the earth,
and that I delight in these things.
