Who Are You Desiring?

"So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."

Who Are You Desiring?

Often times when we want a man in our life is when we see others with one. It reminds us that we are "lonely and without". I was with a group of girls and someone brought this up, "Love when you are ready, not when you are lonely." Song of Solomon 8:4 says the same thing, "...I charge you: Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires."
A guy can not fix that hole in your heart that is desiring something, only God can. Humans are faulty sinful people. We make mistakes and when others make mistakes against us we never fully forgive and forget, but God is perfect.
All of these things that we are wanting in a guy is only temporary and will not last in eternity, but God's love lasts forever.

A man is not made to complete you, he is made to compliment you.

Why do you desire to find a significant other? How can God meet those desires in your life?
Beverly in, "Lady in Waiting", tells us best.

I want to be loved.
"...I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. " Jeremiah 31:3

I want someone to adore me.
The King has brought me into his chambers to adore me. My lover is outstanding among 10,000. Song of Solomon 1:4: 5:10

I want someone to hold my hand.
"...I will uphold you with My righteous hand." Isiah 41:10

I want to be accepted and valued.
I am accepted in the Beloved. Ephesians 1:6

I want help in my days of trouble.
"Call upon Me in the day of trouble: I shall rescue you..." Psalms 50:15

I want to share my life - the joys and the struggles - with one person.
God will share with me the treasures of darkness and hidden riches. Isiah 45:3

I want a champion of my causes - one who is willing to fight for me.
"The Lord will fight for you..." Exodus 14:14

I want someone to meet my needs.
God is meeting all of my needs. Philippians 4:19

I want intimacy.
The Lord is intimacy with the upright. Psalms 140:13

I want someone to help me in life.
There is no one like God who rides the heavens to help you. Deuteronomy 33:26

I want to walk through life sustained and carried. I do not want the whole load of life.
Even to my old age, God will sustain me, carry me, and rescue me. Isiah 46:4

I want a companion for this life.
God invites us to humbly walk with him. Micah 6:8

Only God can meet the deepest needs and desires of your heart. A man may do it temporarily, but God will do it for eternity.
