We all want to be loved. We want to be pursued-girls and guys-we all want to know that someone cares about our day, cares about our job, cares about our feelings, cares about the things that we care about. This time of year seems to put a magnifying glass on that emotion because of the obvious (Valentines day!) I get it, I’m single,and most days I'm content in waiting for God to write my love story but something about this day-Valentine’s Day-makes my heart cry out a little louder. Whether you’re single and you don’t want to be, or you’re in a relationship that wasn’t exactly what you were hoping for,we all want to be wanted. The best part of this story is that whatever your circumstance-single,married,confused-God is pursuing you! He cares about all the details of your life! And I know that doesn’t result in getting flowers at work or being told you are beautiful in the way you may be craving but there is a reason When God wanted to show us the passionate intensity of His relationship with us, He chose marriage as the metaphor. HE wants you. He wants your heart. God is crazy about you-and that’s year round!
Matt. 18:12 -14 Jesus says, "What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost."
