Being a Woman - Need to be Needed

Being a woman reflects the heart of God, so does being a man but we are focusing on the woman side of things. At the core of our heart what we cry out for is the same as what God cries out for.  Did that ever occur to you?  I am not talking about the superficial things, these things come from a deeper root.  Superficial things like I want a boy friend for example comes from the root of wanting to be loved, needed, accepted, admired, etc, etc.  Do you see what I mean?  When we crave yummy food we do not reflect God's hunger... I don't think He eats ha ha, but we reflect the need for comfort, satisfaction, enjoyment & pleasure.  These root desires are for the satisfaction of the flesh and since God doesn't have a body am sure these things don't reflect Him.  What I am trying to point out, is that whatever comes from our heart, deep down inside, is also what comes from God's heart.  There is a song that I really like from the movie 'Ten Things I Hate About you!' that sums it up so well!

I want you to want me
I need you to need me
I'd love you to love me
And I'm begging you to beg me

Do you have those cries deep inside of your heart?  Do you want someone to want you?  Do you need someone to need you?  Would you love someone to love you? Do you secretly wish someone would beg you?  Do you ache to be enough for someone? Do you hope to be worth pursuing?  Dig down deep inside of your soul, what is the heart of a woman crying out for?  Write down all of the things that are in your heart and then read to yourself.  This is what God's heart is calling out for too.  He so desperately wants you to want Him, the entire Bible confirms this.  He needs you to need Him, He wants to meet all your needs and give you the desires of your heart.  He wants to do all this for you but do you need Him to or are you taking care of yourself quite nicely. Consider all the deep desires in your heart and then you will realise that you are reflecting the heart of God.  He wants all those things too. His heart aches for it, read your Bible with this in mind and you will see what I mean.  

Exodus 34:14
Do not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.

Did you know that God is crazy about you, He loves you so much and He so desperately wants you to love Him this way too?
