I Want You In My Life

I want you in my life!

How often do we hear this in our lives?  As children we love to hear this from our parents.  As teenagers, we long to hear it from our friends.  As adults, we desire to hear it from the people we love and pray they love us back.

“There are many things in life that will catch your eye, but only a few will catch your heart.  Pursue these….”

Love.  I hear “love” screaming from this statement.  It is stated in 1 Corinthians 13:13 “So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”  Oh yes, I want to pursue love, I want what the bible promises.

Withholding love and not communicating is not the pursuit of love.  It is not telling someone you want them in your life.  It is the opposite.  It’s screaming that you do NOT have room in your life for them, you do NOT need them, and perhaps, even making them feel they are not even worthy of being loved.

I hear God shouting to me, “I WANT YOU IN MY LIFE”.  I hear you Lord.  I do.

Sometimes things happen in life to prevent love.  It can make it feel that pursuing it anymore seems worthless.  At times we need to come to the ends of ourselves to find God.  Sometimes being broken is the only way.  I had forgotten for a time that you can’t change what has already happened, you need to look ahead instead of behind.  That is where you will find love.  The love God promises. God creates the masterpiece from all your broken pieces.  The anointed and appointed love will grab you and never let go.

“Our longing to be reunited with something in the universe from which we now feel cut off is the truest index of our real situation.”  C. S. Lewis

Our longing to be wanted is part of us, it is placed in us while we are being woven together in the womb. It is a need that can only be fulfilled with God as the driving force.  With God as the main piece of the 3 part chord, love is everlasting and can not fail. I want you in my life.  I need you in my life.

God, I want YOU in my life.  All consuming.  Unconditionally.  Forever.
