A Man & His Idols | Spoken Word
"Yes, we all know the wrenching pain that comes from experiencing rejection. Our hopes are crushed, our feelings ignored, our hearts broken. What do we do? We pull back. We draw inward and give way to doubt and distrust. We brace ourselves against further hurt, and with a straight face we say that we don’t care. It doesn’t matter. No one can hurt us.
The longing to be wanted continues to be the cry of our hearts.
So why do we keep hoping? Why does the secret wish to be wanted never go away? The hope lingers over use like a lullaby because we were created to experience love and to give love. We were made to belong, to be accepted, to be included. He moved heaven and earth to make known to you this steadfast truth: you are wanted.”
If only we believe and accept His true gracious love.
