Of a whole new kind

Wind blowing, rain falling, I stand here alone. Or so it sometimes appears that way, anyway. There are times in my life where I just long for someone to know me. I long for someone to accept me just exactly as I am. And for years I've searched and searched for the person on this earth that would love me unconditionally. My heart aches even now because that fulfillment is so impossible. I just want someone to hold me close and tell me they love me no matter what happens. No matter what I do, what I say, where I go.....
I'd say that's the search we are all on, in some fashion or another. Every single one of us have that need in our hearts -- we want to be loved in a perfect way. We run from person to person seeking the one who might love us and be everything we need them to be. I have spent years doing this, and have come up short. Here I stand, having nobody on this earth who can ever truly love me like I need to be loved. Sometimes I feel it, and other times I don't.
There will never be a moment in our lives where someone here will be able to love us like that, though. I have come deeply to this realization. We all fall short--we are not capable of loving anyone that way either. The hole we have in our hearts--the one that so long has desired to be loved completely comes from the Lord God of Israel. That need is so that we will come running to Him, finding no peace and love (of perfection) on this earth from anyone. This perfect love comes from the Lord. I know this, not only because I feel it, but also because Jesus has promised us in John 15:9 "As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love." This is what I have to rest my assurance in--that Jesus Christ loves me and He loves YOU. Let our searches be over, let our broken wounded hearts be lifted up in this promise! Let us abide in His Love--the pure and perfect kind.

Hi Emily,

Let me add also, "Love covers a multitude of sin." That Love is the very blood of Jesus that covers our sin. That magnificeint Love is freely available to us any time, night or day. May that Love fill us and flow through us that others might also receive that magnificeint Love that is Jesus, who is Life.

Great first post! I like your heart, I see Jesus there!

Hey ,Emily ... welcome aboard! Great to have your input! Wonderful, in fact ... that we can celebrate the full longing of our hearts met in the Lord, Who shed abounding love filling and overfilling our hearts, that we cannot contain it.

Thank you Tim for the wonderful verses. Thus this reminder....again and again the Lord speaks to me of His love for us, and the love we must have for one another.
Pam, if it were not for "Love covering a multitude of sins", I would not be here. I would not be loved at all. What reminded me in all of this was that for a moment I let my fleshly eyes look at the circumstances around me...and when I did that, I saw pure loneliness. I realized that nobody really loves me like I want them to....except for the Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord is my freedom. He came to this earth to die so that we could live. He did this because He loves us (as we've discussed, Trent). Oh what a sweet joy it is to know that the Lord loves us, and knows us like no other.

Even if I don't know you, Jesus in me loves you as if we had known each other forever. You are my little sister in Christ and I am so glad He has sent you here.
