God created every person with deep longings that only He can fill. We all long for beauty, greatness, fascination, and intimacy-we all long to be enjoyed, to be wholehearted, to make a lasting impact. When we realize that these longings are godly and that God wants to fulfill them, we begin to find new freedom and joy. We are not to repent of these longings, but to repent of seeking to satisfy them outside of our relationshipwith Jesus. To encounter God in these areas is to be fully alive.
