Contentment

A couple weeks ago my suitemate's boyfriend was asking me if there were any "special" guys in my life. There's not...and I could honestly tell him that I was content with that. I am content in that area in my life. Right now, I just want to fall more in love with Jesus.
There is a cry within each one of us that wants to be captivating and loved by another. We want to take someone's breath away, yet we replace that someone with anyone who will pay attention to us. A guy or a girl can't complete that desire. We search and search for that One. The world grows tired of the masks we've place over our hearts to gain love...and it has all been through our own pursuit. There's a quote that says, "Don't chase after love and hope God catches up to you, chase after God and see who's running beside you." I think that is so true! True contentment is letting Jesus make you beautiful inside and out, knowing that as you pursue Him, everything will work out according to His perfect plan. My challenge to you is to follow your true love and continue to fall in love with Him...then and only then will you be able to effectively love someone else.

Captivate me, Jesus
You alone are Beautiful
You alone are worthy
Captivate me, Jesus
Until you are all that's left of me.
You alone can make me beautiful
when you shine through me.
