There are three core desires of a woman’s heart. Look at the movies we love, the books we read; watch little girls at play. You will learn something very important about the feminine soul. These are the desires that shape our hopes and dreams; they are essential in order to live life as a woman.
To Be Romanced:
God loves romance. He created it. Sunsets, flowers, music, a kiss—all his ideas. He says, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13)! God wants to be pursued. And so do we. Now—we are not saying that being romanced is all that a woman wants; nor are we saying that a woman ought to find the meaning of her life in whether she is being or has been pursued. Nevertheless—every woman longs to be loved, to be chosen, to have someone fight for her. At some core place deep within, every woman wants to be seen, delighted in, and pursued. We long to be romanced.
An Irreplaceable Role:
We also want to be essential, needed, irreplaceable. A woman doesn’t come alive being merely “useful.” There is something fierce in the heart of a woman. Simply insult her children, her man, or her best friend, and you’ll get a taste of it. A woman is a warrior too—but in a uniquely feminine way. When God creates Eve he calls her ezer —literally, a “life saver,” someone you need desperately when all hope is lost. We are relational to the core of our being and filled with a desire for transcendent purpose. We long to play an irreplaceable part in a shared adventure. God made us this way. The world needs us.
Beauty All Our Own to Unveil:
Finally, there is Beauty. Every young girl wants to know she is lovely. Some will ask with words; others simply ask with their eyes. We want to be noticed. And it’s not just the desire for an outward beauty; far more it is a desire to be captivating in the depths of who we are. For this, too, is how we bear the image of God, who is beautiful and wants to bring beauty to the world. You bear the image of God and possess your own unique beauty to bring into the world. #chosentoreign : @laurentaylorltw
