Our ten year old grand daughter has a boy who let her know he likes her so she is super excited. She likes him too but does not want him to know it, he is 9. It was revealing as I listened to her go on and on about him. The excitement over whelmed her.
Now to us who were listening to her, Grandpa and Grandma was not as excited as her, but we do understand that first little touch on the heart for someone to like us.
From the womb we do all we can to get someone attention. As little children and even older ones we will even do bad things to get that attention. I know how I strived as an adult to get my husband to approve of me, to give me that validation that he loves me. It's built into us from our creation.
Goodness, we even kick our mother while in the womb as if to say, hey I am here, notice me.
So this need is from the Lord, bred into us so we will turn to Him for all our needs. Which is why I love the song above. I thirsted for 35 years in usually all the wrong place for something to quench my thirst. Read about several religion but none satisfied me inside or filled up that water hole in my soul.
Only Jesus, the Thirst Quencher could do that.
