The desire to be romanced lies deep in the heart of every women. It is for such that you were made. Are you ARE romanced, and ever will be. That's what makes a woman come alive.
I was nice. And let me tell you, a hesitant man is the last thing in the world a woman needs. She needs a lover and a warrior, not a Really Nice Guy. To keep desire alive and flourishing, we must renew our vision for what lies ahead.
Things will not always be like this. Desire is kept alive by imagination, the antidote to resignation. We will need imagination, which is to say, we will need hope. To say we want less than that is to lie. He wants to be a priority to someone. How could we have missed this? From cover to cover, from beginning to end, the cry of God's heart is, "Why won't you choose Me?
In other words, "Look for me, pursue me -- I want you to pursue me. As Tozer says, "God waits to be wanted. In one last flourish creation comes to a finish with Eve. She is the Master's finishing touch. We live in a love story in the midst of war. He needs a mission, a life purpose, and he needs to know his name. Only then is he fit for a woman, for only then does he have something to invite her into.
When it comes to habits we cannot quit or patterns we cannot stop, anger that flies out of nowhere, fears we cannot overcome, or weaknesses we hate to admit--much of what troubles us comes out of the broken places in our hearts crying out for relief.
Jesus speaks as if we are all brokenhearted. We would do well to trust His perspective on this. Until we are broken, our life will be self-centered, self-reliant; our strength will be our own. So long as you think you are really something in and of yourself, what will you need God for? Think of the posers you know—are they the kind of man you would call at A.
Not me. On the one hand, none of us ever really believed the sorcerer was real. We thought we could have the maiden without a fight.
Honestly, most of us guys thought our biggest battle was asking her out. And second, we have not understood the tower and its relationship to her wound; the damsel is in distress. If masculinity has come under assault, femininity has been brutalized. Eve is the crown of creation, remember?
She embodies the exquisite beauty and the exotic mystery of God in a way that nothing else in all creation even comes close to. And so she is the special target of the Evil One; he turns his most vicious malice against her. If he can destroy her or keep her captive, he can ruin the story. The true story of each person is the journey of his or her heart.
We pick only those battles we are sure to win, only those adventures we are sure to handle, only those beauties we are sure to rescue. She knows in her quiet center where God dwells that he find her beautiful, has deemed her worthy, and in him, she is enough.
All men die; few men ever really live. I am searching for an even more elusive prey. I am looking for my heart. I have never met a man without one. No matter how good your life may have seemed to you, you live in a broken world full of broken people. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal.
Wrap it careful round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket—safe, dark, motionless, airless—it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. The only place outside Heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers. All Quotes Add A Quote. Books by John Eldredge. Details if other :.

I borrowed a copy of the book and read it in a crowded coffee shop in the middle of an Indiana winter. In it I learned that as a woman, I was designed by God to be a princess who longed to be romanced, reveal her beauty, and play a part in a grand adventure. I'll be honest with you -- it was a pleasant daydream. I think that an overwhelmed, tired college student would take any diversion from her coursework, and if the diversion showed up on a white horse with a sword, so much the better. It was, apparently, God's will. I packed my bag, a little encouraged and a little deluded, and stood up. Then I caught a glimpse of myself in a mirror. It was, I think, God's firm but kind reminder of the reality I was living in. In that mirror I saw who I really was -- a fallen image-bearer of God in a room full of other fallen image-bearers, no better or worse or more worthy of love than any of them. The world did not need my beauty -- in that moment, it needed me to throw away my coffee cup so someone else could relax with a book and hot chocolate at my table for a while.

Dear Friends, It's already February. I want to share a series of encounters I had to get us into the topic of this letter. First, a friend shared with me how much he was enjoying a podcast by a thoughtful NPR commentator, and the nuggets of insight were impressive. A few hours later a different friend mentioned how much they were getting out of another podcast. I'd better do more of that, too.
