God created every person with deep longing for beauty, for greatness, for fascination, for 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. To encounter God in these areas is to be fully alive. We are not to repent of these longings, but to repent of seeking to satisfy them outside of our relationship with Jesus.
