I will waste my life...

"A woman's heart should be so lost in God, that a man must be seeking the Lord to find it..."
I've seen and heard this statement a lot, 2 or 3 times today alone, and it took me awhile to comprehend it. How can our hearts be that lost in God? How possible is it? I thought about it and still am pondering it, because the thought completely blows my mind...How my heart, the heart of a sinner, the heart of a liar & a thief, can be so wanted and desired by the Creator of the universe, by the Maker of all matter and time, of life, & beating God, my God. Just the thought of Him being jealous for me, leaves me awestrucken. When I think about it, it leaves me one else can steal my heart the way He does, and no one ever will, no one else can make my heart skip a beat when I think about their love. Tests and trials will come, and we as mere humans fail those tests sometimes, and even though we do, God never looks down on us or stops loving us the way man does sometimes, who else would endure all Jesus did, the way He did because of that overwhelming love for us? The love of God is true, it never fails.

"...I will waste my life I'll be tested and tried,
With no regrets inside of me to find I'm at Your feet.

I'll leave my father's house and I'll leave my mother,
I'll leave all I have known and I'll have no other.

I am in love with You There is no cost,
I am in love with You There is no loss,
I am in love with You I want to take Your name,
I am in love with You I want to cling to You Jesus,
Just let me cling to You Jesus.

I'll say goodbye to my father my mother,
I'll turn my back on every other lover and
I'll press on, yes I'll press on..."
