"God wants to be wanted" -tozer

God wants to be loved. He wants to be a priority to someone. from cover to cover, from beginning to end, the cry of God's heart is, "why won't you choose me?"

God longs to be desired. just as women long to be desired. this is not some weakness or insecurity on the part of women. "take me for longing, or leave me behind" - allison krauss. God feels the same way

one of the deepest ways a woman bears the image of God is in her mystery, 'something to be explored.' 'it is the glory of God to conceal a matter. to search out a matter is the glory of kings' (prov 25:2)

God yearns to be known. but he wants to be sought after by those who would know him. God does not throw himself at any passerby. if you would know him -you must love him; you must seek him with your whole heart. 'you cannot simply have me. you must seek my, pursue me. i wont let you in unless i know you love me.'

I really like what you said about God wanting to be wanted in the same way a woman wants to be wanted. The longing. There are ways a man can (finitely) understand God but I don't know many men who want to be longed for. Well done.
