You want to be accepted.

Actually, you crave far more than mere acceptance.

You yearn to be celebrated!

When a 7 year old says to their parents, “Watch this!” The reaction they long for is, “WOW! That’s fantastic! That’s the most incredible thing I’ve ever seen! You’re amazing!!”

We NEVER “outgrow” this!

Matter of fact, Jesus commands us to retain this childlike pining! (see Mark 10:15).

Perhaps the BIGGEST question is… where will you seek and find the celebratory response you so desperately yearn for?

Your parents cannot ultimately satisfy this hunger (see Isaiah 49:15).

Your friends cannot fulfill your desire in this department.

Your spouse cannot be your primary outlet for this prodigious appetite for affirmation.

You need to be celebrated!

God wired you to WANT this.

And God Himself is the ONE (and only one) who will ultimately, infinitely, and eternally provide for this essential and voracious desire!

Read Zephaniah 3:17; Isaiah 66:12; Luke 15:22-24; and Nehemiah 8:9-12 and develop a personal addiction to the FACT that God insists on CELEBRATING YOU!
