“You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in You.” - Saint Augustine
Nothing and no one will ever satisfy the longings of our hearts, except God. We only love people in and through God. People only exist because God created them, He willed them into existence. When we put the creature above The Creator, we will never be satisfied. Created beings cannot fulfill our hearts that were made by The Creator, for The Creator. Only God can fulfill the human heart He created. When we love God above all, our relationships become rightly ordered, and we are able to love the way God intended us to; to love only because He loved us first.
Love God through your husband.
Love God through your children.
Love God through your family.
Love God through your friends.
Jesus can be for you, whoever you need Him to be. Whatever it is you need, let God be that for you.
Women who long for marriage, take up a devotion to Christ The Bridegroom. Women who long for a baby, take up a devotion to Baby Jesus. Women who long for a Father, let Jesus take you to The Father. The beauty of God, is that He is all-in all; God meets all of our needs. The Blessed Virgin Mary, being the role-model for women, fulfilled Her role of receptivity to God wholeheartedly and perfectly. Mary is Daughter of The Father, Mother of The Son, and Spouse of The Spirit. God was all in all to Her, and He should be all in all for us too. Whatever it is that you need, Jesus can fulfill that role for you; if you but let Him. True satisfaction can only be found in Christ alone.
