Maybe they do, maybe they donâ€™t but one of the points in the book is that we need to look to God, our Creator, for the true answer to our nagging questions regarding our worth as a man or a woman. The following quotes illustrate some of what the authors have to say on this topic.
â€A manâ€™s deepest question is, â€˜Do I have what it takes?â€™â€¦. A womanâ€™s is, â€˜Am I lovely?â€™â€¦.We canâ€™t wait until we feel safe to love and inviteâ€¦. God calls us to trust Him and offer our true selvesâ€¦. He wants us to entice, allure and invite others to Jesus by reflecting his glory in our lives. He will give no guarantee that others will respond wellâ€¦. Godâ€™s invitation is to bring our sorrow to Him. To keep our hearts open and alive, and find refuge and healing in His love.”
This book also reminds the reader that God is ultimately the source of validation and fulfillment that we try so hard to find elsewhere. If our focus is on Him and the relationship He desires with us and built us to desire with Him then many of those feelings will be eliminated.
There is so much more to this book and it has created a hunger and thirst in me to pursue the more intimate relationship with my Lord that I have been neglecting. I would recommend this book wholeheartedly. I canâ€™t even begin to put down here all the gems and wealth the authors have managed to fit into this short span of pages. Read Captivating to get the full picture of what these authors have to say and how it can be applied to your own life.
