The Dance of Want

with Ron Deal | December 4, 2019

Remember getting a crush on someone, but you didn't know if they were also interested so you acted coy and tried to find out if they wanted to be wanted by you. That's the dance of want. The first date was great and you hoped for another, but do they? After dating for months, you're thinking of marriage, but are they? This dance can make you insecure and withhold yourself. But that gets you nowhere. Love first. Give first. Sacrifice first. Live out of your want first.
