I want Jesus. But, also a husband. And kids. And a job. And an apartment. And, maybe a dog.

I want Jesus to come back.

I want to see Him, unveiled, face to face.

I want to live in the Kingdom illuminated by His glory and paved by streets of gold.

I want to experience Jesus’ perfect goodness, His deeper goodness.

 

But, I also want to get engaged. I want to experience the moment when that guy gets down on one knee and pops that long-awaited question, “Will you marry me?”

I want to get married. I want to plan my wedding, I want to pick out my dress, the flowers, the bridesmaids dresses, and I want to walk down the aisle, and finally say, “I do.”

I want to have kids. I want to experience pregnancy and pick out baby names and decorate the nursery with light blue or gentle pink.

I want to tell my kids about Jesus and treasure the sweet moments of tucking them in, making them breakfast, asking them how their day was after school.

I want to graduate college and strive to get a real-world, full time job. (Okay, confession, I just want to dress business-casual and walk in with a latte every day.)

I want to travel; I want to get my first apartment; I want to have dinner parties; I want to experience the things that our hearts hope for here in this life.

 

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with wanting those things.

I mean, our sweet Jesus put certain passions and desires in our hearts, like marriage, and motherhood, and community.

But, I think the trouble comes when we want those things more than we want Jesus.

That used to be me.

 

It’s hard, friends. It’s really hard. My heart was so convicted about this.

The idea of engagement, of marriage, of kids, of jobs, of life in general just seemed SO sweet. And so good. And so satisfying.

But the Lord has laid this on my heart: those things all simply point us to Jesus.

Jesus is the point of it all.

And Jesus is the giver of it all.

 

Jesus gives us marriage to show us a glimpse of Christ’s devotion to his Church. The male, the protector, the leader is like Christ. The female, the bride, is like the Church. Unconditional love. Relentless pursuit. Fullness of intimacy. Jesus and Church.

Jesus gives us little kiddos to show us a glimpse of the Father’s love for us. The way mommies and daddies love their kids is but a small example of how the Father loves us.

Jesus gives us friends and community to encourage each other, to love each other as brothers and sisters in Christ, to carry each other’s burdens, and to walk each other home: to our heavenly home.

 

The desire for these things is good. It really is. Our sweet Jesus can totally be glorified in all of these things.

But we have to understand that ultimately, it’s all about Jesus, it’s all because of Jesus, it’s all for Jesus.

 

Friends, hear this: When the reality of how completely and utterly satisfying Jesus Christ really is, our hearts will yearn for Him.

In the shadow of Jesus Christ’s sweetness, everything else in the world seems surprisingly bland.

In the shadow of Jesus Christ’s light, everything else in the world seems oddly faded.

In the shadow of Jesus Christ’s promises, everything else in the world seems rather fleeting.

Things like marriage, kids, community, traveling are still good, and our hearts will surely find joy in them. But Jesus will just seem more vivid. Brighter. More promising. More satisfying. Deeper. Fuller. More abundant.

 

It’s not about trying to change your heart. It’s not even about priorities, or work, or striving.

It’s about giving your heart to Jesus, and asking him to work in it.

It’s about asking Jesus to show your heart even a glimpse of His sweetness and love.

Because, friends, once we have tasted the glory of Jesus, our hearts will never turn back.

Things will effortlessly fall into the role they are supposed to be:

We will desire marriage, and kids, and traveling, and community. But our hearts will just desire Jesus more.

 

And then, one day, we will just find ourselves saying, “Jesus, come.”

One day, we will just find ourselves understanding the glory that awaits us.

We will long to live in a world with no pain, or discomfort, or mourning. We will long to live in a world where our bodies are restored, and where we can run and not faint. We long to live in a world where our sweet Jesus’ presence is truly, truly unveiled right before our eyes.

It’s a work of the Spirit in our hearts.

 

Sisters, I want to see my guy get on one knee, look into my eyes, and ask me to marry him. (Preferably at night, with city lights in the background, a circular ring.)

Sisters, I want to go wedding dress shopping (sweetheart neckline, sleek top, but some volume on the bottom) and chose the flower arrangements (peonies all the way) and walk down the aisle (lined with flower petals, of course).

Sisters, I want my own little babies (Maverick and Ava), and maybe even a black and white spotted Pomeranian. (Not that I’ve planned it out, or anything.)

But above all of that, I want Jesus.

 

This world isn’t our home. We are foreigners, actually citizens of Heaven.

We have tasted the sweetness of Jesus, like at your favorite gelato shop you can taste the new flavor on a little spoon. But we haven’t gotten the full scoop yet. It’s still coming. We are still waiting, yearning, hoping.

I want my big ‘ol scoop of gelato. (Salted caramel mixed with decadent dark chocolate, please.)

I want my big ‘ol hunk of Jesus.

But, we wait. And pray that He would come soon, like really soon.

 

SO Jesus, come. Come quickly. Because I know that You are so much sweeter than everything of this earth. Because, Your alone satisfy my heart. My soul longs for You.

And, friends, we all say AMEN!

 

With much, much love. And little spoonful of hope. -Melissa

  1. As someone who has been burnt out on God for quite some time now I jus want to say thank you for helping me fall back in love with Jesus. I needed to hear that it’s okay to want a husband, kids, and a successful career but that above all else to want God. Thank you for making this so relateable!

  2. Hi Melissa,
    This article hits home for me with exactly what I have been struggling with. Lately I have been desiring to get married, but then I think about Jesus coming back and secretly hope that I can get married before he comes. Also, I think about heaven and how there isn’t going to be marriage and it causes me to not get excited about heaven. I know that heaven is going to far better than anything we can imagine and that being there with Jesus is what my heart has been truly longing for. Is there anything that you did to help you with desiring Jesus/heaven more than the idea of marriage and everything else? Do you have any advice for this?
    Thank you for your wisdom and your encouragement!
    Sincerely,
    Vivian

      Girl, I feel you. I completely understand where you’re coming from. Especially in a culture that is so indignant on the idea of marriage… it’s hard to keep your heart in the right place. But, man Jesus cares about us and our hearts. I recently was talking to a friend about this, about how I felt like I secretly wanted to get married before the Lord comes back, and said this: “We won’t even think about that once we get to Heaven! We won’t even look back!” That really comforted me- dwelling on the fact that although we don’t know the goodness that awaits us in Heaven, that we can trust that it will be SO good that we will never even think about our trivial desires from this life. Heaven will be so good that we won’t look back!
      Also, it’s a heart issue. And I have found, that with heart issues, we can’t change them ourselves.- it’s the Spirit’s work!
      Praying that Jesus would give you (and me!) a glimpse of His goodness, so our hearts would desperately seek Him above all. AND praying that Jesus would be glorified in the desires HE puts in your heart- (marriage!)
      Much, much love Vivian!
      -Melissa

      One more thing: The guy you marry should point you closer to Jesus, and constantly be reminding you that Jesus is our ultimate lover. Wait for that guy!

    2. Hi Vivian! I struggled for a long time with this as well! I found that once I stopped focusing on MY wants and MY desires but rather focused on serving Christ and others I was able to be comforted by His love. It by no means took away those desires, but it replaced the sadness of being single, not having kids, etc with His joy. I focused my energy on what I could do for Christ in that moment. Anytime I felt myself sliding into the jealousy of a friends relationship or sadness that a friend just got engaged I stopped…thought about how I could refocus my energy to something else. So I would call and check in on another single friend of mine. Or pray for someone I knew needed pray. Anything to take the focus off of me and onto Him. Over time I realized, I wasn’t anxious or sad about being single but rather excited to use my singleness for Him. This post is exactly what so many women need to hear, thanks for sharing your heart Melissa! And Vivian, we will never meet, but know I am praying for you by name.

    3. Vivian–I struggled with this prior to finding my husband and getting married also. And here’s how I finally had peace with it: God designed marriage, God designed sex b/w a husband & wife, God designed the family—as great as all of that is–Heaven is so much more! God designed Heaven for us, His children, as our final destination, with HIM! Our little minds can’t fathom something better than marriage, children, and a family–but God can! Once we get to heaven, we will know. Then we will see how sweet and awesome being in the presence of God is. We will receive the prize. The prize is better than the race. Its what you strive for. Its what propels you to race faster to the end. That prize is Jesus. I promise you–being with HIM will be far better than 1 day on earth with the best husband and kids you could imagine. I know exactly how you feel! I felt the exact same way! And i think that’s completely NORMAL! God knows we can’t see what all is in store for us in Heaven. He knows you desire a family/husband. If He does return before you get to experience that–I know you will not look back with regrets. His ways are perfect. God bless you!!

  4. This is an amazing piece, and I’ve been practically touched by it in so many ways that it’s difficult to turn it into words. Jesus is our savior but sometimes our feelings inside us can become confused and we can think we like something that we actually don’t. That’s why we experiment (college?) LOL.
    I think this was a great illustration of the lords love for us, I talk to him every night in my bed before I go to sleep and he shows me so many new things and opens my eyes to many things that I didn’t think was possible for a man of my convictions.
    Anyways thanks for the read, I appreciate the deep thought!

  10. I am at this point in my life. I have a wonderful Godly husband and two beautiful little girls and while I want them to grow up and dress them for prom, see them fall in love, get married and be happy in life I want to see Jesus return so much more!!! I dream about my little family being called up to meet him. Oh how happy I would be to know we are all going together to meet him!!! To know we don’t have to part anymore or worry for each other anymore. To know my children and husband are completely safe and my nephew will be able to walk and talk when he makes it home. He’ll have no more pain or seizures or scary prognosis given from earthly physicians. But much more than all that to see the one who died for me who made it all possible!!! To feel his peace and worship him forever!!! Is there a shouting in praise emoticon??? When he comes will be the happiest day of my life if he comes during my life time!! If you don’t like shoutin don’t get on my cloud!!! Praise his sweet name!!

  12. I just started classes last week and the very first class I have on Tuesdays and Thursdays is called Prayer Practice (I go to Lincoln Christian University and the professor of the class is Neal Windham… Just a little background for you!). The first thing we talked about, aside from the syllabus, is prayer and desires. Man, that was a much needed class time. We talked about how our desires aren’t all bad. Some of them are desires that God has given us. I also really want to get married. That is a desire that I have had since I was a wee child. My deepest desire is to be close to God, but I have others that I know that aren’t bad, like getting married, having kids, housing 2-3 cats, having my own little place to call home here on earth. I LOVED reading this and it is just what I needed for affirmation. Now, I have to practice patience and continue to love Jesus with my entire being. Thanks!

  31. Dearest Melissa,
    Thank you for your incredible words about our sweet Savior. I have personally read and reread this many times over, and have shared it with so many of my friends. It truly touches my heart every time, and so accurately depicts how much I want Jesus, and how I WANT to want Jesus more than anything on this earth.
    I never want to be a “But, first…” kind of girl. You know, that one that says, “Sweet Jesus, come home, but first, let me get married.” Or, “Beloved Jesus, please come quickly, but first, let me have kids.” The desire for me to finally be with Him has to be so much greater than my desire for the earthly things.
    One of my favorite quotes is actually something my grandfather (the kindest man on the planet) told me. “Christy, you have to live with a heavenly mentality, but a good head on your shoulders and your feet on the ground.” I want the glory of Heaven to be my greatest motivation, my sole longing. Everything else falls into place when it is.
    Thank you, again.

  32. My 19 yr old daughter posted this and I was truly surprised. I, as a child, was baptized when I was 7 at bible camp and still have the bible they gave me signed by my pastor with my name in gold on the cover. I grew up in church all my childhood. I lived the Christian life and put God first. I couldn’t wait for the church bus to pick me up on Wednesday nights and my aunt to get me ready for Sunday service. I always had the prettiest dresses and I was taught how to behave and listen in church. I was raised by old fashioned aunts, a bunch of uncles and 2 older brothers along with the best grandparents a child could ask for. My mother was not a church going person but she prayed and believed in him. She was a southern baptist. I didn’t k ow the difference then and still don’t to this day. When I was 8, my mother married my 2nd step dad whom aas a control freak and alcoholic. I wasn’t allowed to attend church anymore unless my aunt picked me up or I said I was going to my friends house and went on Wednesday evenings. It had got to the point I wasn’t allowed to go anywhere except my grandparents house. So, I lost connection to the church and I thought God. My step dad hit my mom and I witnessed things a child should not have to see. I lost my way with God. I am not 41 and I have been back in church since I was 19! Sure, I have stumbled along the way and did not live the way God wants us too but I still pray and believe in him. I believe I was put in this earth to help others and that is exactly what I do.
