This newfound confidence may cause the recipient of being wanted to dress more daring, be bold, be more outspoken and feel beautiful. Being wanted romantically brings about good vibes, social acceptance, and feelings of being desired. All these feelings come from the root from just being wanted, it’s just the idea that someone is wanted by someone else.
Being wanted by someone else should not be the only reason for an individual to feel beautiful loved, and special. According to scripture in the bible KJV, there is someone that you are always wanted by, because they created you. Scripture reads in Ephesians 1:3-4, Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. The passage explains just how much those that God loves are wanted, so much so that God has chosen his people to be holy and blameless in his sight before he created the world. So, if there is ever an occasion that you don’t feel wanted by someone, always remember how much you are loved and wanted by Christ. I Will, Will You?
