Mother Teresa wrote this
(a little chunk from “I Thirst for You”) ~
Don’t you realize that your thirst for love is a thirst for me, I who
am Love? I am myself the answer to your deepest desires.
I THIRST FOR YOU . . . Yes, that is the only way to describe my
love for you: I thirst to love you and to be loved by you, that is how
precious you are to me.
• Come to me, and I will fill your heart and heal your wounds.
I will make you a new creation, and give you peace in all your
• You must never doubt my mercy, my acceptance of you, my
desire to forgive, my longing to bless you and live my life in you.
• If you feel unimportant in the eyes of the world, that matters
not at all. For me, there is no one more important than you.
• Open to me, come to me, thirst for me, give me your life —
and I will prove to you how important you are to my heart.
Don’t you realize that my Father already has a perfect plan to
transform your life, beginning from this moment? Trust in me. Ask
me every day to enter and take charge of your life — and I will. I
promise you before my Father in heaven that I will work miracles in
your life. Why would I do this? Because I thirst for you. All I ask is
that you entrust yourself to me completely. I will do all the rest.

Don’t really believe all this? Think it’s too good to be true?
Take one look at the cross, know that Jesus thought of you before He took His last breath and still wanted to die for you
He saw your sin, your distrust, your imperfections and still wanted you.
Look at the sin and know – you are thirsted for. You are loved.
