Want... not just Need

So this morning in the midst of... well me, I remembered an old gospel song that [to me] is the best gospel love/worship song I knew while growing up.

There's a part that says "I just want to be where you are, dwelling daily in your presence.... I just want to be, I just want to be with You."

WANT! Not just need... but WANT! There’s an actual desire at work here.

Need is out of necessity. When you are ill, you NEED to take anti-biotics, there's no choice there. But WANT implies free-will/choice/desire. I want to spend time with you. I want to go out of my way for your sake - there's no real necessity but I choose to because of the love that I have for you!

Now don't twist my words – I’m not saying that you shouldn't need people, please not at all, but wanting is a desire that you can run to with both hands open.

People need God - Y? Fear of hell? Need a miracle? How bout just… wanting God?
You need your guy/girl - Y? They make you "complete"? (And PS: no mortal should ever have that power) For show? Y do u need them? When was the last time you just WANTED them? Just because...

Want - free will/choice... desire!
Need - necessity/must have! Yes the two are partners but WANT fuels the NEED...
Want more!
