Have you ever tasted something that was so good you enjoyed every piece of it and savored the very last crumb? The last crumb from a delicious dessert can be quite satisfying.
Have you every been so hungry that you would give anything to have a few crumbs just to hold you over? When you’re starving the idea of having crumbs to savor seems so satisfying. But reality is crumbs can only hold you over, they are not enough to fill you.
Food is not the only thing we savor.
There are many people who are in a state of brokenness longing for the company of another. They struggle with emptiness and loneliness and would do anything to escape the feelings of abandonment or neglect.
When someone is neglected they crave every crumb of affection they can get. Just like a neglected puppy craves attention from anyone who will love him. Not only do we crave the crumbs but sometimes we feel like one. I recall a time when a relationship I treasured ended. I couldn’t understand what I did wrong and that unknown made me feel like I held no value to the person.
While some savor the last crumb of their meal others throw away their crumbs. Crumbs can be satisfying to one person yet worthless to another.
If you’re facing any type of rejection know that you are not worthless. It took me a little bit of time to realize that my value was not tied to the person that left me. If you are in this place or in a place of loneliness or longing, I pray that you will know that you are treasured and loved.
