The Shulamite Seeks Her True Love "By night on my bed, I sought the one I love; I sought him but did not find him. "I will rise now," I said, "and go about the city; in the streets and the squares, I will seek the one I love." I sought him, but I did not find him. The watchmen who go about the city found me. I said, "Have you seen the one I love?"(Song of Solomon 3:1-3)
I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, by the gazelles or the does of the field, do not stir up nor awaken love until it pleases. Song of Solomon 3:5
True Love Speaks to Your Soul
He connects with her innermost being; he listens intently. With compassion, he searches for the wounded child in her. Oh, how he longs to hold and comfort her; she looks away, ashamed he might see the raging sea within her. Yet, with his tender voice, he calms her soul. He is the eye of the storm, the calm steadfast love. She felt safe; he heard her cries in the night.
He gives her a new name no one knows; he calls her by the name he gave her, just between the two as a token of affection, an oath to God, a healing balm from the wounds of her past.
He draws from her well; he wants to know her deepest desires. He cleanses her from the muddy waters. The springs were blocked, and the fountain sealed. As a result, she finds her flow from within her again. He taps into her talents and awakens the things that have long been asleep. The breath of life he blows into the things long dead, her dry bones rise again, the dreams slayed by wicked men have risen again.
A fountain in the gardens of her heart waters the dry arid land, a well of living waters spills over, and streams wash over her and awaken a new life, no longer dormant. Her buds awaken and bloom in her fields of dreams. He tenderly unwraps the gifts within her, lovingly polishes them with words of kindness, and draws her out from the depths for all to see the woman of God suited in armor and girded with truth. She walks in peace with a shield of faith and the sword of the Spirit; she slays the enemy of her soul. Who is her lover, the lover of her soul? The King, the Lord Almighty, The Mighty Warrior, has set her free!
Rise Women of God, God’s Perfect Love Speaks to your Soul. The devil sends wicked men to derail you from the man God intends for you because he knows how powerful a man and woman of God are together. Husbands and wives who seek the Lord, the devil wants to divide and conquer, don’t fall for his schemes. Instead, seek the Lord and His strength. Your gifts united in the Spirit of Truth overpowers the methods of the evil one in the heavenly places.
