In the Song of the Prophet, we learn that affection doesn't happen in isolation, it happens in relationship with others. However, the moments when our soul is deeply affected by the Lord's divine presence, the song of all songs does just that to our spirits.
God graciously gave the wisest man that ever lived, a revelation of love. A love that's real and not just a passing lustful thought. A love where growth and maturity are free to exists through both pain and promise. Free from rejection and shame.
The Songs of Solomon give us a map of what love can become through the eyes of God. Each phrase and each verse, is the language of what heaven feels about those who are called. Language is such a beautiful gift from our Lord that expresses many multi facet emotions.
These eight chapters are an invitation to sit at His feet like Mary. The Song of the Prophet shows us that the ways of God make abandonment the only way to live. Giving our Lord everything isn't weighed because of what we might loose, Jesus gave us His all. So we give all.
