I am my beloved’s, And my beloved is mine. He feeds his flock among the lilies. Song of Solomon 6:3 NKJV
There is a place only lovers know. It is a place with a different reality. It is a place where we do things we would not normally do. We see things differently. A touch can change a heart. An embrace can bring healing. A kiss can change our world.
Our bodies change. Our hearts can grow cold and calloused. The cares of the world and busyness of life can intrude. We may be left wondering, where has love gone? That is when love must become a choice more than a feeling.
A glance a touch a memory or a simple act of love can bring back the passion that took us to a place we had never known. The place only true lovers know. The day I met Jesus He took me to a place I had never known.
Jesus gave me understanding of things I could not see with my eyes. The touch of God’s spirit changed my heart. His embrace healed my soul. His kiss transformed my world. I feel so deeply in love with Jesus He was all I needed.
The prayer of my heart was for the Lord not to leave me to myself. I cried out to God to put His desires in my heart. I asked him to grant the desires He put in my heart. I was sold out for Jesus!
The cares of the world and the busyness of life intruded. In a time of blessing and prosperity I began trusting in my own resources rather than God’s. I leaned on my own wisdom and understanding instead of turning to the Lord for guidance and direction.
Over time my heart grew cold and calloused. Where was Jesus when I need Him? Did He stop loving me? Had He gone away and left me to myself?
Jesus was right where He has always been. Working in my heart and life to draw me away to a place only He and I know. It is the place where He waters the sheep that have strayed. It is a place of such intimate beauty each of us describe it differently.
The touch of God’s spirit softened my heart. His embraced massaged my soul. His kiss aroused my passion. I am my beloved’s. My beloved’s is mine. He feeds his flock among the lilies!
Jesus wants you to be in love with Him today. Don’t let the cares of this fallen world or the busyness of a meaningless life intrude in your relationship with the Lord. You do not want to be left wondering where the passion of your first love went!
Your love affair with Jesus must be based on a choice rather than a feeling. Feelings come and go. Jesus with never leave you. Whose beloved are you? Is it the one who feeds His flock among the lilies? Or is it another?
Today I choose Jesus because He chose me!
