Waking up to sun beams on your face through a tent and a day of adventure ahead of you is a feeling that I love! The water lapping up against my toes and my bible on my lap as I sit lakeside is another feeling that is hard to beat! “How could one ever bore of life?!” I muse to myself as the sunlight bounces off of a ripple creating a sparkling dance upon the water that I gaze upon. I am perched quietly on a rock about two or so feet from the shore, toes in the water, face hot from the sun. Of course in typical Regan fashion I began pondering!
I was in a slightly romantic kinda mood so I decided to read in Song of Solomon that morning. *cheesy smile* Well… as I was reading the song I came across this verse “Sustain me with raisins; refresh me with apples, for I am sick with love.” SofS 2:5 Now when I read Song of Solomon I read it as a love letter.. From God to me… yes there's some awkward parts but for some examples of stuff that makes my heart melt:
-Draw me after you; let us run.- SofS 1:4a
-Behold, you are beautiful, my love; behold, you are beautiful; your eyes are doves.- SofS 1:15
-My beloved speaks and says to me: “Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come away,- SofS 2:10
-You have captivated my heart, my sister, my bride; you have captivated my heart with one glance of your eyes, with one jewel of your necklace. -SofS 4:9
Sigh is that not just beautiful! Anyway I got stuck on the part where it says “for I am sick with love.”. Wow Jesus is lovesick for His bride! He wants to be with her! As I sat there on the rock I thought to myself… ‘Do I know what it is like to be love sick?’ I probably don’t know to the extent that some people do, and I can only imagine what it looks like when Jesus is sick with love… such a beautiful thought! He sees you and he loves you with all of His heart… He is overwhelmed with love for His bride! He desires that you live with Him forever! He wants you! YOU!
