I began reading my Bible, looking for some love. Wanting to feel cherished and wanted, I remembered where to go. God lead me through the first two chapters of Song of Solomon. Today maybe you are feeling like I was that night, let me give you some of what was given to me. In chapter 2 verses 15-16
“Catch us the foxes, The little foxes that spoil the vines,
For our vines have tender grapes.
My beloved is mine and I am His.
He feeds His flock among the lilies.”
Can we just dig a little deeper into that? Let’s break it apart and begin to understand it a little more. My mama has always said to my four brothers and I, “it’s the little foxes that spoil the vine.” In other words, it is little disagreements and arguments that can ruin your relationship and even your family. Think about that. I hope when the world sees me, they see someone who loved, not someone who worried about the smallest disagreement. Skip to the last two sentences. This part makes me want to rejoice. I am God’s and He is mine, forever and ever, nothing can change that. No amount of disobedience, rebellion or pain can blemish God’s immaculate love. The last line, “He feeds His flock among the lilies” God gives us the best, the lilies. In whatever situation you are in right now, please know that God wants the best for you, He tries to give us the good in life. Maybe your thinking, “You don’t know the pain, Elena” “You cant understand what I am facing” and although this may be truth, I know who does and I can promise you God has no intention to hurt you. You are His and He only has the best intention for you.
On more verse that I loved is 2:12:
“The flowers appear on the earth;
The time of singing has come”
Flowers: growth, beauty, blessing. The goodness is blooming and it is beautiful. “The time of singing” phrase makes me want to sing literally. You see, singing to me is something that can relate to joy. It’s a time of rejoicing over the beauty that has bloomed. Maybe you need that today. Claim it, declare it, Sing it!
Much love my friends, I am headed to the lake on one of the last days of summer but I’ll be thinking about you and praying for this Tuesday in your life.
