Let’s Go

The love of your life comes to call.  Declares their love, and invites you to come with them.  Do you go?

Song of Solomon 2:8-13

Winter Is Past

She Speaks:

I hear the voice
of the one I love,
as he comes leaping
over mountains and hills
    like a deer or a gazelle.
Now he stands outside our wall,
looking through the window
10     and speaking to me.

He Speaks:

My darling, I love you!
Let’s go away together.
11 Winter is past,
the rain has stopped;
12 flowers cover the earth,
it’s time to sing.
The cooing of doves
is heard in our land.
13 Fig trees are bearing fruit,
while blossoms on grapevines
fill the air with perfume.
My darling, I love you!
Let’s go away together.

The Song of Solomon is a love poem, between a man and a woman.  Seen as just that, it is beautiful and moving.  But of course it is in the Bible, so we have to assume it has some greater depth (is an allegory), and the love story of the man and woman is to lead us into greater understanding about God – and his relationship with his people.

God comes to us and speaks to us, calling to us.  Inviting us to come to him.  He loves us and longs for us to join him.

Will you go with God, as he calls you today?

Lord,

I hear your voice,

I feel your love,

calling to me,

longing for me to go with you.

Today,

I answer your call

– you are all I want,

all I need

– I come with you
