Come With Me

2015-07-21 16.39.49Come with me.

I’m here,
calling to you.
I have come for you,
looking
to find where you are.

I love you.

I long for you to come with me.
All I have promised has come true.
Even the fig trees are now budding,
and I know
how you’ve clung on
while they didn’t,
I really do.

I’m here.

I love you.
Come with me
on this journey
of love
and life
together.

O Love That Will Not Let Me Go

Song of Solomon 2:8-13 (CEV)

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.

Let’s Go

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

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
