Chapter-a-Day Song of Solomon 3

Candy_heart Restless in bed and sleepless through the night, I longed for my lover. I wanted him desperately. His absence was painful. Song of Solomon 3:1 (TM)

Part of the human experience is knowing the heady, joyful experience of being "love sick". When your feelings are so strong that you’re sick to be apart from your beloved. That’s what the lover is experiencing in Song of Solomon 3. One of the things I love about this book is that it speaks to God’s delight, acceptance and pleasure of this very important part of life when we often dismiss it as unspiritual, at best, and, at worst, ungodly.

God loves romance. God loves being "in-love". He created us to fall in love and to experience the intensity of feelings and emotion that come with being in love. Yes, it may only be a piece of the relationship – and we must learn to keep our heads about us when our hearts are love-sick – but let’s not forget to enjoy the ride!

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day Song of Solomon 3”

  1. I threw my arms around him and held him tight,
    wouldn’t let him go until I had him home again,
    safe at home beside the fire.
    While as men we all need and desire sex, there are times where your heart needs the intimacy of an embrace and coziness of home. I can relate to that statement above.
