Your lover approaches! Yet for some, your head is bowed with shame and unworthiness – so much so that you can’t even look Him in the eye. Gently, oh so very gently, He lifts your head and gazes into your eyes… but even then you avert your eyes. Finally, you take a chance and look.
There in the depths of His eyes you see such love: such deep, deep pools of love. You are transfixed, knowing that you are forgiven, that you are loved and that you are accepted. In that moment all the longings of your heart are stirred and there you surrender to the lover of your soul. He very slowly lowers His lips to yours and in that kiss, all the love of heaven is released to your very core.
No longer abandoned, no longer rejected, no longer alone but fully restored to your true identity in Him!
Song of Songs 1:2
Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth – for your love is more delightful than wine.
