The world pulls us this way, that way.
Men and women need to make a living to support their families. They are sometimes gone a lot. Busyness takes over. The honeymoon is over. Real life sets in.
My lover has gone down to his garden, to the beds of spices, to feed in the gardens and to gather lilies. (Song of Songs 6:2 NCV)
Her friends notice she is alone a lot.
Are they concerned or being sarcastic when they ask...
Where has your lover gone, most beautiful of women? Which way did your lover turn? We will look for him with you.
(Song of Songs 6:1 NCV)
She seems confident when she says:
I belong to my lover, and my lover belongs to me. He feeds among the lilies. (Song of Songs 6:3 NCV)
Is she confident, or is she trying to convince herself as well as them.
It seems he may sense some insecureness on her part. When he comes home, he reassures her ...
There may be sixty queens and eighty slave women and so many girls you cannot count them, but there is only one like my dove, my perfect one.
She is her mother’s only daughter, the brightest of the one who gave her birth.
The young women saw her and called her happy; the queens and the slave women also praised her.
(Song of Songs 6:8, 9 NCV)
A woman needs to feel honored above all other women in her husbands eyes.
With the hundreds of wives and concubines Solomon had, this may have seemed an overwhelming task for Solomon to do.
He reassures her:
I went down into the orchard of nut trees to see the blossoms of the valley, to look for buds on the vines, to see if the pomegranate trees had bloomed. (Song of Songs 6:11 NCV)
He begins to romance her...
My darling, you are as beautiful as the city of Tirzah, as lovely as the city of Jerusalem, like an army flying flags.
Turn your eyes from me, because they excite me too much.
Your hair is like a flock of goats streaming down Mount Gilead. Your teeth are white like sheep just coming from their bath; each one has a twin, and none of them is missing.
Your cheeks behind your veil are like slices of a pomegranate. but there is only one like my dove, my perfect one.
(Song of Songs 6:4-7, NCV)
Maybe it's because of jealousy, insecureness, or just because Satan steps in to come between this relationship, but it looks like she leaves him.
AHe calls to her..
Come back, come back, woman of Shulam. Come back, come back, so we may look at you!
(Song of Songs 6:13a NCV)
In our relationship with our spouse on earth and with our Heavenly Father -be aware of Satan's plots to undermine those relationships!
If he can destroy the family he can carry out his mission!
Just forgive each other!
God forgives you!
Don't look back!
The Shulamite is encouraged to dance!
Dance, dance, dear Shulammite, Angel-Princess!
Dance, and we'll feast our eyes on your grace!
Everyone wants to see the Shulammite dance her victory dances of love and peace.
(Song of Solomon 6:13 MSG)
Dancing worshiping, praising God...
This must bring great joy to God, victory for us and defeat for the enemy!
I wonder if Gods angels aren't on the sidelines cheer leading for us, yelling for us to DANCE!
You got something to dance about!
You can leave, be angry, give them what they deserve, but I'm hoping YOU don't leave, I'm hoping you do that victory dance instead!
