Song of Solomon (Chapter 1) – A Love Better Than Wine — 9 Comments

  1.  this is such a good good passage.  i love what you shared from bickle’s book on the 7 longings of the human heart… that has been on my “to read” list for a long time and i think it is time i get around to reading it.  i felt like i could connect with each of those longings listed above.  thanks so much for sharing this.  very encouraging tonight.

  2. Good Word here. His love is better, far better than anything the world has to offer. But until we taste if for ourselves,, continually, we will never truly know. Let’s continue to experience His love. 

  3. I too have a hard time relating Jesus to the husband, just because of the sensuality of it. But the deeper you dig into this the more is revealed in a whole new light. A deeper, profound understanding of love that really is revealed in a marriage of an old couple. The love is deep, in a non sexual way. 

    I am not linking up as God is not opening my mind to anything. Kind of frustrating as I really would love to dig here but I am coming up blank! :s


  4. Sometimes, because of our worldly natures, I think we misconstrue desire with sensuality. It’s even easy to do that with this book, Song of Solomon. Looking at it in the context of Jesus speaking to us, these verses in chapter one, show us that the longings and desires of our hearts are so much more than that base need. The only way we’re ever going to be satisfied is to allow Jesus into our hearts and let God fulfill us. When we bare our souls to Him, He fills us so completely. It’s such a simple step to take, yet a long journey to get there, isn’t it?

    Thanks for the wonderful explanation today. It’s opened my eyes to this chapter, seeing it with a fresh perspective. I’m loving how God is speaking to me! I am forever humbled by it. Happy Wednesday! 🙂

    • I remember when I first began to read this book years ago.  I would be a little embarrassed by it.  Looking at it as Jesus, the Bridegroom speaking us the Church, his beloved Bride, just brings so much fresh revelation.  So thankful you are enjoying the journey.  I pop over to your blog soon!  Thanks for linking up!

  5. I love it Barbie!  You MUST hear Heather Clark’s song with this scripture.  Have you heard it?  I can hear her voice singing as I’m reading your post.
