chronological day 155 :)

Today we are reading Song of Solomon in its entirety.  Ready, set go!

155

I’m glad to have this entire book over in one day! Solomon gives us a beautiful picture of love within marriage, some can also be applied to God’s love for us (how fierce, how protective….)

“Love is invincible facing danger and death.
    Passion laughs at the terrors of hell.
The fire of love stops at nothing—
    it sweeps everything before it.
Flood waters can’t drown love,
    torrents of rain can’t put it out” (Song 8:6-7 MSG)

God’s love for us is so strong, and sets such an example!

(but if I’m being honest, some of Song of Solomon is a little weird for me!  Anyone else ready to move on?) Leave a comment – especially if you have an insight to share!

    In younger years when talk of intimacy was more taboo in my family environment, Song of Songs did seem weird. However I have been taught to see it differently. The intensity of God’s love is described there- God’s pursuit of man even when he doesn’t want to be found. The beauty God sees in his creation, described in rapt detail. The strongest language indicating what a lover feels for his beloved. To have a creator see us with that focused intensity – may make our puritanical minds uncomfortable. It is absolute giving Complete receiving. A look into the reality of God that we often discard or are not willing to consider. I think it’s a powerful book and good reminder when we need to consider the overwhelming relentlessness of Love.
