“I have come to my garden, my sister, my spouse, I have gathered my myrrh with my spice. I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey; I have drunk my wine with my milk. (To His Friends) Eat, O friends! Drink, yes, drink deeply, O beloved ones!” (Song of Solomon, 5:1).
Jesus celebrates over you. He has invited His friends to come take a look at His beauty, His Masterpiece! Recently a woman called me a list of very bad names. As she was speaking, I thought to myself, “I don’t see myself like that at all.” Then the Lord spoke in my heart. “People can think all kinds of things. What is important is to think what I think.” He said He thought of me as His Masterpiece. He thinks the same of you.
Song of Solomon, Chapter Four
It would be sacrilege to break this chapter into parts because it’s Jesus speaking about us—His dearly beloved. Read this entire chapter while inserting your name into the sentences. Here’s what I mean:
The Song of Solomon is a letter of Passion about His loved one, the one He is building into being His Masterpiece. That’s you! His Masterpiece. When He is finished forming you here on earth and taking your hand, leading you into heaven, you will be His Masterpiece, and He wants you to know this right now. See yourself as His Masterpiece.
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
