Lovers’ Belonging

He’s thinking about me… Always thinking about me. I’m thinking of Him… Always thinking of him in the morning flowers and midnight hours where Heaven’s power is flaming 24/7/365. Be My lover, he says. You belong to Me.

“Whoever belongs to God hears what God says.” John 8:47

You belong to me and I to you. Just like the moon betrothed to the night amidst the tune of endless starlight. Fire beckons fire. Sunrise beckons sunrise. Water beckons water. Sunset beckons sunset to align on the horizon of eternity’s sky wherever the hemisphere brightens the light of God shining at every dimension.

Light finds light. They belong together. Shine together. Thrive together. Designed to weather every hurricane or freezing rain that threatens the fire of their union. Their oneness cannot be unwoven. It’s written in passion’s spoken declaration of love from Heaven’s throne.

“I belong to my Beloved, and His desire is for me.”

Song of Solomon‬ ‭7:10‬ ‭

God desires love with His Beloved.

“God has spoken once, Twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God.” Psalm 62:11

God has the power to choose who his beloved is.

When you fall in love with God, its a natural choice. He knows who loves Him and who doesn’t. Love blossoms from there like a fragrant garden created to nurture him and satisfy you from His love He pours out.

Forever you belong to me, and I to you.

My beloved is mine, and I am his.
He feeds his flock among the lilies.”

Song of Solomon 2:16

God gives love to those whom He delights.

“Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 37:4‬

Solomon reveled in his lover given from God.

Solomon was a King who abided in the love of God. From an early age, he sought the Lord, grew in wisdom, led with virtue, lived with courage and character. Many women were given to him over his years. But only one captured his heart in such a way that he devoted an entire book to her…

This book is called Song of Solomon.

“The song of songs, which is Solomon’s.” Song of Solomon 1:1

He says his song to her is the “song of songs.” The fire of fires. The lightning of lightning. The waterfall of waterfalls. The best of the best. No other song compared to his own song of love. Why? Because it was his own feelings of love for her poured out. When you love at such high intensity, your words of love engrain themselves into your heart. What you write carries deep, internal meaning and emotion so that it becomes embedded in you.

Love is a gift from God, when you abide in His love with all your heart.

Falling in love comes from the heart of one already in love with God.

Solomon wrote hundreds of proverbs that we glean from in the book of Proverbs. But of all the wisdom he wrote, his favorite is his song about his lover. He calls it the “song of songs.” The best of all his inscriptions.

I love my songs about you…

Love is my favorite written word.

“He brought me to the banqueting house, and His banner over me was love.”
‭‭Song of Solomon‬ ‭2:4‬ ‭

The spirit claims whom its soul loves.

You write about what you’re passionate about. What you’re passionate about seeps out of you and funnels into you, channeling out of you and flowing through you like a cyclical fountain of poetry speaking your heart’s expression. Solomon loved this woman… and he couldn’t help but to enjoy writing about it. To anyone else reading, it was just a song. But to Solomon, it was the Song of Songs. The only song that meant everything to him.

What is your favorite song? Your favorite ballad?

Eternity is mine.

I think of you everytime I play it. My song of songs? Your voice. Anytime you speak. I replay it just to hear you breathe.

The voice of my beloved!
Behold, he comes
Leaping upon the mountains,
Skipping upon the hills.” Song of Solomon 2:8

Solomon comes to her. And she comes to him.

Throughout the whole book we see their love story play out with erotic passion and lover’s love. A love that captivated Solomon’s enchantment. A love that inspired a book of prominence the Biblical canon.

God loves passionate love. He loved Solomon. He literally gave Solomon everything a man could ask for and never expected. God knows how to bless his sons. So he gifts Solomon with this woman and also with the ability to pen his feelings about her, to inspire others.

When you love passionately, you spark a wildfire of love all around you. 

“And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love; but the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13

Love is the greatest gift.

God came because of love.

We move because of love.

Solomon and his lover pursue one another because of love.

My beloved spoke, and said to me:
“Rise up, my love, my fair one,
And come away.
For lo, the winter is past,
The rain is over and gone.
The flowers appear on the earth;
The time of singing has come,
And the voice of the turtledove
Is heard in our land.” Song of Solomon 2:10-12

Be with your lover…

Love beckons you.

Solomon’s lover knew she belonged to him so she feels the freedom of pouring out heart utterings of love for him, and no other. He is the one and only lover of her heart’s desire. Loyalty and allegiance to him is natural because of her love for him. She gushes and gushes. He melts and melts. They follow in this love dialogue back and forth for the duration of the story.

”Like a lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.” Song of Solomon 2:2

Like an apple tree among the trees of the woods,
So is my beloved among the young men.
I delight to sit in his shade,
and his fruit is sweet to my taste.” Song of Solomon 2:3

“To sit in his shade” means that she allows him to shine and be King. She celebrates his success and glory, encouraging him all the more. Solomon was King over all of Israel at this time, and this woman knows that. She loves that He is the King. She is confident enough to let Him be King and not try to overpower His authority. She respects his power. A strong woman will celebrate her man and His power. She will cheer him on as he achieves great successes. She constantly affirms him and speaks well of him. She enjoys it when he receives glory.

“Be exalted, O Lord, in your strength! We will sing and praise your power.” Psalm 21:13

A women who celebrates her king is a woman who learned how to celebrate God as God. You must love Jesus and respect His leadership as King before you can properly respect your man. This is where you learn how to give honor.

Loving God teaches you how to love your man with high honor.

When you know you belong to God, you feel confident in the arms of your man because you know He was given by God. When God gives you a gift, nothing takes it from you. You don’t have to fight for it nor earn it. All you have to do it take care of it and nurture it. Love it and sustain it.

Water your gift.

Love your lover.

You don’t have to fight for the lover who already belongs to you. It’s yours. Nothing will change that. Love cannot be extinguished. No matter what someone says or does, nothing can stop love. No one changes how I feel. How I love. How I devote myself. How I channel passion. How I give. How I desire. These feelings are permanent when you fall in love with the one God gave you love for. God’s love is permanent. Therefore, love from him for your lover is also permanent.

God told me to love you

and I do love you

even now

still now

I always will love you

He gave me to you

and you to me

Heaven’s angel wings

 meant to be

lovers forever

How do you dream about me, my love?

I dream about you like the way Eden dreams of its return to New Zion. It’s coming soon. Just like the sunrise awaiting the new day of glistening hues where the mangos swirl with ripened cherries and honeysuckle blooms.

“For Christ’s love compels us…” 2 Corinthians 5:14

The Spirit claims whom its soul loves.

I love you and my Spirit will forever claim you.

I claim you, my love. I only want to belong to you…

You dwell on who you love. How you love. When you love. Why you love.

Love invigorates your mind.

Your mind belongs to whom you love… yield your mind to God so that He will lead you to love the right one.

“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭10:5‬ ‭

Don’t argue with Jesus when He says He loves you…  Let Him say it how He wants to. Obey Jesus and love your lover how He wants you to…

“My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.” John‬ ‭15:12‬ ‭

Jesus loves recklessly.

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7

God gives you a Spirit that aligns with His Spirit.

Thoughts that align with His thoughts.

Love that aligns with His love.

Passion that aligns with His passion.

Solomon wrote this book about his lover because she consumed his thoughts. She occupied his mind. She inspired him to pen their love story. Who you love will consume your thoughts and seep out of your heart’s well of emotions. Whom you love drives your focus.

“Now devote your heart and soul to seeking the Lord your God. Begin to build the sanctuary of the Lord God, so that you may bring the ark of the covenant of the Lord and the sacred articles belonging to God into the temple that will be built for the Name of the Lord.” 1 Chronicles‬ ‭22:19‬ ‭

Build a house for your lover…

Adorn it with your lovers’ belongings. Your lovers’ heart. Your lovers’ soul. Your lovers’ essence.

“The beams of our houses are cedar, and our rafters of fir.” Song of Solomon 1:17

Belonging to the light is the sun revolving high above the stratosphere. It won’t lose it nor remove its flaming ardor of love for its object of affection. Its extension of existence. Its partner in luminescence. It says I belong to you… and you to me.

you belong to me

I belong to you

we were meant to

love into

the new

Heaven and Earth

where the worth

of the light

shows its love

in the sky

I see love in your eyes

Who do you belong to? Your heart knows. Your soul knows. Your Spirit knows. Who do you love? God knows. God sees. God hears the passionate voice of your being’s affections. Love will write the story. For love belongs to lovers.

“So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”

1 Corinthians 13:13
