Tender and loving Spirit of the living God, encircle Your very precious treasure with Your protective strength and shielding peace. Help me to grasp the incredible depth of Your love by allowing my heart to see how You delight in me in every moment. Jesus, reveal to me the truth that You truly want me with You always and in all ways. Despite the experiences on earth that often fed the lie that I am unwanted, You can lift the veil from my mind so that I recognize the truth of Your desire. My Lord, let Your unhindered desire infiltrate my soul to the darkest depths so that the embers of faith that flicker in those empty places are re-ignited into passionate intimacy with You, O God. Dazzle and romance me, Jesus, for I know it is the longing of Your heart that I become one with Your Spirit. May Your beloved not turn away from Your pursuit. Under the gorgeous rest of Song of Solomon 3:4 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
when I found him whom my soul loves.
I held him, and would not let him go.
Song of Solomon 3:4, ESV
