“Arise my darling, my beautiful one, and come away with me, See the winter is past, the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.” Song of Songs 2:10-13 NIV
This may be the winter of your life BUT this verse is calling those things that are not as though they were! The Father sees the fruit that has been born, the way you exude the fragrance of LIFE. He is leaning over you, hand outstretched, lifting you up, raising you up, banishing the languishing soul and causing hope to arise! You skip with Him, singing your love songs to Him, praising Him for the marvelous work He has done in your body so you are without spot or blemish!
No more languishing, no more being bereft of hope.
I have plans and purposes for you and I will fulfill My purposes in you and for you.
Beautiful one, you are precious in My sight.
Beautiful and altogether lovely you are to Me.
In your weakness, I come that I may be your strength, strong tower and place of refuge.
Will you allow My love to cascade over you
I visit the earth; I come to you, My beloved, beautiful one
Your heart is My resting place
Let the rains of Life enrich you, prepare you for growth; prepare you to incubate My seed within.
My seed will bring forth grain. It is the purpose of the seed.
I bless its growth within you beloved.
Death and darkness cannot abide in the shining brightness of My Light and Life.
Arise, beautiful one, arise to the new life of songs in the night
Languish no more, let hope arise for surely My word is Life to those who hear.
Make My praise glorious on your lips, beloved; shout your praise to Me!
Tell Me how awe-inspiring are My works. The enemy shall cringe before you at the mention of My Name!
I will not turn My face from you, nor let My ears be deaf to your cries. My faithful love shall never depart from you.
I have bound Myself to you, beautiful one. My blood has made you whole, every sickness and disease healed in My Name.
Arise, beautiful one, arise! Take My hand and I will lead you in a dance of intimate love.
My love for you knows no bounds, I want to drench you with My endless, awe-inspiring love.
Take My hand, rise up fair one, the winter has past, the rains have watered the ground in your heart.
Flowers grow, you are even more beautiful and your heartsong thrills My heart by its unending praise.
Peace is yours in full measure. Peace is My gift to you and your life shall bear fruit and exude the glorious fragrance of Life!
Arise, My beautiful one, arise to new life in Me ~ hope abounding, abundant in your soul.
You are thoroughly and completely known and absolutely and totally loved!
***dedicated to my beautiful sister and friend, Yuka Nakada. I love you.
With you in the palm of His hand,
