40 DAYS – Time with God – Day 18
by Pat Baxter
When Solomon invites us into the picture of a beautiful woman and a swooning lover saying: Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, come with me, we can imagine the delight that is there: winter is past and all is prepared for the new life to come. We look on with joy in our hearts; happy for the two who have discovered God’s gift.
Take a moment now to think of the delight God also has in us. We are God’s beloved. Could we imagine God saying: ‘Arise my darling, my beautiful one, come with me’? Can you imagine the spring in your step you will have when you remember God’s love for you.
