Recently I have been studying Song of Songs and Song of Songs 1:13 always draws me to Christ.
One time I was going through a terrible time praying for direction as to whether to leave my position at a church or stay and try to hang in there until the situation changed.
In answer to my prayers the Lord took me to this verse. “Arise, My love. My fair one, and come away with Me.”
I was broken. My soul was in great need of repair. Sensing this was my answer, I left that position and took time off to be with the Lord. I had lived through a dark night of the soul. The wounds were great, too great for me to overcome by myself.
For the next few months I spend many hours in His presence. I was so broken that sometimes the best I could do was to put on praise and worship music and lay in His arms. As I allowed His love to cover me I began to heal, forgive and be restored to life. He renewed my life. He gave me a reason to live again!
It is during these dark times I run to Him and hide under the shadow of Almighty God, my Father, my Daddy. (Psalm 91:1) As I draw closer to my loving heavenly Father, He draws closer to me. For it is in Him that I live and breathe and have my being.(Acts 17:28)
If you are going through a dark night of your soul, Jesus offers you the same invitation He offered me. “Arise, My love. My fair one, and come away with Me.” Come to Jesus knowing He loves you. He adores you and wants the best for you. He even knows that He is the only One who can bring life back into your being. He’s waiting. Will you come? Amen!
Blessings on your day!
