my beautiful one

My Beloved speaks to me:
“Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
          and come away,
for behold, the winter is past;
          the rain is over and gone;
          the flowers appear on the earth;
          the time of singing has come…”
Song of Solomon 2:10-13 
Recently, I was blessed by going away for a weekend for a time of spiritual rejuvenation.  My precious friend Christine shared this verse and wrote this inspiring note:
“My prayer for you this weekend is that you will hear Jesus, your Beloved, calling, ‘Arise, my love my beautiful one and come away with me.’  He is inviting, alluring your heart to the wilderness (of pain and desperation) so that He can meet you there.  He has tender words for you!  Regardless of the inconvenience of pain…the time of singing has come.  Flowers are appearing on your heart as the fertile soil of struggle brings forth life and peace!  REST in His transforming work.  
This weekend is about you and Him.  Lay all other burdens at the foot of the cross and saturate yourself in the Presence of your Servant King!  His plan is often inconvenient and rarely free of pain, but it yields the beautiful fruit of righteousness and intimacy with the living God!”
Therefore, behold, I will allure her and bring her into the wilderness and speak tenderly to her.  Hosea 2:14
