Today's Passage: Song of Songs 3:1-11
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
(An aside: this book is a unified lyrical poem composed of a variety of songs.
Jesus never quoted from this scripture, but can you find phrases throughout the book that you have heard all of your life?)
1. One night as I lay in bed, I yearned for my lover.
I yearned for him, but he did not come.
2. So I said to myself, "I will get up and roam the city,
searching in all its streets and squares.
I will search for the one I love."
So I searched everywhere but did not find him.
3. The watchmen stopped me as they made their rounds,
and I asked, "Have you seen the one I love?"
4. Then scarcely had I left them when I found my love!
I caught and held him tightly, then I brought him to my mother's house,
into my mother's bed, where I had been conceived.
5. Promise me, O women of Jerusalem, by the gazelles and wild deer,
not to awaken love until the time is right.
Young Women of Jerusalem
6. Who is this sweeping in from the wilderness like a cloud of smoke?
Who is it, fragrant with myrrh and frankincense and every kind of spice?
7. Look, it is Solomon's carriage, surrounded by sixty heroic men,
the best of Israel's soldiers.
8. They are all skilled swordsmen, experienced warriors.
Each wears a sword on his thigh,
ready to defend the king against an attack in the night.
9. King Solomon's carriage is built of wood imported from Lebanon.
10. Its posts are silver, its canopy gold; its cushions are purple.
It was decorated with love by the young women of Jerusalem.
11. Come out to see King Solomon, young women of Jerusalem.
He wears the crown his mother gave him on his wedding day, his most joyous day.
Song of Songs 3:1-11 NLT
Reading... Simple Act of Meditation
Simple acts of meditation are not difficult.
If they were difficult God would not encourage every person to do them.
They are sometimes uncomfortable.
But they are always profitable.
They bring us closer to the heart of God. We are to Hide His Words In Our Hearts.
We enter into your Word Abba.
Sometimes we don't understand why you write these words.
But we step out in faith and ask you to reveal your reasons and your meaning.
We know that you are here.
And we know that you are pleased with our desire to be here with you.
Let us soak up your presence.
In your name we pray
Thank you for coming here today.
Please leave your name and your last initial.
Trust God in this passage.
And I'll be back again tomorrow.
I hope you will too.
Blessings on your day.
Robyn and Biff
