Song of Solomon 5:10-16

The man I love is radiant and ruddy; he stands out among ten thousand.
His head is like the finest gold; his locks are wavy and black as raven.
His eyes are like doves by running streams, bathed in milk (almond :-)) and set just right.
His cheeks are like beds of spices, like banks of fragrant herbs.
His lips are like lilies dripping with sweet myrrh.
His arms are like rods of gold set with beryl, his body polished ivory adorned with sapphires.
His legs are like pillars of marble set on bases of pure gold.
His appearance is like the L’vanon, as imposing as cedars.
His words are sweetness itself; he is altogether desirable.
This is my darling, and this is my friend, daughters of Yerushalayim.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is my husband, Samuel. And I love him! Nineteen years ago today he took me as a wife and today I celebrate the meaning.
God has given him to me to love; to love in a way no other will ever love him. The honour of such overwhelms me.

He is all the things spoken in the Scripture and more. More so, that this poetically inclined muse cannot find words to add. God gave me music once to express him, it is the closest I’ve ever come to knowing how to express him. I admit back then it was all God, He wrote Sams soul through my fingers on the black and white keys of a cheap Casio Chord and made it sound like heavens symphony.

He is respected by all who know him. Adored by those who know him. Loved by all who’ve met him. He is Samuel, which means, God has heard. And He does.

Least you think I’ve made him a god among men, let me put your mind at ease. He is fully human, and his weakness are as mighty as his strengths. But those. .. His weaknesses are my treasure alone – save God’s before me; and rightly so. I get to hold those to myself and share them with noone else. They are my hearts delight; even as they often break it. Sweetest music is made in the meadows of his flaws and I lean into our Maker to listen. So noone will hear of reasons to look at him with plainness… he is… amazing. That’s all anyone needs to know. Because the goodness of God flows continually out from him and this is a flow the wife that honors her husband; but more importantly honors Adonai; must never seek to stop. Not even… to – as the world may put it – “make him human”.

I pale in comparison to him. I am a dim light to his bright. It is as it should be, as we – Adonai’s Bride – will never outshine our Savior. And as all marriages reflect (or are meant to) the Messiah and His Followers (church). I am content and am learning not to dare to compare or question any longer. He must out shine me, and as such I shine with him. And our Father smiles… smiles everyday.

Behold how good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together. .. he is my brother, he is my friend, he is my Lover, and my helpmate, my co-conspirator in life, the song in my heart and I sing him today.

♡ Happy Anniversary, my beloved
May God love You!
May He continue to teach me to.
With all my heart, I do love you. Till death do us part – which it never will praise be to God for eternal life! ♡

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah

Loves Fight

(See the Book of Hosea)

This is what My love does
I stand ahead with My Blood flowing red and go before My beloved
I fight for Her
Not with swords of metal or words of shame
But I woo Her with My Love that never counts Her shame
I send Her flowers of grace and mercy
That defies Her guilty past
I send Her boxes of candied sweets
That assures that True Love will last
I act only on the simple Truth
That My Love does not depend
On Her loving Me or any such deed
But simply that My Love is enough
I did not come down to a Bride who sees such Love
I came to the blind and wayward to find
Its all wrapped up in My Love
I see the enemy attempting to woo My Beloved away from Me
And often she goes and gives him her robes
But I then begin on a new one
Never giving up; always believing in all that I have done
Oh My Beloved of Mine you shall always be Mine; no enemy can kidnap you
For all is Mine and doing My will
And I promise Myself I shall not let go of you
Though I do not force you to My heart
I will always make a way for you to come Home
The Light shall shine on no matter the hour
Love that keeps wooing but lets go is Power
Love that keeps holding on from within will win the darkest hour
So it is written; so it shall be done
Because of Love and My precious Son
Love is the Victory
Love is a slave to the unlovely

Banner of Love: Marriage Reflections from Yeshua ~ Part 1

July 28, 2013 at 10:33 pm (Remodeling the Mind) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

Song of Solomon 6:3

I belong to the man I love, and he belongs to me; he pastures his flock among the lilies.

Song of Solomon 7:10

I belong to my darling, and his desire is for me.

Song of Solomon 8:6

Set me like a seal on your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, passion as cruel a Sh’ol; it flashes are flashes of fire, as fierce as the flames of Yah (Elohim).

Many sermons, seminars and classes have been given about marriage. Tips for communication, trouble shooting, conflict resolution, keeping the romance, life after the kids are grown, staying connected while children are young, how to love again after infidelity, and the ever elusive how marriage is representative of God and His church. I have sat through them all my life. I have also watched what Hollywood and the world have “poster-boarded” as “unforgettable love”. I have read countless books, both fiction and non; godly and worldly; articles, blogs, magazines; and nothing compares to what Adonai Elohim (the Lord God), Himself has taught me. Almost turning everything on its head that I had “learned” or thought before. I have heard some similar things before from various other sources…things that capture at best a sliver but then when  turned into a “how to…” for the masses…something gets lost.

So this series starts out by saying

THIS IS NOT A “HOW TO…” have a good marriage.

It simply is a repeating of what I have learned at Yeshua’s feet. He used my marriage, husband, me and our lives to color some of the lessons; but the ultimate goal…like Song of Solomon was to teach me about Himself and His heart towards His Beloved Children/Bride. I can tell you without hesitation…if you attempt to implement any “structure” you find here to your marriage with the goal of making it all you want it to be; even if your motives seem pure…this will not work. At all times when we seek to know God’s heart about something, it must be just to know Him more. I.E. – all about Him. In the process of this pursuit He speaks within our individual lives and indeed applies the knowledge and wisdom to our walks with Him and those we love and effect. Yet, God never repeats anything exactly the same way twice. Every blade of grass from the beginning of creation till now has been different from one to another. Every sunset/sunrise, every flower, grain of sand…everything is distinct and different under His loving formation. So, too, is every child, every marriage. Yet we see something similar in all things…most grass is green, the sun is present in each rise and set, every grain of sand has a firmness to it and they are small. These represent their Maker’s hallmark…all things are because of Him. His banner over us is love. Everyone, everything all the time.

No human loves because it comes from them…love only comes from God. Yes, this means those who don’t acknowledge Him indeed get love to give to another. One thing all the Word of God proves – God shows up everywhere it depends not one iota whether we believe, trust or desire Him or not. The difference between those who do trust and desire Him and those who do not…is: they who desire and trust the Author of Life and Love…love even in the most despicable situations…their love grows stronger with weakness and failure and this growing starts first inside each person with God and flows out to all other places, people and things.

Those who love God above all else become the love of God in all things. The hallmarks are the love of giving with no thought to what it gets. It let’s people be different without intimidation or fear. It never depends on another human being…ever. That may sound too “individualistic” to some…but those whose hearts have been tudored by Love Himself know it has nothing to do with the “I don’t need anybody” motif this world twist such teaching into. I do indeed need those God has placed in my life, but only so much as He extends His hand to “feed” me through them: in the end it all comes from Him alone. Often He asks us to refrain from seeking out a loved one in order that we may experience the intimacy that was meant for just between ourselves and our Creator. Humanly speaking these times are held in the grip of much struggle. We die to ourselves and live to Him as the result.

This is the introduction of this series; I’ve no idea how many parts it may end up being. I will follow His lead, and no other. His pace will be the pace. And I pray with a full heart of humility that the words only come from Him, through His Spirit to His people as He has always worked for times past and times into the unknown. There will be nothing here that speaks “Lisa” or “Hisimagenme”, the wisdom is not mine but His. He can teach anyone the exact same things in billions of different ways. The requirement for the depth of learning from Him is just that…we aim to. With all our hearts, times, energy and resources – everyday for eternity. I am special and unique to Him but not better or more privileged than anyone else. I am honored to share what I have learned…excited even…but only with the hopes that you may know Him who made us – Adonai Elohim, the Father, the Son – Yeshua (Jesus) who is the Way to the Father and the Spirit who opens the ears, eyes, hearts and minds to the Creator of all things in order to know Him.

May you begin to pray for His lead, and His desire for your heart as you move into each part of this series. If you do, I guarantee that you will get more than the words that get typed here…He will extend the lessons and leading straight onto eternity for you. In Him, with Him and to Him all things become alive and active, separating fact from fiction, truth from lies, life from death – changing water into wine and bread…into the very body of the Messiah who saves! Shalom 🙂

Worthy is the Lamb!

Revelation 5:6-14

Then I saw standing there with the throne and the four living beings, in the circle of elders, a Lamb that appeared to have been slaughtered. He had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the sevenfold Spirit of God sent out into all the earth. He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of the One sitting on the Throne. When He took the scroll, the four living beings and the twenty-four elders fell down in front of the Lamb. Each one held a harp and gold bowls filled with pieces of incense, which are the prayers of God’s people; and they sang a new song,

   “You are worthy to take the scroll and break its seals; because You were slaughtered; at the cost of blood You ransomed for God persons from every tribe, language, people and nation. You made them into a Kingdom for God to rule, cohanim (priest) to serve Him; and they will rule over the earth.”

Then I looked, and I heard the sound of a vast number of angels – thousands and thousands, millions and millions! They were all around the Throne, the living beings and elders; and they shouted out,

    “Worthy is the slaughtered Lamb to receive power, riches, wisdom, strength, honor, glory and praise!”

And I heard every creature in heaven, on earth, under the earth and on the sea – yes everything in them – saying,

     “To the One sitting on the Throne and to the Lamb belong praise, honor, glory and power forever and ever!”

The four living beings said, “Amen!’ and the elders fell down and worshipped.

May we join them…

May we join them? A little check inside my spirit rings like a little service bell. Can I join them? With pre-occupation with how I do, when I do, what I do, if I do for Him? Is then the focus on the Bride or the Bridegroom? On the garment she wears or the crown on His Head? Focus on Him? Or focus on Him in me?

Ahhh, here He is! Here He is enthroned in my heart leading me into the Truth! Cascading my countenance to His glory!

Little checks (√) in the heart are His specialty! They call us out on the water to Him! There we “fall in” and join all of heaven and all creation in worship of…

WORTHY IS THE LAMB!

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
