Love’s Seal


I have sealed you
with My love
so you can
lean on Me

as we walk together
you’ll always be.

A laid down life is embraced by God.

“His left hand is under my head, and his right hand embraces me. Who is this coming up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved. Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm; for love is as strong as death . . . “. Song of Solomon 8:3,5,6. NKJV

About To Bloom


Let’s go see
the tender ones
who are about
to bloom

and soon will bear
the fruit of Me
just as you
now do.

A laid down life walks with God among His people.

“Let us get up early to the vineyards ; let us see if the vine has budded, whether the grape blossoms are open, and the pomegranates are in bloom.” Song Of Solomon 7:12 NKJV

You come
into My garden
and before
you’re even aware

your love
has overcome Me
as you
nurture there.

A laid down life is lovely to God.

“Oh my love, you are as beautiful as Tirzah, lovely as Jerusalem, awesome as an army with banners! Turn your eyes away from me, for they have overcome me. I went down to the garden of nuts, to see the verdure of the valley, to see whatever the vine had budded and the pomegranates had bloomed. Before I was even aware, my soul has made me as the chariots of my noble people.” Song of Solomon 6:4,5,11,12 NKJV

Open your heart
to Me
and do not be

to take part in
My sufferings
for this
you’re also made.

A laid down life is tested.

“I opened for my beloved, but my beloved had turned away and was gone. My heart leaped up when he spoke. I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer. The watchmen who went about the city found me; they struck me, they wounded me . . .If you find my beloved . . .tell him I am lovesick! Yes, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend.” Song of Solomon 5:6,7,8,16 NKJV

You ravish
My heart
with one look
from your eyes

My garden
My fountain
My stream
of life.

A laid down life ravishes His heart.

“You have ravished my heart, my sister, my spouse; you have ravished my heart with one look of your eyes, with one link of your necklace. A garden enclosed is my sister, my spouse, a spring shut up, a fountain sealed. A well of living waters, and streams from Lebanon.” Song of Solomon 4:9,12,15 NKJV

Truly Pleasing


Seek Me, My love
and do not let
anything keep
you from Me

for I alone
am the One
whose love is
truly pleasing.

A laid down life is awakened to His love.

” ‘I will rise now,” I said, “And go about the city; in the streets and in the squares I will seek the one I love.’ Scarcely had I passed by them, when I found the one I love. I held him and would not let him go . . . Do not stir up or awaken love until it pleases.” Song of Solomon 3:2,4,5

Rise Up


Rise up, My love
and take My hand
for the rains are
over and done

winter is past
flowers are appearing
your time of singing
has come.

A laid down life has a time of singing.

“My beloved spoke, and said to me: ‘Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For lo, 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 2:10,11,12 NKJV

Fragrant Love


My name is
a poured forth
covering all of you

a fragrant oil
is My love
that fills you
through and through.

A laid down life has His love poured out on it.

“Your love is better than wine. Because of the fragrance of your good ointments, your name is ointment poured forth.” Song of Solomon 1:2,3 NKJV
