I FOUND THE ONE MY HEART LOVES
Song of Songs 3:4a
1. Let me hear your voice (2:8-15)
Spring is a time of new life. The winter is past and everything blossoms. In the same way, the love of our Lord kindles life in his people. Trusting in the love of Jesus and believing in him is crossing over from death to life (Jn 5:24). At the same time, new life can be threatened. Just as a blooming vineyard can become ruined by little foxes, the life planted in us is also vulnerable. That is the time to turn to Jesus and call on him, for he loves us. He gives us the strength to catch the little foxes of sinful desires and protect our love relationship with him.
2. I will search for the one my heart loves (2:16-3:5)
When the bond of love is strong, there is no rest when lovers are apart. Love is a matter of heart. To love God is to seek him with all of our heart and to hold him with all of our strength (Dt 6:5).
