Here’s the thing, just as money can’t buy happiness, having a love in your life doesn’t guarantee you will feel loved.
It just doesn’t.
There is only One who loves perfectly. No other love will satisfy. Not fully. Not forever. The whole “you complete me” bit? It’s only gonna be found in one place, and that’s God.
He is your bridegroom, singing over his Beloved.
I adore this song by Kari Jobe. It’s a prayer, one that the Lover of your soul sings for you throughout Scripture.
Listen to it and read the lyrics below. There are verses embedded throughout this song, some of which I’ve listed by each line. If you mouse over them, you’ll see the phrases that are echoing throughout the Bible – a love song for you.
Soak in this prayer by your Bridegroom:
Under My mercy – Psalm 119:77
Come and wait – Psalm 62:1-2
Till we are standing face to face – I Corinthians 13:12
I see no stain on you – Psalm 51:1-2, Psalm 51:10
My child – Romans 8:14-16, Galatians 4:5-7
I’ll breathe My life inside of you – Genesis 2:7, John 20:21-22
I’ll bear you up on eagle’s wings – Isaiah 40:31
And hide you in the shadow of My strength – Psalm 91:1
I’ll take you to My quiet waters
I’ll restore your soul – Psalm 23:1-3
Come rest in Me and be made whole – Psalm 116:7, Isaiah 30:15
You’re My Beloved
You’re My Bride
To sing over you is my delight
Come away with me my love
Happy Valentine’s Day, dear Friend. You are so deeply loved by God.
