Like an apple tree among the woods,
So is my beloved among the sons
I sat down in his shade with great delight
And his fruit was sweet to my taste.
He brought me to the banqueting house,
And his banner over me was love.
Sustain me with cakes of raisins,
Refresh me with apples,
For I am lovesick.
This is God’s love for the church and I want to be lovesick over Him. But as I start to get frustrated with myself and my feelings and my thoughts Jeremiah 29:11 puts me at ease:
For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord,
Plans for good and not for evil,
To give you a future and a hope.
Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me
And I will listen to you.
And you will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me
With all your heart.
These verses are my anthem.
