Knowing how much He enjoys us

“Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest,
So is my beloved among the young men.
In his shade I took great delight and sat down,
And his fruit was sweet to my taste.
He has brought me to his banquet hall,
And his banner over me is love.
Refresh me with raisin cakes,
Sustain me with apples,
Because I am lovesick.
His left hand is under my head,
And his right hand embraces me.”

Song of Songs 2:3-6

One of my favourite people (Andrew Giles) shared about these verses last night in a small cold hall in an obscure town in the middle of Ireland. This morning I am sitting under the apple tree.

God is singing to me a song from Van Morrison: “Have I told you lately that I love you.” As I sit He tells me that I, and others like me who take the time to be with Him, fill His heart with gladness.

I encourage you to sit with Him under the apple tree and don’t strive. He loves you because He loves you.

What is He saying to you?
