Song of Solomon 6

God may leave us for a while but He will always come back to us.If we leave God He will leave us,when we want Him again He will not be there,that way we will realize that we need Him,and once we realize that God will come back to us,that way we won't leave God again.If God just came back when we want Him then we may leave him many times.

"who is that young woman that shines out like the dawn? She is as pretty as the moon, as bright as the sun, as wonderful as an army of flying flags."

This reminds me of the weepies song "Somebody Loved". The Shulamite woman was not beautiful by the standards of her society. The things described about her show that she was a rugged peasant girl, not a refined "lady". And yet the love of the King wooed and romanced her and turned her into "somebody loved". I think I have a lot to learn from this with all of my insecurities and self loathing. I am "somebody loved". By the king, by my family, I am beautiful because I am beautiful, it has nothing to do with body type or weight. Beauty is so much more than that.
