This quote has resonated with me for years. The meaning has essentially remained the same until recently. I am grateful for the seasons of life coupled with divine revelation and a daily renewed mind that have given me a deeper understanding.
On the way to get my Tinkerbelle some dog food, I had a spiritual epiphany. If the woman's heart is hidden in God, that means she is actively nourishing a relationship with Him. If the man has to seek God for instructions as to how to gain and capture her attention, that is an indication that he too has a relationship with God or will cultivate it to establish deeper roots in Him in order to gain access to her. The result-the spiritual match is established on the solid Rock of God in Christ with the guidance of the Word and Holy Spirit.
Individually, the two are whole in mind, body, and spirit. Collectively, they complement the other's gift(s) for an impactful purpose in the secular and Christian world.
The secular world has been consulted/referenced for far too long in regards to establishing solid, healthy, and meaningful relationships. We refer/defer to other human beings, rather than the Divine Creator. Let's challenge ourselves to consider, ponder, and process principles and concepts that may be foreign to us. Every single time I have done so in relation to God, my life has changed for the better.
Be healthy. Be happy. Be whole.
I accept the challenge to establish deeper roots in God in order to receive the blessings for my life.
I trust the process of establishing those roots knowing that the shedding, purging, and pruning are for an impactful purpose.
