Happy Thursday Friends!
This weeks "Inspiration Workshop" prompt is...
For this week's prompt I thought I would share with you
pictures from our wedding and the
meaning behind them!
There was a season in my life
that I studied Song of Solomon very intensely.
I meditated on each verse one by one.
As I studied the Scriptures it became real to me
that He is my Bridegroom.
I am His Bride.
As I studied,
I loved this one in particular,
"I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys."
Song of Solomon 2:1
While studying this verse,
I learned that the rose equals beauty...
(our groomsmen wore roses)
And the lily equals purity.
(My groom wore the lily)
Therefore meaning that
the Rose of Sharon and the Lily of the Valley
are the Brides true identity in Jesus.
The Bride is beautiful and she is pure.
And who is the Bride?
As a Believer, each of You
are the Beautiful and Pure Bride of Christ.
When I'm having not so good days
(and this week has been a rough one!)
I am reminded of how He feels about me.
He calls me beautiful.
He calls me pure.
He says, "Arise my darling, my beautiful one, and come with me."
He says, "All beautiful you are, my darling;
there is no flaw in you."
May you be encouraged today that he calls you
beautiful. And that is your true identity!
**The last picture is a picture of our wedding favors. Each guest went home with a packet of Rose of Sharon seeds. The tag reads: "We can't thank you enough for coming and sharing in our joy! Our prayer for you as you leave is that you have experienced the love of Jesus tonight. May you know the peace that He has for you. May you know that in this verse the rose represents beauty and the lily represents purity. This is your true identity in Jesus, beautiful, purified, and washed clean. May you experience all that He has for you! Love in Jesus, Robert & Kristin"
Amen and Amen.
