“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.
His left hand is under my head,
And his right hand embraces me.”
— Song of Songs 2:4-6
Although this union has not reached its highest point, she indeed feels, “Oh, Lord, You are my banner now. I rest in You. I am secure in You. Now my eyes are upon You. No environment can affect me. I am restful in You. I can see You face to face. I can gaze on You and enjoy You.”
