Proverbs 5:15-19 Drink water from your own cistern, running water from your own well. Should your springs overflow in the streets, your streams of water in the public squares? Let them be yours alone, never to be shared with strangers. May your fountain be blessed, and may your rejoice with THE WIFE OF YOUR YOUTH. A LOVING DOE, A GRACEFUL DEER – may her breasts satisfy you always, and may you ever BE CAPTIVATED BY HER LOVE.
Captive is defined as; a person or animal that is confined or restrained; a person whose behaviour is dominated by some emotion:a captive of love; held as prisoner, under restriction or control.
Captivated is defined as; to hold the attention of by fascinating or enchant.
Yesterday, I watched with my husband a movie series based on the novel, WAR AND PEACE by LEO TOLSTOY. It reminded me of the courtship period when love is so intensive yet the heart is restless. Marriage on the other hand gives love a base…i.e a home and the heart, a place to rest for life…i.e peace. In other words, LOVE HOLDS YOU CAPTIVE. King Solomon was wise in saying that when a husband finally finds a wife…he finds a good thing..Proverbs 18:22. Dear husbands, keep your eyes set on HER. Yes, let her love CAPTIVATE, ENCHANT, FASCINATE and fill you like no other! This is true of a husband who had deep love for his wife…HE WILL BE COMFORTED!!!
Genesis 24:67 Isaac brought her into the tent of his mother Sarah and he married Rebekah. So she became his wife, and HE LOVED HER; and Isaac was COMFORTED after his mother’s death.
Are you a Christian husband? Are you captivated by the love of your wife?
This is a quote by Leo Tolstoy from his novel, WAR and PEACE.
Seize the moment of happiness, LOVE AND BE LOVED! That is the only reality in the world, all else is folly.
