"You are a garden locked up, my sister, my bride; you are a spring enclosed, a sealed fountain." Song of Solomon 4:12
The garden locked up has a wall all around it. But when the Lover comes, he sees the potential of what is BEHIND the wall. He sees a beautiful garden and a refreshing, cooling fountain inside the barricade.
No matter what walls we have erected around ourselves- walls of insecurity and fear, frustration, bitterness, or timidity- the Lover declares that He knows that there is something beautiful behind them. He sees the REAL us. He will help break down the walls that keep us locked up and paralysed, so that we can truly bloom.
A heart set on love will do no wrong- Confucius
And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever. Isaiah 32:17
