Beloved, I have watched you as you have grown and matured, as you have made decisions to forsake all others, to lay aside the things you care about, to lay aside your own desires, wants and even your own needs. I have stood as a proud Father knowing that you have made decisions that were right, but knowing too that they have been very costly to you. Not only in terms of your own comfort, but also the cost you have paid in laying down relationships with those that you have loved dearly.
My dear one, know that I am proud of you, that I love you and that I care. I lift your face to my face and I kiss away your tears and I hold you close to me. I surround you with my love and I spread my cloak around you. I am jealous for you, I am jealous for your heart, I am jealous for all of you. You are mine!
(NIV) Song of Songs 8:6-7
Place me like a seal over your heart,
like a seal on your arm;
for love is as strong as death,
its jealousy unyielding as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
like a mighty flame
Many waters cannot quench love;
rivers cannot sweep it away.
If one were to give
all the wealth of one’s house for love,
it would be utterly scorned.
