Through the Valley, 2
Song of Solomon which I linked in the last post has ministered to my heart in ways I can't fully articulate. I listened to the melody for several weeks, and thought that was quite beautiful, but it wasn't until I really paid attention to the words that I was totally overtaken by it...crying (sometimes very hard) almost every time I replayed it. But the tears aren't sad and despairing ones. They are more a mixture of sorrow and trust, and they come because the words so accurately reflect my heart's cry and my desire to know the Lover of my spirit and soul responds exactly as these words depict. In some unexplainable way, I am so very encouraged every time I hear it.
