SONG OF SOLOMON 8:14
Joyfully the radiant bride turned to Him, the one altogether lovely, the chief among ten thousand to her soul, and with unconcealed eagerness to begin her life of sweet companionship with him, she answered, Make haste, my beloved, and come quickly, like a gazelle or a young hart and take me to our waiting home upon the mountain of spices.

I believe the Song of Solomon is a love story of Jesus and His bride. In Chapter 8 she is waiting for His return with the pain of separation in her heart. She has been in the wilderness and has learned to lean upon Him. How else could she know that many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. (vs.7).
When trials come and we need help, if we run here or there for help, how will we know how He will react to us? She has learned:
- He is always faithful
- He is always on time
- He is never mad at her
- He is more than ready to forgive
- He is always gentle
- He is always loving
- He is always patient and kind
- He is always there and will never leave
- He is always there to supply every need
- He has every answer that she needs
She has learned to lean upon Him in the trials. Without the trial how will she grow? Now she will run to Him in every situation without any hesitation.
She has learned the value of His love. She has learned the power that flows from His love. There is nothing that can ever compare to His love. And now she is waiting for the only one who can satisfy her soul to come and take her away to their new home that is full of the fragrance of His love. His love is unspeakably beautiful to her soul.
Verse 5 says, “Who is this who comes up from the wilderness leaning upon her beloved?” We need the wilderness experience in our life. If there were no hard times, we would never come to know and trust in Him. We are to be joyful when the trial comes as it says in James so we can learn as the bride has learned just how wonderful He is.
