“Promise me, O women of Jerusalem, by the gazelles and wild deer, not to awaken love until the time is right.”
Song of Solomon 2:7 (NLT)
This photo was taken of Aaron and me the day we started courting back in 2010. Little did we know, that exactly one year later, we would marry.
I had never met anyone like Aaron, yet my heart recognized him when we met. It was very difficult not to get caught up in the moment while we were courting. During this time, I often meditated on Song of Solomon 2:7 because I did not want to rush anything. I wanted to do this the right way by allowing God to lead.
If you’re currently or potentially courting, please memorize this verse and live by it. Trust that the Lord’s will for you is better than you can ever imagine.
