My Lover Took Me Home But His Eyes Feasted On Me

  • My Lover Took Me Home But His Eyes Feasted On Me

    Here is a story of two lovers, of feasting, of eyes, of fainting  for love, of cradling, of encircling and of a warning. 
    1. The Strong Desires That Comes With Love 

    Son 2:3-7 (MSG)  

    As an apricot tree stands out in the forest, my lover stands above the young men in town. All I want is to sit in his shade, to taste and savor his delicious love.  

    Well, born again or not, there is a strong desire that comes with falling in love.

    If you like, speak in tongues till tomorrow, this desire will not go. 

    But what can be subdued is lust that often wants to tag along, like Lot tagged along with Abraham. 

    Yes, the desire will not go, because there is nothing wrong with the desire, it is the fulfillment of the desire at a wrong time that gets us into trouble. 

    So, all you want when you fall in love is that you want to sit down in each other’s shade, with feelings of wanting to taste and savor the delicious love.

    I felt like that.
    She felt like that.
    But we waited.
    You can wait as well.

    No matter how intense the desire is, do not taste that love before wedding.

    Tasting love and consummating your love before wedding is like stealing a hot meat from the pot of stew before it is ready. Click To Tweet

    Your taste bud gets burnt and you can lose your sense of taste, which ultimately leads to tasting more pot of stew that doesn’t not belong to you! 

    2. The Feasting of the Eye Rather Than On The Meal

[4]  He took me home with him for a festive meal, but his eyes feasted on me!  

    So she followed him home or to some guest house for a meal. 

    Let’s just eat out.

    May we not dine with the wrong person.
    May we not eat up our destinies.
    The guy had more plans than just the meal.

    Ladies, be careful who buy free meals for you, you might be paying for it soonest.

    Rather than for the guy to feast on the meal, his eyes were riveted on the damsel.

Essentially, men are moved by sight. Click To Tweet 

    Men, watch what you see.

    Ladies, watch what is seen. 

    3. The Reciprocity of the Feasting 

    [5]  Oh! Give me something refreshing to eat—and quickly! Apricots, raisins—anything. I'm about to faint with love!  

Ladies are enthralled by attention and non-verbal expressions of love. 

    She was going to faint with love. She felt more important as the guy refuses to satisfy his hunger pangs and focuses on his lust pangs.

    She felt special, but there is a mix-up.

    Their goals are different.

    The lady wants care, attention and love. Click To Tweet

    The guy wants jeru trip, period!

    The contradiction of goals results in confusion of the soul.

    Two cannot walk together except they be agreed. 

    4. The Physicality of The Desires

[6]  His left hand cradles my head, and his right arm encircles my waist!  

In no time, his manifesto begins in aggressive fulfillment of intentions. 

    The left hand that should be busy with the meals travels to the head and cradles it lovingly or “lustingly?”

The right hand in daring progression surpasses the timidity of the left hand and encircles the waist.

    Desires travels into blood veins.
    The heart races and gallops like a horse who just sighted waters!

    Rush of adrenaline colliding with dopamine!
    Hey! Destinies are about to be ruptured. Glorious futures about to be tainted. Promising ministry hopefuls about to morph into miseries!
    5. The Stirring and the Warning 

    [7]  Oh, let me warn you, sisters in Jerusalem, by the gazelles, yes, by all the wild deer: Don't excite love, don't stir it up, until the time is ripe—and you're ready.

    Oh, there comes a warning!

    Don’t do it.

Don’t excite love!

    In a moment, his voice and words are so gentle and caressing, the next moment, his biceps pins you to the wall in a wicked hold, because love has been excited. Be warned!
    Eh, the time is not ripe.
    You are not ready!

    Don’t let the “glee” take over the “flee!”
    It is time to flee!

    Oh, let me warn you, sisters in Jerusalem, by the gazelles, yes, by all the wild deer…

    The gazelles and the wild deer know how to run from the enemy!


    Don’t go to that guest house again.

    Don’t follow him to that hotel again.

    Don’t go and meet him on campus again. 

    Don’t frolic with him in the office again. 

    Don't take his money again, because his money controls you.
    Take a cue from the gazelles and the wild deer.

 When they see the lion crouching, they take off. Click To Tweet

    They are not ready to be preyed upon.

Don’t be a prey! Don't even follow him home!
    As a father, I say to my daughters on KHC, don't excite love, don't stir it up, until the time is ripe—and you're ready.

    You will not miss it!

    You will not "shi-marry!"

    God will guide you and the heavens will assist you!
    God bless you!
