Swept Away is the first in the Unbridled Passion series.
“As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.” Psalm 42:1-2
The name of the silk is Sealed. The colors in it are electric blue representing intensity, turquoise representing zeal, white representing bride, pearl shimmer representing pearl of great price, and cranberry representing sealed (as in Song of Solomon 8:6, “Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.”)
This silk represents the secret place — being in the shadow of the palm of His hand, a place of deep intimacy. It’s a place where you receive the “secret” things: mysteries and revelation. When something is sealed, it is marked with ownership — it belongs to Someone, it has been claimed. Just as our hearts have been claimed by the One who poured out His own blood as the seal upon our hearts.
In response to this unimaginably jealous love, we pour out our own ardent affection with all the zeal and passion that a bride should exhibit as she awaits her wedding day. In this image we see our worshiper being swept away into this moment of unbridled passion.
I pray that you would pour out your life and love as an offering to the One who is enraptured with you.
