Every person longs to be loved, to believe someone cares for them more than life itself. By weaving the rich imagery of a wedding throughout the text, in Lover of My Soul the reader is reminded that Christ the Bridegroom loves them deeply and completely - that He gave His life as payment for their eternal joy. In the same way every bride appears as a radiant beauty on her wedding day and every groom is handsome and strong, Christ presents His all-satisfying love to anyone who will take His hand in a spiritual marriage of the heart.
