The Spiritual Beauty of Dove’s Eyes

“Behold, you are beautiful, my love! Behold, you are beautiful! You have doves’ eyes” (Song of Solomon 1:15).

Most of us are busy and pulled in so many directions that it is hard to slow down, so we can stay spiritually focused and keep moving forward towards the good, with purpose and peace of mind. The Lord knows we need help to stay grounded in our walk in His kingdom of Light. So He speaks through an allegory of the love relationship between God and His beloved one. Throughout the Song of Solomon God expresses many of the pleasing qualities of his beloved Shulammite partner. In particular, one of these agreeable traits is her possession of “doves’ eyes”.  A dove has a single-purposed eye that can only gaze at one solitary object at a time. To grow spiritually, we must have a single eye towards our loving Lord- time to gaze upon His Truth- time to release the negatives in our hearts-time to allow the Holy Spirit to fill us up again-time to find rest and peace in His loving arms-time to abide as one with Him. Jesus, who is the author and finisher of our faith, wants to help us keep our eyes on Him. Subsequently, when we have needs, we will experientially learn to run to the lover of our souls’ and keep our eyes’ on Him. Through the ups and downs in life- leaning, relying and trusting in His power, grace, and purposes; We will eventually step forward and grow into spiritual beings grounded in faith, hope, and love.
