As the bride reaches the climax of her journey she sees the immense value of love. Everything else pales in comparison. Wealth and social status are utterly despised when compared to embracing the seal of the Bridegroom's love on her heart. The fleeting pleasures of this life are brought into proper perspective as we choose the eternal pleasures of being in the presence of the Bridegroom. As Psalm 36 says, "you give them drink from the river of Your pleasures".
It is these pleasures that make the bride confident in the face of trials and disappointments. May you be blessed to know this love that is truly "better than life"!
