Is it Wrong to Call God your LOVER?

Isaiah 54:5 "For your Maker is your HUSBAND, The Lord of hosts is His name; And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel; He is called the GOD of the whole earth."
I have come across so many posts on Facebook that are "suggesting or arguing" that it is wrong to call God your lover. Well, if it is so wrong, why would the Bible state that our Maker is our husband? If God is indeed our husband, then our relationship with Him should not have boundaries. We should have the freedom that He has given us, the freedom to refer to Him as our lover.

“For the perverse one is hateful to Jehovah, but His (Gods) intimacy is with the righteous” Proverbs 3:32

What's wrong with calling God my lover? Where in the Bible does it state that I should  not call God my lover. He loved me when no one else did, that makes Him my lover. He died for me that's true LOVE which makes Him my LOVER. I call Him my LOVER because He shows me how to love NOT just myself but others. Songs of Songs is a conversation between two lovers, yearning for each other and praising each other. If you look at it with a deeper revelation, you can say it is a relationship between God and the Church. This is a relationship that takes place in the most sacred place, the Holy of Holies. 

“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you." James 4:8

In our relationship with God, we should desire more of Him. We should fully express ourselves by praising, adoring, and yearning for more and more of Him. Words are just but one of the way to express your love to God. Our relationship with God must be on an intimate level, in the beginning Adam and Eve knew God intimately and personally. They talked and walked with Him in the garden of Eden. His desires have been to be close to us and us to me, one on one relationship with Him. When God is your lover, somethings can only be felt in the heart than by words. It is personal.
