First True Love

Remember your first love.   Remember the first time you had all these feelings going a million miles an hour and you couldn’t keep your mind of thinking about the one you had such deep emotional feelings for.


The Gentile slave girl in the Love Song had her mind on the newly anointed king of Israel.  He was the most desirable single man alive due to the superlative delightfulness of experiencing God’s love through the king of peace, God’s beloved son, Solomon.

Just the mention of his name made her fall more and more in love with him.  She ran thoughts of him through her mind and the unquenchable flame of love in her heart for the closest most intimate relationship with a Messiah of Israel, who “loved God” and “kept the statutes of David”, only grew stronger and stronger.   She had to have him.  She wanted him and rightly so.

Just after his anointing when his the most fragrant ointments could still be smelled.  She thinks of him and what it would be like for him to kiss her over and over again in a private location.   That is the desire of her heart.  She is in love with him because of his most delightful love and his name was most pleasing to her more pleasing than the smell of his anointments.  He is close enough to smell and she says,

“Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth—
    for your love is more delightful than wine.

She says this speaking about him, the king, in the 3rd person.    She is not directed talking to him.  She is desiring something about him and says it while she is close enough to smell his ointments, knowing his name and then making a comparison between them for they were both delightful and pleasurable experiences.   Knowing and loving his name above all other pleasures.

Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes;
    your name is like perfume poured out.

Okay, now go back and read it again and notice that she changes her writing perspective from the 3rd person to the second.  After desiring repeated acts of sweetness and love from him, he turns his head and looks at her as she continues to express her love to him and says,

“Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes;
    your name is like perfume poured out.”

Notice the your in verse three and the him in verse 2.   She goes from speaking about what she wants from him to directed speaking to him and says the sweetest things about his character and the superlative excellency of his name.

    No wonder the young women love you!
Take me away with you—let us hurry!
    Let the king bring me into his chambers.  Solomon’s Song of Songs 1:4


The purpose of the Song is for us to give us an idea of love.  Love is…

Solomon wrote the Love Song for us to get an idea of Love.    What love is.  At the end of this most sublime love Song, the reason the two were able to get so close to one another was because “love is…”

Then a man of unmeasurable wisdom tells us the nature of their love!!!  Now at the end of the love Song the bride of the wisest man alive, the greatest type of Christ alive, gifted with an unmeasurable amount of wisdom gives us a description of what love is.  She new what it was like to be loved by the king.  By the end of the Song she gets more than what she denied of him.   So the whole love Song, from beginning to end is meant to illustrate the Biblical Doctrine of Love in the context of a most unusual marriage of the greatest Messiah thus far and a Sunburnt, born again, Gentile, enemy, slave girl.   Their bond was strong and close together due to some of the most beautiful excellencies of the nature of love.

for love is as strong as death,
    its jealousy, cruel as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
    like a flame above all other’s.
Many waters cannot quench love;
    rivers cannot sweep it away.
If one were to give
    all the wealth of one’s house for love,
    it would be utterly scorned.

Single people, dating couples, engaged couples, married, widowed and others.  We all need to know what love is!!  We are called to love.  But what is love and what it looks like is defined for us here in the Love Song right at the end so that we can see the reason there was such a delightful harmony in the relationship.  All was due to love.


When you go to read the Love Song it is a good idea to have an idea of love first so that you know the goal of the Song.  Solomon wants and intends for you to get a right idea of love so that you can love other’s.   We go to the dictionary to get a definition of something we don’t fully know so that we could get a better idea of it by its definition.  In the same way we can get a better biblical idea of love when it is defined and also illustrated.

Here is the definition or nature of their love,

for love is as strong as death,
    its jealousy, cruel as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
    like a flame above all other’s.
Many waters cannot quench love;
    rivers cannot sweep it away.
If one were to give
    all the wealth of one’s house for love,
    it would be utterly scorned.

Their love is strong.

Love is strong enough to accomplish its purpose.

Love’s purpose in the heart of the man and woman is to draw them together for love unites and sin separates.  Death will happen, death is inevitable.  Death is certain, it will happen and will destroy and separate you further from God, yet love and life with bind two hearts and draw them closer and closer to each other.  Love is as strong as death.

The degree of strength in which love can accomplish its purpose to unite enemies is as strong as deaths purpose to separate.  They have an equal amount of strength for love is as strong as death.  Love and Death are put as superlative strengths in life.  If you were to think of the greatest power’s what would they be?  Plant, Animal, sinful man, angels, Christians, Jesus, the power of the Holy Spirit.  God is Love, deity in act.  Get an idea of love and you get an idea of God for the nature of both is the same,

for love is as strong as death,
    its jealousy is cruel as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
    like a flame above all other’s.
Many waters cannot quench love;
    rivers cannot sweep it away.
If one were to give
    all the wealth of one’s house for love,
    it would be utterly scorned.

It is one of the greatest powers on earth.  Its jealousy is cruel as the grave.  Their is no flame greater for it “burns like a flame above all other’s” sweeter, clearer, hotter forever!  Its an unforgettable force, many waters cannot quench love;  Its unquenchable!!  You cant stop it.  No power from even Hell could have stopped them from getting closer and closer to each other!!

This kind of love is priceless.  Therefore “if one were to give all the wealth of one’s house for love, it would be utterly scorned.

I mean now that she finally got the man of her dreams and the greatest happiness of her life, living in perfect love and harmony with him whom she loves.   Understanding him and his love to her she love him back by learning to give all of herself to him and never doubt his love to her.  She says it like this,

I am his and his desire is for me.”  7:10

She knew his affection where for her, but she doubted sometimes but by the end of the Song she doesn’t doubt his love to her and what kind of value to she put on his love to her?  It is priceless!!!

The superlatives are all over the place!  Superlative strength.  Superlative cruelty in Jealousy.  Superlative flame.  Unquenchable nature, nothing can stop it.  And priceless value.

The love illustrated in the Love Song has superlative characteristics about it!!  Love has a superlative strength to it.  The nature and essence of love is the soul’s delight in the supreme excellency of the Divine Nature, which inclines the new heart to choose God as its chief good.  God wants her to be as close to him and her wise and loving husband as possible as soon as possible.  The good thing is because of his good reputation and the experience of being loved in a marriage relationship with him would be more delightful than wine.  There is also a superlative delightfulness to both their love.  Song 1:2 with Song 4:9-10.

So the true experience of love is that it is more delightful than wine.

Love is the greatest power, Jealous sparks are the cruelest, it’s a flame above all other’s, unquenchable and most highly valued and delighted in.  This kind of love is on display in the Song as the Wisest, greatest type of Christ draws his bride ever closer to himself by his unmatched love to her.  He was the “chief lover among ten thousand other’s“. Song 5:10.

Love has the power to unite.  What would words of desire sound like that wanted to be closer and more intimate with the one she loves sound like?  She expresses her love of him and says,

Let him kiss me with the kisses of his lips for your love is more delightful than wine.

Then knowing his name she wants to be even closer saying now directed to him,

Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes your name is like perfume poured out.

Such great desire for the newly anointed king is right,

“No wonder the maidens love and adore him.”

Desiring him to choose her exclusively for love jealousy over the affection’s of the beloved compel her heart to say,

Take me away with you.”

Then also we can see the superlative ardency of her love and affection by her not wanting to waist any time in doing.  She expresses her great urgency in her heart by saying,

Let us hurry...”  Don’t waist any time getting closer to a man of good reputation!!

Then wanting the closest most intimate relationship possible.  To be closest to him, privately.  She pours out her heart as to the intimacy of the location in which she wants to experience his love to her over and over again,  She humbly yet on holy fire she says,

Let the king take me into his chamber’s

Love has power to unite. Cupids arrow had struck and she is in love because of who he is and what he is like.

Observe the power of love to cast out fear!   Here we see the power of love to cast out fear.  She has no fear of drawing closer to him!!  This is absolutely beautiful!!  She’s not dumb, it is right for her to desire him as soon as possible!!

She wanted to be one with the king of peace as soon as possible.   She wanted to be heart to heart having the same love from, with and to him.

18 “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment.” 1 John 4:18

The motive in doing good is not from fear but love.

How many women fear putting their heart in the hands of her husband?

How many women trust their husbands completely so that they don’t fear having the closest most intimate relationship with her husband’s.   They fear getting their feeling hurt.  Will the king of peace hurt her feelings?  No.  He has the same love in his heart as she does!

She know’s what love is.

Since she knows what it is and also what its like in action she has no fear of falling deeply in love with him.   From the looks of her sunburn she was an enemy and should be in slavery as Israel experience their peace and rest in the promised land.  She had no right to the promises of God by the looks of her.  But in her heart was love.

She knows love will unite.  She knows the power of love.  And she knows his name.  He is the most desirable man alive.  His love will unite her to him.  His love will draw her closer and she knows it because she has it in herself and he has love in his heart as well.

The key is that the Gentile born again slave knows him well enough to not fear and that he is known to be trustworthy due to the fact that he will live out his names, Jedidiah meaning God’s beloved son, Solomon, meaning king of peace, and the prophecies about him.  And that they shared the same love.

She was before being born again, a seed of Satan and he was of the root of Jesse, the Son of David.  She gets the flame of love in her heart and then desires to be one with the newly anointed king.  They were at enmity with each other.  She ought to be enslaved in the fields because she was a sunburnt enemy of God.   Yet she wanted the Messiah of Israel to be her husband and kiss her over and over again.   What would he be doing kissing her, an enemy of the throne of God?  Yet she was no enemy but a friend of the king due to the new found love in her heart that she has for him!  What faith!!  What love is this!!

Inestimable value of love.

This text also illustrates to us the inestimable value of their love for each other.  Can you put a value on true love.  She truly loves him.  He loves her as servant in his kingdom but he doesn’t yet love her as a husband would his wife.  The intimacy of the relationship isn’t enough.  She wants the king as a husband because a husband has a closer more intimate relationship with his bride than a king to a servant.  The man has a love described as,

as strong as death,
    its jealousy, cruel as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
    like a flame above all other’s.
Many waters cannot quench love;
    rivers cannot sweep it away.
If one were to give
    all the wealth of one’s house for love,
    it would be utterly scorned.

The inestimable value of this love comes from the fact that it cant be bought is strong as death and will accomplish its purpose of Glorifying God by uniting two hearts to become one in both body and heart.

Love draws by increasing desire in the heart.

When the spark of love went of in her mind, she had thoughts of him.  When the fire in her heart was felt is was sweet and delightful more than wine, the love she had for him.  She felt it as she expressed her deepest desire of him to kiss her over and over again, as soon as possible in the most intimate setting.  The increase of desire comes from the increase of knowledge of the beloved.  His name was pleasing to her.  His name is not Satan or Lucifer, or Judas Iscariot. His name was beloved son of God, king of peace, in whom all the promises of Moses would be fulfilled.  She was drawn to him by an increase of desire for him that came at the mention of his name.   She wants to be drawn into the closest most intimate relationship and her heart runs after him as swift and fearless as a mare in battle.

My point of all this was to understand better the superlative characteristics of love defined at the end of the love Song.   We do this by knowing those characteristics and then looking for their manifestation throughout the Song.   This post focused on seeing them in just the first few verses of the Song.  But you should look for them throughout the Song in order to get a clearer and clearer idea of love so that you can love.

You are to love.  How do you know you are acting it out in marriage unless you know what it is!

Saved in 2000 at age 27. Nearly immediately I fell in love with the Song and grew very fast the first two years memorizing large portions of scripture purifying my mind the started chewing on meat to soon and struggled for 12 years and Christ has me on track like always but I just took the long way around and now I love leading others closer to Christ by seeing His love reflected in Solomons love for an enemy slave girl.

I have experienced God's love to me in the Song in ways that words can't express. There are many portion of the Word where she experiences extra ordinary outpouring of the Holy Spirit of God. If you have a burning desire for a close intimate relationship with God by experiencing His Love to you over and over again at greater and greater heights, depths, lengths and breaths then The Song of Songs is where you need to be.

I can help you with this process of Growing in the experience of God's love. As of 7-23-16 I have experienced everything prior to chapter 8. The Song of Song is progressive in experience. Meaning that if you are mature then you can experience the joys and extraordinary outpourings of God's Love shed abroad in your heart.

If you are not so mature then the delights in the first chapter of the Song will satisfy your thirst for experiencing the Love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Many Christian are living in sin because they do not know how to experience God's love and get hooked on Loving Him. It feels good to be loved and to love Him. His burden is not heavy and His yoke is light, Jesus said in Matt. 10:28

I believe God wants to use me to help beautify His Bride through the Song of Solomon.

If you see the book literally you will not understand nor grasp the Love God has for you. If you see the book and the verses in it relating to Christ's love to you then I would love to show you how to experience this Love to the fullest. I will pray for you daily and guide you every step of the way.

16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

I grew up going to church but was a hypocrite. I lived my life how I chose but went to church on Sunday because my family went.

Mom and Dad divorced when I was about 5.

About this time I was sexually abused by "Bob" a made up name. This incident changed my life for the worst. I had no clue how to deal with it.

As I got older I grew in my hatred for Bob. I didn't blame anyone of my family because I was to young to know any better. Some of what happened during the abuse was in a bathroom. So overtime I would use the bathroom and look at my private parts that night would replay in my mind. My hatred for Bob would continue to grow each time.

Now I know this only happened to me one night. I can't image the pain other's go through who have had this happen to them over and over. Even as I write this now I cry with many tears for those hurting. God love you even though you may not know it or feel it. Go to Him in your time of need.

I was a really bad teenager. I only cared about myself and not even my family. I always came first in my mind. Even at the expense of hurting others. I was growing in my hatred for God by now.

I was going to church and was learned that God was in control. I thought well, if God was in control then He must have let me be sexually abused. I didn't understand this, How could a good and loving God allow this. I hated Him for it. My hatred for Bob grew as well. I was still using the bathroom and memories kept coming back. My heart grew even harder for Bob and God. As far as I was concerned God would have nothing to do with my life so I lived even worse. I thought I would be in jail or dead and I really didn't care, I thought it could be much worse than reliving your painful past over and over again. Little did I know that God's plan later would be to use these events to give me a burning passion for the closest most intimate love relationship with Himself through Christ mainly through the love poem in the Song of Songs in the Bible.

I remember hating Bob so much that the only thing that would relieve my pain was actually thinking he would suffer forever for what he did. I grew so much in my hatred for him that I had to continue to think that he would get even worse than what I imaged before. After some time I would only be relieved of hatred for him unless I thought he would burn in a hotter and hotter hell for all the suffering he put me through.

I never told my mom or family what happened, although I think some of them knew something had happened.

I grew up quite rebellious and even went to jail at the age of 20. I was living the fast life pursuing all my sinful desires and wanting more. It never seemed to be enough. I was quite happy in my sin but I just wanted more of it.

I lived life thinking I would die at a young age, riding motorcycle and living on the edge put me in the hospital many times and I should have been dead.

California at age 26.

I moved to California for a job opportunity at the age of 27. While trying to figure out what radio stations to program in my car, I ran across a RC Sproul talking about "people who have the faith that saves and people who only say that have faith" only the people who have the faith that saves will go to heaven. I thought "I don't think I have the faith that saves because my life was so bad." I searched the scriptures to try to get this faith. I found a church and thought people there could help me get this faith that saves. All along God kept showing me how sinful I was and that I deserved punishment from Him for living my life hating Him.

One weekend I read Matthew, Mark, Luke and John desperately trying to find out how to get this faith that saves. By now I knew that if you had the faith that saves that Jesus would be saving you from a life of sin. I still liked my sin and Jesus sure wasn't saving me from a life of sin, so I rightly concluded that I didn't have the faith that saves.

By the time I got to John, I saw "believe" everywhere. John 3:16 and other verses and wow the whole book was written so that you may believe. John 20:31 "these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name." So at night I would pray "I believe Jesus died for me, I believe, I believe. This was just an intellectual belief. I knew that in history and the Bible that Jesus died for everyone, so I believed it. But this belief did not change my life.

I would go on night after night saying the same prayer only to wake up the next day wanting to fulfill my sinful desires. The prayer wasn't working so I started to word it different each time hoping some prayer would work. After about 2 weeks of this I was fed up with it all, nothing was happening. I still was living in my sin and wanted more of it. A Christian hates their sin and does something about it, and certainly they don't continue to make plans to sin. The prayers weren't working so I gave up. I thought to myself "God, I tried with all my might, I searched the Scriptures, went to church, read the Bible and prayed all to no avail. If Im going to be saved your going to have to do it because I tried."

So I quit praying but still the Bible kept calling me so I read more. 3 Days later I was laying in a tanning bed and God convicted me really hard that I had offended Him by the life I was living. I was so scared of God, where could I run. You can't hide from God. It seemed like forever that I was under these terrors of being punished by a Holy Angry God. This lasted about 10 minutes then this is how I understood it. God let me understand that all that anger that He had for me for all my sin should come my way but He had poured that anger out on Jesus 2,000 years ago. I immediately started weeping an couldn't stop for about 20 minutes. All the sins that I could think of I confessed for that 20 minutes one after another after another, I was so sorrowful and grieved it physically hurt inside.

After I stopped crying I thought that was the weirdest thing that ever happened. I walked out of the tanning salon and stood outside and everything seemed so beautiful, the tree's, the birds, even the air seemed pleasant. Now I was really wondering what was going on.

I pondered all of this as I drove to work that day. I brought my Bible to work and was thinking what am I doing, I want to take my Bible to work so I can read it. As soon as I got to work I started reading my Bible. I couldn't believe what I was reading!! It all was so wonderful. It felt so good to just read my Bible. My client showed up and as I was training them the only thing I could think about was getting back to my Bible. I read all night and slept about 2 hours and was reading again.

I had sinful things in my apartment and I rounded everything evil up and threw it in the garbage. It was weird I was thinking but it felt good so I left it all in the garbage. I called my girlfriend to break it up and she thought I had another girl, I said no, I just think this is wrong we shouldn't be sleeping together. She didn't understand so I told her I was a Christian now and she still thought I had another girlfriend. She said "Im glad your a Christian, so am I" I thought to myself, "I have a strong conviction that sleeping together is wrong and she thought it was okay" I wondered how she could think that. Anyway we broke up.

I kept reading my bible and repenting, there was so much to repent of and I had lived a very sinful life. I was a thief for some part of my life and all the people I stole from kept coming to mind. I owed so much money. I was instantly in debt about $80,000. As I could I paid them back. As of 7-18-2016 I still owe about $25,000 but it sure is a joy to be paying them back.

The first week of being saved a car just about ran me over, they hit me but I wasn't hurt at all. The guy in the car felt so bad. I just looked at him and said "God bless you and have a great day, I am okay" smiled at him and moved on. Now I was really wondering what was going on because I normally would have cussed him out left and right and instead of cussing I blessed him. That was so weird. But again it felt good. I learned to do good by what my conscience told me was good and that it felt good. I got hooked on this feeling good by doing good and did it more often.

About two weeks after being saved I thought of Bob. I immediately prayed for him, something like "Lord help him.." then I stopped praying and said out loud "What am I doing?" I'm praying for a man that I hated my whole life, but it feels good and right, so I did it again. I stopped again midway in the prayer and started pacing around. I was trying to make sense of what was going on and couldn't figure it out. But again it made me happy to pray for him so I did. Bob would often come to mind when I went to the bathroom and each time I would pray for Him. The more I did this the less weird it got. And the greater my love grew for him.

I started memorizing large portions of scripture and this was wonderful because it felt like the words were cleaning my mind and as Proverbs 2:10 "For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul." I wanted more and more of this pleasantness. So I memorized even more and the joy got more and more.

Then this life changing advice came:

A friend from church told me to find a book of the Bible and really understand it. Read through the Bible and pick one and read it over and over and study it and really get it. So I started in Genesis and read through. When I got to Proverbs I really liked it so I thought that would be the book. I started by memorizing all of Proverbs chapter 3. After that I thought maybe there is a better book than Proverbs. So I read on. Then I came to Song of Solomon. I read it with quite some confusion. It wasn't as good as the other books, I didn't know why. So I bought a commentary on it. George Burrowes commentary on the Song of Solomon.

In the commentary I found that George and other saw the book as illustrating God's love to the Church. And not only illustrating it but displaying the Love of Christ better than any other book. This caught my attention big time, because I was having a burning desire for a closer relationship with God and desperately learning about His Love so that I could Love God. You see I had hated Him for so long that God used that old hard heart to spur me on in loving Him. I so much did not want to hate God anymore that I was on fire to learn to Love Him as much and as fast as possible. So here was a book that would help me do that. So I landed on the Song of Solomon. I committed to learning as much of this book as possible.

I memorized the first chapter and would repeat it often throughout the day. I didn't know much of what I was repeating but it sure made me happier and on fire for God. I grew so fast repeating the first chapter over and over again all day, like a dozen times a day at least. It felt so good and I never found any other book that caused me to weep so much. I would often weep everyday just reading it. I was to immature to know what was going on. Even though it hurt to weep so much, I felt like my heart was being cleansed from the filth that was in it by repeating it over and over again so I did. As I read the commentary I understood more and more. What God was doing in me through the Song was greater and faster than any other portion of Scripture so I tended to stay there often. I was so excited about God that I thought it funny that other's in church weren't the same way. Some where happy but it seemed most of them didn't seem to care much about God. They would talk about work, football the weather. The only thing I wanted to talk about was Jesus and God and how can I grow closer to Him.

About this time there was a mission trip to Ireland.

I started to have convictions that I should try to find Bob and witness to him. I kept praying for him but how could he be saved if he hadn't heard the Gospel that has power unto salvation. So I asked family if they had any information. Like me before, my family hated him and thought he deserved hell. After some time I got his name but no location or phone number. Either they didn't know where he was or didn't want to tell me. I prayed some more and then started to get stronger convictions to do something about finding Bob.

So I went on the internet and typed in "his name and child molestation sex offender court" thinking that some court record would have some info leading to where I may find him" I even talked to a private eye and he couldn't help. So I googled some key words and spent hours each day looking through each page. I believed it was God's will for me to witness to Bob. I wanted him to be saved. Really bad. So much so that I thought God would save Bob if I were to witness to him. So I didn't stop searching for him. I kept my computer on each day and went page by page. It took two years to go through about 15,000 pages but I found someone who matched his name in a prison for molesting his grandchildren. I wrote the prison and he wrote back. All kinds of emotions went through my body when I saw his letter from the jail. I didn't open it right away but two hours later God gave me enough courage to face my fears again and I opened the letter. He admitted to being the one who molested me. We wrote back and forth I told him I was angry before but now I was saved and that I loved him and believed God wanted me to talk to him. He read my letters over and over again. I shared the gospel in each one.

I got mad at Bob 2x. Once he said that he love me. I got really angry with him. He didn't love me. That night it was hard to love Bob, I had to call a friend to pray for me to repent, after he prayed I felt greater love for Bob. Then I wrote him back saying "I'm sorry but you can't say that you loved me. You did not love me you lusted after me." He admitted he didn't love as he should have and admitted that it was lust and sinful. Finally some conviction. Yet I only thought he was saying that because I was being nice to him. All his family had left him and he said I was the only "friend" he had.

Wether or not it was true Bob said that he had cancer in his arm and that the help the prison gives was not enough and if he had money he could see a different doctor and get help. I sent him some money and since I was in jail before I knew what it was like to be in there without money, so I sent him money.

About 4-5 months in the economy went down, it was 2008. Work was hard. I still sent him money and I had to work harder. This was a really good lesson for me because I had to "work hard for the benefit of someone who did not deserve it." This was one of the greatest blessing ever because I realized with great certainty that Jesus was in me. This is what Jesus did. Jesus worked his whole life for me and I didn't deserve it!! Christ was in me! This was one of the best feelings ever and it put me in worship for months.

Then a mission trip to Croatia.

Each time I had to leave my business and amazing as it is I was completely okay each time. I am a self employed personal trainer and it is normally absurd to just leave and start over, but each time I had enough work within 2 weeks of coming back. This is a flat out miracle. I trusted God to provide and he did. How many people can start up a business in 2 weeks. Only with the help of God. God was teaching me early on in my walk that as long as I did what He wanted me to do then I had nothing to worry about.

About 3 years saved now.

I Taught the 4 year old's at church Sunday morning for 10 years.

Left my business 2x for mission trips and God miraculously provided when I came back.

I taught 5 x a week plus held a job.

Teaching Monday afternoons at a nursing home. I taught through the Song of Songs once then John, then Romans then back to the Song again! I love the Song of Songs.
I grew up hating God for what happened to me, and now I love Him because He first loved me. My passion is for children to grow up loving God and not hating Him.

My other passion which has become ever greater is to help others see the Love of Christ to His Church in the Song of Songs!!

I would love to help you, just let me know and I will lead you and pray for you.

God demonstrates His love to us in sending His one and only Son to suffer in our place, taking our sins upon Himself so that whoever believes they get to heaven because of what He did for us will not perish but have everlasting life.
