Lesson 4 See Love, Delight in Your Lover and Praise Their Love More than Wine


We will rejoice and delight in you, we will remember/value/exult/praise you love more than wine.”  Solomon’s Song of Songs 1:4

What to do

In order to get closer to the one you love you must

1  Look for acts of love to get some idea of it.

2  Delight in those acts.

3  Praise love where you see and delight in it.

Summary of the context

The people remembering, highly valuing, exulting and praising the kings love more than wine.  They see the loveliness of the ways of the king of peace, whom God loves, and this inclines them to walk in holiness.  Their act of praise is a holy action prompted by the knowledge of who their Messiah was and what he would do for them.  The sight and delight of his love inclined them to respond in a holy action of praise!

Not only did Solomon draw out the affection of a Gentile slave girl to want to marry him, but also Solomon drew out the affection of God’s people in His kingdom.


The people drew near their king, saw his love, delighted in him and praised his love more than wine.  Solomon loved the people and the people of Jerusalem loved their newly anointed Messiah.

1  Look for acts of love to get some idea of it.

Love is communicated to the mind by the action of love being seen and delighted in.
Therefore love must be first seen by an action.

When you see love by an action you get some idea of what love is in your mind.  Therefore #1 look for acts of love and watch them to get an idea of love.

These acts of love when seen and delighted in have power to draw the two closer.  Acts of love when seen and delighted in have power.  Acts of love when seen and delighted in have power to unite and bring about a stricter union of hearts.

In our hearts and souls is a mind.  That mind has thoughts, idea and information in it.  In the mind we need to have a proper idea of love in order to “love God with all our mind”.  That love to God will manifest itself in our acts of love to other’s.  “If you love God you will obey His commands.”  God commands husbands and wives to love each other.

When God’s idea of Himself, who is Love is the same as your idea of God and Love then the two of you would be one.  But our Idea of God is lesser than God’s infinite idea of Himself, yet the same in many ways.  We can get a better and better idea of love that is similar to God’s idea of Himself.   The better our idea of God the stricter our practical union with Him is.  The stricter the union, the closer we are to God and the more power we have to draw the one we love closer to ourselves.  So look for acts of love wherever you may see them.  In God to Israel, in Jesus to His disciples, in Jesus to His Bride at the cross, in a husband doing the laundry, in a husband forgiving his wife, in a wife listening to her husband, in a wife delighting in the love of her husband, in one country loving another and on an on.

2  Delight in those acts of love more than wine.

The people promise to rejoice/delight and praise the couples love more than wine.  First, they have some idea of the kings love to his people and his bride.  And second, they have some idea of the sense of it in their hearts, for it is more delightful than wine.   So love is not only known by sight but also by sense.  Because love is the soul’s relish of the supreme excellency of the divine nature inclining the heart to love.

I’ve met couples that delighted in the suffering of their spouse.  That delighted in revenge rather than love that forgives.  Love delights in the happiness of the object of its affection.  Not only is there a superlative delight in receiving love but there is a superlative and sweet flame of delight in the heart of the one doing the loving act.  For love is not complete until we love.

“But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in Him”

“No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.”
If you take pleasure in keeping a record of wrongs or gossip then your delight is not in love but evil.   If you take delight in seeing your spouse suffer to one degree or another because you think they deserve it then you delight in evil and not love and grace.  Love would delightfully suffer and do good on behalf of the object of its affection.  Ps. 18:19, 35:27

3  Praise your spouses love!

Examples of praising your spouses love.

“Your love is more delightful than wine.”  Here the superlative sweetness of your spouses love is being exulted and praised.

“Your love is more precious than diamonds or rubies.”  Here the superlative value of your spouses love is being appreciated, exulted and praised.

An observation on the power of love to change and transform the heart to becoming more loving.

Seeing and delighting in transforms, elevens, enlarges the heart, inclines the heart.

The sight and sense of love has an effect in the heart.  It inclines the heart to love.  It inclines the heart to reciprocate the same affection.

We become more like what we love.

We are transformed to be more like Jesus who is loving when we see His holy and loving actions, delight in them and praise His love more than wine.

In doing so your heart will have a better idea of love and you will love more.

When we behold and delight in love it is the same as beholding the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ both are transforming.

Charity/love . . . rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth. …. if he sees the loveliness of the ways of holiness, this tends to incline him to walk in them.  JE

Many Christians don’t grow in love because they are trying the wrong way.  We get to be more loving by beholding and delighting in seeing God’s attributes in the Person and work of Jesus Christ!

2 Cor. 3:18  “And we all, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.

Homework for both

Promise to rejoice and delight in each other and their love.

Promise to praise each other’s love more than wine.

Commit to looking for acts of love.

Delight in acts of love by your spouse.

Homework for women

Women, you can be specific in you praise of your husbands love.

Look your spouse in the eye and smile and say to your sweetheart,

“Your love is delightful to me.”

You picked up your clothes.

You did the laundry for me.

You work hard every week to provide for our family.

You lead and guide our family using the Scriptures.

You listen to me when I need you.

You are there for me when Im sick.

You open the door for me.

You forgive me and are not angry with me when I sin.

You are patient with me.

You are getting better and better at loving me.

You try your best to understand me.

You draw me closer by your acts of love.

You say the sweetest things.

You shepherd my heart closer to Jesus.

In all these ways I see God displaying His love to me through you and it is delightful.

Women, show your love to your husband so that he can see it, delight in you and praise your love more than wine.

22 Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body. 24 But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything.”  Ephesians 5:22-24

Think of the ways in which the Bride of Christ is to love Jesus and love your husband the same way.

Homework for Husbands

Think of at least 10 loving things your wife does and list them here.

  1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Read through this list of 100 things a husband can do for his wife and commit to doing at least one more thing today then more and more for your wife thus proving your growing love for her.  You are hers.  You belong to her.  Give yourself to her.  Make her happy and happier.  Deny yourself time, money and sleep for her happiness.

Don’t forget the most important spiritual things like studying the Bible with her, praying with her, fasting, going to church, shepherding her heart closer to Jesus etc.


What loving things does the husband in the Song do in these verses

He satisfies her desires 1:4, 2:4. He is there to shepherd her 1:8, He overcomes her insecurities with sweet words and also compliments her fearless, powerful and swift pursuit of him 1:9-10,  He admires her eyes1:15.  He provides a luxurious resting place 1:17. Says sweet things like complimenting her beautiful moral character in the midst of trial 2:2.  He is there for her when she needs him 2:6, 8:3, 8:5.  He provides 2:3 and protects 2:3, 3:8, 4:8.  He is ready to listen to her and gets her to be sincere when she feels safe 2:14.  He gives himself to her 2:16.  He is there for her wisely loving her when she doesn’t feel it 2:17.  He compliments her outer beauty 4:1-7, 6:4-9, 7:1-7.  He compliments her inner beauty of love 4:9-10.  He praise her virginity 4:12.  He lets her know he is satisfied with her 5:1, 7:5.  In times where she may find it difficult to listen to him he encourages her with sweet words 5:2.  He is her best friend 5:16.  Even when naked he makes her feel unashamed 4:1-7, 7:6-9.  He possesses the most powerful love and holy jealousy, that cant be quenched and is priceless Song 8:6-7.

Since he is so loving he is altogether lovely 5:16,  His reputation is good and his name sweet 1:3

Love as Christ loved

25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, 26 so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27 that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless. 28 So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself; 29 for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church,30 because we are members of His body. 31 For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and shall be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.32 This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church.33 Nevertheless, each individual among you also is to love his own wife even as himself, and the wife must see to it that she respects her husband.”


Men,  think of the ways in which you Heavenly Bridegroom loves you and love you wife the same way.

1  He gave Himself to and for you so give yourself to and for your spouse.

2  “I will never leave you nor forsake you.

Never ending.  Faithfully, always, constantly.  This speaks to the duration of your love.  It is never ending.

3  He praises and rejoices over His Bride.  Look at these verses and what do they tell you about God’s rejoicing over His Bride Israel?

God rejoices over Israel

King James Bible
The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.”   Zeph 3:17

Jesus praises His Bride.

The master in the parable praises and rewards his servant the same as Jesus will praise His Bride when they meet in heaven.  What does the master/Master say to the servant?

His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You were faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.”  Mathew 25:23

The husband praises the love and nobility of his excellent bride in Proverbs 31:28-29

“Her children rise up and bless her;
Her husband also, and he praises her, saying:
29 Many daughters have done nobly,
But you excel them all.

The husband praises the wife because she is worthy of it.

a woman who fears the Lord, she is to be praised”  Prov. 31:30


Don’t hold back what your wife is worthy of, praise both her inner and outer beauty.

4  Jesus intercedes and prays for His Bride because he loves her.  So pray for your wife.  Ask for her concerns and pray for them.

5  Jesus gave his life for His Bride and all husbands ought to do the same.


Look to the place in the Love Song where the husband praises his bride and look for similar situations in your courtship and marriage where you could praise the one you love.

He praise her acts of love in Song 1:6, 4:7-10, 6:8-9

He praises her fearless, powerful and swift pursuit of a closer relationship with himself in Song 1:9.  Therefore he praises her internal beauty and compares her to a mare in battle.

He praises her external beauties in Song 1:10, 1:15, 4:1-7, 7:1-6


“Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart”

Questions for men.  Homework

In what ways have I given myself to my wife, so that I can keep doing them?

In what ways am I failing in giving myself to and for my wife?  What can I do to change and show her my love?

What have I done today to grow my idea of love?   What can I do to get a better understanding and sense of what love is?  Now do it!

Memorize Solomon’s Song of Songs 8:6-7

love is as strong as death, its jealousy is as cruel as hell fire.  It is a flame above all other flames.  Many waters can’t quench it and rivers cant overflow it.  If someone where to give their whole household for love it would be utterly scorned.

Love is strong, its jealousy is cruel like hell fire.  It is a flame above all others, is unquenchable and priceless.

How does you seeing, delighting in and praising your spouses love show the power of love to unite and draw her closer?

What would such actions have power to do?

Would it hurt or be cruel to not do so?

How would doing so help make love unquenchable?

How much value would you put on a love that did such things?

How much value would you put on a wife that did such things?  Would she be “worth more than rubies“? Proverbs 31:10

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.

Sunday morning to the kids.
Sunday night with the 5th graders
Friday afternoons at Good News Clubs. Sponsored by Child Evangelism Fellowship.
Friday Nights with the Kids teaching through Pilgrims Progress, I did this 2x
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.
