I am blessed to have finished my study on the Song Of Solomon. It was a blessing to read God’s Word and to learn from every verse. Surely, God spoke through them and taught me so much about marriage. We Continue Reading
Song Of Solomon 8:6,7 (KJV)
6 Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.
7 Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned.
It is love that makes us joyful. We all want more of it but many of the same do not give it. How can we have what we cannot give?
Lord God, I know that many people are now consumed with worldly things that take their time away from their family, friends, spouse and most importantly You. At the same time, their desires for things have not stopped. They want so much and at the same time are unable to give themselves. I know that this is because Your love is missing in these people's lives. Because people have filled their lives with so much darkness Your love has no place in them. I pray that people will be humbled, this day. May they desire something greater in their lives. May they see what people are doing for them and realize that they are not doing so much themselves. May this prick their hearts and have them look to You for forgiveness and mercy. You have the power to change their lives and scatter the darkness that is within them. As many people I know are like this, I ask that You help them as well. It is love that this world needs. Help them and every person understand that loving one another is Your calling for us. We surely cannot say we love You if loving one another is not a part of our lives. Help us be valiant and faithful to You and to our fellow men and women. I trust in You God. I love You. Amen.
When God’s love comes into our lives, our desires are flipped upside down. Instead of wanting so much, we instead give what we can. Continue Reading
Song Of Solomon 7:10-12 (KJV)
10 I am my beloved’s, and his desire is toward me.
11 Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field; let us lodge in the villages.
12 Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see if the vine flourish, whether the tender grape appear, and the pomegranates bud forth: there will I give thee my loves.
When marriage feels broken, keep believing in God and showing His love to your spouse. There are still great things in store for your lives.
Oh Lord God, many times we say things and never follow through it. This is especially difficult when we know that we promised to be there for our spouse, through thick and thin, and have strayed from doing so. I know that many people know this to be true. They made a vow at marriage to love their spouse and do anything for them till the end, and now they find themselves doing things only for themselves and some may have been unfaithful. I know that I am a culprit of this as well. I know that I have not treated my spouse the best over these years and I am sorry Lord. Even my words now don't do anything unless I show actions. And one thing I know Lord is that once the flame goes out, it is hard to light it again. I surely need Your help on this matter, as do many other people in marriages. We realize that we have not been the most faithful husband or wife, that we promised to be, but trust in You now and pray that our marriages will be healed. Yes Lord, come and put Your healing hand on my marriage and others that are broken. May we remember our vows and start to be true to them all over again. You have the power to do this in our lives. I know that You can do all things. I love You Lord. Amen.
My question is, if you feel like the love in your marriage is over or dormant right now, wouldn’t it be great if those trying times were over? Continue Reading
When God's love finally comes and rescues you, what you do with your time will dramatically change. The time you focus on God and His will, will not only be elevated, but your time with your spouse will also increase.
Song Of Solomon 6:1-3 (KJV)
1 Whither is thy beloved gone, O thou fairest among women? whither is thy beloved turned aside? that we may seek him with thee.
2 My beloved is gone down into his garden, to the beds of spices, to feed in the gardens, and to gather lilies.
3 I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine: he feedeth among the lilies.
Oh Lord, I pray that people's hearts, ears and eyes will be turned to You and, if married, to their spouse. So many people are wasting their life away doing things that are not pleasing anyone, especially their spouse. When their focus is on electronic devices and the TV, it is only drawing them away from what is most important in their life. Not only are You neglected, God, but their beloved spouse is also left out of the picture. And what these people are replacing in their lives with is really disgusting. Lord, not only are people neglecting their You and their spouse but also filing their lives with so much lust, covetousness and sexual sin. I know how bad these things are since I was a victim of such things. You know God, better than I do, how such filth almost destroyed my marriage. It is truly a miracle God, that my wife stuck with me, since that time. I give You all the praise and her thanks for being there for me when I needed it most. You lifted me up and brought me out of the darkness and she continued to trust in me. Although I had fallen short, I knew that my life was not over yet. I could still get back on track with You, God, and my wife. I love You and my wife more than ever now. Thank You Lord. Amen.

When trying times come, never lose hope. Continue on the path of looking to God and finding answers. Never stop caring for and expressing your love for the person that maybe in trouble.
As a witness for Christ, many times people try to call me out for not being true to God and what He has to say and do through me. However, my testimony of Jesus and His gospel is true. I will continue to shine His light to all the world.
Song Of Solomon 5:9-12 (KJV)
9 What is thy beloved more than another beloved, O thou fairest among women? what is thy beloved more than another beloved, that thou dost so charge us?
10 My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand.
11 His head is as the most fine gold, his locks are bushy, and black as a raven.
12 His eyes are as the eyes of doves by the rivers of waters, washed with milk, and fitly set.
