You have ravished my heart,
My sister, my spouse;
You have ravished my heart
With one look of your eyes,
With one link of your necklace.
10 How fair is your love,
My sister, my spouse!
How much better than wine is your love,
And the scent of your perfumes
Than all spices!
11 Your lips, O my spouse,
Drip as the honeycomb;
Honey and milk are under your tongue;
And the fragrance of your garments
Is like the fragrance of Lebanon.
Song of Solomon 4:9-11 NKJV
The Lord is remembering women in these times. The early church fathers did a disservice to women in many ways and spoke ill of the female gender. Many believe these early misconceptions have left a harmful residue in Christianity today.
We are valued and loved! Women are highly favored of The Lord.
He seeks relationship with us. The Lord wants to heal the wounds that women have suffered in the name of Christianity, at the hands of the ill-informed and the wicked. Listen to your heart.
Our 10th tenet is like sunshine and rain to a farmer. Trust is the key that unlocks the power within each beauty treatment. This is why “Walking as the Bride in the Kingdom of God” is an ongoing process; it is a way of being that develops as you go.
26 Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? 27 And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? 28 And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, 29 yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! 31 Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ 32 For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you (Mathew 6:26-33).
The above scriptures encourage us not to worry. Not worrying is easy if you truly trust The LORD. Birds do not worry. They understand that the same providence that fed them yesterday is the same today. Every one of us tends to have trouble with trust. How we were raised, the societies we live in, these have contributed to our lack of trust. We base our trust in God on what has happened to us- our father left us, our brother betrayed us, etc.
If I can make one promise about this path, it is this; It is safe to trust in Jesus. You must know Him, intimately.
You are the Beloved.
