This was painted during worship service at Nancy’s church. One of the people fell in love with it and gave it to his granddaughter for Christmas. She took it on the bus to school for show and tell, without asking her parents first. Proudly she told the class about her painting, telling them that it represented God’s love that never stops, but keeps coming and coming. Later the principal called the grandfather into her office because the little girl not only showed the painting, but, got up on the table in the cafeteria and told everyone that they all needed Jesus and needed to get saved! She was only 8 years old! The principal told the grandfather that she learned more about Jesus from that little girl than anyone else she had ever met.

The Holy Spirit is calling us to a greater intimacy and passion for Jesus. He is calling us to drop what we are doing and just spend time alone with him. The Song of Songs is a fore shadow of Christ wooing his Bride. Jesus is madly in love with us! He is calling us to arise and come away with Him into that private time of prayer and intimate worship with Him.

The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.  Song of Solomon 2:13

“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.”  1 John 4:7
