How To Find A Mate:

Right out of a Song of Solomon Tommy Nelson Devotional:

Everyone asks me how to find the man or woman of their dreams. The best way I heard on how to pick a mate was this. You run as fast as you can for Jesus Christ, commit your life to Him, love Him, sell out to Him, and stay devoted to Him. Then you start looking to your right and left and see who is running at the same speed. And you wave at them. And if they stay up with you, after a while, say, “Come on over!” And you’re running together. That’s how you find your mate. When I met Teresa, I wanted to spend my life sharing the Gospel, she wanted to spend her life winning people to Christ. She wanted to bring kids to the Lord, I wanted to have children that loved the Lord. By God’s grace, if we keep doing it right we’re going to go a long time.

    How true….it’s amazing how hard it can be to follow. If there is one thing that I have learned it is that I want the next person I love to have the same LOVE for JC as I do. I don’t think I realized how hard it would be otherwise. and what a pressure it was on Dwain to not be following God when he knew that was what I needed. This is Awesome, thanks for sharing.
