Yes, you read the title right. What does God have to do with sex? Or the Holy with the…um…….Humping? EVERYTHING!. God not only invented it, but He called it good! Having a healthy sex life within a marriage is what he CALLS us to! (Can you hear my husband cheering from the other room? Wait, you can’t hear it over your own husbands’ cheering?) Did you miss that verse in the bible? Thou shault get it on? Seriously, there are a ton of scriptures that talk about sex and God’s design for it. Adam and Eve were naked and felt no shame.
Proverbs 5: 18-20 tells us :“May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth. A loving doe, a graceful deer— may her breasts satisfy you always, may you ever be intoxicated with her love. Why, my son, be intoxicated with another man’s wife? Why embrace the bosom of a wayward woman?”
I will paraphrase this for you. Men-Enjoy the Boobs God gave you and don’t look or touch others. Women- You go girl! God tells us to enjoy each other’s bodies that HE has brought us together and made us ONE. The act of sex seals that deal.
In the book Sheet Music Dr. Leman says, “Designer Sex” is sex as the Creator intended it; sex that uses his manual as a guide………Why do you think God reserves Sex for marriage? I believe that one of the reasons (which gets very little attention, unfortunately) is that good sex is not easy and it’s very personal.”
It takes some work but God wants us to get pleasure from it. I love the people that think God is all about removing fun from our lives. Again, within our marriages he says “Go for it! Connect in a way that you are not to connect with anyone else. I have given you this one person to enjoy fully!” How do we apply this? Maybe as women we need to think of it as a Holy act…..not a chore, not something that requires everything to be perfect. Not some unrealistic expectation that each time has to be earth shattering. Maybe we need to see sex and our husbands as God sees it. It is a Holy act of two souls connecting and becoming ONE. It is a Spiritual union that we are not to have with anyone but our husbands. Enough talk…..Go DO IT! Practice makes perfect!
