Sex is holy…

One of the biggest struggles I see in my practice is a different view of sex than God had intended. With our culture bombarding us with sex from every angle, why are we surprised that it has lost its real meaning? Let’s recall Adam and Eve. Didn’t God create Eve because He knew Adam was going to be lonely? Of course that was His reason. It says that in the book of Genesis. He created them for companionship, oneness, and to enjoy each other’s body…………yes, I said enjoy each other’s body.

Did you realize that sex is to be viewed as holy between a husband and a wife? “Holy”, you say? Yep, holy. What are your views of it? I would really like to know.

God could have created a way of having children different than the way He did, couldn’t He have? Of course! he is God….and “all things are possible with God”. But no, He created it this way for a reason.

Before I write more, I would like to hear your heart on this one………
What are your greatest sexual struggles?

    Hi Cheryl,I was struck by your March 16th post – “sex is holy…”My husband and I will be married 24 years in May and our intimate life is the best it’s ever been. We joke and say that sex in marraige is a 20 year warm-up! It’s taken us 24 years to learn to let go of everything around us – children, work, expectations, body image, etc. – and enjoy each other physically. In short, focusing on my husband (his needs and desires) has created an intimacy that completes the physical sexual act – and his doing the same makes us feel a oneness that could be seen as “holy”.Your April post talks about being a “servant” in marraige. I think this relates as much to the sexual, intimate part of marriage as it does to every other aspect of marriage. Letting go of self-serving and focusing on your spouse is what makes sexual intimacy “Holy”, in my opinion.All the best for your upcoming book release – I look forward to reading it!Lori
