God wants us to experience so much more – marriage is not supposed to get boring.
It is a lie from Satan that marriage is supposed to get boring. He tricks us into settling and believing this just happens to marriage. We give up, get busy, stop intimately connecting and settle for boring or non-existent sex.
Proverbs 5:18 -19 says, Rejoice in the wife of your youth… Let her breasts satisfy you always. May you always be captivated be her love.
God gave us sex to keep marriage vibrant.
When my husband and I retreat together to our marriage bed, our world opens up to wonder. We experience deep intimacy that get sweeter and sweeter. Side by side we discover things about each other that no one else knows. Sometimes we laugh and play while other times my husband holds me in sweet embraces that feed my soul. Working on our sex life has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. It has required that I allow myself to feel and share from the core of my being, but it has been so worth it. Sex changed my marriage and it forced us to dig deep, become dependent on God, and discover more of His goodness.
A great marriage and sex life does not just happen.
Satan will do everything he can to divide your marriage and one of his most powerful weapons is to distort sex. If you want to have a great marriage, then do the hard work of figuring out what God wants for your sex life. Go after it, trusting God, giving your spouse the benefit of the doubt and taking small steps toward freedom. Be intentional to spend time together, create a safe environment to be known, save energy for each other, and bring God into your marriage bed.
