FIRST TRY (Day 3 of 7)
(Need to start at the beginning? Day 1)
We’ve been thinking and talking to God about sex for a couple of days.
But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband. The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband. For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. 1 Corinthians 7:2-4
So what would a first action or step look like for you?
If you are terribly struggling, it might be something like writing down the lies about sex you learned as a child and praying over it. Maybe pick one lie and study out the truth that could replace it. (Like “sex is just for men” becomes “sex is a good gift for married couples to share.” Begin to tell yourself that then pick another lie to study and replace and so on.)
A first try might be talking to your spouse about the kinds of words you use in the bedroom or making a date for sex once a week. (You can have sex any time you want, but a “date” is a set time that both of you can count on and prepare for.) Perhaps it’s trying a new sexual position or talking about body image with a good friend for prayer and encouragement.
What did God show you? What would be a good small step in the direction you want to go?
