I believe all of that is possible, and more. And instead of sounding like any of the individuals previously mentioned, perhaps you’ll begin to sound a lot more like:
* Nick, who stated with tears in his eyes in a recent coaching session, “The highlight of my day is coming home to my wife. To me, she just oozes sex appeal, and it’s so easy to forget all of my problems from work and get lost in her love for me.”
* Ruth, who was asked by a nurse if she’d like a one-year’s supply of free condoms. When she responded positively, the nurse asked how many she’d need exactly. Ruth stated matter-of-factly, “Three hundred and sixty-five!”
To be held in high regard as a “great lover,” to feel “lost in one another,” to assume that you can be sexually intimate with your spouse on any given day that you desire without fear of rejection
. . . Wow! Who doesn’t want that?
So enjoy the journey of exploring the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical dimensions of our sexuality, celebrating the many freedoms that Christians have in the marriage bed, and learn to incorporate these passion principles into our relationships so that we can enjoy this gift to the fullest!
