Don’t Bash What You Hate, Promote What You Love.
This simple slogan is how we put Philippians 4:8 into action.
“…whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me – put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”
This simple slogan is how we can put 2 Corinthians 10:5 into practice.
“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”
These two verses were life altering when I began my journey toward understanding the many dimensions of sexual intimacy. I had to quit bashing sexual intimacy as something I hated. I had to quit RSVPing to the husband bashing parties.
In this day of ‘if it bleeds, it leads,’ kind of news reporting, we’re used to everything being awful, it’s almost uncomfortable to hear genuine positives. The positives we often hear are marketing strategies to sell insanely fabulous items that fall very short of amazingness. So, we get used to praise being not just meaningless but outright deception.
Misery loves company, right? That’s what the prince of this world would have you believe (2 Cor. 4:4). He’s a liar (John 8:44).
I think it’s easier to talk about our misery because we live in a world where everything is tinged with negativity and fear.
Fear has kept Christian sexual intimacy in the closet. Many spouses would love to celebrate the gift God has given to marriage. However, fear keeps us from frank, tactful discussions and therefore some marriages are dying.
Through the next month, I’ll be promoting what I genuinely, authentically love about my journey toward understanding sexual intimacy from the viewpoint of independent thinker who happens to be Christian and suffers from low-libido.

I Love New Positions (you’ll be surprised what this is about.)
