(I was tempted to make this the shortest OysterBed7 post ever,
but felt more should be added to clarify….)
Not spoken to God in awhile?
“Though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me,” Psalm 27:10.
He wants to hear from you.
“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you….” James 4:8.
“I sought the Lord and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears,” Psalm 34:4.
God cares about us on a personal level.
“He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young,” Isaiah 40:11. I cannot think of a sweeter picture. The Sovereign Almighty Creator taking time to hold his most immature and weak close to his heart.
I posted a picture on facebook of a man in uniform listening intently to a tiny little girl, just a toddler. The man’s face showed a combination of tenderness and consideration. He didn’t just disregard this tiny little girl.
That’s how I see God and his desire to relate to us.
God walked with Adam and Eve in the Garden. After their eyes were unveiled to good and evil due to not heeding His command, He sought THEM out. If we think about it, prayer is just a conversation. If this is the case, wouldn’t the conversation in Genesis 3 be the first prayer? It’s interesting to note, that God initiated that conversation.
Most importantly, He showed us through Jesus Christ that he wants a personal relationship with us. Why go to the extreme of sending a sacrifice for all our shortcomings (SIN), if a personal relationship isn’t desired?
Because He cares for us on a personal level, He cares about our marital sexual intimacy. It’s no more or no less than his care of our honesty, our patience with one another, our respect of one another, our love of one another.
But, since OysterBed7’s focus is the low-libido wife, I want to underscore that it’s OK to pray for your sex life.
There’s no time like the present to start!
