(Husbands, if you are reading, you are invited to pray these scriptures and thoughts over your wives.)
Slang words come and go. Words are christened with new definitions each generation. Some ‘out of style’ words resurface.
There is a word that has taken on a slightly different tone in the last decade. Sexy.
In my high school years, I don’t remember using sexy as an adjective much. There was foxy, cute, and decent. Sexy was reserved for an adult woman, like Sophia Loren, who was voluptuous or an adult man who was well formed or had a certain charisma. It was rarely used to describe anyone under the age of 21.
I heard someone describe their iPhone as sexy. There are pinterest boards named Sexy Inanimate Objects.
Sexy is evolving to encompass a broader definition than a person who illicits a sexual response. If so, I think I like Rob Bell’s wife’s interpretation of what sexy should be in a wife’s mindset.
“Sexy is when it feels good to be in your own skin. Your own body feels right. It feels comfortable. Sexy is when you love being you.”
That confidence is crucial for sex drive transformation. You have to allow yourself to be comfortable. Are you already comfortable in your skin? What can you do to help improve if you aren’t comfortable?
Asking the Lord’s guidance to improve sexual intimacy with your husband is in accordance with His will! Marital Sexual Intimacy is God ordained. He’ll show you the path. He wishes you both to enjoy its bonding and pleasure.
“For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control,”
1 Timothy 1:7(NIV).
“This is the confidence we have in approaching God; that if we ask anything according to His will, he hears us. And if we know he hears us – whatever we ask – we know that we have what we asked of Him,” 1 John 5:14-15 (NIV).
I completely accept the skin I am in. I completely accept that I am beautiful to my husband. I completely accept that my body is wonderfully created for sexual intimacy and experience with my husband.
