A Quantum Leap Towards Libido
I think a lot of women think they are powerless when it comes to their sexual interest. Either you have it or you don’t. But, that’s not true. Sexual interest isn’t either/or. You can re-build it, if you decide to make the effort. In rebuilding, however, you just might discover that sexual interest looks different from when you first got married.
Deciding to improve your sexual interest is a lot like deciding to paint your bedroom walls. You don’t just say, ” I wish my walls were blue,” and expect them to paint themselves.
You have to first decide which shade of blue.
Then you have to consider your budget.
Then you have to get your painting supplies from where they are stored or buy new ones.
Then you have to prepare the walls and your working area.
….paint one coat, let dry
….paint second coat, let dry.
….return wall hangings and clean up.
When it comes to re-animating your sexual interest, you first commit to doing whatever it takes to put your marriage bed as a priority.
Then you consider your budget, will there be doctor visits to check your hormones or overall health?
Then you prepare your intimate area, both your body and your bedroom.
Next, watch the personality of your marriage blossom.
It says in Eph. 3:20, that the Lord is able to do far more than we even imagine.
Ask the Lord to reveal areas in your heart, body, or mind that can be changed, molded, or strengthened to increase your desire for your husband.
Making an active change in your life, including increasing your sexual desire, requires meeting God halfway with your actions. He will provide the avenues. You must drive them.
Mismatched sex drives and low libido do not have to be permanent conditions!
There is so much hope for you to regain your sparkle!
Hope is not an over-inflated wish. Being filled with hope is setting a goal and knowing you will be active in attaining it. It is being confident the Lord will endow you with wisdom and strength to know which steps to take toward re-animating your sexual desire.
“Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than we ask or think, according to the power at work within us,” Ephesians 3:20.
