The OysterBed is celebrating the first year with a little make-over! Hope you like the little changes.
If you are just joining the Sex Drive Transformation Challenge, WELCOME and please see the INTRODUCTION HERE.
(Husbands, if you are reading, you are invited to pray these scriptures and thoughts over your wives.)
Who knows why random things float up like flotsam in the ocean of my mind. I strain to remember my sister’s birthday, “Is it the 25th or the 26th?” And yet, an insult from 14 years ago transports in like Kirk on an away team.
I’ve got to attach an anchor and let it sink back down to the bottom. Is this repression? I don’t think so. Usually the memory has to do with an incident that was resolved. If I wallow in that past pain, it can color the rest of my day. But, better than tying an anchor to it, what if we just let it float away to never be seen again? Just release it, let it go, erase it from your page. Maybe not release the incident, but accept the feelings and process the feelings around the incident. Free yourself of them.
Why do the negative images crop up more than the positive ones? It probably has to do with the theory that it requires hearing seven positive thoughts to counteract one negative.
Live in the present. Let the past be gone, especially if it was resolved.
If we are accepting and connecting with where we are at, in the present, maybe we can work on accepting and connecting with the skin we’re in and accept/connect that it’s OK to be a sexually charged wife who enjoys intimacy (physical/emotional/spiritual) with your husband.
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing and perfect will,” Romans 12:2.
I am going to connect with my feelings and let bygones go bye-bye. I am going to focus on the present and allow myself to connect with my sexual energy. I am going to connect with my husband through sexual intimacy and therefore also connect to our creator.
