Titus 2 Tuesday

Becoming a

"A wise woman is a good lover." Solomon's Song of Songs

Several months ago I was invited to a wonderful "Titus 2" event.  And I was a little uncomfortable & surprised by the speaker (Joanne Frank) when she began to talk about "SEX".  Yes ladies, I did say it.  And she broke it down so beautifully biblically.

1 Corinthians 7:1-5, Song of Solomon, Genesis 2:24 Proverbs 5:18-19 & Hebrews 13:4 breaks it down perfectly. In your quiet time I encourage you to read through them.

Also, have any of ya read the book of Solomon's Song of Songs?  Can we say "steamy"

As follower of Jesus we need to realize the Lord gave us a beautiful gift of "sex" to share with our husbands.  Trust me, I had to change my attitude through prayer and seeking advice from my "WOW" (Wise Older Woman) about the subject..  And I have to tell you,  Only through Jesus Christ can I say my relationship has improved with my husband.

Here is a list given to me through Titus 2 that helped me with my good attitudes about lovemaking & not so good ones too. Let  me know what you think?  And maybe some new ideas that can encourage others & has worked for your marriage.  

Wrong Attitudes
1.Sex is dirty
2.It is my duty
3.It is only for men to enjoy
4.He only loves me for my body
5.To experiment and try new things in our
lovemaking is un-spiritual

Right Attitudes
1.Sex is a gift from God between a man & woman in marriage(Genesis 2:23-25)

2.It is a privilege
3.It will bring me physical pleasure
4.God made my husband with a biological need for sex, as well as for food & water
5.Be adventurous for him and be available.  God will bless this time together.

Enjoy your day

Pope John Paul gave the world a masterpiece in writing and perspective with his "the Theology of the Body" a gift on the beautify and holiness of the human body and marriage.
