This week’s devotional from J. Parker’s book, Intimacy Revealed:52 Devotions to Enhance Sex in Marriage is about powerful words. Powerful words can go both ways like uplifting and discouraging. Unkind comments towards your spouse can stop from sexual intimacy happening. Sex is very valuable! J. Parker stresses to “encourage your husband throughout your marriage, including the way you speak about and to him in the bedroom” (60).
My husband wowed me in the sexual department the first time we made love together and that was 15 years ago this June, and we were unmarried at this time. He was a virgin, but I wasn’t. But there was this incredible emotional connection and love for each other and I think that played a huge part in how amazing that felt. Of course, we’ve had our rollercoaster times with our sexual intimacy since then. My husband is very caring and gentle and amazing in bed though. I love the way he touches me and pleasures me. He’s been more open to trying out new things since our marriage has changed for the better and more Christ-like for the last three years. And he’s more readily available emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually to me when we make love now (just like our early dating days).
I compliment on how sexy my husband is, and with physical parts I love about him. I compliment how I love being able to connect with him. That I only want to be with him in all to end of time. He makes me feel beautiful and loved. That I feel secure with him.
