This morning my husband asked me, “What advice would you give to a woman who is struggling with her sexuality, but really wants to enjoy sex with her husband?”
The question came out of left field, so I muddled around a bit and then basically wandered back to talking about the battle that rages between a woman’s ears. We get so many messages about sex from family, friends and culture (and some of those conflict). We hardly know how to act and what to feel. Add a bit of injury and you’ve got a recipe for sexual struggles.
As a practical help, I suggested that a gal might get a piece of paper, draw a line down the middle and then write on one side what she feels and thinks about sex (perhaps also write down all the different messages that she heard growing up). Then she could begin to pray and ask God what He says about sex and write that info on the other side. (Not sure what God thinks? That’s where the Bible, godly friends and godly authors can help.)
This simple chart would offer a clearer picture of the struggle and give a gal some understanding and a direction for sorting out the battle in her head. God can teach us truth and set us free to be who He designed us to be ~ in and out of the bedroom.
