The gift of Sex

Is Sex a gift from God? The answer is yes. Sex was designed by God our creator as a special gift that allows a husband and wife to express oneness in intimate and exclusive love and to share in his plan for procreation (production of offspring). I know you may be wondering;  “Ok. if sexuality is a gift from God how could it possibly be so wrong if you are not married?” that is a good question.  In Genesis 2:18 God says; “it is not good that a man should be alone, I will make him a help meet for him.”  Therefore, sexual drives are the most natural high human bodies can experience. The downfall is that those sexual drives can be destructive when they are uncontrolled or misused.  I’ve learned that any intimate sexual relationship outside of monogamous fidelity within the covenant of marriage is condemned as sexual immorality. The fact that God says a man should not be alone he is simply telling us that he did not create sex for our own  personal satisfaction. When a man and woman come together, a chemical reaction takes place in the human brain. Sex is regulated and purposeful. When God said “therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife and they shall become one flesh.” ( Genesis 2: 24-25) This means having unity between the two. Two souls intertwined to one soul, one bed, and one family to glorify God.  Earlier I mentioned that sex was created for procreation because God says; ” Be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth..(Genesis 1:28)” Sex was also created for comfort because by sharing yourself with your spouse it becomes a beautiful satisfaction that is deeper than ever. In Proverbs 5, it talks about God’s view of sex in marriage as being exciting, erotic, intoxication and a loving partnership. WOW, SEX IS DEEPER than you think…..

Yes, it may feel good and all that for a moment but its real topic that becomes misconstrued a lot.!  When I think back at the times I had sexual intercourse I wish I can take every moment back. It only lead to distortion and emptiness in my life. To actually believe that I had romantic nights of passion would be an understatement.  What really transpired was that I became ungodly soul tied to someone and emotional distress.

Can I get all the way real???  Although, the “world” ( social media, coworkers, friends, family members etc,) thinks SEX SALES and it can be exercised as a stress reliever or just because you’ve been dating someone for a long time its cool to have sex.  No, No, No, No and NO. The world says its okay to have sex but according to Romans 12:2; ” Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” As believers we are expected to exercise self-control in overcoming improper sexual impulses by the power of the Holy Spirit.  It’s not going to be easy but there is nothing too hard for God and I believe that it can be done. I’m doing it by faith and work because knowing what I know now, I want to live a life that is pleasing to God. If I can do I know you can too!

Prayer to God:

Dear Heavenly Father,

Please guide my footsteps to take the right path in this life. That I may take every step closer to your will. Walk beside me Oh Lord, and as you will never forsake me, help me to not go astray. Father, break every change that has joined these ungodly soul ties to me. Cleanse my soul Lord. Make me brand new in your sight. I ask that you grant me discernment to recognize these ties that are not like you. I thank you Lord for what you have already done. Have your way in my life.

In Jesus Name Amen.

ISN’T GOD AWESOME?

God is amazing- for simply who he is. He is amazing for all that he has done for you and he is doing for you now seen and unseen. No matter what your issues are everything will work out for the good because God is with you through it all. It can be very stressful to always worry about  the now-the bills you have to pay,the children you have to take care of, the tasks that you need to accomplish and even the future things you desire. But if you know that God will supply all of your needs- no matter what it is. That’s hope.

That’s the joy that you have to feel inside of you when you know you are going through things.

Read Psalms 27- for encouragement. This will encourage you everyday- read it everyday, write it down and memorize it.

I had to go in the bible to get words of encouragement and strength to keep me going because at times I said to myself that ” I can’t do it anymore and I want to give up” I lost my faith.The reason why we get this way is because we lack feeding our spirit with the word of God. When you really stop doing what you’re doing ; walking your own path, and ask God for his help-that directs you to read his word.

His word can get you through anything and everything. I have been reading the word, highlighting the scriptures and applying it to my life etc.

Here’s a prayer to God:

Father,  we want to say thank you for being the supplier for all our needs. We know that we would not make it without you. We ask that you help us in our time of trouble, help us have more  desire to seek you. more courage and wisdom to get through. We ask that you help us to be patience and wait on your plans for our lives. We just thank you for the words that are in the bible. We thank you for other women that are in our corner to encourage us each and everyday.

In Jesus Name Amen
