I love when I’m inspired by a post and then someone else also gets inspired.
This is why we do these features!!
Last week Melinda from Auntie Em’s Guide to Life read one of the features I talked about. She then expanded on it. I loved it.
She is right in her piece entitled ‘Do You See Me.‘ It’s hard to work, work, work, and feel like no one notices. <—-tweet
I’ve been there. In fact, I’m still there. The bottom line is that I’m willing to do whatever it takes to take care of our family.
Melinda’s amazing verses of encouragement remind us that He sees us always. Having someone here on earth see us isn’t nearly as comforting as knowing that He sees us always.
- Isaiah 43:1 … I have called you by name. You are mine.
- John 10:14 … I am the good shepherd. I know my own.
- Psalm 139: 1-5 … Lord, you have examined me and know me. you know everything I do; from far away you understand all my thoughts. You see me, whether I am working or resting; you know all my actions… You are all around me on every side; you protect me with your power… (there’s lots more that is really good; read this whole chapter!)
- Psalm 91:14 … He knows my name.
Back in February, I did a series with a group of amazing ladies. It was a marriage series and it was so much fun.
We talked about quite a few things but one of the hottest topics was sex.
I’m highlighting Erin from Mystery 32 for exactly this reason. I don’t see a lot of positive talk about this across the blog world. She talks about working together to get it right.
Her piece ‘Amazing Sex, It Takes Work‘ is spot on in my opinion.
We seem to live in a world that is all about the now. Doing it now but doing it safely seems to be a mantra in a lot of minds. On the other hand there is a lot of hype that waiting will make it perfect. I like her words here:
My overall point is this: We should encourage those that are not married to stay pure for the wedding night, but that doesn’t mean we pretend it will automatically be amazing right away. We should encourage virginity because of the blessing that it is and what it means for a future marriage. For those that are married, let’s encourage them to press on through the hard times, including the hard times with sex. If you are in a marriage where the sex is not what you expected it to be, hold on. You have the rest of your lives to practice and you can learn to love each other in a way that is amazing for both of you.
Thanks for reminding us that in regards to sex, practice makes perfect!! <—-tweet
