What is the kingdom of God?

 Every kingdom has 4 basic components:(1) a ruler or rulers, (2) subjects, (3) a domain or area of rulership, and (4) laws. Gods kingdom is no different. It has a ruler, subjects, domain and laws.   
   However, because Gods kingdom is a revolutionary kind of kingdom, these 4 basic components take on unique aspects.
   To begin with, Gods kingdom has no erthly ruler, its ruler is Jesus Christ, who reigns from heaven. Earthly kingdoms periodically change rulers and policies. In contrast, Jesus is eternal, and His policies dont change." Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever"(Heb. 13:8).
   Who are the subjects of the kingdom of God? the Jews? No, Jesus told the jews quite pointedly, "I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken from you and given to a nation bearing the fruits of it"(Mt. 21:43). Who was this nation to whom Jesus said He would give the kingdom? The Romans? The British? the Americans? NO....it was none of these for the Scriptures tell us, "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave not free, there is neither male not female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. A d if you are Christs, then you are Abrahams seed, and heirs according to the promise"(Gal. 3:28, 29).
   So all of us who belong to Christ---all of us who are genuinely born again---we are the subjects of this kingdom. We have become the heirs of Gods promise, the citizens of His new nation. In writing to Gentile Christians of his day, Peter addressed them with the following words:"You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclain the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy"(1 Peter 2:9-11).
   So the subjects of Gods kingdom are called to be a holy nation, a kingdom of priests, just as the Israelites had been called(Exodus 19:5,6). However, the kingdom was taken from the Israelites and given to a nation that would produce the fruits of righteousness---the nation of born again believers.
   One unique aspect of the kingdom of God is that its subjects dont occupy a certain portion of the earth, like the subjects of other kingdoms. The citizens of Gods kingdom are interspersed among all nations of the world. This feature has caused continual conflict for the kigdom of God. Thats because its citizens always live under 2 diffferent kingdoms---a kingdom of the world and a kingdom of God.
   Jesus told the Samaritan woman, "The hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father"(John 4:210. Gods kingdom would have no earthly capital nor shrine.
   All of this was something beyond the experience of both the Jews and the Gentiles of Jesus' day. the kingdom of the Israelites had encompassed a specific grographic area. So had all of the kingdoms of man. The Israelites had always had a physical location where theur tabernacle or temple was placed. For a thousand years, that place had been Jerusalem. Every human kingdom has an earthly capital, but Gods kingdom does not.

Song of Solomen 3:4

"..I found him whom my soul loveth: I held him, and would not let him go...."

Reflecting on "To Love Their Husbands"......
The physical union between a man and a woman is so beautiful, so otherworldly that God uses the intimate relationship to illustrate our relationship with him(Ephesians 22-33).
"This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the Church"(Ephesians 5:32).

Traits of a good helpmeet
   A good helpmeet glories in answering her husband needs.
   She learns to know his needs even before he is aware he has them.
   She empties her mind of the cares of this world so her body can respond to him with eagerness.

Traits of a wife who is in danger of disobeying the Word Of God
   Accuses her husband of lust toward her because he wants to be intimate more than she does.
   Accuses her husband of being insensitive when he needs to be intimate and she doesn't feel the desire.
   Excuses her lack of wanting to satisfy him intimately on the grounds that _________________...(You fill in the blank, the excuse list may be VERY long).

Make a new habit....
   Make a list of personal plans of how you are going to love your husband. Be sure you come up with lotsd of bright ideas. I would suggest at least one special date a week... Plan on different addition to your "birthday suit" each week......Have fun!!!!

Getting serious with God...
   The Song Of Solomen is the 22nd book of the Bible. It is a love song/play that was written by Solomen about his wooing and wedding of a shephard girl.      
   All 8 chapters tell the story of longing for the lover, finding the lover and what the lovers did when they were together. Most writers find a need to turn the passage into a spiritual picture of Christs love for the Church.  I certainly believe that old Solomen was thinking of the sexual expression of his love for her when he wrote it, and I think the same when I read it. What do you think? As you read "God's" novel aboaut the intimate relationship, ask yourself if you feel toward your husband the same hunger as the shepherd girl did for her lover. Make a written list of things you are goint to do that will start a "change" reaction in your actions. Your feelings will follow suit.

Several good reasons to be Sexy for your man.......
   It's fun!
   Its healthy...several studies prove regular         intimacy makes a person healthier.
   It provokes a msn to appreciate you.
   It causes Him to feel good about himself.
   It mellows a woman out and helps keep her hormones balanced.
   It safeguards your husband from wily, sinful women trying to mar his intregrity.
   Children benefit from having a mother and daddy who are terribly in love.  
   It is intended by God  to be an earthly example of divine worship and intimacy.
   Makes sweet babies........   :)

Until later,,,,,,

The kingdom that turned the world upside down..

What the apostles preached...
   You may be thinking to yourself, "Okay, maybe Jesus preached about the kingdom, but it was different with His disiciples. He told them to preach about the new birth and salvation, not about the kingdom, right"? wrong. When Jesus commissioned the disciples, he specifically told them to preach about the kingdom.   Notice His preaching instructions: "As you go, preach, saying,"The kingdom of heaven is at hand."......He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick....Heal the sick there, and to say to them, "The kingdom of God has come near to you"(Mt. 10:7, Luke 9:2, 10:9). Please understand that these are not a few isolated proof texts. In nearly every passage where Jesus gave preaching instructions to His disciples, He told them to preach about the kingdom.
   You no doubt remember the disciple who said he would follow Jesus, but that he first had to bury his father. What did Jesus tell Him? "Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kigdom of God"(Luke 9:60).
   But please don't misunderstand me. I am in no way minimizing our need to be Born Again and to be saved. These are crucial aspects of the Gospel. However, they are a means to an end---entering the kingdom of God.   Jesus never intended that His followers would preach about salvation and the new birth apart from the kingdom. The kingdom is an absolutely crucial part of the gospel. When we tell people aboaut salvation--but say nothing about the kingdom---we are not preaching the Godpel.
   And what gospel was it that Jesus said would be preached in all the world before the end? He said, "And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come"(Mt. 24:24). A gospel is being preached throughout the world today, but it is the gospel of the kingdom.

A great big Thank-you!!!

   As I was just finishing up this book, I received a large box in the mail It was full of nice home canned apples and pumpkin bread mix...the office ladies who received the box could smell the wonderful aroma through the box.....Since I did not recognize the name of the sender, I searched and finally found a letter explaining the wonderful gift! here is her letter for you to enjoy. We ate the apple pie the next day....
   Dear Michael and Debbie;
Hello! My husband and I are very thankful to you both. Love your videos on marriage(Husbands love your wives, wives, honor your Husbands), I found myself apologizing to my husband many times. We watched the wife tape first, and a week later my husband said it was time to watch the husband tape. As he put it on, he jokingly said to me, "I'm a little scared," It was great!"  
  Well..., then I read the Holy Sex book and WOW!, Thanks alot!!! That is when I decided to send you my apple pie in a jar and the pumpkin spice bread, which are 2 incredible aromas to have baking.
   My husband recently commented on how great God is, and he said that  ayear ago he would have said it was God who was breaking us up(my fault for trying to play his conscience), but NOW it is God bringing us closer together!
   I cannot tell you enough how grateful I am(ARE YOU!!!???), I can see the peace and joy even in our children. I personally think every woman should read the book, and I have already passed it on to several friends, and they and their husbands are also very thenkful. I am currently talking to my pastors wife to see if she might want to read it.
   Mu friend and I joke that even when we are older, she will teach wives how to submit, and I will teach them to be" suggestive"  with their husbands. Smile!! Oh, what joy life is becoming in our house. (How is yours  ladies?) I am thankful to God for being soooo patient with me...Well, enjoy your treats, we are enjoying ours!!!

 His Help Meet....

Ladies...How is your intimacy with your DH...This is what keeps HIM AT HOME!!!!
You  may laugh, but , it is the truth, that is how men are made.....to NEED their women...

Continuation of "The kingdom that turned the world upside down".....

A different Kingdom...
The year AD 30 began like any other year. Jewish priests still offered daily sacrifices in the temple. Farmers worked in their fields,      an women washed their clothes inthe streams. Fishermen hung uptheir nets to dry on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. But suddenly a prophet named John burst upon the scene! Clothed in camels hairand a leather belt, John made a striking figure. And he brought withim a startling message---the kingdom of God was at hand!
   the kingdom of God was at hand? to the Jewsm this meant that the messiah was about to come. It meant the overthrow of rome! It meant they would soon have back their independence as a nation. No wonder that Jonhsmesssage caught everyones attention. People began flocking tohim to find our what they needed to do to prepare for this kingdom.
   However, when John identified Jesus as their long awaited Messiah, most  Jews were not excited. Jesus of Nazereth??? He didntseem a all like the Messiah they were expecting. He was obviously no warrior. And He didnt even attempt to organize an army to liberate the Jews from Rome. In fact, He didnt even PREACH against the romans.
   What did He preach aboaut? Iwould like to ask you, the reader, that question? What was the theme of Jesus' preaching? Mans need for salvation? Gods love for mankind? The necessity to be born again? The fact that Jesus would die as as ransom for us?
Jesus certainly spoke about al of these things. And they are all essential truths. But none of them was the THEME of His message.  The Scriptures record only one occasion on which Jesus spoke about the new birth: his private talk with Nicodemus. He mentioned His dying as a ransom for us only one time. There are only 5 or 6 passages in which He even used the word salvation....
   No, the theme of Jesus' message was the Kingdom of God. ther are nearly one hundred references to the kingdom throughout the Gospels furthermore, most of Jesus' parables were about the kingdom. In fact,Jesus said that the reason He was sent to earth was to preach about the kingdom:"I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, because for this purpose I was sent"(Luke 4:43). Thats not what were used to hearing, is it? Weve all been given the impression that the primary purpose of Jesus coming to earth was to save us from our sins. And that definately was one of the purposes of His coming here. but it was NOT His only purpose.
   Where ever He went., Jesuspreached about the kingdom of God. "From that time, Jesus began to preach and to say, "Repent, for the kingdom of God is at hand....And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all  kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease,,,but when the multitudes knew it, they followed Him; and He received them and soke to them about the Kingdom of God, and healed those who had need of healing. ...Then Jesus went about all the cities and vllages, teaching in their synagoaues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people'(Mt. 4:17, 23; Luke 9:11, Mt. 9:35).
   The irony is that although the kingdom of Godwas the theme of Jesus' preaching, the message of the kingdom is almost totally missing from the gospelthat is preached today. Whats the theme of most preaching today? Its mans personal salvation, isnt it? Its not the Kingdom of 'God.......

Lyrics to a Steve Camp song....He Covers me

I usually do not post lyrics to songs on this blog, but,  I just could not let this one past my eyes, it came in the form of a poem.

He Covers me....

Oh Lord, I feel so barren and ashamed of who I am
How I often fell
I hid it well
A lie I cannot defend
So I lean upon Your mercy
As I confess my sin to You
It is no easy way
No saving face
When you finally see the truth
Let my life be fill with only You

Sometimes the pressure builds atound me
And I feel about to break
I suffer patiently from wrongs done to me
But vengence isnt mine to take
Let me glory in my weakness
Until Your strengths revealed in me
It is Your Grace alone that helps me carry on
To be the man(woman )  I long to be
Let Your life be perfected in me
(Your the Light) Until its You they see

I know that someday I will be free
the weight of sin shall be released
But for now He covers me
And though the trials never end
I learn to take them as my friend
For each day He covers me

And though heartache surrounds me
I know Your love is around me
Nothing can separate me from You
OH! Lord I know its true.....

Ladies...take this to heart...
We are going to really need it in these last days....LEAN ON HIM, TRUST Him, Depend on Him.....to be all you need and allow Him to Cover you....

Awake my beloved...

As you all know, Mondays we are going through the book, "Created to be His Helpmeet"....We are about 1/2 way through it....There is much more to cover...sooooo, stick with us....

Awake my beloved....
   This is a letter that the Pearls(the authors of this book) received from a real person...
   When I picked up your book, called "Holy Sex", I was afraid to read it. I thought you wou would tell me that what I was feeling was wrong---but you did not, and instead you have given me a wonderful gift.
   We have been married for 26 years, and our love is getting better as we grow older. This part of our mariage has always been fulfilling, we each seek to please each other. I have a wonderful partner in bed and I am blessed.
   Enjoying my husband has always been fine with me, but I have experienced a deeper longing and a "hunger" for him. I thought this was wrong. Times when I eand touched him from head to toe, for me  were feelings of adoration and sometimes worshipof him, and I felt it was all wrong. I loved him  sooo much, and I desired to pour all of my being into him, but I struggled with whether it was right to do so.
   There are times when I am so into him that at the end of our intimacy, I weep. He has asked me why, andIi can't explain, other then, with all that I am I feel grateful for his love. I feel completely satisfied.
   You have helped me accept that our Creator designed us to be spirit, soul, and body, and that "onenes" in flesh can be more than physical; it can have a spiritual and emotional essence that is pure.
   It was 2 this morning when I finished your book. I woke my beloved and shared myself with him without reservation. I wept in his arms afterwards, and all was good. Thank-you for your book.....

   Marriage between and man and woman is a picture of our relationship with Christ. It is a great mystery. The physical union between a man and a woman is so beautiful, so otherworldly, that God uses this intimacy to illustrate out relationship to Him.
 The Great mystery includes spiritial closeness. emotions lopeness, the intensity of feelings, and the act of loving. Marriage in all its completeness is what God chose as an example of Christ and the Church. It wasnt something figured out by Adam and Eve and passed down through the ages to us.
"Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled"(Hebrews 13:4).
   Brendas great satisfaction did not come because her husband was so spiritual, sensitive, or endowed with some special sexual gift. This couple is experiencing what God intends for all couples. In  husband and wife relationships, God always speaks first to the wife, telling her to submit , and then to the husband,  to LOVE,, Brendas relationship with her husband started with her attitude of honor and thanksgiving toward him. You can see where it took her.
   "There be 3 things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not, The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock;  the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid."(Prov. 30:18-19).

"The kingdom that turned the world upside down.." contd'

Chapter 2...The Right-side up Kingdom.....,
As we shall see shortly, thekingdom that turned the world upside down is a unique kingdom. It's a kingdom of upside-down values.
In 1978, Donald Kraybill wrote a book entitled, The upside down kingdom, in which he explored some of these upside down values of the kingdom of God. But to fullly understand this upside down kingdom, we must first look at a kingdom that was right-side up.
The Scriptures introduce us to this right-side up kingdom in the Book of Exodus, where God speaks to the Israelites:"Now therefore, if you will obey My voice and keep My convenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people, for all the earth is Mine, and you shalll be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation."(Ex. 19:5,6)
This was Gods offer to the israelites: that they could be His special kingdom of priests. And the Israelites accepted His offer. They entered into a covenant with Him at Sinai. Like most covenants, this covenant was 2 sided. IF the Israelites obeyed Gods voice, then they would be to Him a "Kingdom of prieses and a holy nation>" Like any other kingdom, the nation Israel was to have a ruler and laws. However, their King, Lawgiver and Judge was to be God Himself(Isa. 33:22). The laws of the kingdom of Israel were the Masaic Law, given directly by God.
   Despite these special features, the kingdom of Israel was still an eartthly kingdom. In most aspects, it was similar to the kingdoms of the world. It had a physical, geographic territory. Its people were a distinct ethnic nationality. They defended their kingdom with earthly soldiers, armed with swords, spears, and bows. Like all other earthly kingdoms, the Israelites expanded their territory through the use of the sword. In the eyes of the surrounding nations, the most distinctive thing about the Israelites was that their Law forbade the use of idols.
   In fact, even Gods promised blessings to the Israelites were earthly, material blessings: "If you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, ...blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increases of your herds..the Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses. ...And the Lord will grant you plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground...The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its seasosn.>>>You shall lend to many nations, but shall not borrow(Deut. 28:1-12)
   But it was not only the blessings that would be matyerial. If the Israelites broke their covenant, their punishments would likwise be earthly, physical: The Lord will change the rain of your land to powder and dust; from the heaven it shall come down on you until you are destroyed. The Lord will cause you to be defeated before your enemies...You shall carry much seed out to the field but gather little in, for the locust shall consume it. You shall plant vineyards and tend them, but you shall neither drink of the wine or gather the grapes;  for the worms shall eat them"(Deut. 28:24,25,38,39).
   In short, the ancient kingdom of Israel was a right-side up kingdom. Its pattern was even understandable to the other nations of the world. In fact, in many aspects, ancient Israel was modeled after the same pattern on which their nations had been built. The primary difference was that the other nations imagined it was their gods who had established them as a people. They believed it was their gods who prospered them materially when they worshipped these gods. And they believed it was their gods who punished them with droughts and famines when their gods were displeased with them. In many ways, the world view of the Gentile nations was quite similar to the world view of the Israelites. The primary difference was in matters of religion and morality, not in matters of state.
   But the ancient kingdom of Israel, which was predominantly earthly, was not intended as an end in itself. It was meant to be a tutor leading the Israelites to something far grater----a kingdom that would truly not be of this world.

"the kingdon that turned the world upside down.." contd'......

PLEASE remember, one must read this whole story from the beginning to the end, .....PLEASE read the previous posts....
   One might think that the next day the Crusaders were filled with remorse for massacring closr to 100,000 people, many of whom were little children. But not at all, for they were certain that their Lord Jesus christ hda given them their victory and was smiling down at them as their happy King. After all, the Pope himself had put out the call for all good religions to go and free the Holy Land from the Crusaders. He had assured all others the complete forgiveness of sins for any who went on the march.....
   One eye witness states...."Now that the city was taken, it was well worth all our previous labors and hardships to see the devotion of the pilgrims at the Holy Sepulcher.  How they rejoiced and exulted and sang a new song to the Lord! For their hearts offered prayers of praise to God, victorious and triumphant, which cannot be told in words. A new day! A new joy! New and perpetual galdness! The consummation of our labor and devotion drew forth new words and new songs from everyone. This day, I say will be famous in all future ages, for it turned our labors and sorrows into joy and exultation. This day, I say, marks the justification of all Christianity, the humiliation of paganism and the reneweel of our faith."This is the day that the Lord hath made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it," for on this day the Lord revealed Himself to His people and blessed them."
   But did Jesus view this massacre as something joyous? Had the Crusaders truly advanced the kingdom of God? Or had they done great harm to it?
   After all,. 1100 years before, Jesus had planted a kingdom of Love. His subjects were to be known for their love of each other. Not only that, they were to love their enemies as well. Their own King had described Himself as gentle and lowly in heart. The first subjects of this special kingdom had turned their world upside down----not with the sword, but with words of truth and acts of love. So what were people who claimed to be subjects of this kingdom of love and gentleness doing in a distant land, massacring the inhabitants of Jerusalem?
    Because my eternal destiny and yours are intricately bound up in this story of the kingdom that turned the world upside down.
Its along story. But its one that needs to be told.

Until next weeek...the rest of the story....

EXCEPTION!!!!!! Intimacy perversions...

Intimacy the way God intented is the ONLY way to have what God ordained as normal.....intimacy between a Man and aWoman....Any other way is not the way God intended......
Pornography has increased this abomination. It is a filthy practice and medically dangerous. God, the master creator, made a "natural use" of the woman for intimacy. Any man who practices intimacy other than the way God has intended, is automatically suspect for other deviant activity.
"For this cause god gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise the man, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust of one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their thinking, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do the things which are not convenient" Romans  1:26-28
If you know of any men that" intimately" handles any child call somone!. Dont keep it a secret, that is how sooo many, end up in the state of a crazy person.
"It were bettter for him that a millstone were hanged around his neck, and he be cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones." Luke 17:2
Ladies, the Scripture is clear....lets not ignore it....

Continued...the kingdon that turned the world upside down"....

 This is Continued from last week....
    However, the offenders(enemy)s hsrled their own fiery missiles back to the towers, in an attempt to set them on fire. the offenders hammered the towers all day long with catapulted rocks. The missiles and arrows rained back and forth throughout the day. The crusaders fought bravely, but they were unable to secure a foothold. Some of their siege towers had been battered into ruins. One of them had been burned to  the ground. Both sides quit fighting when night fell.
   On the morning of Friday, July 15, the Crusaders renewed their ataack. This was the day that the bishop had prophesied they would take the city. But, that didnt look likely. They were all exhausted from the sleepless nights and the previous days fighting. By noon the Crusaders were greatly discouraged. They were weary, and they seemed to be making no progress.  They were hopelessly outnumbered, and the walls of Jerusalem held tight.
   They finally halted their operations and held council. About half of them were ready to call off the futile siege and hang the bishop who made the false prophecies.  However, while they were still talking, a knight on the Mount Of Olives bagan to wave his shield to the others signaling them to advance. At his signal, the men began to take heart, and they renewed their attack in earnest. The battering rams went back to work, and some of the Crusaders began climbing the walls with scaling ladders and ropes.
   The city offenders(enemy) had stacked a virtual mountain of hay and cotton bales inside the city walls as an additional defense. But some of the archers under the command of Godfrey of Bouillan succeeded in setting those bales on fire with flaming arrows. when the wind changed, huge clouds of smoke blinded and choked the offenders(enemy). The shower of fire and smoke forced them from the walls.
   Seizing the moment, Godfrey quickly released the long drawbridge of his tower, and his men fearlessly streamed over the walls. In mere minutes, the Crusaders secured this section of the wall, which allowed their fellow soldiers to scale the walls with their ladders. some of the invaders reached one of the city gates and were able to open it. Waves of Crusaders swept through the opened gates.
   Although they still were heavily outnumbered, the offenders(enemy) reeled back in disbelief and confusion. Only hours before, it had appeared that the Crusaders had been defeated. But now they were swarming into the city!!!  Stunned, the offenders(enemy) fled from the Crusaders in disarray! Suddenly, the whole city was engulfed in mass panic, trying to escape from the Crusaders. Womem scramed and children cried as the Crusaders did away with every person they met.
   The Crusaders saw themselves as the medieval equivalant of Jehu and his army, who did away with the Baal worshippers of their day.

Continuation of Hormones 101......

   PLEASE don't go off the deep end, this is for the woman who has a husband, and not to make those who don't,.... feel less worthy of Gods love. As with all, "eat the meat and spit out the bones"...
   Hormones respond to stimuli. You remember the story of Ruth. She gave her baby to old Naomi to nurse. It is a fact that an old woman who has not had a baby in twenty or more years can produce milk in her breasts and be able to nurse a baby. It  just takes the physical stimulation of the baby attempting to nurse to provoke her glands into producing milk. Even a woman who has never been pregnant can nurse a baby if a baby stimulates her brests by nursing. It might take a few days, or even a few weeks, but if she sticks with the stimulus, it will work.
I will repeat a known medical fact: Hormones respond to stimuli. A  woman whose heart and mind are focused on pleasing her man has hormones ready to be awakwned to answer her husbands desires. Before those hormones kick in and get active, a good woman should respond with great enjoyment toward her husband simply because she finds joy in HIS pleasure.
   Dont talk  about menopause; I know all about menopause, and it is a excuse. It IS uncomfortable. Do you think your body is special and has special needs? Do you know who created you, and do you know he is the same God who expects you to freely give intimacy to your husband? Please stop excusing yourself (of course, if there are physical paroblems, that is an excuse!) Try and determine in your head to find a way to stop excusing yourself ,and find a way to provide the pleasure  your husband wants only from you. Your creator knows your heart. When you truly love and reverence your husband, the very thought of him loving the likes of you should thrill your soul and make you long to give him pleasure. If your heart is right with God, you will focus on his needs and lay aside your own selfish, bahaviour. The hormones are there, ready to be unleashed. Go to your husband with the intention of having a good time, with him. A sober woman plans ahead.
