Intimacy – “Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.” 1 Cor. 7:5
You know that this is an area that I truly battle with. I hide myself from the world. Hiding is how I feel safe. But, I tend to hide myself from my husband. I tend to hide from the world, I am scared that I will embarrass myself and my husband. I’m scared that when he sees the real me, he won’t love me – or like what he sees. Give me the courage, Lord, to bring down all the masks, so that I can truly be intimate with my husband. That I can completely trust him, and open myself up to him – emotionally, spiritually but also physically. Help me to open myself so that I can completely give myself to him – without holding anything back. Give me the will and the work – the desire and the opportunity – to truly become ONE with my husband for your good purpose. Please, never allow my fears or insecurities to hold me back from truly being intimate with my husband. Give me the strength to never give the devil a foothold that could drive a wedge in what has been the most amazing gift to me. Marriage is your realm, Lord. Marriage belongs to you.
