Love is so uncommon and rare in our generation. Lust is destroying and deceiving the way relationships are supposed to be.
Hello :) My name is Shelby. I am a Christian, a real Christian. I made this blog in order to post my findings, prayers, and hopefully meet fellow Christians that I can connect with. I want to be clear that I go based off of God's Word. If He hates it, I hate it. If He loves it, I love it. I aim to be His extension and reach out to His lost Creation. I will be honest and it will anger people, but I would rather be hated for saving souls, than loved for holding hands down the path to hell."Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised." Proverbs 31:30
Yet sexual desire, the appetite for sex, is not given in equal measure. It is typically given in greater part to men. Why is this? The answer, I’m convinced, goes right to the heart of the husband-wife relationship. God commands that men, husbands, be leaders. Men are to take the leading role while women are to follow. God intends that men take leadership even in sex and, therefore, he gives to men a greater desire for it. This way men can lead their wives, taking the initiative, taking care to love their wives in such a way that they wish to have sex with their husbands. Generally speaking, a man finds intimacy and acceptance through sex while a woman needs to first experience intimacy and acceptance before she can be prepared to enjoy sex. And so God gives the man a sexual appetite so he can in turn provide for his wife’s needs before she provides for his. His sexual appetite cannot be separated from his leadership. If the woman were to lead in this regard, if she were to always be the sexual instigator, the husband would be far less likely to pursue his wife and seek to meet her unique needs. Do you see the beautiful dance here? The husband has a desire that only his wife can meet, a desire for his wife; therefore, he takes the lead in seeking to fulfill that desire. He does this by meeting the desires of his wife that will, in turn, cause her to see and appreciate and eventually fulfill his desires. And then, in that act of consummation, God grants a grace that surpasses the mere union of flesh and blood.

Wow… Just wow. It truly is a gift meant for marriage!
Biblically speaking, you cannot deny that the “dating” we see happening today is to far removed from God’s principals. Bible aside, even if you do not believe in God, you have to acknowledge that what we have going on today is NOT working.
Premarital sex: in the search for “the one” people go through multiple partners, couples living together (“Yeah I’m committed to you..sort of.”) STDs, pregnancy, and divorce. What the world views as “normal” today is not acceptable to God. Don’t take the normal road because it will take you to a normal destination. Could it be that God has something higher and better for His people?
In today’s society, people are on the search for “the one” in order to find satisfaction and fulfillment. And it’s true, to be fulfilled in life, we have to find the one.
Jesus is the One. Your spouse is the TWO.
Pursuing relationships more than pursuing God is idolatry. Make him the One, and he’ll prepare you for the two.
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33 (ESV)
Women, stop falling head over heels in love with guys simply because they “seem nice.”
Gentlemen, If you don’t like what you’re getting from her, reexamine what you’re GIVING her.
A Biblical relationship calls you to have Jesus in common more than anything else, and it calls you to serve God better together than you would apart.
What number is Christ in your life?
Couldn’t have said it better myself :)
