“The more womanly you are, the more manly your husband will want to be.” Elizabeth Elliot
There is something about the sparkle in our eye, the smile that says I adore you, the curves of our body, the sweet smell of our perfume, the way we move in the dark…that draws a man to a woman.
Proverbs 30:18,19 says“There are three things that are too amazing for me, four that I do not understand; the way of an eagle in the sky, the way of a snake on a rock, the way of a ship on the high seas, and the way of a man with a maiden.”
For men the physical need for intimacy is more than just physical – it is emotional. Just as we long to remain desirable to our husband’s, our husband’s long to know that they are still desirable to us. Their big ol’ egos might not let them admit it – but it’s there.
Within our God given femininity, we have the power to make our men feel stronger, more capable, more confident and loved in all areas – simply by responding to his initiatives with desire.
So this week’s challenge is:
Pursue intimacy and place the intimate needs of your spouse above your own. Give him a foot or back massage, shower together, be creative!
Seek to “kiss him like you mean it” every single day this week! Solomon 5:16 says “His mouth is sweetness itself; he is altogether lovely.” Look at your husband through the eyes of his fiance…do you remember those butterflies and your longing for him. Renew that passion.
Paula Rinehart says that for many men, “S*x is like a silent cheer.”
Our men feel stronger, more capable, and built up when we respond to their advances with a smile.
