Posts Tagged ‘wife of your youth’

verses 18-19: “Let your fountain be blessed, And rejoice in the wife of your youth. As a loving hind and a graceful doe, Let her breasts satisfy you at all times; Be exhilarated always with her love.”

What’s the best counter-weapon to the devil’s attack of lust? Men, it’s to “rejoice in the wife of your youth”. Ladies, it is to delight in your husbands. There is absolutely nothing wrong with sex, when it is used the way God intended: between a man and a woman who are married to each other. Any other use of sex is wrong, period! That’s about as plain as I can put it.

While we are talking about husbands and wives, I want to relay some thoughts here. Last night, I visited a co-worker and friend at the funeral home; her husband had died after a 6-week battle with heart, lung, and kidney problems. It’s been a very difficult time for my friend. They are young; her husband was 43, I think. As I left the funeral home, I was reflecting on the adjustments they’ll be going through: a wife without her husband, their daughters without their daddy. It’s times like this that it can be hardest to see God’s plan, but He does have a plan and a reason. I would ask that you keep them in prayer. My thought and prayer today, reflecting on this is: husbands, love your wives; wives, love your husbands; parents, love your children; and children, love your parents. Life is way too short to waste on squabbles, arguments, misunderstandings, and hurt feelings that happen in our day-to-day lives with our families.

Have a blessed day in Him!
