I was recently talking to one of my sisters about a post i put up last week. i expounded on saying physical intimacy is a small part of a marriage. i am attracted to my husband but there are many things more important and more valuable than that.
trev chose to spend his life with me and made me the mother to his children. he trusts me with his finances and believes i add to him spiritually and naturally. how beautiful is this?
in addition, hearing trev cry out in prayer in the wee hours of the morning is more attractive than his physical attributes. watching him study the bible to become the man of god that this family needs brings indescribable satisfaction, joy, and hope!
if i cherished physical intimacy over all of this, i wouldn’t really appreciate him for who he is, what he adds to me, and what we are building spiritually and naturally.
my advice: don’t be moved to marry a person because they are attractive. how good they look won’t matter when you start building a life together. the important question is do they love god, do you agree on the type of life you want to live? do they add to you, correct you with love, and bring you closer to god. be picky and wait on god. you have one life to live so live it with who god has for you if his plan is to give you a spouse.
