Since I published yesterday’s post, I have been pondering married intimacy.
Is married intimacy the fruit of drawing near to my husband’s heart, of knowing his heart and sharing mine? I believe that level of drawing near, knowing and sharing must be intentional. Conversations need to be promoted and facilitated. When these conversations are serendipitous, they occur in a context in which the pressures and distractions of daily responsibilities are suspended. Some of our best conversations happen while taking walks together or traveling in the car. Some happen over a leisurely meal in the ambiance of a fine restaurant. How are you promoting the intimacy in your marriage?
I want to know my husband’s thoughts, his deepest dreams and longings, his greatest fears. I want to be known as a woman after my husband’s heart.
Father God, help me intentionally seek to know my husband’s heart.
