In Music of Songs 4:16, the brand new bride says: “Let my beloved come into his backyard and style its selection fruits.” This younger, clearly assured bride invited her husband to seek out pleasure in her. There’s nothing extra interesting to a husband than for his personal spouse to provoke lovemaking and that occurs while you and I are assured in who we’re, assured we’re liked, and assured we gained’t be rejected.
In Music of Songs 7:1-9, Solomon provides an in depth description of his bride from the sandals on her ft to the hair on high of her head. Some commentators imagine she might need been dancing earlier than him as he compiled this description.
Now you is perhaps pondering If I have been a younger bride with a lean flat abdomen and seemed like her, yeah, I’d dance earlier than my husband. However maybe you aren’t snug along with your husband inspecting you from head to toe. Or possibly he’s made a comment previously that has you feeling self-conscious. I understand it’s ingrained in us by our tradition (and maybe by some previous wounds, too) to not be an “object” earlier than any man and to be offended at any reference to your physique being some extent of visible pleasure on your husband. But, please keep in mind one thing: You’re his for all times – the one girl your husband can gaze upon and revel in with a proper coronary heart earlier than God.
Give it some thought. In case your husband appears to be like at anybody else the way in which he’s allowed by God to take a look at you, he will probably be committing adultery in his coronary heart. So, let him feast his eyes on you. Permit him to get pleasure from what he sees by taking the perfect care of your self you can, by dressing properly, smelling pleasantly, and taking a look at him with eyes that you simply as soon as had for him. Maybe as you start to take a look at him the way in which you as soon as did, he’ll return that look the way in which he as soon as did.
