- Please remember to pray and ask the Lord to give you understanding and wisdom.
27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
1 And God spake all these words, saying,
2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
13 Thou shalt not kill.
14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
15 Thou shalt not steal.
16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.
18 And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off.
19 And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die.
20 And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not.
21 And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the thick darkness where God was.
1 My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee.
2 Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.
3 Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart.
4 Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman:
5 That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words.
GUARD HEART AND MIND – IN THE WORD
Do you find yourself going places in your mind that you really shouldn’t? Married or single, be on guard. It’s amazing how much your thought life can affect your desire for your husband and his place in your heart, and the intimacy of your relationship with him and with the Lord. Is there anything that takes the place that is only reserved for the Lord or your husband?
A beautiful way to begin to guard our hearts and minds is to allow the Lord to wash us with the water of His Word. Regarding the Exodus passage, ask the Lord to prick your conscience in the area that needs adjusting. Our inner heart condition directly impacts our relationship with others, especially with God and with our husbands.
In Proverbs, what did Solomon say to his son? What can we learn?
As women, we long for meaningful relationships. Most of us long for romance, tenderness, and intimacy. But unconfessed sin, wrong priorities, and lack of time spent with the Lord in His Word can profoundly affect your sex life in a negative way. Casual regard for the Word and its instructions will directly impact our marriages, our homes, our family lives, and our effectiveness in the church and in the world. Conversely, seeking the Lord first will profoundly affect your relationship with your husband and your sex life in a very positive way. If you are not pursuing the Lord with all your heart there is a very good chance that sexual and emotional aspects of your marriage will be stunted as well as spiritual ones. An emptiness, a disconnect, and a superficiality will exist that even our children will sense. The ripple effect spreads much further beyond the marriage bed or the four walls of your home.
Where do you need to make adjustments? Where do you see difficulties in your relationship with the Lord or with your husband?
Ask the Lord to search your heart. In your thinking, is there anything you need to bring before Him? Call out to Him! He wants you to have incredible, life-changing intimacy with Him and with your husband. There is nothing He cannot forgive. There is no feeling, no matter how angry or apathetic, that He cannot change!

1 Thessalonians 5:23-24
23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
My Own Thoughts:
All I have to say is… life is too short not to enjoy things. I didn’t remember this week in my excitement to share the other lessons I learned… this has been a fun couple of days… yep so uncomfortable right now… Until next time, I love you all and stay peculiar!
Facts girl facts!
