I belong to my lover, and his desire is for me. Come, my lover, let us go to the countryside, let us spend the
night in the villages. Let us go early to the vineyards to see if the vines have budded, if their blossoms have
opened, and if the pomegranates are in bloom– there I will give you my love. The mandrakes send out their
fragrance, and at our door is every delicacy, both new and old, that I have stored up for you, my lover.
Song of Solomon 7:10-13 NIV
This gives a beautiful picture of the intimacy between a couple. I did a bible study this morning with my wife on this bible verse. I love how it talks about getting away together. My wife and I talked a lot about keeping worldly desires out of a relationship. Now of days, relationships never last and that is because people feel that everyone is replaceable. Because of that true intimacy can never be reached.
There are layers of intimacy in a couple. Sex is only one. Spending quality time and communicating your wants and goals are another. The only way to do this is by making time for each other. Do not let life keep you from your spouse. Make a schedule for each other and keep it. Make regular dates and communicate about everything. After my 10 years of marriage, I have learned this. I am far from perfect and have made a ton of mistakes. But doing these things I’m writing you today is what kept us away from divorce many times in the past. Stay strong and keep the world out of your relationship. God bless you all!
