Sexual Healing

I have a wonderful husband.  But, because of the rapes and molestation I went through growing up, I struggle with being OK with sex.  I go through the motions, and a lot of times pretend that I am enjoying it.  Most of the time, though, I am disgusted with it and want to throw up.  I just want to enjoy my husband.

For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died; and He died for all, so that they who live might no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf. Therefore from now on we recognize no one according to the flesh; even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know {Him} {in this way} no longer. Therefore if anyone is in Christ, {he is} a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. 2 Corinthians 5:14-17 NASB

Learn to see yourself as the Lord does. It is the enemy of God that wants to keep you trapped in the old ways of thinking about yourself. Christ sees you as spotless and pure. When you see yourself that way freedom will come more and more. That is what happened for me. I had to renew my mind to see what He sees and not what I see. Seek intimacy with Christ and this intimacy will permeate your marriage relationship as well.
