The Wedding Night …
I am your gift from God, and this night has been foretold in the heavens. I’m a little afraid because, as any good wife, I want to please my husband. You see, I’ve had lovers in the past and there are regrets that come along with not waiting for the right one. Maybe there is even a little guilt because this is a special night, a magical night. And one of my most precious gifts I gave away to someone else. For God made sex to be His wedding gift to us. But my heart and soul I give to you.
I roll over and next to me is this man. I never imagined it could be like this. It’s beyond my wildest dreams. I’ve heard other women talk, but it’s nothing in comparison to this. This moment with you, this time, the way you hold me and caress me. It would have been worth the wait. I felt like we were two wild horses, who had been captured and are now set free. The fire and the intensity of it all is what every woman wants. It’s what she desires of her body; to be one with her husband. I pull my garment off, your body is wet with sweat and hot with fever. But the dew from my body will cover you and cool you. I close my eyes, I feel your lips upon my skin, against my lips. Your hands are all over me. I am your temple, your altar, your shelter, your home. My body is yours to praise.
You see my body as flawless, I am no longer ashamed of being naked and exposed. You massage my body with oil, you pull me to you hastily, upon his bed I sought the one whom my soul loves. When we make love, my body is your garden to eat from.
There are traces of your scent all over me. I’ve experienced things I never thought I would before. He completes me, he satisfies me. When we make love I don’t know where you begin or where I end. Your body encompasses my body. We are one complete spirit all though we are two individuals. We share one soul, one heart beat. We are one – just as God had promised it would be in our marriage bed.
I feel so uninhabited, so free, so carefree. The things that happen within the walls of our temple aren’t like anything I’ve ever known. The way you worship me, and praise me, I can’t explain. It’s a freedom, there are no limitations, nothing is off limit. My body is yours completely. I’ve exploded, the woman hidden within me, has been set free by her husband. I wasn’t a complete woman until our wedding night. Then I became complete. There is an intimacy that goes beyond words and beyond making love. It’s a spiritual connection. When two in flesh truly become one in spirit. For if there is to be real love between you and I, there first had to be a spiritual relationship before there was a physical one. We are now one flesh, one spirit, one soul – in Gods eyes.
There are no limitations, nothing is off limits with the one you love, the one you prayed for, the one you hoped for. For he is the promise, he is God’s revelation of love for you. I listened to women in the past, complain or make faces when it comes to intimacy. But true intimacy begins with the Father, then with yourself, and then with your husband. The marriage bed – our bed – is undefiled! And there is nothing immoral or dirty about it. It is where I worship my husband in spirit and in truth. He is my Ephesians 5 husband, and he loves me as Christ loves the church. He submits to me as I to him. I am a testimony of God’s love to my man.
I turn over, I savor this moment in time, the ceremony is over, we have fulfilled our covenant, our promises to God and to one another. I feel complete. I feel whole at this moment. If there was any remorse or regrets there aren’t any now. Because when you find the one, truly find the one that God has for you – without reservation or hesitation – you leap. On this night while as I watch you breathe, I whisper under my breathe and I thank God, for you.
