Hello MH community. This is Trucker 53 doing his best to post like a pro. My first go was really short and to the point. I hope it had at least one reader even if it was me. I’m hoping this go will be quite a bit better otherwise I’ll have to borrow my daughter, whose 23 by the way, to post for me, she’s way more interesting than me anyway, and better looking too.
Anyway, I was hoping to make a go at testimonial rather than a story this time. Well here goes, I hope it benefits somebody. I am a 1 Corinthians 7 Christian man. I am a firm believer in the truth that God made sex, approved it, gave it to us as believers and told us to go have fun with it. And based upon what I have read thus far, everybody seems to enjoy sex immensely.
My journey to 1 Corinthians 7 began when my wife of 23 years and I wed. Do to familial dynamics on her end she had a lot of baggage, to say the least like we all do I suppose. It wasn’t long till all that baggage was dumped out on me. For not long after marrying and the birth of our child, she (my wife) began exploding on me. Usually, it was once a week and then became once to multiple times per day. Needless to say, I shut down emotionally. Fortunately, my wife was put on some medication (at her insistence) because she hated what she was doing to me, and ultimately us.
Well, very long story short, twenty years later the Lord shows up in the cab of my truck while I was on a run. I guess he figured I was less likely to evacuate a moving vehicle. Anyway, the Lord very gently, in His God way of doing things lets me know that I have never really dealt with what my wife had said and done to me, and I’ve never mourned the condition of my marriage. Well, that did it. I lost it and almost had to stop the truck for I was so convicted. Well during the next thirty minutes or so I let God have it. The whole dirty stinking mess of everything that was built up on the inside. I was punching the dash, yelling, screaming, cussing (like a sailor by the way) and just let the Lord have it, lock stock and steering wheel. And do you know he said? He actually encouraged me to get it all out. The cussing and everything. Because He knew that I needed to be free. And He was working His God plan to make that happen.
Well sir, I immediately… I said IMMEDIATELY!… had a change of attitude toward my wife. I felt like I loved her again. It was a great feeling I assure you. When I got home guess what? That’s right my wife and I had a fight, not over the aforementioned though, something totally unrelated. I was hurt and sulked off to bed. My dear wife decided she didn’t want to leave me that way, so she followed me into the bedroom. And when she climbed into bed with me, I did the strangest thing. I snapped around to face her, wrapped my arms tightly around her and balled like a 290-pound baby into her shoulder, soaking her house dress. When I was calmer, we talked at great length about what I was going through. And the cool part was she listened. I mean she actually listened to me. We hashed out some messy stuff between us. Prayed, kissed and hugged for a long time. We never did have sex that time. Good thing too, it would’ve not been that great for either of us I assure you. After that day things between us smoothed out considerably. We still rub each other the wrong way of course, like that will ever change anytime soon.
After that day things between us smoothed out considerably. We still rub each other the wrong way of course, like that will ever change anytime soon. Soon after that, we began to have regular sex. We did before, but it always seemed strained, like maybe it was forced a little. Then I got a hold of 1 Corinthians 7 and realized I had been defrauding my wife when I, through hurt and a desire to get back at her, withheld what was due her in terms of sexual intimacy and affection toward her. When I realized what I was doing, I discovered the wrong in it. I stopped. And now my wife and I are doing pretty good sexually. Unfortunately, her health has declined over the years, so sex isn’t all it could be. But that my friends is A-okay with me. We focus a lot of attention on the intimacy aspect and the oneness of our marriage. We like to kiss and hold each other close of course and enjoy the romance of holding hands and being together. The romantic side of sex should not be ignored, it can be quite satisfying as well. And of course when the event does occur… Ooh la la.
I hope whoever reads this can get something out of it. Maybe it will help you too.
Well all, God bless. I enjoy the stories. Keep ’em coming.
I hope I can write a good one later.
