How Do I Cuddle Without Inviting Sex

Image
According to Steve Pavlina, One question that a few women asked me essentially boils down to this:
I really love cuddling, but I have a hard time inviting guys to cuddle with me because they might think I’m inviting them to have sex with me, and sometimes I just want to cuddle. How can I ask for cuddling and not have a guy think I’m offering something sexual?
Believe it or not, this can be an issue for men too. Let’s ponder this situation from some different perspectives since the same issue can have multiple causes. 
Are You Communicating Clearly? When it comes to discussing emotional matters, many people are notoriously poor communicators. They express themselves in such vague and fuzzy ways that it’s no wonder they’re frequently misunderstood. They drop confusing hints instead of being forthright and direct. They insinuate instead of invite. If you want to improve your results in this area, first get comfortable with communicating clearly and directly. 
In fact, even if you’re not …

Lizette Borreli's 'Increasing Intimacy Without Sex'

Image
Finding that special someone to date and falling in love is the easy part; keeping a happy and healthy relationship is the hard part. Busy schedules, surprise visits from (annoying) family members, unpaid bills, and poor communication can lead to frustration and doubts, such as: Why are we so disconnected? Shouldn't true love be easy? Are we meant to be? Relationships are constantly growing and shifting, but couples can take these six steps that will help them foster intimacy — without sex.
Self-Disclosure And Eye Contact
Partners who are more open with one another by divulging their feelings are able to develop an instant bond. It may feel risky to be vulnerable or to reveal hidden parts of ourselves, but deep bonds can be established by asking a particular set of questions. A study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology described participants' reactions after asking each other questions such as:
For what in your life do you feel most grateful? What …

Enjoying Greater Intimacy In Your Marriage

Image
When a husband and wife achieve true intimacy, of course, they will naturally desire to share their romantic feelings at the deepest level. By God's design, one of the most pleasurable ways for couples to express their profound love and appreciation is through His gift of sexual intimacy.
The Art of Making Love Some would say that "having sex" and "making love" are one and the same, but there's an important distinction between the two. The physical act of intercourse can be accomplished by any appropriately matched members of the animal kingdom. But the art of making love, as intended by God, is a much more meaningful and complex experience. It is physical, emotional, and spiritual. In marriage we should settle for nothing less than a sexual relationship that is expressed not only body to body, but also heart to heart and soul to soul. This intimate union, two becoming "one flesh," is both the symbol and fruit of genuine, heartfelt romantic love b…

Kari Jobe: ‘Don’t Get So Caught Up In The Idea Of Marriage’

Image
Worship artists’ Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes have been wonderfully blessed with a loving marriage. Jobe even described her marriage to Carnes as “a taste of heaven.” These two have waited, saved, and have sacrificed to ensure that this day, this dream will become a reality.

Jobe posted on her Facebook page an advice for people searching for a spouse that God has someone special intended for them and that they should not be so much in a rush to find someone to be with that they miss out on God’s wonderful plan for them.

“If there is one message I’d like to relay to those who are still searching for a spouse, it would be this: don’t allow yourself to get so caught up in the idea of marriage that you miss the voice of the Holy Spirit,” she said.

Carnes and Jobe built their relationship around God, and even during their wedding, they made time to worship Him. “It was the strongest presence of God I have ever felt,” the singer described. “Getting married made me think of how much God longs …

Purity Is Not Just About Abstaining From Sex. What Else Is It Then?

Image
As Christians, we have always been encouraged to walk in purity all the time. To many, purity is saying no to sex before marriage. But there is a lot more to it than that. Below are three truths about purity that every Christian should take to heart:


Purity is from Jesus.

Left on our own, our lives will always be stained with sin. Purity is not in our earthly nature that is why Jesus had to bridge the gap for us by cleansing us and giving us a new identity. The old has gone and the new has come. When we accepted Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior, our hearts regenerated and we were made into a new creation! Jesus deposited his holiness and purity into our new identities. (see 2 Corinthians 5:17)


Purity is not just abstaining from sex; it is a heart issue.

Jesus said in Matthew 5:8 (NLT), “God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God.”

While it is true that not having sexual relations outside the boundaries of marriage is good and should always be considered and emb…

How Can Two People Who Are So Dissimilar Stay Together

Image
How did God nurture their relationship? Joanna always played it safe. She was the quiet one in school who was content to live in the background. She liked comfort and predictability.

Then she met Chip.

Chip was everything Joanna wasn’t: risky, dangerous, care-free, and an extreme dreamer.

Completely opposite. Completely different. Completely in love. Despite their differences, their chemistry has made their show — HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” — cable’s top program. So what keeps them together? How can two people who are so dissimilar stay together in an era where many call it quits because they’re just “different people”?

Holiness is who God is not who we are. When you talk like God, walk like God, do your everything like God, if God is in you, when you carry God in you that is where you become holy. The force that produces change in us is called Dynamics
Holiness is what bring us to God. To be sanctified is the way to Holiness and Holiness is double Sanctification. SIN
Sin a rebellion against the Laws of God. 1John 3:4
"Whosoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness"
Sin is All unrighteousness. 1John 5:17
Sin is the root of all evil Rom 5:12.
Sin is the omission of no duties John 4:17
Know that sin is a spirit and a garment of all evil without sin there is no evil.
THE REWARD OF SIN
Proverbs 14:13-14
"Even in laughter the heart may sorrow, and the end of mirth may be grief.
The backslider in heart will be filled with his own ways, But a good man will be sanctified from above." 1) Sin brought sickness, there was no sickness until sin came through the disobed…
