Have you ever craved chocolate so much that you snipped open the corner of the chocolate chip bag and satisfied that longing with a handful of those miniature morsels? Personally, I am not a "chocolate person", yet, I have "needed" a sweet so desperately that I have robbed the next batch of chocolate chip cookies of a few of its melting wonders. Assuming this is an experience many women relate to, I was excited to hear our good friends the Pattersons share an analogy using chocolate in their seminar Good Lovin'.
Actually, Doug spoke to the men and it was Nicki, while speaking to the women that shared this profound thought: What if God told you that you could not have chocolate until you got married? And once you are married, you cannot get yourself chocolate and you cannot buy yourself chocolate; you can only have chocolate when your husband gives you chocolate. Each evening when you go to bed you see this large supply of sumptuous chocolate sitting next to your husband's side of the bed. After what seems like hours of yearning for that beautiful chocolate you finally "sweetly" ask for a piece of your husband's chocolate. He appears irritated with your request, yet, reaches over and hands you a piece of chocolate. You eat the chocolate while wondering, "Why, doesn't he just give me chocolate? He knows I love chocolate. He knows I crave chocolate. Doesn't he know giving me chocolate makes me feel close to him? Why does he make me ask for chocolate?"
Is this analogy making sense? As chocolate is to us, so sex is to our prince charming. Women, our husbands crave our making love with them. Just as you are not a glutton because you crave chocolate--so your husband is not a pervert because he craves your good lovin'. Let's try to remember, God had a hand in making our man hungry for us. God made him visual; knowing this, indulge his senses. Be generous! Speak his language--you won't be disappointed!
