Bringing the Sticky Back

Earlier this week I wrote a post about how sex provides bonding for a couple, like two pieces of tape stuck together. I wholeheartedly believe it to be true, but I am aware of another important fact.

We do not live in a perfect world.

People make mistakes. Things happen, sometimes out of our control. I know that. Despite our best intentions, sometimes our tape gets damaged. Does this mean we're destined for a life of unfulfilled relationships? Is our bond with our potential spouse forever marred?

Absolutely not.

We have a great big God in the business of healing. He can restore. It would be easier on us if He never had to, of course, but He is the God of fresh starts, the Lord of the hurting. He never abandons used tape.

If I'm talking about you, please don't despair. Don't think you've ruined your chances of having a good marriage. Don't think you are damaged. Ask God for healing. Ask for His hand upon you. He will not disappoint you.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

Psalm 147:3
