Imagine that you and your spouse are building a jigsaw puzzle, but you don’t know what the picture on the front of the box looks like. Now imagine that you have different ideas of what the picture you’re building should look like, and neither one of you have the right picture—and you’re speaking to each other in different languages. This is how far too many Christian couples experience the “gift” of sex.
But there is good news! God has shown us the picture on the outside of the box—a picture of His covenant love for you. And every single puzzle piece of yours—even those that represent sexual pain—has a place.
