2 Timothy 3:6 says, “…for among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sin and led astray by various passions.
Looking at 2nd Timothy gave me an idea. Kendra and I are both weak women who are expecting to gain love when our bodies look a certain way: her gaining her pre-pregnancy body, and me getting down to a normal size. Do we need to have the perfect body so men will stay in lust with us? Hardly, because our bridegroom tells us differently. The Song of Solomon contains love poems between a husband and wife, but also is read as our interaction with Jesus as our bridegroom.
In Song of Solomon 1:15 it reads:
In this verse, and throughout the rest of the chapter, we are shown Jesus’ love for us, not lust. He doesn’t expect us to be a size 2 with a flat stomach and revealing clothes. He’s in love with us, making us strong women in him rather than weak women led away by falling in lust.
