Every Daughter of Eve

Things that Make Me Sad and Leave me in Awe--About Eve

Genesis 1-3 makes me sad when I think of all the insecurities, selfishness, confusion, pain and sorrows that Eve passed on to me and every other woman. 

She had the perfect life, walking and talking with God each day, living in the garden paradise God created for her. 

I can't imagine what it was like for her to feel completely secure with her body, personality, relationships and purpose, to enjoy perfect health and a problem-free life.

Eve had every reason to believe in God's spotless love, but she chose to believe the Liar of all liars. 

She damaged God's perfect world and left us all broken. But our Lord allowed invited us to have a relationship of wholeness in Him. 

I'm saddened by Eve's sin and mine, but awed by God's love.

  1. Paradoxically, it is our sin, and Eve's original sin, that allows us to see the full extent of God's love! Maybe that was part of His plan all along...

  2. I don't think Eve's sin was part of His plan, but no doubt He knew the choice Eve would make. So given the gift of free will, as with many things, God used what the enemy meant for evil and used for good for many.
