Thank you! 🙂
Greetings in the saving name of Jesus! I just began a one year Bible reading plan and I’m starting in Genesis. Genesis, particularly the creation story, is one of my favorite Bible passages. I love learning of how God created this world, of how He thought that “it was good,” of where He first placed man, and how He created Adam and then Eve. I also enjoy reading that God knew “It is not good that the man should be alone,” but that he needed an help-meet. I love learning of my specific purpose of being a woman.
I also catch a glimpse of God’s true and sacrificial love while dealing with the deceitfulness of sin. Oh, dear Adam and Eve, caught in the moment of pleasing God or pleasing self. Sometimes we can be tempted to think that we would never fall for Satan’s trick, yet, I propose that we do every day. My Bible’s profile note on Eve reads, “Eve was approached by Satan in the Garden of Eden, where she and Adam lived. He questioned her contentment. How could she be happy when she was not allowed to eat from one of the fruit trees? Satan helped Eve shift her focus from all that God had done and given to the one thing he had withheld. And Eve was willing to accept Satan’s viewpoint without checking with God.” Oh, how many times have I myself fallen for the old trick of discontentment?! Far too many, unfortunately. My Bible also has this really neat chart which I would like to share with you.
God bless you as you go throughout your week! With much love from your sister in Christ,
P.S. Photos of the house are coming! :o)
