Women of the Bible: Eve

The first chapter of the book focuses on the first woman mentioned in the Bible: Eve herself. This was a fun, thought-provoking read. Sometimes we need to recap, relive and reevaluate scriptures that we may have read in past days. It helps us to remember, reflect and appreciate scripture more. This is was happened when I read about Eve and The Garden of Eden.

It was so refreshing, and looking at all of the pictures I found online that reflected depiction of The Garden of Eden was refreshing and reassuring as well. Just to think, that The Garden of Eden was Paradise. No picture by man can do it any justice. I can only imagine. We can only imagine. Just think about when we leave this earth [the saints of God] and when Christ returns... we'll be going home to be with our Saviour in Paradise. God said there will be a new earth. A world without famine, drought, pain, suffering and disease. How mighty is our God? Glorious is He.

Here is an excerpt from the book "Women of the Bible" concerning the woman Eve and the Book of Genesis:

Lift Your Heart
"Find a peaceful setting, surrounded by the beauty of creation, to meditate on what life must have been like if you experienced peace in all your relationships, if you never suffered physical or emotional pain, if you were never confused or ashamed or guilty, if you always experienced God's love and friendship. Let your imagination run riot as it fills in the details of God's original intention for your life and for those you love.

"Then consider this: You were made for paradise. The joys you taste now are infinitesimal compared to those that await you in heaven, "But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him." (I Corinthians 2:9).

Praise Jesus.

"Father, give me a greater understanding of your original plan for our world. Help me to envision its beauty so I might live with a constant awareness that you intend to restore paradise to all who belong to you. May I surrender every sin and every sorrow to you, trusting that you will fulfill your purpose for my life. In Jesus' name I pay, Amen."

Glory, Glory!
