3) Created Eve

The story of creation is a beautiful thing. One may think that they know all there is to this classic story of how woman was created but do you really?? Wouldn't it be truly grand to spend some time with Eve, over iced tea and swinging slightly on a garden swing and let her tell her story of how it was in the beginning.....

 

The story of creation is a wondrous event. God creates the Heavens and the earth and everything in them. And His creation is utterly,perfectly glorious! Sometimes we forget that our story, the human story, begins with glory, beauty and goodness. In Genesis 1 we read of the account of God setting His own image on the earth. He creates a being like Himself. He creates a son.

 

The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. (Genesis 2:7)

 

It is nearing the end of the 6th day, the end of the Creator's great labor, as Adam steps forth, the image of God, the truimph of His work. He is pronounced the son of God. Man is magnificent, truly a masterpiece. And yet....the Master says that something is not good, not right. Something is missing.....and that something is Eve.

 

And the Lord God cast a deep slumber on the human, and he slept, and He took one of his ribs and closed over the flesh where it had been, and the Lord God built the rib He had taken from the human into a woman and He brought her to the human. (Genesis 2:21-23)

 

Eve is the crescendo, the final astonishing work of God in the creation story. Woman. In one last flourish comes to a finish not with Adam but with Eve. She is the Master's finishing touch. Eve is captivating!

 

Did you once believe as I did before investigating the Scriptures further, that God created Eve second to man, that she was second fiddle so to speak and not 1st chair in God's eyes?

That He see us (men and women) as equals in His image?Do you now see that we as women were created to be the crown of creation, with His mighty image blazing on our hearts. What does your heart do with being called the "crown of creation?"

 

The essense of woman is Beauty. We as women, each carry beauty within us. There is beauty in our smiles. Beauty in our sparkling eyes. There is beauty in our nurturing comforting touch. There is beauty in the way in which we relate to others. For some, this beauty is disguised, locked and hidden away.....but there is a spark there just waiting to come alive. As was the case of Toulah of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" and how stunning she did become when she soon discovered that her heart's desires truly mattered.

For some beauty is so easy, so freeing...they cannot help but splash beauty on everyone they meet. A woman's beauty is ageless as she pours forth her God-given gift in every size, color and lanquage. Beauty invites, Beauty rests. Woman was meant to be the beauty in every story. Every woman...and yes, especially you!

 

Have you experienced the healing, restorative power of beauty through another person? Who is truly beautiful to you inside and out?

 

How I would love to visit with Eve and learn 1st hand that she is tender, merciful, inviting, fierce, fiercely devoted, and beautiful....and to know that is God's plan for every woman...especially me. That I was made in His image and that my heart would reflect His glory in all I say and do. That I would be captivating in His eyes. It is my prayer. Glory!
