Good Morning! Wow it’s been a little while since my last post…I apologize. Seriously though I’ve been working on updating the blog, and for someone as technically confused as me, said updating is a lot of work! Slowly but surely you will see some improvements coming soon:) Anyways, how has your week been so far? Mines been pretty low key—getting excited for my family to come and visit us this coming weekend though! I haven’t seen them in months, so needless to say I am a little excited…! Can’t wait to show them around Dallas, and just hang out/catch up. It’s been WAY too long.
In other news, I was reading in Genesis a few days ago about Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden when I came across this verse…
“And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.”
If Adam, after eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, had gone ahead and eaten from the tree of life as well, we would all have been destined to live forever in a state of sin and brokenness—completely separated from God.
So, in a way, God expelling Adam and Eve from the garden was for their [and our] own protection. While we may live in sin here on earth, we have the promise of eternal life in heaven—completely in unity with God. We don’t have to live out eternity separated from him, but can look forward to forever spent in his presence.
Even when we mess up, God is still watching out for us. Always. He wants what’s best for us and nothing less—even if we don’t fully understand his greater plan at the time.
Just some new revelation God gave me into that particular piece of scripture—I had never really thought about it in this way before. Well, I hope you all have a great rest of your Tuesday! God Bless:)
