heart

Today’s post is about Genesis 1-3, specifically Genesis 3:16. “He said to the woman: I will intensify your labor pains; you will bear children in anguish. Your desire will be for your husband, yet he will rule over you.” Today during my reading I had this beautiful picture of God’s creation and intension. It was so amazing and then I got to chapter 3 where the fall happened. I had such a heavy weight on my heart as I read it. I just kept thinking “It had been so good”. The worst part was reading about how woman and man’s intended relationship would forever be tainted. What God intended to be beautiful became a burden. When I first read this I thought why were they so stupid, but in reflection on my own sin I know I deserve the consequence from  God 10 times over.
