The Daily Breath of God

The man said, "This is now bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, for she was taken out of man." For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame. Genesis 2:23-25This is a beautiful part of God's Word that describes his joyful plan for a man and a woman and this is the way it was until sin came. In sin things became shameful, embarrassing and confusing. Man began to lust for other women and in so doing the relationship with his wife became difficult. The woman began to lust for another man, wishing she had married someone different and things became difficult and exhausting. Grace refreshes all of this and gives the man and the woman a new place to start. Grace gives the freedom to love and encourage instead of always wishing for someone or something different. Being overwhelmed by grace is truly the most renewing and enjoyable way to live through this life. It heals the wounds of the past and gives a new beginning every day for the man and woman overwhelmed by grace. Today please allow yourself to enjoy the freedom of being overwhelmed by his grace. It is a love that expresses itself without condemnation or shame and therefore refreshes the one you are with. It is everything you have hoped for and you and everyone around you will enjoy the beauty of grace.
