Genesis 5:2 'Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.'
Formed from man, but created by God.
In the image of God, His replica on earth.
Not an after thought
Made off two equal parts, both becoming one
Both given dominion
Above land, above sea, the most supreme of all creation.
And although only him was banished from the garden,
But like the support that she is,
She stuck by her man.
Despite his demotion,
She kept him in motion
Yes, though she fell when tempted
But he fell too!
Sinned because of her ignorance,
For wisdom was all she sought.
Blamed by her protector,
Who beside her stood idle.
Sentenced to a life of sorrow,
Not knowing her tomorrow,
But except that her joys’ would be birthed through pain.
When all she craved was knowledge.
Her passion was for his heart,
For from his rib she was created.
Not his feet to be trampled on,
Or his back to be ignored,
Or his head to be dominating.
But the bone that protects his heart.
Like the Holy Spirit is the closest to God heart.
She functions in the same capacity
From grace to grass was not what she expected,
But Eve the ’source of life’
She fulfilled her destiny
She birthed mankind
The original first lady.
Standing tall in the face of dys-functionality
When what once brought her joy now birthed more pain.
Face to face with death, none like she had experienced before
One young son dead in one arm
While with the other waving goodbye to her banished heir.
Still her faith was not shaken!
The mother of faithfulness
For she remembered the words of her maker
‘That her son will crush her head of her enemy’
Holding on to nothing but faith, she birthed the son that would lead us to Christ.
The way, the truth and the life.
