I am honored to be participating as a Guest Blogger in the 15 Great Women of the Bible Series hosted by Brittany @ Equipping Godly Women.
Do you remember any of your firsts? Your first date, first kiss, first day of school, first home?
Our first apartment was small & quaint, with lots of charm. We had everything we needed as a newly wedded couple. We enjoyed sharing candlelight dinners atop two upside-down milk crates adorned with a handmade quilt from my great-grandmother. The atmosphere of our home was warm and inviting, our very own Garden of Eden.
A few of my co-workers lived in a more affluent area of town, drove newer cars, and carried designer handbags. Like Eve, my thought-life and fixation on what I didn’t have was affecting the “condition” of my heart.
I had become fixated and desiring material possessions. I was now nagging my husband to find us a larger apartment with updated fixtures, a newer car, and designer handbags.
Friends, what happens when we take our eyes off God and the beauty in our everyday life and instead start to focus on the one thing we cannot have?
You know it.
The enemy worms his way into our hearts and gains a foothold. I hope you will join me over @equippingodlywomen.com for the full devotional.
Tag a friend who needs to be encouraged to stand firm in a position of thankfulness rather than desiring what we don’t have.
