Sometimes it is difficult to look around (and within) and see so many flaws and mistakes. And that may make it hard to really believe that everything was made for something better. There is something better waiting for us out there.
So it is good to remember that “In the beginning, it was not so..”
We were not only MADE in His Image and Likeness, but we were LIVING it as well. Can you imagine how perfect and glorious that was? How wonderful it all was… and could be again?
I heard that God really wanted us to partake of the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge. But he wanted it give it to us at the RIGHT TIME. But we decided to take it for ourselves – even when we were not ready for it. We didn’t wait for God’s perfect plan to unfold in our lives, we decided it would be best if we were left to our own devices.
And we are still very much like that now. We want to do things OUR way. We do not wait for the wonderful plan for God to unfold anymore. We take things into our OWN hands. And that usually leaves us even more hurt, more scarred and with more pain.
But in the beginning it was not so. And it can be like that again.
