Seeds from Eden

Seeds from Eden | Wonderfully Made

God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. {Gen 1:27}

We come into the world boldly. Lungs longing for air, bellies yearning for milk, we cry out and claim our place in the great space around us, ready to begin. The world is our garden, ripe for exploration, and we joyfully play and discover in it, just as Adam and Eve did when the world was new.

At some point, though, we start to lose this passion for discovery and creation. At some point we are told Eden is not here and now, and our creativity begins to lose its strength until we pull up our tender roots from the Garden, and wander into the world while our hearts still long for that holy place.

I think in order for us to create, to let go and live a beautiful life of art, we must first see ourselves as creative beings. To do that, I think we need to connect with the place where creation began.

So, this week, let’s journey back to Eden in our hearts and our minds. Let’s walk hand in hand with the Creator in this holy, creative place, and ask ourselves: What is Eden like? How does it feel? And how do we feel when we envision ourselves in it?

While I was writing this post I really wanted to talk it through some more so here’s my first vlog!
