From the Garden…I Saw You!

From the Garden… I Saw You!

I waited not for Adam to accomplish a great feat

And I waited not for the applause from men before taking note of him

For I created him, loved him, approved of him

Even from the garden

Where no man could see, where no man could go

I loved him, for he was Mine!

How sweet were the days I walked and talked with Adam

My longing every day to meet with him, my wonderfully made son?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

We reveled in each other’s company

We spotted wild game and fruitful vines

We skipped rocks across the streams

And I taught him how to love and cherish Eve

For I created him, loved him, approved of himsmall Eve

Even from the garden

Where no man could see, where no man could goSunlight Shining Through Forest

I loved him, for he was Mine!

No secrets were kept between us

I was enough for Adam, enough for Eve

I was their source, their joy, their constant companion

Their very life

Until…

 Adam saw himself, He wanted more

His soul cried out

What about me?

What does the Almighty withhold from me?snake

I thought we were friends

Why can’t I be my own man and make my own way?

Be like God, be my own master?

Why these restrictions?

So we killed the lamb, sprinkled its blood, placed angels on guard,

And removed from Eden the children we had created to prosper and to bless—forever!

But from there, the garden—I saw you!

While Jehovah killed the first lambFaith

To cover the sins of the first man

I stood in the midst of the garden

Saw the blood of the lamb dripping on the altar

And I saw YOU

But Lord, how could you see me?

Oh, don’t you know, I Am El Roi the God who sees? The Ancient of Days?

Don’t you remember when we cradled a child and sang My songs to him?

Don’t you remember when we made a feast for the ones you love?

Don’t you remember when in the darkness you cried out to Me and bowed the knee in repentance for your sins?

I was there. And I loved you! I approved of you!

I wait not for you to accomplish a great feat

And I wait not for the applause from men before taking note of you

For I have created you…love you… approve of you

Even from the garden

Where no man can see, where no man can go

And today I see you—love you,

For you are Mine!

I saw you…even from the garden!

      My dear Heather,

      So amazed I was as the Lord painted this picture of His longing for us…even while the first lamb was slain! Thank you for sharing your heart! I love you!
