Minute Meditations

Open and Vulnerable

Each of us longs for harmony. We feel it deep within us, the instinct to live free of shame, naked and vulnerable before our God and the world. We long to know ourselves fully and not be afraid of who and what we are. It is the map back to Eden imprinted on our souls and desired by our flesh. We long to know what it meant to be woman when we were Eve—to have that relationship with God, with man, with ourselves. Eden’s blessing calls us, and we spend our lives, if we are pursuing God earnestly, trying to unravel what it means to be Eve, to live naked and unashamed before him.

— from the book When We Were Eve: Uncovering the Woman God Created You to Be by Colleen C. Mitchell
