You know they say it’s not our successes that define us; instead it’s our response to our struggles.
If that’s the case then let’s just say… I’ve truly been redefined!
Life has a funny way of burying us in issues. There was a period in my life that I was overwhelmed with grief, guilt, financial disparity and heartbreak.
I could not see the light at the end of the tunnel. I no longer knew who I was and didn’t like the woman I had become.
Something had to change!
I desperately sought to find solutions to relieve my pain. I tried everything from dieting, exercising, taking salsa lessons, to crying on my friend’s shoulder. Needless to say, none of those helped. I needed more, so much more.
I wanted to find out what God’s original plan for me was so I went back to where it all began. I decided to start reading in Genesis with the creation of man.
While studying I became intrigued by Eve, the Mother of Creation and I recognized that this story is not a fable but rather a story to we can all relate. I began to realize that Eve wasn’t a weak person without purpose. Eve was strong and powerful, like me and you.
One bad decision changed the fate of mankind forever.
Eve found herself in an unfavorable situation. Tempted and alone she made a terrible mistake. Eve had succumbed to the trick of the enemy, or shall we say her “frienemy”. She went against the will of God and ate from the tree of life.
Eve soon found herself in a shameful situation. The realization that she was naked and vulnerable caused her to cover herself and hide from God.
Doesn’t that sound all too familiar? When we make mistakes or have mishaps in life we tend to hide and often times cover up our pain and mistakes.
I don’t know about you but I was the master of masking and denial.
Little did I know that hiding and covering up causes us to not live in our truth.
That’s why Uncovering Eve was created. Created to help you and others like you unveil the strength, identity, power and purpose that has been covered with pain, guilt and shame.
It is my prayer, that through our interactions you will gain the strength to walk boldly in your own life and to become naked and unashamed, just as you were created to be.
