Moving through the stages of grief can be tough. When I finally decided to face my abuse, I had to do a lot of grieving for the losses of so much. One of the stages of grief, is anger. It’s an ugly but necessary step.
Two questions I had for God: why are we all being punished for Eve’s bad choice? Why does all of mankind have to be tortured because of Adam and Eve choosing disobedience?
God smacked me right between the eyes with the answer one day. It was humbling.
I’m no better than Eve. No better.
If the weight of the world had been put on my shoulders, I would have failed too. Stings a little.
I have fallen into temptation. I still do. I’m no better and I wouldn’t have done better.
This aha moment changed my thinking and changed my focus. When I realized I can’t focus and stop with the story of Adam and Eve, (which I wrote about yesterday, Questioning God), there was relief. My anger dissipated and I moved forward in healing.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10
