In Genesis 2:7, God formed Adam out of the dust of the earth. He blew into his nostrils,
and he became a living person. But, a few verses later in Genesis 2:21-23, God was a little bit more creative when He made the woman. He put Adam into a deep sleep, took one of his ribs and created His greatest work of art, in my opinion, the woman. Have you ever wondered why He didn’t just grab more dust and create the woman as He did the man? I believe He took His time sculpting the body that would be the carrier and deliverer of life. Our bodies are a work of art, custom made.
A woman’s body can carry one or more babies at one time while nurturing and stretching to make room for them! It manages to carry human life for nine whole months, just the right amount of time for a baby to be healthy enough to survive outside of the mother’s body. The woman’s body is so complex, yet miraculous. Its functions can only be the work of God.
Looking at my body the way God sees it changed my entire perspective.
We need to value ourselves more. We need to value our bodies. We need to value the
most precious thing in our bodies, our birth canal. It is both an entry and an exit. Two bodies are made into one flesh via entry into the birth canal, and life is brought into the world through the birth canal.
When you see it for how precious it truly is, you may never allow a man who is not
your husband to see or enter into that precious place again.
