Before I started studying Eve and other women of the Bible, one of the things that I was really interested in uncovering was any feminine representations of God. I think that this was because the fact that God is typically spoken about in masculine terms meant that:
- I didn't quite understand how I could be totally "made in His image"
- I didn't always see myself reflected or represented in God or His word
- This made me question my worth, place and purpose (as a woman) within the Kingdom of God
Wanting to reconcile these issues for myself, and others within the Far Above Rubies Collective, I did a 2-part series on scriptures that talked about God in feminine terms a few months ago- most especially as mother (if you missed that you can read them here and here).
In today's devotional, we're going to be taking lessons from El Shaddai on how women reflect the image of God in their bodies.
