Thank you for awakening in my heart the need once again to be a Christian woman in Montreal. You made it as clear as day to me last night. Girls are taught to desire success and independence to make it on their own and a name for themselves (they cannot rely on men, and I'm not saying they should rely on a guy). Their is nothing wrong with wanting knowledge, but when it comes before God, that's a problem.
Eve was tempted in the exact same way. She had it made in the Garden. But choose to be "all-knowing" instead of knowing God. That and Genesis 3:16 has and forever will be the struggle of woman.
I so often get trapped in this world and have to put the brakes on and realize I'm supposed to be in the world and not of it. I shouldn't be conforming, but setting the example Christ would have me to set.
Lord, remind me constantly of this need. Eternal life (the good life) is knowing you and nothing else.
