Amble With Grace


Genesis 3:8
New International Version (NIV)

8 Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden.

In the Cool of the Day

The breeze was cool
And we could hear His footsteps near
In days before we heard them
And they brought to us no fear

He would come to us each day
And we’d amble down to the field
But today we choose to feed upon
The one and only forbidden meal

It seemed so good and looked so fair
While the serpent hissed with tempting guile
So we made our beds in sins’ desire
“Surely Not,” he said with a deadly smile

Then the sound of footsteps came
And we hide without a word
“Where are you?” came His gentle call
We answered but were barely heard

“We are naked, Sir, so we are covered
Clothes of leaves to hide our shame
Who has told you, you are naked!”
We both stood there and passed the blame

“Woe to you evil serpent!
On Your belly you shall crawl!
And woe to you rebellious mankind
You shall suffer an arduous fall!”

“Woman! You shall be ruled by man
And hard childbirth will be a part of life
And man who shunned his duty and his oath
Will work and sweat for naught but strife!”

And now I cast you out and bar the gate
Serpent, down below you must go
Until I send a Son for you
And He will smite you with a deadly blow

From one sin man would meet his end
Through One man salvation came
First man had all the sin
The Second took all the shame

One way and only one we have sinned
With evil we have schemed
One way and only one we are saved
By the Son we are redeemed

So very long ago we fell. We lusted after things of no value. We did not cherish our walks with You in the cool of the evening. We set in motion events that would hold dire consequences. Your Son would have to pay a heavy price to ransom us from sin’s grip. Forgive us and draw us close. If possible, please let us amble through the Garden with You, yet again.

Thank You, Lord for every loving kindness. Amen!
