For a woman to enjoy relationship...

"For a woman to enjoy relationship, she must repent of her need to control and her insistence that people fill her. Fallen Eve demands that people 'come through' for her. Redeemed Eve is being met in the depths of her soul by Christ and is free to offer to others, free to desire, and willing to be disappointed. Fallen Eve has been wounded by others and withdraws in order to protect herself from further harm. Redeemed Eve knows that she has something of value to offer; that she is made for relationship. Therefore, being safe and secure in her relationship with her Lord, she can risk being vulnerable with others and offer her true self." -- Excerpt from the book, "Captivating".


Now put your name in the place of Eve. This cuts right to the heart of us women. Let's walk in the redemption and grace of Christ in us.
