My Adam is asleep, while God prepares me.

Darling, did you know that I dream about you

Waiting on the look in your eyes

When we meet for the first time

Darling, did you know I pray about you

Praying that you will hold on

Keep your loving eyes only on me

I am waiting for you

Praying for you, darling

Wait for me too

Wait for me as I wait for you

I am waiting for you

Praying for you, darling

Wait for me too

Wait for me too

Wait for me as I wait for you

Darling, wait

Darling, did you know I dream about life together

Knowing it will be forever

I’ll be yours and you’ll be mine

And darling, when I say

“Till death do us part”

It is my heart that speaks

God is preparing you for your Adam. Scripture tells us that Adam was asleep while God made Eve. Have you ever considered that your Adam is asleep while God is preparing you to present to Him? God doesn’t want your Adam to receive someone who isn’t prepared. God isn’t going to wake up your Adam until you are totally prepared. You have to be equipped to be able to share his life. Eve had to be able to stand with Adam through his triumphs and his trials.

And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. John 12:23-25

“God caused sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept.” There are many needs for sleep. God has all of us sleep for a reason. One of the reasons is for Him to do work in us. God can give us insight, vision and directions while we are awake, but sometimes, for Him to do something special in us – He needs us to be asleep. It is during this time when He has your full attention and He is in complete control. So there is a lesson to be learned for those who are looking for a husband …

The best thing you can do is let this area of your life sleep, and trust in God. The Lord will bring that person into your life His way. He doesn’t need your assistance. If you trust God with your salvation, then why can’t you trust  Him to bring you your soul mate?

While Adam was asleep, God performed surgery on Adam, He opened him up and took a rib out of his side to make woman. Notice where the woman came from, in taking her from the side of man, God is painting a picture regarding marriage and relationships. “Eve was not made out of head to rule over him, nor out of his feet to be trampled over. But out of his side to be his equal, and from under his arm to be protected and near and dear to him.” Surgery in the world usually involves pain, and yet God put Adam into a deep sleep, and when he awoke – there was no pain but there was something missing. Adam now experienced a loss, he was no longer exactly what he had been. Though when you looked at him he appeared unchanged, Adam had given up a part of himself for Eve to become flesh. And now he would long for her, to be complete once again.

God had Adam asleep while he completed His work on Eve. Can you imagine what Eve first saw and how she responded when she open her eyes? She would have seen God in one of His many forms. And since Adam was still asleep, it was just the two of them. I wonder if He reacted the way most men do at the birth of His daughter – Daddy’s Little Girl! What words of wisdom did He have for her? I wonder what her reaction was? When I think of God and Eve’s first meeting, I think of this poem …

“I chose the rib, which protects his heart and lungs and supports him, as you are meant to do.

Around this one bone I shaped you, I modeled you, I created you perfectly and beautifully.

Your characteristics are as the rib: strong, yet delicate and fragile.

You provide protection for the most delicate organ in man, his heart.

His heart is the center of his being; his lungs hold the breath of life.

The ribcage will allow itself to be broken before it will allow damage to the heart.

Support man as the ribcage supports the body.

You were not taken from his feet, to be under him,

Nor were you taken for his head, to be above him.

You were taken from his side, to stand by him and to be held close to his side.

You are My perfect creation, you are My beautiful little girl.

You have grown to be a splendid woman of excellence,

And My eyes fill when I see the virtues in your heart.

Your eyes … don’t change them.

Your lips, how lovely when they part in prayer.

Your nose, so perfect in form.

Your hands, so gentle to touch.

I have caressed your face in your deepest sleep.

I have held your heart close to mine.

Of all that lives and breaths, you are most like Me.

Adam walked with Me in the cool of the day, yet he was lonely.

He could not see Me or touch Me. He could only feel Me.

So everything I wanted Adam to share and experience with Me,

I fashioned in you; My holiness, My strength, My purity, My love, My protection, and support.

You are special because you are an extension of Me.

Man represent My image, woman My emotions.

Together, you represent the totality of God.

So man, treat woman well.

Love her, respect her, for she is fragile.

In hurting her, you hurt Me.

What you do to her, you do to Me.

In crushing her, you only damage your own heart; the heart of your Father and the heart of her Father.

Woman, support man.

In humility, show him the power of emotion I have given you.

In gentle quietness, show your strength.

In love, show him that you are the rib that protects his inner self.

“Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.” Genesis 2:22

When Eve is presented to Adam, I can see God as the proud father of the bride – presenting His daughter to her groom. I wonder if there were tears of joy in His eyes, or if she had tears in hers when He presented her groom to her. He knew she would be taken care of, there weren’t any doubts because He was also the father of the groom. Adam’s role is to draw her near to him, to drive away her fears. He is too let her know he will love and protect her. God instructs man to love his wife like Christ loves the church, and gave of Himself. A husband is to love his wife as his own body.

You are flesh of my flesh

Bone of my bone

There’s no one closer

You are flesh of my flesh

Bone of my bone

We are one

I do pledge my life to you

Forever and always

I will take good care of you

And shower you with praise

We hear Adam say “ This is bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh, and she shall be called woman because she was taken from me.” Adam believed that this was him, but a different him. This tells us that man and woman are one. Adam and Eve share the same DNA. This is husband and wife. They should not separate. Even so, sometimes they do separate because of sin and disobedience. When Adam saw the woman, he literally knew that she was made from his bone and flesh. So when we read, “Bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh” – God is telling us how powerful and amazing and holy marriage is. Adam recognized Eve was a part of him, that they were in fact – one flesh. The Bible tells us that marriage is more than a union. It’s a union of two souls. When Adam and Eve were united it was a union of two people  but the singular Spirit of God – now uniting as one. They were created apart, they were different and yet similar. And now in marriage, they have become one – the perfect reflection of God’s image and emotions, His Word and Spirit – together as One.

The rains came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall. Because it had its foundation built on the rock. Mathew 7:24-27

Although it was Adam’s mouth that declared the first wedding vows to Eve, the words came from God, “Therefore shall a man shall leave his father and his mother and cleave too his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” That is the very essence of marriage – leaving our former lives and sources of dependence -and now cleaving to each other, becoming one. The sad truth, is that most couples have heard these words but don’t really know what they mean. The first step in the journey of marriage is for a man to ‘leave’ his father and his mother. If you are getting married you have to be willing to sever the ties that bind. Adam learned that the first priority was that the husband and wife relationship must be a couple, set apart – two functioning as one.

You can’t have interfering parents. Marriage must be free from meddling trying to get between that which is now one! The word ‘leave’ means to abandon, to forsake. God instructs couples to cleave to one another because they are being weaved together. The word ‘cleave’ means to adhere firmly, to be strongly attached. If a husband and wife want to have a good marriage they will put boundaries around themselves and they will not allow anyone or anything to separate them. Gods’ purpose and plan for husbands and wives is to put their marriage first. So when God speaks of the two being one, just as our bodies are one whole entity and cannot be divided into pieces – neither can a marriage. God intends and desires an ordained marriage to remain as one. And just as a body will die if it is divided into pieces, so will the marriage relationship if we allow others – friends, family or foes – to divide that which is one. For there are literally no longer two entities (two individuals), but now – there is only one entity (the married couple). And therefore, just as death is the only thing that can separate us (spirit and soul) from our body which is one, a God ordained couple should remain as one until death parts them.

“I have found the one my soul loves” Songs of Solomon 3:4

A marriage is a covenant, an agreement not just between two people – but one created by God, involving God, and that must be ordained / approved by God. God does not violate our free will, and He knows our hearts and minds. And therefore He knows if that man and that woman truly love one another, if they are really their heart’s desire. If they have been truthful to each other about their desires and needs and dreams and fears – the good and the bad. And if they truly intend, have purposed in their heart and mind, to live with each other through the good and the bad, no matter what. There will be difficulties, but the agape love of God that binds a husband and wife together, will be able to stand against all the storms of life. For God’s ordained marriage begins with the two being naked and not ashamed. The significance is not just that Adam and Eve were unclothed and joined together as one, but that they were transparent and completely open and vulnerable to one another, in friendship and love. For a spouse is to be our best friend, our partner in all aspects of life, someone with whom we can share all of ourselves with.

You were my strength when I was weak

You were my voice when I couldn’t speak

You were my eyes when I couldn’t see

You saw the best there was in me

Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach

You gave me faith cause you believed

In everything I am

Because you loved me

Marriage is an earthly union similar to that of the Trinity, not just two who are now one, but a man and a woman and God. You can’t leave God at the altar and expect to have a blessed marriage, for then there is no covenant of marriage in the first place. You can get piece of paper from the court house that says you’re married – but that doesn’t mean God says you are. He knows your heart and your mind, and this is His covenant, not the world’s! A God ordained marriage will create a love between you and your soul mate the likes of which the world rarely sees. Beyond just living together – the love and trust and respect for one another will astound others, and it will draw them to God – them desiring to have the same. That’s the supernatural power that an omnipotent God pours out on a union He alone approves – the ordained and anointed marriage covenant of the Most High.

As the threads of your life are weaved together, and you wait on your beloved, remember that Adam too will awake. How will know that you’ve found the one? How do you know that he has found the one? When you hear His Words, it’s all there. Is God first in your lives? Do you feel like one when together? Are you compelled to leave family to be with him? Does he feel the same? If the answer is yes, truly yes – and I know without hesitation, with no reservation – then I know, that my Adam is awake.

  1. Thanks….I like it! 🙂

  2. very lovely thoughts…I had not considered this concept before…well done!

  3. I love it alot but what really compelled you to writing this version?

    • Hi Silas:
      When” My Adam is asleep while God is preparing me” was written it was the only one on the web at that time. My compositions are inspired by intimate conversation with God, and listening to friends complain about not having met their Boaz, when they themselves aren’t yet Ruth. It is my feeling that God wants to write each of our love stories, but we have to be willing to surrender the pen and paper to him. I believe the two are one spiritually and mentally on one accord. When you understand Genesis, it never says God told Adam this is your bride. He knew automatically she was his wife. It reads “she is bone of my bone, flesh of my flesh.” God caused Adam to sleep for a reason so he could prepare Eve. There are so many Eve’s searching for their Adam. Who are not prepared to be wives, but rather caught up on a fantasy created by the world The truth is you don’t have to search you just have to be patient and leave God to prepare you as he is preparing him. He desires to be a part of every aspect of our lives, including our love lives. He’s simply waiting for us to stop looking and searching and just say God, I want you to be God in every area of my life. And when you have finished your work in me send me the mate you have for me. Before the founding of the earth you were from your entire life was written from being to ending it is up to us to allow the creator to complete the ending. I hope I have answered your question.
      Val

  4. Glory! Thanks so much…I wish I could read this everyday😊I don’t know you but I love you already
    Stay glorified in the presence of our FATHER
