Starting to read Genesis. Hey all. I am just starting to read the bible. My pastor at church gave me this journal, and in it gives me a place to write about the veres and such that I am reading, and how I think it pertains to me. I was reading Genesis last night, chapter 1-7. I think I pretty much understood what I was reading, but what I got from it that I should put my trust in God, like Noah did, when God told him to build the ark. Am I totally off here? After I read the chapters, I was kind of drawing a blank, so I prayed to God and asked him to please open my eyes, and help me understand what I am reading more. So I guess my question is, for those of you who have read these chapters, how do you think they pertained to your life. Obviously, God created everything in these chapters, so I know this pertains to me, but how does this pertain to your everyday life? I am going to read more now, and I am really hoping I 'get something out of it'? I am not sure what phrase to use? I guess not get something out of it, but understand it? I'm not sure, but any help or advice or anything is greatly appreciated. Thanks so much! God bless!
