There are often times I take His greatness for granted.
What. a. God. we. serve.
"Earth was a soup of nothingness, a bottomless emptiness, an inky blackness."
From this - "God created the Heavens and Earth—all you see, all you don’t see."
I marvel of Him.
All of this from "a soup of nothingness, a bottomless emptiness, an inky blackness."
It is the first day of 2016.
I glimpse back on the past years He has brought me through. How my life was an inky blackness, a soup of nothingness, a bottomless emptiness. How He has filled it, used it for His glory.
I was thinking about what I wanted to get done today. I smile thinking of working in the kitchen with Nichalas and Amber yesterday, knowing today we will continue baking the bite sized deliciousness for Adam and Ashley's party tomorrow night. Quick trips to the store. Hopefully making it to the New Year's Day party Ashley's aunt is holding. Working on getting everything ready for transport.
Before I know it, tonight will come. Another day will have went and gone.
I look back at how much has passed in my 56 years and stand amazed how quickly it went. I stand amazed when He was creating the world He knew I would be here. This very moment, using a computer to share about Him and His Word
Doesn't that blow you away?
To think that in His whole creation, a little speck in the whole picture of things, He knew.
And He did it all for me. For us.
Humans. His creation. Reflection of Him.
"God created human beings;
he created them godlike,
Reflecting God’s nature.
He created them male and female.
God blessed them:
“Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Earth! Take charge!
Be responsible for fish in the sea and birds in the air,
for every living thing that moves on the face of Earth.” (1:27-28)
Separating day from night. Evil from Good. Eternal Death from Eternal Life.
"God spoke: “Lights! Come out!
Shine in Heaven’s sky!
Separate Day from Night.
Mark seasons and days and years,
Lights in Heaven’s sky to give light to Earth.”
And there it was." (1:14-15)
He knows my numbered seasons, days and years. He has given me Light to mark them.
My Light is His Son. My Savior.
My Light is The Holy Spirit. My Helper.
My Light is His Word. My Guide.
My Light is My Daddy. My ABBA. - the Creator of all.
And My Daddy holds me in the palm of His hand.
New beginnings from nothingness..............only He can do that.
