"Then God said, “Let there be light!” So there was light."Continuing on, in case you are unaware, we are reading the "About the Author" section of God's Epic.
Let's put it together so far:
In the beginning God created heaven and earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep water. The Spirit of God was hovering over the water. Then God said, “Let there be light!” So there was light.We know that God was and has always been. We now know that He is beginning something new with just the first sentence. Do you ever just sit and ask Him about what was before the beginning? What have you got to loose? Do you think it would be a waste of time? Do you think He doesn't exist? Do you think He doesn't talk or converse with each one of us? Why don't you write about it....maybe within the personal lines on your pages you might go back at some point and find out....He was talking with you. Just a thought!
Anyway....This new thing He made ...He created, from nothing and formed it into something was Heaven and Earth. Boom (or Bang as some would say) there it was. How does He do that? The earth that He made was formless...empty, AND darkness covered the deep water. That sounds pretty spooky to me. I do not think I would want to go there. If I was there I would be hiding very deep and under a cover too. But then just like a loving parent...who showed up? That's right...God showed up! He stood over that blanket and was probably saying don't be afraid...I'll flip the light on and show you there is nothing here to be afraid of.
God said "Let there be Light". And There was Light. However, just because He made it available and it is there does not mean that we are going to let our covers down, see that there is nothing there and rest in His protection.
I think I will leave us with this image of God today. Our daddy, big, strong, loving and always there to chase out the boogie man, bad dream or whatever else we need.
Today, ask Him to shed some light on your fears. Trust that His spirit is hovering over your dark areas. Willing us to open our eyes, cast down false imaginations and be free from the darkness that is suppressing our whimsical lives.
Believe..Be Alive and Be Beautiful...BeCause you already Are. He already made you that way (He has let it be there and it is) You simply have to accept it as so.
