Genesis 1:1-2 In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God swept over the face of the waters. * * * * * * * * I can't count the number of times in my life when I have felt like the earth before God created fun stuff for the scientists to make sense of. Formless and void. Sounds like most of my Monday mornings. The end of the week too. At first glance, I don't see much of God's creative handiwork. But God does seem to touch my days much like the wind that kisses the flat, glassy surface of the waters. The earth shivers with goose pimples at the creator's touch and so do I. Startled but not afraid. * * * * * * * * Holy God, take this formless pile of human goo and shape my life into something that is good. Amen.
