Genesis: 1:2



“Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.”

The image of God here is conveyed as simplistic, and almost childlike. It is intended to express our childish and simplistic understanding of the creation story. It is difficult for us to fathom God’s presence existing before matter, space and time were ever constructed. Through the hand of God, beauty and life were able to spring forth from the watery chaos. May it be so in our lives that, through a childlike faith and understanding, we are able to let His presence pass over us and bring forth new life, and a new spirit within each of us.
