Genesis 1 New Living Translation (NLT)
The Account of Creation
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.
3 Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 And God saw that the light was good. Then he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day” and the darkness “night.” And evening passed and morning came, marking the first day.
IN THE BEGINNING ~
God created the heavens and the earth.
The Bible is full of directions. I love how God separated the light from the darkness. It was good that he made us light to see things. So from the beginning of time, we can see how God has taken care of things. Along the way, someone decided to give direction by the North, South, East and West. It became helpful to know which way you were going.
Which way are you going spiritually today? Do you read the word (Bible) and do your best daily to live by it? Is the Bible just a book and you don't believe? Each of us are so different and yet the same. We need directions in life. Somethings can become to hard and we just feel so alone. I've known people who seem to have the best life ever and they fight depression, feeling alone and no direction on what is next. Each of us have thoughts and our actions are so very important in life.
Proverbs 3:5-8 New International Version (NIV)
Trusting in the Lord
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
7 Do not be wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord and shun evil.
8 This will bring health to your body
and nourishment to your bones.
Do not lean or depend on your own understanding.
As the new day begins, open the word (Bible) and begin reading in Genesis. God created from the beginning and continues creating in our lives daily. As we trust in God and lean not to our own understanding, we find God guiding our footsteps.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. Remind yourself that God is a God of hope and wants the best for you. Inputting postive thoughts and actions are important daily.
