“In the beginning God created heaven and earth.”

In the beginning – not after something else, not when something else had happened but in the beginning. Created – not started, not developed, not thought about, but created. Heaven and earth – not earth, not heaven, not a little thing, but heaven and earth. God did
it all and when He did, it all began! There in the beginning was everything begun that was begun. That was how God created heaven and earth. There in the beginning.

O GOD, THANK YOU FOR THIS MARVELOUS CREATION. THANK YOU FOR THIS WORLD THAT WE KNOW NOW AND THE WORLDS THAT WE WILL KNOW IN THE FUTURE. THANK YOU FOR THE HEAVEN ABOVE THAT WE NOW KNOW AND THE HEAVENS THAT WE WILL KNOW IN THE FUTURE. THANK YOU FOR OUR PLACE IN YOUR CREATION. IN CHRIST JESUS’ NAME I PRAY IN LOVE. AMEN.
