“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.”

God created the chaos and then he created an awesome paradise out of it. In this creative process, God presents himself like a bird (probably an eagle) hovering over waters. The Spirit of God moves his wings to stir up chaos and form a nest. His purpose is to create a place to dwell with humankind. In the same way, God produces and transforms our surrounding chaos into a place for living with him. So our duty is to let God transform the surrounding chaos into a nurturing dwelling place where we can experience his creative presence.

Wonderful Creator, your presence makes the difference in the chaotic life. Thanks for making a wonderful nest out of chaos so we can dwell together. AMEN.
