Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Void and Without Shape

The earth was nothing;
void and without shape.
Darkness was on the face of the deep.
One Word.
God spoke it all into existence
and it was so.

And God made man
from the dust of the earth,
then, with one breath,
the breath of life,
man became a living being.

That one sweet breath,
emanating from the Almighty God,
remains within us all.
The very air we breathe,
essential to our existence.

Way back then,
in those early, early days,
God knew you,
knew everything about you...
and loved you still.

* Paraphrasing Chapters 1 & 2
of the book of Genesis
