Chaos · Creation · Joy · Order

creation joy…

The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the water. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness.

Genesis 1:2-4 ESV

I experienced a little creation joy…

A moment… of the Word made flesh… and the joy derived…

We bought a new car recently… which I like… a lot… but I missed some conveniences from the old…

No storage hold in the back… or a place for a trash bag…

A little chaos… a little darkness… over the new car…

When God created… He spoke order into the chaos…

And when He reprimanded Job… He revealed a bit of what happened in the heavens… as He brought order into the earth…

“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Tell me if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it? On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone — while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?

Job 38:4-7 NIV

Creation joy abounded in heaven… as disorder became order… everything set in its place…

While shopping today… I thought to look for something to create order… in the potential… for much disorder… in my new vehicle…

And lo and behold… if I didn’t find some orderly treasures…

A place for trash… and…

Yes… it may seem silly to you… but let me tell you… I was joy-full… making the way for order… where chaos could potentially reign…

And the bonus in it all…?

Experiencing a glimpse of… creation joy…
