Order from Chaos

Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. Genesis 1:2

“In the beginning, the Spirit of God was hovering over the chaos. And nothing has changed. God is still hovering over the chaos. The creation story is a microcosm of what God wants to do in your life. He hovers over the chaotic situations ready to create order and beauty. He wants to fill the void.” – Mark Batterson- “In a pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day”

I remembered reading that quote “somewhere” so I had to look it up this week… wow is that ringing true… In my life, in the stories I hear of what is happening in the lives of actionchurch “peeps”, in the upcoming sermons in the “Game of Life” series…it seems to be the common thread. God is “hovering” in the “mists” above our messy, dirty, chaotic lives…just waiting to turn chaos into order and beauty. Because of his love and mercy-God has chosen the ultimate “Dirty Job”…
