"SomeTHING out of NoTHING"

I woke up in the middle of the night last night with a lot on my mind. I was talking to the Lord and trying not to cross over into the land of "worry" when the Holy Spirit reminded me of this,

God knows how to make "something" out of "nothing".

With that thought, I went back to sleep with the comfort of the Lord and the anticipation of what He can and will do!

This morning I got up and read Genesis, Chapter 1. How I needed that reminder of our Creator. I started thinking about all the "THINGS" I tend to focus on.

My money.

My home.

My work.

My talents and gifts.

My husband.

My children.....etc. etc.

MY, MY, MY.........and it was as the Lord kept reminding me that,

"In the beginning GOD CREATED."

Who am I to think anyTHING is mine or by my own doing.

Even the ability to be creative was created by HIM.

I don't know about you, but focusing on Him as Creator, brings me a lot of comfort and relieves a lot of stress.

May you delight in knowing that everyTHING is His, under His control and He is the CREATOR of all THINGS.

"For by him all THINGS were created; THINGS in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all THINGS were created by him and for him.
Colossians 1:16

May EveryTHING that has breath praise the Creator!
