Genesis 1:1-2 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
I know, I come back to this beginning a lot. I believe there is so much information here that pertains to our lives and how we develop. Think of that situation of life in the womb, there is this sperm cell swimming around looking for a place to land, hovering over the face of the deep. Life is formless and void hovering, and it is darkness. That is where we start, in darkness with the Spirit of the Creator hovering over us. Then we spend nine months, roughly 275 days totally dependent on something we cannot see or begin to understand. Our total responsibility comes down to being, just being, we do not even have to think of trusting or depending or even worrying.
Now, some years later, having been pushed out of the cradle, we find ourselves in a new environment, one so very different. In a perfect world, we still must depend on Mother and Father. Then roughly twelve years down the road, we become responsible citizens of this new world and must begin to trust and depend, from what we have been taught and learned. I prefer to continually depend on my Mother Father Creator. I say Mother Father because of the Word in Genesis 1:26; “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness.” I am beginning to think that we really are in another womb situation the end of which comes when we breathe our last and we get pushed out into our eternal home. Which home we go to depends on whose flag or banner we have chosen to follow in this second womb environment.
