In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1 ESV)

When God created the world, he set a precedent that man has followed ever since. While man may try to match the glory of God’s creation, man can never create something from nothing. Nevertheless, man keeps on creating. Paintings, sculptures, stories, dances, poetry, movies, and TV shows. These are just a few types of creations in the field of art, to say nothing of the creating and discovery that occurs in science and other more technical fields.

And so, how can I help but imitate both God and man? I step in and create. I take my thoughts, put them in the beauty of the written word, then post those words online in a blogging system built with computer code and mathematical algorithms so complex that I could never hope to understand its every nuance.

The ability to write something and share it with you is a breathtaking gift from God himself, and I hope you are encouraged in some way.
