When we read Genesis 1 we find a world that is “formless and empty” (Genesis 1:2 NLT) before God began to work on it. Please be advised that the following is not for perfect people, on the contrary. God is not looking for perfection, He seeks out the formless, the empty, the broken, and the chaotic to make something new and beautiful. Give Him your mess and allow Him to take care of the rest, He will not let you down.
For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. (Isaiah 43:19 NLT)
