In the different theories of creationism is that of creatio ex nihilo which is “creation out of nothing”. It begs the question, could God take nothing and make something? Can something rise from nothing? In the beginning God created…. and it was good. Then he handed it over to us, his creation, and it got bad in short order. Maybe the theory of creatio ex nihilo is absolutely correct. Whether or not this theory is correct frankly doesn’t concern me too much. Whatever he did, he did. However he did it is great. I believe that God created it all. I have a strong faith that can accept, without doubt, that God created it all. But this blog post REALLY isn’t about that at all. My question and concern is much more current.
God makes something out of nothing. –We take that something and turn it into nothing. –Can God take my nothing and again make it something… something of real value?
We take what’s good and by our own self will and egotism run from the creator of good and turn the good thing bad. The good opportunity, the good friends, the good gifts…. If we aren’t careful we can take them all and reduce them to nothing.
ex nihilo – out of nothing
I believe that God can take a universe void of a single particle of dust and create all we see and have yet to discover. The real question is this: do i deeply believe that he can take a broken relationship, gift or life and out of nothing create something again? I’m staking my life on the fact that he can. For the next few days I want to share stories of how we can make something out of nothing with God’s help. We are created in the image of God and that includes his creative nature. That part of him that CREATES. We posses that same quality. We feel it in us when it all falls down. It’s that stirring, that discontent, that hunger to be whole and right and good. ex nihilo… out of nothing, i believe can come something…. something beautiful.
