In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Verse 2 says the earth was FORMLESS and EMPTY. Everything before God touches it has no meaning. Even our lives, before Jesus enters our hearts are empty and without meaning, but God forms a new creation within us. He gives us purpose, meaning and even a new name (Revelation 2:17), so when you feel like you have no purpose and like everything in this world has failed you and you see so much evil around you that it’s hard to see ‘meaning’ in things, remember that God formed the earth out of nothing and that he has the power to create something beautiful within you. There is hope found in Genesis 1:1-2, and that hope is still available for you today.
