In my beginning GOD created a new existence. My spirit was without form and void, and darkness permeated the very essence of my being. The Spirit of God searched the chambers of my heart seeking and entrance.
Then God said to my broken and wounded spirit, “Let there be light”, and thus new life was conceived. God saw that it was good, and was very well pleased.
God separated the darkness from the light in my spirit, so that as I walk in the light, thus entering into His wonderful fellowship, it would dispel all the darkness day by day from this new life that He made. This was the first day of my new beginning.
Then God said, “Let there be times of rain, and times of drought. Rain, to water the spirit of this new life, and for times of refreshing. And drought, so this new life doesn’t learn to always depend on the “feeling” of my presence, but learn to walk and mature to a higher level of living for Me. This time of drought will be set for a time of proving, in hopes that this new life will be propelled to walk by faith, and not by the five senses he possesses in his fallen flesh.” This was the second day of my new beginning.
Then God said, “Let this new life yield seed after its kind. Let others come after him of like faith. These are those which he has helped to birth into this earth by leading them to Me. Let those that come after him birth into this earth by leading them to Me. Let those that come after him birth into this earth other new lives after themselves, that they may come to know and love me as this new life has.” And all this was accomplished on the third day of my new beginning.
Then God said, “Let there be signs that follow this new life as a demonstration of the fact that I have come into the world. And My Son will oversee and direct his every step. My Son will be the actual agent for which this new life operates. As the moon reflects the natural sun, so this new life will reflect the light of My Son, who has the power to dispel the darkness from the others of My creation as well.”
God saw that it was good. This was the fourth day of my new beginning.
Then God said, “Let the excellent spirit of this new life, and those that come after him saturate the earth with My love, as My vessel – Just like the fish of the sea, and the birds of the air show forth My love and handiwork. Let My purpose by his purpose, and My will be his will.”
God then blessed His new life, and those that came after him and said, “Be fruitful and multiply. Restore My love back in the earth. Turn the hearts of the people heavenward once again. Let the banner of My purpose be forever etched in the sea of humanity leading men and women to seek after Me with their whole hearts.” This was the fifth day of my new beginning.
Then God said, “Let us restore mankind back to their original state with Me. Let us bring them to where their true home has been all the time. Let us restore back to them total dominion over all My creation. Let us allow them to dwell in our presence forever, restoring to them the everlasting life they once forfeited. Let us give them a body that will never be sick and never die, never again having to be redeemed from corruption. They, and all that have come after them shall be eternally blessed for their faithful labors. They shall eat of the tree of life for all eternity, never again having to face the choice of eating of the forbidden tree.” God saw that this new life He created was VERY good. This is the sixth day of my new beginning.
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth: and the first earth and the first heaven were passed away and there was no more sea. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He shall dwell with them, and that shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God.” And the One who sits on the throne says, “Behold, I make all things new. “He then carried me away in the spirit to a great high mountain, and showed me that great city, and I dwelt there forever in the presence of the One who gave me this new life.
On the seventh day of my new beginning, God AND men who had this new life RESTED FROM ALL THEIR LABORS in the glorious kingdom of the Father promised since before the foundation of the world.
Jesus said to Nicodemus, “Ye must be born again."

A very different "take" on the creation. Very good. This makes it personal. God did create each of us in His likeness and told us to be fruitful and multiply. He means that in the spiritual sense as well as in the physical.... Keep writing. Don't give up. Thanks for sharing....Helen
