In the beginning
God created the heavens
                and the earth.
The earth was without form 
and void,
and darkness was upon
             the face of the deep;
and the Spirit of God
was moving over
the face of the waters.

                       Genesis 1. 1-2

(It is the new year,
standing unknown before me,
so much I cannot see,
I cannot know,
I cannot comprehend.
But God is already moving
    over the face of this deep.
God is already at work.
help me to be faithful to You,
whether by streams of water
        or living like that,
bearing Your fruit
no matter where You place me.
   is not a barren place in Your eyes,
only that yet to be explored
and cultivated.)

Happy new year, my friend.
