There was nothing but an empty expanse – the deepest darkest place ever.
Water lay upon the surface, but there was no life within it.
The canopy above held thunderous clouds but they too were hidden in the ink filled sky.
There was an unspeakable tenebrosity – nothingness – empty – lost,
The Lord spoke, “Let there be light!” and there was light.
A light that exploded across the horizon and filled the air with warmth –
With nourishment for life yet to come –
With release from the grip of eternal blackness,
With respite for the coming creation of those who would fill the earth,
Out of that obscurity came light, a light that would never be extinguished,
He knew even then that mankind would choose disobedience,
And still He provided a way – a guide – a light to open a path on earth,
A brilliant luminosity that would also lead to the gates of heaven,
He is the light of the world!
