Momentum – Creation’s History

Dare one write Creation’s history in so few words?  I dared – and it became my story.  What is your story in the light of Creation?

Momentum – Creation’s History

Just a sigh, barely a movement brooding over deep and sluggish water,

Just a whisper, breathed in anticipation,

Gaining momentum until it roared

Let there be light’ – and there was light and it was good.

Just a choice, not even a big one really.

To eat or not? But the choice, when made,

Gained momentum and hurtled out of control, changing the world.

Just a child, scarcely important,

Growing to manhood in the hills around Nazareth,

Gaining momentum until …

He died, hanging on a cross like a common thief.

Just a man, one of many that night, visiting his friends in a crowded room,

Securing momentum,

For He was the one who had died and lived again – the Son of God …

And seasons changed

And centuries passed

And life itself moved on – until …

Just a girl – young and shy

Just an ordinary girl in the 20th century

Who met this living-again man – the Son of God

And her whole world changed – lit up by love in multi-coloured hues,

Growing in momentum, filling up with joy, hope and assurance,

Never to be the same, never to be alone.

For this is the momentum of the history of creation

The history of all who say yes to this risen-again man – the Son of God.

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I do live in the city but make the most of the green spaces that surround me.
