"The earth was empty and had no form. Darkness covered the ocean, and God's spirit was moving over the water."
This passage shows how our world and the lives we have are the result of God's imagination and his creativity. It shows how stark and bleak everything was before he started to work. It makes me glad that he did create everything and shape it and make it just as beautiful as it is.
To be honest the world beforehand sounds to me just plain eerie, I don't much like the sound of it at all.
