Genesis 1:5: The First
Written by Shonda Ponder
All Bible verses taken from the KJV of the Open Bible
Genesis 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
There is always a first; the first day of your life, the first time you took a step, the first time you spoke, the first day of school, etc. Each first helps you gain confidence in your abilities. Each first helps you in your decision making for the future. Each first is a new beginning for a certain part of your life. Take comfort in knowing that before the first of anything in your life happened, God was there; and, when the last thing happens in your life, God will be there.
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Revelation 22:13
The first days are always the hardest. These are the days of the creation of the rest of your life. These days will shape you and mold you into the man or woman God created you to be. The first days can be as painful and scary as taking your first step as a toddler once was. Isn't it ironic that, as a toddler, your fear was replaced by sheer determination? Why do you suffer fear the way you do today, when your past firsts have already proven that determination can overcome your weaknesses?
Today is the first day of the rest of your life. It is up to you to live it!
