Faith Conversation: God's Creative Work

"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters" (Genesis 1:1-2).

  • Of all the things God has created, which amazes you most?
  • What amazed you about me at the beginning of our relationship?
  • How has God helped us grow together since then?

Sometimes in the midst of the ordinary joys and worries of each day, we forget just how extraordinary God's creation truly is — and that our spouse is a part of that creation. God's Spirit is still "hovering" among us today — transforming, filling and renewing us as we journey through life together. It's good, then, to give thanks for God's awesome and ongoing creative work in each of us and in our marriage relationship.
