Story of Creation

Folder: 
God (Inspired by)

Day One:



The universe was a black hole,

an abyss of nothingness.



But God spoke life into existence:

He breathed light into the dark.



Day Two:



God separated the heavens and oceans

and colored both the sky and waters

varying shades of blue.



Day Three:



God created the earth amid the seas

and covered the dirt with greenery

and fruits and vegetables

to add some vitality to the mud.



Day Four:



Sun, moon, and stars were

added to the canopy of the sky

to develop the concept of time.



They would identify the seasons,

the days, years, and so on.



Day Five:



Something was missing-

someone to enjoy God’s creation

so He added animals-

fish for the vast waters,

and birds for the firmament.



The land was missing the life

that lived in the seas and sky.

So from the earth, mammals,

reptiles, and insects were made.



Day Six:



But God was feeling lonely.

All He had designed was beautiful

but God needed someone to talk to

and someone to care for His creation.



So from His own image,

reflecting His very own nature

but from the dirt of the earth,

he created man and woman.



Day Seven:



God was tired from

His busy workweek;

He rested on the clouds

and got to know His children.

Day One:

The universe was a black hole,
an abyss of nothingness.

But God spoke life into existence:
He breathed light into the dark.

Day Two:

God separated the heavens and
the oceans and colored both
varying shades of blue.

Day Three:

God created the earth amid the seas
and covered the dirt with greenery
and vegetation to add
some vitality to the mud.

Day Four:

Sun, moon, and stars were
added to the canopy of the sky
to develop the concept of time.
They would identify the days,
the months, the seasons, and so on.

Day Five:

Something was missing-
someone to enjoy God’s creation
so He added animals-
fish for the vast waters,
and birds for the firmament.

The land was missing the life
that lived in the seas and sky.
So from the ground, mammals,
reptiles, and insects were made.

Day Six:

But God was feeling lonely.

All He had designed was beautiful,
but God needed someone to talk to
and someone to care for His creation.

So from His own image-
reflecting His very own nature-
from the dirt of the earth,
he created man and woman.

Day Seven:

God was tired from
His busy workweek;
He rested on the clouds
and got to know His children.

Ab excellent summary! Although I disagree with one of its statements---that God was lonely---I think the verbal compression you have used to describe so much in so few words is truly a magnificent testimony not only the Scriptures, but also to your own great talent.
