Five Minute Friday: Nothing

We write for five minutes flat. All on the same prompt that Lisa Jo posts here.
No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation.
Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Nothing.
That's what He created everything out of.
Nothing.

The word seems to almost create a void when I say it.
An unfilled sheet of paper.
A vast expanse of meadow.
An empty wall.
Blank.

No items to work with, no tools to create with -
just -
nothing.

I too have nothing.
nothing apart from Him
nothing to offer that is worthy of a Savior
nothing to give that should matter to a King

Everything I think is something -
a spouse
a job
a home
children
talents
a family
gifts
money
technology

all of it is
NOTHING.

they are all things - and things can fill our lives -
but not one of those things amounts to anything in light of Who He is

I am nothing.

Gratefully, He creates wonderful & marvelous things from just that
from nothing.

Glory to Him.
