"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light." Genesis, chapter 1, verses 1 through 3.

God is God, the Creator of the entire universe and every infinitely small particle found in anything and everything, and decides where each bit and part is to be throughout time. He is the great "I AM," Who created all of us as well. We were made for His good pleasure, in His likeness, for His glory. He is omnipotent, all-knowing, all capable, everlasting, the single originator of love and all good things. There is no one, no force, no power, nothing whatsoever that He does not stand above. Only God is God.

Perhaps most importantly to know at this moment is this: God is not optional, for us to choose to believe in or not. It is His will that is done on earth and in heaven - not ours.

Yes, even though we are born with a gift from God that most people never recognize as coming from God - the gift of free will, to make our own choices about things - all the choices we make ultimately take us back to Him.
