Main Idea: To end the chaos and find normal, we should follow the steps God did when designing normal in Genesis 1.

Main Message: Ending the Chaos...
In the beginning: the world was formless, dark, empty.
To address darkness, God brought LIGHT. Proverbs 8:22 - 23, 27 - 29.
To address formless, God created structures and boundaries. Genesis 1:6-10.
To address empty, God filled the earth. Genesis 1:14 - 15, 20:21.
BUT, each have limits according to their kind, lest freedom lead to chaos.
Creating man: Genesis 1:26-28.
Created in God's image to subdue the earth.
