Look at the birds in the air. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, but your heavenly Father feeds them. Matthew 6v26

Consider the earth! Our globes’s weight has been estimated at six sextillion tons (a six with thenty-one zeroes). Yet it is prcisely tilted at twenty-three degrees; any more or any less and our seasons would be lost in a melted polar flood.

If he cares enough about the planet Saturn to give it rings or Venus to make it sparkle, is there an outside chance that he cares enough about you to meet your needs?
