“Who else has held the oceans in His hand?
Who has measured off the heavens with His fingers?
Who else knows the weight of the earth
or has weighed the mountains and hills on a scale?
He picks up the whole earth as though it were a grain of sand.” Isaiah 40:12 & 15
And yet He knows YOUR name.
He counts your steps.
He knows the number of hairs on your head. (Luke 12:7)
He calls you “friend”. (John 15:1-17)
He calls you Child of God. (1 John 3:1)
You are His Beloved.
Who else has held the oceans in His hand… and your hand in His while saying, “Don’t be afraid I’m here to help you.” (Isaiah 41:13)
Who else has measured off the heavens with His fingers and allowed fingers to touch the nail-holes in His hands? (John 20:27)
Who else knows the weight of the earth and the heaviness that weighs down your soul?
Who else has weighed the mountains and hills on a scale AND the molehills you’ve made into mountains in your mind?
He picks up the whole earth as though it were a grain of sand and yet picks you up and clutches you to His heart like a favored daughter with a skinned knee and a broken heart.
My dearest Beloveds, our Father who lives in heaven cares for YOU! Take heart Dear One because you are dearly loved by none other than the creator of the heavens and the earth. And while He knows the name of each and every star, He LOVES YOU.

Click the link for more details, but I thought that considering the verse of the day this was an AMAZING picture to find to go with it!!!!! Oh, and those clouds, they’re about 4 LIGHT YEARS tall. That’s about 24 TRILLION miles! Our God is so AMAZING!!!!!
