Look at the Stars

When you start worrying about things happening in your life or in the world around you, look at the stars..If it isn’t dark out and you can’t see the stars,/then look at the wildflowers..If it’s too cold for wildflowers, then look at the snowflakes that fall from the sky..There are endless stars in the sky, too many to count. The wildflowers are so vibrant and vast; you could never pick them all. So many snowflakes fall that they make large piles of snow and cover entire mountains. But God made each one of them..God created each star in the massive universe, and He also created you. In Matthew 6, Jesus says we don’t need to worry about anything, reminding us that/God made each wildflower beautiful even though it so quickly dies. He cares about every little problem and difficult situation you face. God decides when the snow falls, and He made each snowflake unique and stunning to look at. Similarly, He/made you on purpose, and you are precious to Him..Ultimately, God revealed His enormous care for His creation when Jesus came to earth—fully God and fully human. Because Jesus died on the cross and rose from the grave, we can look forward to the day He will return and restore every brokenness, in our own lives and in all of creation..If God cares about the stars and the wildflowers and the snowflakes, we can/know that He cares about us too. We don’t have to worry about anything. Instead, we can trust Him to take care of us and all the problems in the world around us. •/Bethany Acker.• How can looking at creation remind us of God’s trustworthy love?.• If you find yourself worrying a lot, you’re not alone. Jesus empathizes with you, and He wants to help. One of/the primary ways God helps His people is through His people.
