He cares.

Standard

Behold, God is mighty.

He does not withdraw his eyes from the righteous,

Behold, God is great, and we know him not;

the number of his years is unsearchable.

He draws up the drops of water, which distill as rain to the streams; the clouds pour down their moisture and abundant showers fall on mankind.

He fills his hands with lightning and commands it to strike its mark.

And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow,

won’t he more surely care for you?

You have so little faith.

God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways; He does great things beyond our understanding.
He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth,’ and to the rain shower, ‘Be a mighty downpour.’

“Have you commanded the morning since your days began,

and caused the dawn to know its place,

that it might take hold of the skirts of the earth?”

The breath of God produces ice, and the broad waters become frozen.

At His direction the clouds swirl around over the face of the whole earth to do whatever He commands them.

“Do you know when the mountain goats give birth?
    Do you watch when the doe bears her fawn?
  Do you count the months till they bear?
    Do you know the time they give birth?”

[I do.]

And this God, He formed out of the ground’s dust,

man.

For You formed my inward parts;

You knitted me together in my mother’s womb.

I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

My frame was not hidden from you when I was being made in secret,

intricately woven in the depths of the earth.

Your eyes saw my unformed substance;

in your book were written,

every one of them, the days that were formed for me,

when as yet there was none of them.

I awake, and I am still with You.

So dear friend,  If this God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, won’t He

more surely

care for you?”

And I am certain that God, who began the good work within us – and our Kyle, will continue his work until it is finally finished at the day of Christ Jesus.

Job  36, 37, 38, 39. Genesis 1. Psalm 139. Matthew 6. Philippians 1.

About Kim

I am a sinner, miraculously saved by grace, living by faith, and pressing toward the mark of being more like Christ. I absolutely love being a stay-at-home mom! I'm also a caterer for a few weddings throughout the year, a baker, and a party planner. And I love to play in other people's kitchens as well as my own! My husband, Chris, just finished his studies for his MA degree in Pastoral Studies. He's a wonderful (and super smart!) daddy - and the most loving and supportive husband. My two beautiful daughters, Chloe and Kami, are the joys of our lives! We pray that they both would be greatly used of the Lord. Throughout their short time here on earth, we have learned so much about ourselves, our God, and the gratefulness we have towards our own parents, who raised us in the ways of God's Word. Our third unborn child is a blessing as well - even after its recent pre-diagnosis of Trisomy 18, or Edwards Syndrome. This blog has kinda turned into a little journal of sorts of our dark journey down this rather uncommon road. I stay busy cooking, cleaning, gardening, and raising the plants I killed back to life, and homeschooling. I blog when get the chance. :) We are always happy to have visitors, so please stop by anytime! Although, if you do give us a call first, we'll make sure to have some fresh cookies and sweet tea available when you arrive!
