It is a vast and endless space.
The flower is slender in the stem, the petals are shaped elegantly, others strongly; some are sleek and richly green and waxy – so waxy that in sunlight, it catches the light on its surface. Some petals are beautifully coloured in hues as varied as the sky, shaped to catch the eye with its tilt of head or curve to its sides.
It is intricate in its detail.
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air – they do not sow or reap or put away in barns, and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them*
(*Matthew 6:25-26 NIV)
Such attention to detail.
No matter how vast his creation to our human eye, our Heavenly Father sees every tiny detail. There is nothing He does not see, nothing He does not know. Dear Lord only you know how much there is to see. And I know that what I do see is only part of what is to be seen; that the beauty I see with my physical eye is a reflection of your glory. I praise you Lord, and I pray: teach me Lord and guide me that I may be good in your sight, for you see even the smallest detail in all this vast space.
