God is in the details

i's dotted, t's crossed and
each of your hairs accounted for!!!
"“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 than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?" - Matthew 6:25-27 
 
"Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies and yet they are not forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered! Don't be afraid - you are worth more than many sparrows!" - Jesus, Luke 12:6-7
"Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord. You hem me in - behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain." - Psalm 139:4-6
"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." - Psalm 139:14-16 

Of course He is! We didn't happen by chance and this amazing world and us amazing creatures were DESIGNED so brilliantly, so perfectly, so purposefully, by a perfect, loving God who created us for His pleasure, so He is not going to leave us alone - after such a loving and perfectly thought out creation - and not be involved in our lives! He modeled the whole idea of a parent / child relationship after His love and care for us - you think and care for your children all the minutes of their lives - so does God!  

"He determines the numbers of stars
and calls them each by name." - Psalm 147:4
 
You keep track of all my sorrows. 
You have collected all my tears in your bottle.
You have recorded each one in your book." - Psalm 56:8
 
"The Lord makes firm the steps
of the one who delights in him." - Psalm 37:23
