If you were a star
how would you stand out
among so many lights
If you were a snowflake
how would you reach gloved finger
to be caught in flight
If you were a firefly
how many others
would you have to out blink
if you one daisy in an ocean of fields
how could anyone know
if you were yellow or pink
what humans selecting 1s and 0s
compiling our value
what do they know?
The fragrant rose hopes
to be picked from above
fortunately God is a being of love
He never looks at us as one more thing
each of us more priceless
than the Hope diamond ring
The poem is silly but it conveys the fact that God knows: the name and voice of each star, He clothes each flower in the field, He knows when a bird falls, and He knows your needs (before you do.) Nature is so lovely to watch. Each day the birds come forth looking for food; Even in the winter there is food in our forest though the animals have to look harder for it. It’s there because God provides and He promises to do the same for us.
“Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”
“If then you cannot do even a very little thing, why do you worry about other matters?Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these.”
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?
