With our Lord one day is like a thousand years,
and a thousand years are like one day.
With each passing second God observes and controls
trillions of global events in His own invisible way,
Such as the speed of the winds, the migration of animals,
the movement of the tides, and the colors of the sunset.
He who created the entire universe in just six days
can control anything He wishes on our small planet.
Tasks that would be impossible for man and his technology
present absolutely no challenge for our Lord above.
If there is something you need, then ask God to help you.
Whatever His answer, you can trust in His love.
