The Universe!

Hey! I wrote this some time last year for Addie's "email/newspaper" thingy. Just thought I would post it on here.

The Universe
By Zoe

Have you ever thought about just how enormous the Universe is? Think about how huge the Earth seems to us- so huge that it can take days to travel in a car just across our country alone! Even in an airplane it can still take hours!

Now, take a look at the size difference between the earth and Jupiter- one thousand times the size! Wow! What a difference!

And you just thought Jupiter was huge! Look again!

The sun is massive- about 880,000 miles in diameter. It is about 1,000 times larger than Jupiter, and 1 Million times the size of Earth! If that is just the sun, how big do you think the Solar System alone is? Pretty big huh? I’d say! It just so happens to be just a tiny spec in comparison to the whole Milky Way galaxy! Imagine how big the Milky Way must be!
From what Astronomers have observed, there are about 100 Billion galaxies in the Universe; and they are nowhere close to seeing the whole Universe to the very end. According to the Bible they never will; Jeremiah 31:37 says, “This is what the LORD says: "Only if the heavens above can be measured and the foundations of the earth below be searched out will I reject all the descendants of Israel because of all they have done," declares the LORD.” Since God will never abandon Israel, astronomers will never see the end of the Universe.

Hebrews 11:3
By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

Do you see how massive the Universe is? How great God is to have created something to incredible and amazing! How small us humans are in comparison, yet God still cares about every single one of us and hears every prayer. He loves us so much…more than we can possibly imagine. He sent his only son to die to save us! That is how great His love for us is!
God is so amazing and powerful; nothing is too big or too difficult for God to handle. If you need help, ask God and trust him. He has a plan for you, and no matter what, if you trust him, everything will be okay.

Jeremiah 31:35
This is what the LORD says, he who appoints the sun to shine by day, who decrees the moon and stars to shine by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar— the LORD Almighty is his name.

Jeremiah 29:13

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. (NIV)
