Does Heavenly Father know how many leaves there are in the whole world?

I’m sure He does.

Does He know how many blades of grass there are?

Of course.

Does He know how many ants there are?

He knows everything, Matt. He even knows what you’re wondering about today.

Does He really know when I’m worried or afraid and what I’m worried or afraid about, even though I’m just one boy?

Matt, to Him you’re not just one boy. You’re His precious son. He knows about you and all your worries. And He wants you to talk over your troubles with Him. He will really listen.

Why do you look so happy, Matt?

Because of the leaves and the grass and the ants.
