In Genesis 1:20 & 21, God speaks, “Let the waters teem with swarms of living creatures. . .

You are a creation of God. Infinite planning was put into every aspect of who you are becoming. Nothing about you is a surprise to your Heavenly Father. You can believe you are placed here for a purpose and equipped to do what God has called you to do. Doing so, you can experience the contentment and comfort the Lord wants you to enjoy.

Remember the sea monkeys. They are a great creation. “Are you not worth much more than they?” (Matthew 6:26).
