How vast is the universe? A divine power created the heavens but how big?

A Grain of Sand Called Earth

Looking out into the star speckled sky asking myself is there more life out there besides earth?

What if each star I see has planets around them equaling a grain of sand on the beach.

Earth and all the planets including our sun, a grain of sand each on the beach.

Except an infinite beach when God a divine power created the heavens.

Just maybe .01 % has life.

How many buckets of sand would one fill?

And life like us out there who knows for now.

Will other life find us first?

Or will we figure out a way.

And as I walk barefoot in the sand I wonder if a sand dune equals a universe of stars.

A divine power to construct it all.

An interesting piece. Thank God for His creative ability, as He spoke and the World came to be (Genesis 1). We are living in serious times, requiring God's sealing and Sanctification (Romans 8:30, Rev 7:1-4). Please read my piece on "New Covenant Experience" and the "ForthComing Mark of the Beast".

Thank You and God is an awesome God and to comprehend how vast the universe is that God created what's that say about God wow. lol I've been told that I think outside the box and think too deep. I pose questions that many never thought of or never brought out in the open but only to do in a positive way. Peace Love Harmony and God Bless. nos

Hi there. This is the first of your pieces that I have read, and I'm keen to see more. I heard that there are more stars than grains of sand on earth (wouldn't like to count!) It blows your mind. Makes me in awe of Gods creation. Ricky.

A unique twist to life as we know it. I have never thought about it like that, it would be incredible to find another life form similar to us out there. Simple yet interesting. Very well written! xox jen

Thank You I just wanted to state the fact that we do not have the technology to make a statement of how big the universe is. And there is a saying there are many rooms in God's house. Just what if some of those room are for other life like us? Well any way it goes back to the old statemnet the world is flat=the universe is this big and no intelligent life out there statement blah. .00000000001 % chance of intell. life how much is this because of planets being viewed around stars I think the count is 75. Peace Love Harmony. nos
