Our Sun is the closest star to Earth and it is 93-million miles away.
Alpha Centauri is the next closest star and it is 26-trillion miles away.
If we had a spaceship that could travel at a speed of one-million miles per hour,
Then we could travel to Alpha Centauri in 2,968 years if we had enough power.
The next time you look up and see all the beautiful stars in the sky at night,
Remember it would take about 3,000 years to travel to just one of those lights.

In the beginning God said, “Let there be light.” And what God said was instantly done.
On the fourth day God created over 100-billion stars and He named every single one.
It was EASY for God to create 100-billion stars just like the Bible says that He did.
God spoke and the stars appeared because all creation had to do whatever God said.

Are you in a situation or facing a task over which you have no control at all?
Then pray, and have faith, and remember that with God nothing is impossible.
