Do you believe that there is somebody bigger than you and I? Do you think that there is someone out there who has control of everything? When we take time to think about it, it is impossible that there is no one out there who has created everything in this world. It is impossible that all the trees just sprouted out and grew by themselves. There is surely somebody who’s greater than us, and without Him, we wouldn’t be here.

“Somebody Bigger Than You and I”
