Moses 7:30; 1 Nephi 1:14

Moses 7:30 And were it possible that man could number the particles of the earth, yea, millions of earths like this, it would not be a beginning to the number of thy creations; and thy curtains are stretched out still; and yet thou art there, and thy bosom is there; and also thou art just; thou art merciful and kind forever;

1 Nephi 1:14 … Great and marvelous are thy works, O Lord God Almighty! Thy throne is high in the heavens, and thy power, and goodness, and mercy are over all the inhabitants of the earth; and, because thou art merciful, thou wilt not suffer those who come unto thee that they shall perish!

These two ideas seem almost impossible to exist together. But I know they do. 

God is beyond our comprehension. It says His creations are more than the number of particles on millions of worlds. I don’t know if that’s hyperbole or literal, but the idea that we can’t comprehend the number of His creations is constant. 

And yet, He is merciful and kind and long suffering and (I love this one) will not turn ANY away who come to Him. 

We are children of a magnificent Father. We can do this short journey through mortality with Him.
