Have you considered. . . .

We could not breathe without the moon! Day in and day out earth’s moon causes the ocean tides. The moon’s gravity pulls upon the water as it orbits the earth resulting in the water bulging, and we experience high tides while some parts have low tides. As the earth rotates, the moon causes two high tides and two low tides every 24 hours. When these high tides wash up on shore. they drag back into the ocean anything in its path, including impurities. These impurities are then eaten by microbes deep within the oceans. The high tides are actually cleaning our shorelines! What if there was no moon? Our oceans would not have [sufficient]  tides resulting in stagnant and stinking oceans. Sea life would die, ocean plant life would also die. Much of earth’s oxygen comes from plants in the ocean. If sea plants died, we would not have sufficient oxygen for life. Our very breath is dependent on lunar tides!

. . . stop and consider God’s wonders. (Job 37:14)

Our Creator has given us an unusually large moon with enough gravity to pull on the ocean waters. He provides everything we need! Count your blessings.
