God does notice us...(Kimball)

Surely such a loving Father in heaven, who gave commandments to prevent human misery, will not forget the needs of each of his children. William Law observed: “It is said that the very hairs of your head are all numbered; is it not to teach us that nothing, not the smallest things imaginable, happen to us by chance? But if the smallest things we can conceive of are declared to be under the divine direction, need we, or can we, be more plainly taught that the greatest things of life, such as the manner of our coming into the world, our parents, the time, and other circumstances of our birth and condition, are all according to the eternal purposes, direction, and appointment of divine Providence?” ( A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life,  William Law, Sovereign Grace Publishers, Grand Rapids, Michigan, 1971.) God does notice us, and he watches over us. But it is usually through another person that he meets our needs. Spencer W. Kimball, First Presidency Message, December 1974 http://
