The middle school youth will understand how God calls us to be in a special type of relationship in which He provides for all our needs and we depend fully on Him. They also will understand ways in which they can deal with their worries and offer them to God.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains the Father’s plans for his precious creation:
God does not abandon his creatures to themselves. He not only gives them being and existence, but also, and at every moment, upholds and sustains them in being, enables them to act and brings them to their final end. Recognizing this utter dependence with respect to the Creator is a source of wisdom and freedom, of joy and confidence. (301)
God invites us to be in relationship with Him in a unique way: He can provide everything we need, and we can depend fully upon Him.
By his providence God protects and governs all things which he has made, “reaching mightily from one end of the earth to the other, and ordering all things well”’ For “all are open and laid bare to his eyes,” even those things which are yet to come into existence through the free action of creatures. The witness of Scripture is unanimous that the solicitude of divine providence is concrete and immediate; God cares for all, from the least things to the great events of the world and its history. (302-303)
