I am looking at that big, orange orb currently shining through the trees as I sit on my pack porch. As a teacher, after today, I predicted it was a full moon. Something to be said about that, I am telling you!! But I digress….
Are you old enough to remember looking out the door with your brother the night man “first walked on the moon”? We swore we could see him walking, and yet as Walter Cronkite described it and may have even showed it via live feed (I don’t remember, after all it was several years ago), we were mesmerized by the thought that someone was that far away and that God knew it!
And I still am mesmerized! God knows it too. As i look at it even now, the peace is “touchable” and that is the kind of peace we all want and need. I have had some uncomfortable circumstances surround my life in recent weeks. NOTHING life threatening and there are far worse problems had by many….but there are still issues.
So, I have decided to heed my own advice that I have so often given to others….nothing is too big or too small for the Father. HE gets it, He understands. He values you, He loves you, and He wants you to learn from these experiences. He doesn’t want this trial or set of issues wasted. He knows you better than you know yourself. He will use this, if you let Him.
He created that “big moon”. He created you. There is nothing we cannot get through..little or small..by anyone’s definition. He is walking hand in hand with us, or better yet..carrying us. That big moon is my reminder this evening…the faithful witness.
be Blessed friends….
“The grace of The Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.” 1 Timothy 1:14
“it will be established forever, like the moon, the faithful witness in the sky” Psalm 89:37
