This morning I woke up before dawn feeling a bit anxious and overwhelmed with the day ahead of me. As I was laying in bed trying to decide if I should go back to sleep or get on with the day I noticed a bright light shining through my bedroom curtains. The light was so bright it looked as if someone were shining a spot light in my back yard. Upon further investigation I found that the light was the full moon shining brightly in the sky.
From the darkness of my bedroom I noticed how brilliantly its light was shining through the night sky causing the darkness to look like day. Mesmerized by its beauty I sat down on the edge of my bed and I watched as the moon slowly and silently began to slip down the night sky causing me to forget my anxiousness as peace washed over me.
As the moon dropped down below the horizon the sky began to darken and I felt some of the anxiousness begin to slip back in but just then my attention was drawn to the other side of the room to a faint light showing though the curtains.
I opened the curtains and my eyes looked into the sky where I saw a faint orange glow just below the tree line.
Slowly the sky began to brighten with beautiful pinks, blues and purples as the sun started to slip up the sky peaking over the horizon.
Within a matter of minutes the sun rose up into the sky its brilliant light shining as it chased away the darkness.
As I watched this wonderful gift God blessed me to see today I realize in the dark there is always light.
In the darkness of night the stars and the moon will always shine and as the day time approaches the sun will always rise.
God is so ever faithful and will always be here not just in the moonsets and sunrises but He is also ever present in my heart He is the beginning and the end, the forever eternal light that always shines chasing away my anxiousness as He chases away the dark.
You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. Psalm 18:28
