Favorite Quote:
Nothing is as wonderful as knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. I have given up everything else and count it all as garbage. All I want is Christ -Philipians 3:8

Sitting here idly, I wait for my time.

But don’t be deceived, it is not I who shine.

I make myself ready for the role in which I take part,

So you will notice the Light even when it is dark.

You think I shine brightly – just for you,

But that is not what I’m doing, watch and see what I do.

I’m merely a reflection of Something bigger than me.

Look to the Source, that is the key.

Don’t give me credit, hold the applause.

If you miss out on the purpose, I’m simply a lost cause.

Turn your eyes to the Sun, Who gives such great light,

And uses me for It’s glory to reveal the Way in the night.

Someday my job will be over, and the Sun be revealed soon

But please, don’t look at me, I’m just a moon.

The author's comments:
So I was reading about Creation Day 4 and how the heavens declare God’s glory and anyway, I might known this before but it really hit me now. When God created the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night, (sun and moon) the reason the moon isn’t as bright is because it’s not a light source itself. It’s simply reflecting off the sun’s light creating a dimmer light for nighttime. This is an amazing thing, just as that is so, so it is that Christians are like the moon. We are not the light source ourselves (we are not God, just His vessels, His children). Jesus is the main light (the sun/SON).. We are just moons, reflecting Christ’s light. I think that is so cool! God uses creation to let us know of the way of salvation. So I wrote this poem about the moon because that is all we are, being used by God for His glory, not our own. <3
