The Moon

The Moon

 

Thank You, Lord, for making

the moon to shine at night

When it’s full it’s glorious

Shining every bright

Yet I enjoy its stages

From full down to a slice.

My God, I sing Your praises

For the beauty of the night.

 

Everything has it’s stages.  Our life on this earth has various stages.  As a child, we are always looking forward to the next stage rather than enjoying the stage we are.  As adults, we tend to look to the future rather than enjoying the day the Lord has given us.  How often do we say, “When this happens…..” or “When this is over…..”  What is past is past and no longer in our control.  What is in the future is unknown to us and in God’s control.  We must learn to enjoy each day God has given us.  We must learn to look to the challenges and privileges of that day.  We can put the past in God’s hands and trust His plans for our future.  “This is the day the Lord has made.  We will rejoice and be glad in it.”
