Sunrise

blood moon, death, life

The blood moon tonight was dark. It was red. It was scary, like death.

Then the sun started to rise in the lower left corner. The reflection of light changed the atmosphere on the surface of the moon.

But also it changed on the earth.

The water shimmered a subtle glimmer. There was a bit of a twinkle in the sky. Perhaps the blood moon was not intended for all this “end of the world” talk? Perhaps it was a message that a new day dawns?

The Creator calls. He speaks. It’s pretty clear what he’s saying to you and I… I sit here pondering these things. And I am reminded, “Arise, shine, for thy light has come. And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.” It’s dawn on the moon. May it also be dawn on your own life. If your faith is stagnant, may a renewed belief arise. If your attitude is jaded, may it be changed in the brightness of promise. If your past is scary, may the light on the corner of the moon remind you of the light ignited in your heart the day you became His son or daughter.

Though the sky grows black.
And the moon red.
When all the final words have been said.
The promise is, “I will be with you.”
