Always a Full Moon

The moon hangs stubbornly in its space several hours after the dawn. It is nearly full, I notice.

It gets me thinking — during my morning drive — about the waxing and waning. And the way the moon looks different depending on the day.

And then I remember. The moon is always full. Only my view of it changes.

As I begin my days of Dwelling in His presence, I pray I will keep Him always in full view. And know when I am seeing anything less, that I need to adjust my sight.

  1. Between your words on the moon and Sharon’s on the sun, I am so taken by this tonight. Just goodness. xoxo

    • God just loves to show himself in all kinds of “ordinary” ways, doesn’t He. It’s a special blessing when we notice it.

  2. I connect with this…you notice things and so do I. Thanks for noticing/

    • Don’t you just love the way God speaks through the things we take the time to notice!

  3. I’m pretty sure I will never look at the moon the same again. Thanks for that, Beth! I’m so glad you linked up for #ThreeWordWednesday.

    • Don’t think I’ll look at it the same way either, Kristin. God is so cool like that!

  4. Sharon

    This was great, and so true. Sometimes I have had a similar thought about the Sun. Even on cloudy days, it’s still shining – always shining. A good reminder that even on my own cloudy days, the SON is still shining!!


    • That’s a great addition to this line of thought, Sharon. Always there, whether I can see it or not.

  5. Oh Beth, this is so powerful. I never thought of this before. “The moon is always full. Only my view of it changes.” Praise God that He remains unchanging… no matter what my view. Thanks for this today. I enjoyed stopping by!

    • Yes, Karen. What a firm foundation indeed that God remains unchanged. I, too, am so very grateful. Thank you for stopping by.
