We are called to be reflections of God’s love to those around us. That would be impossible for us to do in our own power, but we don’t have to. God is ready and waiting for us to ask Him for help.
Here is the “Tena story” (my mom) from Pastor Scott Elgersma’s January 28, 2022, devotional. He tells her story to illustrate this point: “May God invade our lives today. May he come in unexpected ways. When he comes, may we all be open to the love he offers us. May that love transform us to experience a deeper, more intimate relationship with him. And maybe he’ll use an energetic 80-year-old woman to do it.”
In order to reflect God, we need to spend time in His light. We are “the man” in the moon, reflecting the light of God, the source of all light, our sun.
GOD REFLECTIONS: THE MAN IN THE MOON
Do you see him?
The moon is full, round, and brilliant— so bright that trees cast shadows and I can find my way in the darkness.
I stand still and look at the moon, in awe at the beauty, whispering thanks for the light,
and I see him— the man in the moon, looking lovingly at all on earth, and I can almost feel my hand holding his.
Lord, I want to be like a full moon shining in the darkness, reflecting you with my fullest capacity without waxing or waning— glowing with your light, holding your hand.
When you look at me do you see Him?
