Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

I'm An Orange Moon

The Light That Never Fails

We all, with unveiled face,
beholding... the glory of the Lord

(2 Corinthians 3:18)
We must build our faith not on fading lights but on the Light that never fails.
A Christian servant is one who perpetually looks into the face of God and then
goes forth to talk to others.
(Quote from "My Utmost FOR HIS Highest" by Oswald Chambers' one minute devotions)

I read this truth two days ago... And experience it for myself time and time again.
When I'm in a meeting, knowing myself to be out of fear for what people may think about me, and determined to meet with God, I know this is true; We are made to reflect the Light.
Erykah Badu, however weird her mindset may be, had this song, and it comes to my mind quite often. This song "orange moon", is what I feel when I've had not just another service where we just sing our songs and leave unchanged
(I'm fed up with those kind of meetings, our prayer should be that a meeting will honor God as God, will not leave us unchanged, and will be a real meeting with God instead of just a humanistic 'nice' gathering going on),
but sensed a glimpse of His Light. Whenever that happens, it hits me. Because every time I'm deeply honored that God Himself continually tries to come into relation with us.

Im an orange moon
Reflecting the light of the sun

I praise the day
He turned my way
and He smiled at me
just smiled at me

How good He is
How God He is
I'm an orange moon
I'm brighter than before
Reflecting the light of the Son
