The Dark Side of the Moon

The other night, walking to my apartment in the darkness of the night, I could actually see where I was walking.  Didn't give it much thought until I looked up and saw the moon.  What a beautiful sight it was.  I could see the outline of it, part dark and part so bright that it lit my path.  It brought tears to my eyes and spoke to me of my present life situation, darkness and light.  So much of it right now is in the dark.  However, there are glimpses of light showing me that the path I am walking will lead me on the way.  

"Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward.  For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise".(Hebrews 10: 35-36)

I need to fix my eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of my faith. When my burdens are heavy and don't understand life situations, I need to run the race before me with perseverance, seeing the dark side but knowing there is light there too.
