Missed the moon

Reports all over the news, scattered notes on Facebook, Twitter, blogs;

Watch for the moon, the biggest, brightest moon in years, the super moon.

I joined in the excitement, always delighted to witness God's glory displayed.  Perhaps we'd even try to capture some digital images, saving a memory in pixels.

A storm was forecast: freezing rain, wind, snow.  And the clouds blew in and filled the skies.  Our chance to see the moon, this very special moon, dashed.  Our night was dark.

Yet I knew the moon was there even if I could not see it.  I can trust my views of prior moons, my knowledge that the moon exists, waxes and wanes month after month, ever faithful.

In the same way, I know my God is there, even when I cannot experience Him with my natural senses.  Unlike the moon, in Him there is no waning.  He Is always.  His glory vast and deep.  I have learned I need not see to know.

Jesus said, "So, you believe because you've seen with your own eyes. Even better blessings are in store for those who believe without seeing."  John 20:29 The Message

It was cloudy here too and we missed it too. Praise God He is always there and always just the same!
