I Am The Moon

8/22/2012 — cori

I am the moon
just a rock
dirty, dusty, dented
there’s no beauty in me
except that which I reflect,
the Son.
The beautiful and brilliant
radiates in me
reflects through me
resonates from me.

I am the moon.
I shine because of Him
not because of me.
The beauty seen in me
is only the glory of Him
shining in the dark
to give 
comfort and love 
 hope and light 
to all
in the dark of night.

I am the moon
created to shine 
because of the Son,
for the Son,
by the Son.
I am noticed only
when I’m reflecting
His radiant light.
I have none of my own
I cannot help the sun shine
I can only be
and let him do the rest in me.
