The moon reflects the sun's light, just as we reflect God's light. We don't shine on our own, but through His glory we become light to a darkened world. Interesting, that even though the shadow overtakes us, we still glow with His light.
Enjoy this video of the 2010 lunar eclipse, and pray about how God can use you as light in the dark places.
I wish that Mr. Castleman would have used This Little Light of Mine for the above video. Following is the best rendition of this song I have ever heard!
