“Oh God, before everything the world was without shape and void and darkness was on the face of the deep. Please help me to remember that this dark moon is a symbol to remind me that I can begin again. Where I have stumbled You have lifted me. Where I have fallen, You have comforted me. Allow me to grow with the waxing of this moon so that I may shine with Your light. Amen.”
Ah, the New Moon. So our journey begins. With the New Moon, God reminds us of the Beginning of all things.
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty. Darkness was on the surface of the deep. God’s Spirit was hovering over the surface of the waters.” Geneses 1: 1-2
Darkness is not a bad thing, for even in the blackest night God’s Spirit is still there. Darkness is a time of Beginnings. We lived for nine months in darkness before our birth. Seeds sprout in darkness. God is in that darkness just as God is in the light. God is everywhere. God’s Spirit is here, now. So, no matter how far you have strayed into spiritual darkness, God shows us by the New Moon that we can start again. We can be forgiven for anything we have done, for God is Love. God is the Light that we must strive for to be truly happy, to truly be all that we wish to be. Even in the darkest night the light of God still shines for those who will see. Can you see? Will you try?
Please join me in prayer.
“I come to you, my God, with a grateful heart. Thank You, O Lord for surrounding me with your unconditional Love and Divine Acceptance. Thank You, O Lord for showering me with all your sacred blessings. Please open my heart so that I am truly grateful for all that you have done, are doing and will do, now and forever. I am grateful for the chance for a new beginning, a chance to try again to grow in Your Light. I am grateful that you forgive my sins, because I love you and it hurts me to think that I have hurt you when I have strayed. I am grateful for Your Love. For all these things – Thank You, O Lord. Amen.”
Please meditate and listen to God.
Peace be with you.
