The moon is now more dark than light. The waning of the moon is a sign that soon it will be dark again. As we think of our own oncoming night, our death, we are angered. Why is this happening at all! I shouldn’t have to die! But physical death itself is a symbol, a sign that this is not all that there is, just as the darkness of the new moon is just another beginning. Death is not an ending but a doorway that leads you back home. We see this in the moon. But there are other signs all around you. We need to look to the moon, to the winds, to the trees, and to others to see the signs of what God is telling us through His creation. I am not talking about astrology, or other future reading games. I am saying look for what God is telling you.
“When you see a cloud rising from the west, immediately you say, ‘A shower is coming,’ and so it happens. When a south wind blows, you say, ‘There will be a scorching heat,’ and it happens. You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky, but how is it that you don’t interpret this time? – Luke 12: 54 – 56
What are the signs we get from God? He shows us signs in so many ways. You pray asking God which school you should go to and then everywhere all you can see is the mascot animal of that school. Do we pay attention? We ask for healing of a friend, then suddenly everywhere people are talking about a new treatment. Do we pay attention?!
There is an old saying that religious people talk to God, and crazy people hear Him talk back. I think it’s the other way around. Religious people hear Him talk back if they are paying attention. Crazy people talk to God and don’t think He will talk back. There may not be a burning bush in your future but God always answers.
“All things, whatever you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.” – Matthew 21: 22
Pray and then listen for your answer. Look around, be aware, you will receive your answer.
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 signs that you give me, even though sometimes I forget to look. I am grateful that You always answer my prayers. I am grateful that I can see You working in my life through signs that You put there for me. I am grateful for Physical Death because that is how I return to You. I am grateful for signs of Your Love. For all these things – Thank You, O Lord. Amen.”
Please meditate and listen to God.
Peace be with you.
