This is the true story of a conversation I had with God while driving home last night...
As I drove the I-15 from Ogden to Riverdale, I looked up and saw this beautiful full moon. It seemed so bright and alive, that I just had to thank God for not just creating the universe, but for putting so much beauty into it.
When I got done, I heard these Words from God: "I created it just for you."
I was perplexed, so I asked: "But God, what about everyone else who is enjoying it tonight."
I swear I could hear Him gently laugh as he said: "I created the moon for everyone tonight, but each person who looks up and admires that orb right now will find a specific reason, just for them, why it means something special."
"O.K. God, so what is mine? What purpose does the moon have for me?"
"To remind you that I made it just for you!..." I laughed and he continued, "To remind you that I love you."
"Thanks God, I love you too!"
The tone of His whispering changed: "You miss her tonight, don't you? Do you wish you could see her?"
As a tear came to my eye, I replied, "I do, God."
"I know. But you get to see me, tonight."
"Where do I see you, Lord?"
I couldn't help but laugh as God told me, "In the moon created just for you."
"Thank you, Father!"
"I love you, Wayne."
17 Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vines; even though the olive crop fails, and the fields lie empty and barren; even though the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty,
18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!
19 The Sovereign Lord is my strength! He makes me as surefooted as a deer, able to tread upon the heights.
