If you are the sun
then I wanna be the moon
I wanna reflect the light that shines from you
God I wanna let you know
I want everything you are
I’m waiting for the morning light to show
a fire in the dark
Shine your light from the inside out
I wanna be more like you
If you are the sun, I wanna be the moon
I wanna be the moon*
If He is the Sun, than I want to be the moon. I want to reflect Him. Tonight as I watched the sun set, it hit me that the moon only shines in the dark – when the sun isn’t visible. The darker the night – the brighter the light. I was a little indignant at first – why can’t the I see the moon’s light next to the sun’s? Why does the sun have to go down before we can see more than a faint outline of the moon?
We can’t reflect the Father’s light when we are with Him, the only light we see then is the Fathers. It’s in the darkness of life’s murky times that we reflect Him the most. And that is how He gets the glory – through our piercing reflection. It’s the absence of light that creates darkness. The light of the Son isn’t gone during the dark times – it’s waiting to be reflected through you.
*Lyric’s from Phil Wickam’s song – Sun and Moon
