Would the Sun Tell the Moon Not to Shine? By Brenda Drake

When you feel you are a dull and ordinary person with no great value, remember with Jesus on the inside there is no way you are of little significance.  It is impossible that you are not seen as a light to another with His love dwelling inside.   

Would the Sun tell the Moon Not to Shine?

Would the sun tell the moon not to shine?  How could this be?
The moon’s light is only because of the sun’s energy
So many in wonder gaze at the moon’s light
For it is indeed a beautiful sight
It reflects only a few of the rays of the sun
But it lights up the night for someone
God’s children are also a light on the earth that others can see
Their witness testifies that they are reflections of Divinity
Would the Son tell the Church to not shine?
If it does not draw by its light it is not Mine.
Be holy for I am holy; be merciful and full of grace.
Forgive as I have forgiven you and My light shines from your face.
Worry and fear surrounds with clouds of doubt
Throw them aside; trust God and your light reaches out.
Would the sun tell the moon not to shine? How could this be?
It would be foolish for it would be impossibility.
When the Church is complete it will fully know,
The profit that comes from the light they throw.
Until then, live right, live clean and pure before the Son
And your face will shine forever as the “Chosen One”

2 Corinthians 4:6
For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

The Star of Creation By Brenda Drake

I remember most always as a child a star was placed above our Christmas tree.  A few times I have positioned an angel there but somehow I prefer the star.  When Jesus was born the Wise-men saw His star in the night sky and followed it to worship the Light of the World.  The Creator of the stars became the world’s greatest citizen; and in my mind He is the Star of Creation

The Star of Creation

The star’s appearance caused great joy,
In the manger was born a baby boy.
The son of a carpenter He was trained,
The mystery of His conception within remained.
His purpose of appearing upon the mind;
Caused Mary to ponder many times.
The appearance of a star upon the tree,
Can a holy reminder be.
The Light of the world hung on a tree too.
He that is Light, Love and Life died for me and you.
When the tomb was closed up tight,
Evil believed they snuffed out the Light.
But He is alive! The tomb is empty and bare.
No matter how long you search He is not there.
Now the risen Savior says “Come,
When you believe, His life and yours is made as one.”
His joy is a gift presented at each days start,
The Star of Heaven rules within your heart.
Joyfully celebrate the birth of Christ
And rejoice that He is risen in your life.
There is much to look forward too for you see,
The Star of all creation soon returns for thee.

Matthew 2:1-2
After Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of King Herod, wise men from the east arrived unexpectedly in Jerusalem,saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him.”
