The moon climbed high into the starry sky, spilling her pale light into my room. I readied myself for sleep—another day done. I took off my shoes and thought about the needy prayers I’d been praying lately, asking God for help with this and that. I knelt by my bed and prayed, “God, you’ve carried me through so many ups and downs in my life, I hope I don’t wear you out.”
“Love is never a burden,” He said, His voice soft and tender.
He lifted me onto my feet and pulled me to Him. There, in the lanternlight of His moon, I stood safe in His eternal arms.
