On one of the darkest moments in my life, I asked for a sign I was loved.

Not much happened that day, except that all of a sudden I received strong guidance to go to a popular lookout. I was resisting at first, but the voice in my head was too insistent for me to ignore.

I took my car and drove to where I was guided to go. I didn’t know what I was looking for or what I was doing there, so I bought a hot chocolate and sat on a chair overlooking the city.

That night there was a full moon, but it was so overcasted you couldn’t see a star in the sky.

I sat there a bit confused, feeling a little crazy.

I kept staring at the horizon while drinking my hot chocolate when suddenly I started seeing a light in the distance. The light became brighter and brighter. I couldn’t believe my eyes as I realised the light I was seeing was the moon being revealed from behind the clouds. It revealed itself completely and was very bright and beautiful! It took about 5 minutes and it hid again. The sky became dark again.

Only a few vigilant people noticed the show. I could see how other people were distracted by having conversations with their friends and giving their back to the glorious view.

I can’t explain the feeling inside when I realised that this was my proof. I was deeply loved! There was no doubt! I was so excited and happy that night! Everything was going to be alright!

At the time I only saw this as the response to my desperate request. I didn’t see the analogy to our lives.

Just like the moon behind the clouds, the love of God is always there for us even if we are not able to see it clearly. If we pay attention and trust, we will be guided to where we need to go, to what we need to do. If we continue to pay attention we will be able to see the light so clear it will always illuminate our hearts!

We are deeply loved!
