No matter how things look, the moon is always round, and God is always good.

When the moon appears a waning crescent, still it is round.

When it waxes gibbous, still it is round.
|half moon at twilight|
New or full or in between, still it is round.
Sometimes circumstances hide God's face from us for a while, and sometimes His goodness shines so brightly we must hide our faces. Either way, we must continually betake ourselves back to His unchanging Word for the unchanging truth, our North Star:
God is always good, and His steadfast love endures forever.
