Emotionally, this was a very bad week. I need to go back and reread the words that God gave me in the book I just wrote. Last Sunday at church, I was crying during the service partly because I was praising God and partly because I was overwhelmed because of some of the things I am going through right now. My husband and I are going to be empty nesters after my son graduates high school at the end of June and then goes off to Marine boot camp a week later. Then soon after he is gone we are going to move in with my mother-in-law to help her maintain and share her home since we need to downsize anyway. But we do not have a date for this move since we do not know when his employer might transfer him. It could be anytime between May and December of this year. And there are a couple of other minor irritations that are not worth mentioning.
But God is good! Usually rainbows are high up in the sky, we can see them but they are so far away they are untouchable. We can take pictures of them but they are just out of reach. Here in the Pacific Northwest it rains a lot but that also means it is very green: the evergreens and other trees, the grass for most of the year and we can grow many fruits and vegetables here because of the wet weather. It also means we see a lot of rainbows because when the clouds disappear suddenly as they do often, the rainbows come out. Today a rainbow appeared right in front of me on the road as I was driving! It was large and full of bright colors, not like the narrow ones you see in the sky and so amazing! If I wasn’t driving I would have taken a picture but I don’t think that would have been a good idea, grin.
God created rainbows to remind Noah that He would never again destroy the earth or those that live on it. Today He gave me a rainbow to remind me just when I think I might want to give up and throw in the towel, God shows up and gives me a sign that all is well. It will be well because He is with us and has not forgotten us. Click To TweetGod loves us so much that He takes time to send us rainbows, birds and coins! I have heard countless stories of people who have encounters with God through unusual signs and know that they are a message from God. I hope you will take the time today and praise God because He will help you find some rainbows too. Click To TweetGod bless you all!
I leave you with Paul’s wish for the Philippians, and my wish for you: “May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation, the right righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ, for this will bring much glory and praise to God.” Phil. 1:11
