Word Filled Wednesday: Storms and Rainbows
Genesis 9:16 ESV
"When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.”
God used a rainbow after the great flood as a sign of His covenant with man. In rainbows, I see hope, God's promise for our future. When my life gets the stormiest, I always look for the rainbows, and true to His word, God always sends them. Sometimes, the rainbow is a kind word, a gesture, a blessing, an opportunity, a good friend, a cute purse, an unexpected card, one just never knows what form these rainbows will take.
Just when I think I might be at my lowest, I am reminded how blessed I truly am, and the best way I can thank God for the blessings and rainbows He sends me is to try to pass blessings on to others. I do not do this nearly enough in my life, and it is something that I want to work on more in the coming days. I promise to keep you posted on that.
So, if you are going through a stormy patch in your life, please, take a moment to look for a rainbow. It may show up in the least likely of places. Better yet, if you know of someone else who is in the middle of a storm, why not try being their rainbow instead?
