The Promise Found in a Rainbow

Standard

 

Fall RainbowThis has been a particularly difficult week. While the weather has been unusually warm despite the cloudy skies, there has not been the typical fall rain. As I drove to exercise class, I cried out to God to show me how we were going to get through this challenge. I drove into the parking lot and sat in the car for a few minutes. When I grabbed my gear and looked toward the west, there was a beautiful Fall Maple tree with brilliant orange leaves and a rainbow coming out from behind it. It was a beautiful sight, but more importantly, it was there for me. Rainbows have long been a sign of promise since God sent the rainbow after the flood. Today, this was for me, a promise that God has this situation, He is in control and has me and my family in His care. That I can rest in his care of my family and I can have hope.
