The other day I looked up into the sky and thought, “I haven’t seen any rainbows up in the sky in quite a while!”
I believe it was around two years ago that we saw them around here all the time, even double rainbows. What a joy it was to see them in the sky and to be reminded of God’s symbol of promise.
But when I looked up into the sky the other day and wondered with my question about where the rainbows have gone, I said to the Lord,
“Lord, I haven’t seen a rainbow around here in a long time. Do You think we could have one to see in the sky soon? I miss seeing them. I love seeing reminders of Your promise.”
I guess it was kind of one of those childlike moments with my Heavenly Father. I suppose that was a childish kind of request. But it almost seemed to be placed upon my heart to ask Him for it.
Then on Sunday evening I was in the kitchen, when I looked out the window and saw the widest rainbow I think I had ever seen! It was low to the ground and very wide.
When I saw it I instantly remembered when I asked God if I could see one again soon, and I had to laugh as I connected everything together! Plus, it was just the moment I really did need to be reminded of His promises. He’s so good!
I grabbed my camera and ran outside to get a photo, and by the time I got there it had started to fade, but you can barely still see it in the picture.
It all comes down to this: He keeps His promises. He doesn’t forget about them. He loves to remind us that He is faithful. ?
Thank you, Father. ✨
