GOD’S RAINBOW

Many years ago, I wrote a musical play based on Noah and the Ark. It was called, “The Rainbow Promise.” In the final scene of the play, a rainbow appears to assure the people who were saved from the great flood, that God promises never to destroy the world with another flood. That symbol has been used in many ways over the years. On St Patrick’s Day, we often see a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. In today’s world it has been used for a variety of causes, but the first rainbow, set in the sky by God, Himself, is truly a promise that God will keep.

We could be in for storms in this life. Each one may seem worse than the past. Each one carries new burdens – depression – anxiety – anger – fear – discontent – but at the end of each storm, we can count on a rainbow from God. His promises are never broken. His Word is always true. The real pot of gold at the end is waiting for us in heaven. He made sure that the entire world would be saved from the infection of sin when He sent His Son to save it. The only condition is that we have faith and believe that promise. Those are also gifts from the Holy Spirit and not of our own doing. Jesus already died for every sin. The debt has been paid in full.

As I write these words, I can’t help but look at this story as make believe and happily ever afters, but the truth is, God has provided us with just that. The rainbow can be a reminder of His love for us and His fulfillment of His promises. No matter what the world throws at us, we have been redeemed and can look forward to eternity in paradise where there is no more sorrow, no more tears, and peace everlasting. The very first rainbow should help us remember that.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    Kathy, I think it’s so amazing that you write /wrote musical plays. I had a new thought–I would’ve loved to have performed with you. I love how you bring up the “storms” of life and share about God’s promise–the rainbow. It’s so beautiful. Love and hugs. I will be working with the little kids tomorrow at Club Jr. and will sing some songs with them. I know that based on the parents of these special kids I can share the promise, too.

        Aw, thank you, Kathy. Things are challenging in the family (long story)…After many years things are coming to the forefront that we blinds would be one day. I cried more last Sunday and Monday than I have in weeks. I’m truly facing sorrow head-on and moving forward with only the grace of God! I pray the same for you both! 💛♥️💚

        I know how you feel. This has been a trying time for all of us. Emotions are running at an incredible high point. We have lost our smiles, our laughter, our ability to enjoy each other and all the uglies seem to enjoy tempting us when we’re at such a point. God is much stronger than any problem we face. I have confidence in that, and I know you do too. He’s storing those tears in a bottle, They become the impetus for us to press on.

        Amen! This morning I went to Club Jr and laughed and sang with our special young kids. My heart is full. As long as I can keep giving back I can heal and keep growing. Thank you for being here and always sharing your faith and encouragement. 💛♥️❤️

        My dear, sweet friend, this has been a time of tears in so many ways. People aren’t communicating the way they used to. We have been isolated from the actuality of life and we see news everyday of violence and hatred. We can take heart that our Savior, Jesus, knows all about those feelings because he experienced them too. Our tears are a way of releasing some of the hurt and pain from our bodies. He collects those tears in a bottle as an impetus for us to press on. Hang in there. He’s got this!
