In the midst of storms in my life,
I often choose to sit down and give up!
Storms can be overwhelming and,
when I cannot see anything but
the dark clouds all around me,
I climb into that dark pit of despair and
mix my tears with the heavy rain falling everywhere . . .
God has made promises and
I can look back in my life and
see times when I have come
through other storms and I REMEMBER—
God put a rainbow in the sky
to confirm the Covenant,
the promise made to mankind t
hat no storm would destroy all life on earth again . . .
and one day, after a really strong storm,
I saw the rainbow in the sky and then,
as I watched the rainbow fade away,
an amazing display of glorious light
came into that same sky and I THOUGHT—
The rainbow confirmed God’s promise and
the “glorious light” confirmed God’s presence
through the storm and after the storm . . .
my heart was filled with an assurance that God
was showing me a “cycle” that I could trust
in my own life: the storm, the rainbow, the light . . .
when storms are what I see and
fear fills my heart and mind, I KNOW—
• the storm
(I can see that!)
• the rainbow
(I can trust the promises of God) and
• the light and
(I can know God will never leave me)
SO, the cycle confirming
God’s Word and
continues in my life . . . SO I—
look to God and believe . . .
Wait on the Lord:
be of good courage, and
he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the Lord.
it’s all about GOD . . .
our amazing GOD!
