Sometimes, God speaks without words.
This happened about 10 years ago.
I was burdened for my children’s salvation.
Many years, and many tears.
Many thoughts of regret. What had I done wrong?
Had a been a bad mom?
Was I a failure as a witness for the Lord, to even my own family?
It had been raining, and I was on my way home from work.
I was crying out to God in my heart, crying as I drove.
My heart was broken, as I remembered distressful events I had just experienced.
The route home was the usual one.
Somewhat rural, which would lead to a busier highway and the next town.
Suddenly, I looked up, and there was a rainbow actually ending on the portion of the road I was driving on.
It was in front of me.
Amazed, l looked around.
It was beautiful!
And there was a second rainbow too!
What I actually saw looked similar to this.
It was 2 rainbows, forming a curved cross in the sky.
The first rainbow I saw ended on the road in front of me.
The end of second rainbow was a little more difficult to locate, but it appeared to end on the path I was taking to get home.
I felt such joy to look at this unusual event, and was excited as I made my way home.
I felt this was God’s open promise and covenant with me for my children.
It is many years later, and when I get discouraged, I remember the 2 rainbows.
One for each child.
And the shape of the cross in the sky.
Someday, it will come true, because God made it clear to me.
For all those of you who have lost loved ones:
…. remember that God will keep his covenant with you, if you remember His promises for good, and not for evil.
For all those in a “flood,” there is a rainbow covenant that comes with it.
And you WILL make it through to final victory.
This is not my promise to you. It is God’s.
