But when God brought this to our sky this morning I knew I had to share because His love and faithfulness simply overwhelmed me.
Because I prayed for this rainbow. This exact rainbow. I knew it was mine right when I saw it.
We read the story of Noah's Ark three days ago during night time devotions. Charissa sighed when she saw the picture of the rainbow saying she missed seeing rainbows. We haven't seen one since moving here to Cooke. I prayed silently that God would give Charissa a rainbow. I knew it was a little thing, there are so many more important things for Him to do. But He gave us a rainbow this morning. Charissa was excited, but I was so full of wonder it hurt. God answered my prayer so quickly and right in our backyard. I stood in my pajamas on the porch watching as the colors intensified and then split into a double rainbow. I was spellbound.
Early this winter I struggled so much with my own inadequacy for what God has called me to as a wife, mother and our ministry. I was stretched thin, filled with depression and guilt as my arms ached for the baby I would never hold.
But God has only wooed me through His Word, His faithfulness, His love. Now the bird's sing outside as a new little person flutters with life in my womb.
This rainbow reminded me to keep looking up with expectation.
I just saw this link up and I knew I had to share :-)
