‘I have placed my rainbow in the clouds. It is the sign of my covenant with you and with all the earth. When I send clouds over the earth, the rainbow will appear in the clouds’
I think I got a bit too excited by this rainbow I saw on Saturday. I saw it on my way back to the hotel and when I went through reception I urged the bellman and the receptionists to go and look. They meandered outside but didn’t seem too impressed. The picture here is not doing it justice. The bellman saw the picture on my phone and said it was ‘okay’!
If we don’t know where the rainbow is from or who it came from then I suppose it’s easy to pass it by. But It was God. Staring at me. I was amazed. I always have been amazed by rainbows. Why? God is present all the time through all of his creation. But rainbows? They only come along occasionally and there are specifics about it in the bible. Think about it….all those colors joined together. And it’s shape. Like a bridge between us and God. Doesn’t it feel like something not of this earth? Because it’s a rarity? He said He would place a rainbow in the sky and here it is…proof. Real time. Not just a beautiful 200-year-old Oak tree that’s always been there but a 2013 rainbow from God. And that’s it. Of now. Like a text. look out 4 the rainbow 🙂He’s with us now. Look at the way the artist portrayed the people below. In awe. Not like the bellman. Look out for something from God today!
‘I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me.’
Getting to know God means having a relationship with him and not just believing in Him. I’m sure God has everything in common with us but, as human beings. it’s probably good to find something that allows you to see God or something that sparks up a conversation with Him. Perhaps your work is that? I think it is definitely mine. I’m blessed to have my work evolve around creation, light, form and beauty. All of which has come from God. When I see something I like, I try to credit and think of God. And thank him. When I have an idea (good or bad) I know it’s from God. But it’s really just a conversation starter for me. A reminder that He exists and is everywhere. And like any relationship, it grows stronger as you find more things to talk about and more in common. You may become more open to Him. So, God wants to connect with you! He has similar interests!
Pray with me
Heavenly Father, we know you long to have a relationship with us, we pray we can seek you and realize that you want us to talk to you about everything we do, like children do. Help us find those conversation starters – Amen!
