A rainbow is certainly beautiful. Every time I see one I’m enchanted, excited, captivated. Apart from the fact that it’s wonderfully unique in the sky, it’s rich with dazzling superb colours and has charming stories attached to it. That’s why as a child I always wanted to find the end of a rainbow. It’s where a pot of gold was supposedly hidden!
A rainbow can be inspiring. It can uplift one’s spirit and calm the soul. To me, a rainbow is a symbol of God’s eternal love. As someone who finds inspiration in the Bible, a rainbow reminds me that God is caring for me and everyone. It was the sign that Noah received after the flood, when he, his family, and all the creatures he took into his ark, were saved.
A rainbow is a symbol of hope. It can bring comfort and reassurance. Recently a woman emailed me that she had received some disturbing news about the health of a friend’s husband. Upset by the bad news, she felt the need to walk outside her house to try and find some sense of peace and calm. As she stepped onto her front verandah, the first thing she saw was a beautiful rainbow. It was right in line with her front door. Immediately she thought about God’s covenant with His people. God was loving and caring for her, her friend and her friend’s sick husband. Right away the woman’s thought changed. She felt settled. To her, the rainbow was an uplifting sign of hope and assurance.
Next time a rainbow appears in sky, take a moment to enjoy it’s breathtaking beauty, and remember that God loves and cares for you and yours.
