I took this photo last year, looking out on my porch, over my sister-on-law’s house. I love the way that the sun is shining on the trees further out, as if to emphasize the light that is hiding behind the darkness.
A rainbow always makes me think of God and His promises. How He is true to his Word. Always. He is incapable of lying. I always stop and thank Him when I see this beautiful arc of colors stretching across the sky.
Not only are rainbows reminders of His promise, but they are also reminders of life. You can be sitting in the darkness of your life and look out to see that sunshine just out of reach. But the colors of the rainbow, sparkling in the mist, is not drawing a line separating us from that Light. It is the path to lead us to it. When we follow His Promises and His Word, we will be led to the Light. Then all of your problems seem so small in comparison.
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering, (for he is faithful that promised;)
