And there it was again sitting just a little above the Golden Gate Bridge, one of the signs and wonders that only the Creator of this universe can do – the third rainbow since I got here!
I am not trying to be sentimental or emotional about this trip. It’s just that when you’ve been through a long ‘rainy season’ in your life and you wonder whether the dreams of your heart will ever come to pass – Doubt creeps in; impatience overtakes you and your faith falters making you want to give it all up altogether. It seems as if, only the mighty hand of God could ever change the season you’re in. Therefore, you reach a place of surrender where quite painstakingly you admitted, “Let your will be done. Not mine but yours, Lord.”
Then suddenly, God shows up and tells you, “I set My rainbow in the cloud…It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you..”
It’s funny how I am more amazed to see a rainbow than to see Disneyland or Hollywood or all the other places that I’m supposed to see here in the US. It’s funny how my heart leaps with joy for simple signs and wonders such as these. It’s funny how God brought me here just to tell me that He’s not forgotten about me; that He remembers His promises to me; that He loves me and that no matter what I’ve done or where I’ve been, He will fulfill His promises because He is faithful.
It’s funny, yes, and I am extremely overwhelmed. I look forward to the days that are ahead of me, filled with hope because I know He’s already there – preparing something that no eye has seen, nor ears have heard nor mind has conceived – because I love Him and He loves me, more than I could ever think or imagine! 🙂
