One of the ways God blesses me and brings a smile to my heart and face is through His rainbows–the sign of His promise. Sometimes I’m blessed to see beautiful rainbows in the sky, such as the time I was walking in our neighborhood, crying out to the Lord for a sign of hope regarding my disabled son. As I rounded the corner, I saw a brilliant rainbow shining over his house! Other times, little “rainbows” dance upon the kitchen cupboards or the bedroom door, as the sun reflects off the beveled glass windows, creating colorful prisms.
One day, as I was bustling around the house and praying about certain concerns, I suddenly saw some prism rainbows on the bedroom door. I stopped abruptly and just gazed at them. Tears sprung to my eyes and I dropped to my knees in thanksgiving. God washed away all my concerns and filled my soul with peace as His love washed over me. I watched until the rainbows grew pale, then I got up. An instant later, they were gone. If I had not stopped the moment I saw them, I would have missed out on a priceless experience.
Then a thought came to mind. I know (intellectually) that God loves me and is always with me, but how often do I slow down enough to let His love splash over me? He is continually blessing me, but many times His “rainbows” are invisible and I fail to recognize them because I’m either too busy or too stressed.
O precious Lord, please open the eyes of my heart to see your love touches throughout the day. May I stop long enough to allow Your precious love and peace to flood my soul. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
