Tokens


rainbow*


Rainbows remind me of God’s promises.

God knew before yesterday even began that He was planning a double rainbow for us. First thing in the morning, He reminded me that rainbows are a key element of my history with him. And He has provided these colorful displays at key times in my life. So when He mentioned rainbows yesterday morning, I started remembering those moments. 

We had a stormy day. I’d been waiting for the right combination of sunshine and moist air, but most of the day we either had downpours from dark skies, or sunshine. Even hail. 

Then, late in the afternoon, the skies began to lighten. The rains had just tapered off. We had a few minutes left before the sun slipped over the horizon when a rainbow could occur. And it happened! The arc grew in brilliance and was joined by another. A double rainbow reminding me of both God’s words that morning and also His promises throughout my life. 

What a gift. And with that, He draws me ever closer.

What kind of love tokens has God given you lately?
