Promise.

I was having a hopeless morning the other day. This drought is trying it's best to get to me. Plus a few other things.

It was hard.

***************

I went for a short walk to pray. God said I needed patience, and to not always predict how He would keep his promises, just that He would.

I felt a little better.

***************

In an effort to beat the heat, we went to see Ice Age 30 minutes away from my parent's home.

When we exited the theater, rain drops were falling. Just a few, but it made me smile. The cloud formed and stayed a little bit ahead of us on the drive home. We could see streaks of rain...somebody was getting rain. That was good.

In the middle of our conversation, I said to my mom, "That is one of God's promises. We will prosper in what we put our hands to." Not even a minute later, there was a rainbow in the cloud. First one end of the arch, then the other, and then a double. All the way home the children oohed and ahhed over such a beautiful rainbow. When we got home, this was all that was left.


We didn't get rain that night. We got something better- a reminder of God's promises.
Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD. For he shall be like a tree planted by the water, which spreads out its roots by the river, and will not fear when heat comes; But it's leaf will be green, and will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will it cease from yielding fruit.  -Jeremiah 17:7-8
