I just woke up that morning feeling discouraged.
I felt lonely after moving from town out to camp for the summer.
I felt isolated from my husband because he was working so much.
I wanted my body to do things right for a change, but thanks to PCOS, that doesn’t happen often.
I just felt frustrated and discouraged.
So while driving on some errands that afternoon, I asked God, Please, somehow, remind me of Your love and care for me.
It was a long drive back home, and it was raining, but about halfway there, the sun bravely peeked its face through the rain clouds, and suddenly, there was brilliant, blinding sunshine right alongside the pouring rain.
It was beautiful.
When I was almost home, just easing the truck slowly over the bumps and potholes of my long driveway, I rounded a corner and there, straight ahead, was a rainbow.
A full rainbow.
And because of where I was – in the middle of the long, bumpy drive into camp property – I was the only one around. The only one seeing this beauty.
It was just for me. It was God’s answer to my desperate prayer for a reminder of His care.
Joy bubbled up and over. I laughed. I marveled. I thanked Him.
Friends, He never stops being good and He never stops loving you, no matter how discouraging a day, week, or year you’ve had. Let this rainbow be a reminder of that.
