"I set my bow in the clouds and it shall be a sign of my covenant between me and the earth." Genesis 9:13
My heart was growing cold like the winter weather. I saw heartache and pain all around me and there was no comfort to be found, not even in the House of God. The tears spilling down my frozen face were the only warmth I could feel.
Then, the weather took a strange turn. The sky was brilliant blue and clear behind me, but in front of me, snow showered from above. The sun was working to burn the snow away; I could see a faint glimmer of it shining behind the clouds. Then, right in front of my eyes, a miracle occurred! There before me, a bright-colored rainbow appeared in the snowy sky!
Every rainbow is a sign from God. It is his beautiful way of telling us that He loves us, all of us, and He will always love us. His covenant with the earth from the beginning of time has always been a covenant of love. What greater comfort could I have been looking for? God's sign of love for me in His beautiful winter rainbow has warmed my heart, and I pray that it will keep my heart warm forever.
