And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come:   I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 
Genesis 9:12-13

Have you really thought about what the rainbow signifies?  I believe it is a promise from God to us that everything is going to be okay.  There was a time in my life when I was in a very dark place and I really didn't know which way to turn.  I felt that my life as I knew it was over and that I needed to move forward in a different direction.  I was alone in my car driving north and the weather was really bad.  I was driving along listening to my praise cd's, crying some and praying a lot.  I glanced out the passenger window and saw a rainbow and I didn't think much about it as it had either been raining or snowing and rainbows usually follow rain.  I took a second glance and there were now two beautiful rainbows.  Have you ever seen the end of a rainbow?  Well I did!  As I turned my attention back to the road in front of me there was the end of the rainbow.  As I drove through the rainbow my car was filled with all these brilliant colors and I felt God speaking to me, telling me that everything was going to be okay that he was in control and to place my trust in Him.  Now whenever I see a rainbow it reminds me of the promise God made personally to me.  Found this song and thought I would share the lyrics with you.

God put a rainbow in the sky
A rainbow in the sky
A rainbow in the sky
God put a rainbow in the sky
A rainbow in the sky
A rainbow in the sky
It looked like the sun wasn't
gon' shine no more
Oh, God put a rainbow in the sky
Rev. A. Jenkins

The rainbow of God's promises is always above the storms of life!
