This has been one crazy year. If you’ve got a pulse, you’ve probably felt the same. I was getting ready for my first day of a new job this morning…battling the typical nervous jitters. My mind spiraled into thoughts of what we’re going through and what others who I love are going through. I started praying very honest prayers and kept repeating to myself, “You are with me. I can be confident, no matter the circumstances. You are with me, You will never leave me.” You see, I’m working on training my brain to remember these truths, because without them, I’ll crumble.
I walked out the front door and was met by a wonderful, cool Autumn breeze. It forced me to look up to the sky in wonderment of what this day was going to hold. Across a dark morning sky, end to end, stretched an amazingly vibrant, perfect rainbow. A promise. It was as if I was the only person on the planet looking up at the sky in that moment and the Creator of the Universe was saying back to me, “Yes, I am with you. You can be confident, no matter the circumstances. Yes, I am with you, I will never leave you.”
I caught my breath that couldn’t help but be taken away…winked back at my Abba, Father…and went on my way with a heart overflowing.
