God's Promises

Friday, September 10, 2010

Yesterday, we were picking tomatoes from the garden--a freeze was predicted for that night.
I was questioning myself.
Which tomatoes should I pick???
Can we still cover the plants and leave some of the tomatoes out a little longer?
I was getting kind of anxious.
We hadn't gotten as many tomatoes as we hoped.
I was feeling that our harvest would be short.

Before I knew it, we began to have sun showers.

It was beautiful.

Then we saw this beautiful rainbow.

God reminded me of all of His promises.

For all the promises of God in him [are] yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us. 
2 Corinthians 1:20

My heart rejoiced!!!

How wonderful God is!!!

But, He wasn't done.
He decided to show us a double rainbow
(We get those often here)

 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 
 2 Peter 1:4

Hi Stacie. Thanks for stopping by. God knows exactly what we need for that moment. And then we can take those gems and store them away for much needed encouragement during times that we especially need them. A couple of weeks after that, we were outside and the rainbow was on the verge of a triple bow and beneath it, there was steps going in the other direction. It is hard to describe. It was spectacular--words can't explain. And, it was just when we needed it. God's promises are truly "yea, and in Him Amen. God Bless.
