Encouraging Moments, 6
You Gave Me A Rainbow
Lord, I awoke this morning and saw the blue sky and the sun shining.
Thank You for the joy of the blue sky and the warmth of the sun.
The blue sky in my life is so peaceful.
The warmth of the sun is like the blanket of love You place around me.
Your love, Your embrace, is my security blanket.
As the sun touches me, so do You touch me and You awaken my whole being, Lord.
You made the green trees and green grass.
Thank You for the softness and the gentleness of the color green.
You are a mighty God, yet like the color green,
You are soft and gentle.
Lord, You made the mountains, rivers, and streams for me to enjoy.
How I thank You for all the beauty of nature!
You provide for me.
You are great like the mountains, powerful like the waterfall, and sometimes rough like the rivers as You polish me like gold in a fire.
But then, You are so gentle like a stream with Your love and compassion for me.
Lord, life can never be just blue skies and sunshine.
There are times when there are gray skies, rain, and storms.
The gray skies are there to remind me that I am a sinner.
The rain that falls upon me reminds me of You, Lord, as you forgave me
and washed away my sins. There are times when there are storms in my life.
The terrible storms, how they hurt. There are times when I come before you so broken with my heart opened wide.
You’re always there to take my heart in Your loving hands and kiss it and tell me of Your great love.
You’re always there to calm the storm in my life and to give me a blue sky and sunshine again.
Lord, after the storm, You give me a rainbow— a bridge for me to walk on to be with You for all time.

I love the Lord, because He hears me; He listens to my prayers. He listens to me every time I call to Him. The danger of death was all around me; the horrors of the grave closed in on me; I was filled with fear and anxiety.Then I called to the Lord, “I beg you, Lord, save me!” The Lord is merciful and good; our God is compassionate. The Lord protects the helpless; when I was in danger, he saved me. Be confident, my heart, because the Lord has been good to me. The Lord saved me from death; he stopped my tears and kept me from defeat. And so I walk in the presence of the Lord in the world of the living.I kept on believing, even when I said, “I am completely crushed,” even when I was afraid and said, “No one can be trusted.” What can I offer the Lord for all his goodness to me? I will bring a wine offering to the Lord, to thank him for saving me.In the assembly of all his people I will give him what I have promised. How painful it is to the Lord when one of his people dies! I am your servant, Lord; I serve you just as my mother did. You have saved me from death. I will give you a sacrifice of thanksgiving and offer my prayer to you.
