Sunrises and Rainbows
I was out early this morning and got to see not only the sunrise (which I never view) but also a HUGE (big, fat, juicy!) rainbow over the city. Absolutely gorgeous!
I was struck by how I normally only get to see the “EFFECTS” of the sunrise ~ I am usually getting ready for work or church in the mornings, and I watch the outside get lighter and lighter from the window of the upstairs bathroom. But today? I got to the see the sunrise, ITSELF! Gloriously bright and multi-hued (bright oranges, pinks, purples, and eventually yellow and light blue) as it climbed up over a somewhat overcast and rainy sky, just enough clearing in the clouds to see the violent fireball blazing at the center….
I could not help but see there was a parable, here ~
How much more glorious! to see and know the REAL THING (God), than only be satisfied with just the “effects” (his good works, the “salt and light” effect in the world).
To follow that up with the rainbow was yet another reminder that God keeps his promises! What a great way to start the week!
Happy Monday to all!
