It was one of the most poignant things I’ve ever experienced in my life.
God never promises for everything to make sense. He’s God and we’re not. But He promises that He loves us and will always take care of us. And what did God decide to use show this promise (also known as his COVENANT!!) to his people? A rainbow!
Barnes’ post was paired with some beautiful pictures of a vibrant, stunning double rainbow just outside Covenant Presbyterian church.
Even seeing the photos of these gorgeous rainbows is a breathtaking experience, knowing the time and place at which they appeared, as well as to whom—the members of a grieving community—they appeared.
When bad things happen, we rarely understand why, and we often wonder where God is. The Covenant community got an answer last week when they gathered again for chapel: God is in the midst of the hard things, right with us.
