Whimsy Wednesday :: He Will Bring You Through it.




.
For this week's challenge, I ended up with two images...partly because the opportunity arose to capture two beautiful shots...and partly because I think I doubly needed this quote!!  After last week's not so wonderful news, this quote played constantly in my mind.  Isn't it amazing how God will place these personal touches in our lives??


Anyone else encouraged by these words this week?


Both shots came on the same evening.  A stormy one.  Dark, ominous clouds dominated the sky, like a bully, lumbering across in no particular hurry to be gone.  They offered up the occasional shower, soaking the earth and once again, watering my gardens for me.  I kept looking out, waiting to see if we would be able to watch our nightly show of painted sky and setting sun.  I almost gave up as I watch the swirling clouds moving across the valley, but as the sun made it's nightly decent, it escaped the darkness and bust forth in rays of golden joy!


And instantly this weeks challenge quote came to mind!  I grabbed the camera and headed out into the spattering of rain, looking North and waiting.  And there, before my eyes, the rainbow appeared.  I knew it would, the conditions were right, His conditions....His promises...always right...right there...if you wait.


Dave and I watched, together, as His bow arched across the sky.  We stood, silently, for sometime, taking in the beauty and majesty that was right in front of us and marvelling at His handy work!





.
Yes, God brings many challenges and trial into our paths but He will carry us through them, every step - all we have to do, is wait on Him, trust in Him and watch Him work for our good...it's not always easy but, like the storm that rolled through the other night...the end is glorious!





Next week's text:


If we wait until we're ready,
we'll be waiting for 
the rest of our lives.

  1. Kaitlin - your words and photos are beautiful. I love how you draw in with your story. I was standing out there in the field with you - watching and waiting... and you're right the end is always glorious. Sometimes - never the way we always expect.

    God is good. I love this upcoming text.

  3. Beautiful! Loris and I were watching too, but here it was a magnificent double rainbow. As I was reading your post the verse came to mind, "those that wait upon the Lord shall gain new strength..." A comfort to know that even regardless of circumstances or how things may play out, He promises strength as we look to Him...and comfort...and peace...and so much more. He is good!
