Speechless Sunday #7

I can't even begin to count how many breathtaking rainbows we have had lately. I realize it has been a rainy tropical paradise the past couple weeks, but these beautiful gifts from the Lord illustrate He is listening, and is with us. I literally gasp when I see His promise in the sky, and my iPhone just doesn't give it justice. We have literally been in the rainbow and I feel so blessed to be surrounded by so much beauty in this very uncomfortable and insecure time.

One of many!!
It's been a tough couple weeks, and I appreciate the love, support, and continued prayer from everyone! I realize I have been vague as to what exactly is going on, but that is partly because I don't even really know what's going either! I also find it hard to write and publish the possibilities, and don't want to hypothesize anyway! I hope to report ecstatically good news soon -- until then, we pray! And boy do we pray. My family and I strongly believe in the power of prayer, and we definitely believe in Jesus' healing miracles and have faith in His will. We want Him to flex His healing muscles and glorify His name!  



While I am eager for answers to questions, I know everything is on His time, not my time. So I surrender it all, and walk by faith.

"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you. For I am the Lord your God." Isaiah 43:2–3 NASB

With God—chance is eliminated. God knows what is best. No struggle will come your way apart from His purpose, His presence, and His permission.

Isaiah 43:2 says, “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you and through the rivers, they will not overflow you.”

What encouragement! You are never the victim of nature or the prey of fate. Chance is eliminated. You are more than a weather vane whipped about by the winds of fortune. Would God truly abandon you to the whims of drug-crazed thieves, greedy corporate raiders, or evil leaders? Perish the thought!

You live beneath the protective palm of a sovereign King who superintends every circumstance of your life, and delights in doing you good.

Remember this. Nothing comes your way that has not first passed through the filter of God’s love.

Absolutely gorgeous! We have been seeing a lot of rainbows here too and I am embarrassed to say that until I red this post, I had forgotten the true meaning of a rainbow. Words cannot express my gratitude to you that I read your words today! Thank you!

Your button is lovely! I like Speechless Sundays....awesome stuff!

You're in my thoughts as well!
