From Daily Email of Cana 90 – Day 23
Somewhere Over the Rainbow
God said: This is the sign of the covenant that I am making between me and you and every living creature with you for all ages to come: I set my bow in the clouds to serve as a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
~ Genesis 9:12-13
A lot has happened since we left Noah, his wife, his sons’ their wives and the animals; many days of rain, then days of no rain, the a long time of waiting for the water to receded, and finally the sending of ravens & doves.
Noah didn’t waver in his pursuit of what God’s call for him. Even though it may have not played out like he thought, he knew God would remain faithful. Then, God gives the rainbow as a sign of his covenant.
We have rainbows in our marriages and families. What are yours? What is your tangible reminder of your love for your spouse and your spouse’s love for you?
When the floods are raging, when the dove comes back with nothing what do you have set-up in your lives to point you back to the covenant of your marriage?
In Irish mythology there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Would a pot of gold change your life? We need to believe that these “rainbows” in our marriage have even greater power to change our life.
What are the times when you have “sent our ravens or doves” and got nothing back? How can you communicate with and trust God and your spouse? Family Activities:
