Our God reigns! (Psalm 47:8) Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23
A devotional to encourage awareness of His faithfulness to His promises in everyday moments, coupled with resources to help share His love.
Maybe you are a mom, grandma, a great grandma, a woman that has kids walk past her home to school each day, a teacher with 30 littles to care for all week long, a babysitter or a bus driver… Maybe you are a woman that never really thought about how many young in the faith, or those that may not have The faith, actually cross your path each day.
A little R&R at the feet of Jesus and you will begin to see the R&R’s (“Reigning Rainbows”) God is still painting – in, through and with your life dear one… rainbows of faithful promise too special not to share!
But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. Matthew 13:16 (NIV)

A “rainbow” painted just for you: RAINBOW GAZING –When I see the rainbow in the clouds, I will remember the eternal covenant between God and every living creature on earth. Genesis 9:16
How romantic! How captivating to know that the Almighty God of the universe wants to share a rainbow gazing moment in time with YOU, dear one! In Hebrew the same term is used for both the word “rainbow” and “bow”. It’s like our Mighty Warrior hangs His bow in the sky to invite us to do the same… to hang up the “bow” we have been fighting life so hard with and just curl up in His lap to receive the peace, the energy, the rest, and restoration that only comes from the One who fights FOR you. Let Him enrapture your heart over the fleeting seconds a rainbow exists on the edge of a storm with the Truth’s that He is faithful; that the earth’s time and seasons are preserved and held in His powerful hand, there is no storm He can’t calm or take you walking on the raging waves of – safe and secure in His enduring love.
This week savor the fleeting seconds a “rainbow” exists… when you first open the dryer door – the rush of warm air reminds you of the warmth of His love (1 Peter 1:22 GWT)… wiggle your fingers and toes before getting out of bed – it’s a rainbow gifted moment from God Almighty that is not guaranteed at the end of that day (Philippians 2:13 NIV)… the “rainbow” of the 100th interruption because you are just that important (2 Timothy 3:17 NIV)… God is trying to catch your attention with His lavish love for you sweet girl, take time this week to notice His flirtations with your heart and praise Him as you rainbow gaze together.
