I ran along the beach, feet digging deep into the surf as the water rushed over my toes. "Where's MY promise?!?!?" I prayed, practically demanding out loud to God. I mean, I knew what my future looked like, the Holy Spirit had revealed a apart of his plan for Marshall and I in a vision for our life, but what was my promise for NOW? What direction should I be growing my business and spending my time NOW?
Time. That was a funny word, as God was teaching me it was "all in His time" and as we hear over and over again, His "timing is perfect". So, I ran on and resumed to wait it out.
That same night I joined my Prayer Team leaders for a one-on-one session of my own to clear out my past, receive inner healing and secretly *hope* for a prophetic word on my life (in present tense). And just as we got started it appeared. "Hey, look out the window" Pastor Pam said. "We never see those here: there's your promise", we both finished the sentence in unison on the word: promise. Pam had no idea as I stared out at the blindly vibrant double rainbow that I had been praying for a promise, and here it was in it's clearest form. The colorful arch that God consistently pops up to me when I need it most, calling me to raise my head and look above. A clear, confirming, beautiful rainbow. A promise. His promise. My promise. "Hear the Word, roaring as thunder
With a new, future to tell
For the dry, season is over
There is a cloud, beginning to swell
To the skies, heavy with blessing
Lift your eyes, offer your heart
Jesus Christ, opened the heavens
Now we receive, the Spirit of God
Every seed, buried in sorrow
You will call, forth in its time
You are Lord, Lord of the harvest
Calling our hope, now to arise
We receive Your rain.
Like a flood.
We receive your love." This is my promise. 🌈💓
