The Rainbow


Psalm: 19-1-4- The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. NIV

As we chatted on the phone, my sister told me about a spectacular rainbow she had seen the other day. It was huge and was in the field right alongside the road where she was driving. She said that she could see both ends of the arc and that the colors were so vivid she could do nothing but stare in awe.

At the same time, just a short distance away running parallel to the secondary road that she was travelling on, hundreds of vehicles were barreling along a major highway oblivious to the marvelous sight just a few hundred feet away.

As she recounted this story to me, I could not help but think of how so often I too, much like the highway drivers, succumb to what I term as tunnel vision. I become so engrossed in my own life, my own problems, my own desires and thoughts; I am so busy barreling dead ahead at top speed that I miss the glory of Godís loving presence right here beside me.

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.

According to Ps 19-1-4 the rainbow of Godís presence surrounds us constantly. So today, as each of us travels along our own highway of life, going about our daily chores and jobs as is only right and good let us seek to not only be conscious of our own personal world but also of the created world which declares the glory of God and the splendour of His everlasting presence with us. Letís endeavour this day to not miss the rainbow!

Prayer: Father God thank you for the created world that declares your glory and proclaims the work of your hands. Help us this day to look up and see the splendour of your presence with us amidst the ordinariness of the daily tasks at hand. In Christís name we pray. Amen.
