As I was getting up at 6:00 in the morning, I just noticed a rainbow light that was reflected from the window. Bright sunlight flowed through, and hit a mirror in my room and reflected on my bed with rainbow colors. It probably was there before, but I never noticed it until today. I cannot describe the beauty of it. I took a picture of it for me to remember. As I opened my manuscript for the next week, I noticed that it was about the covenant of God, the rainbow. When we know God, who is the Creator, is with us intimately, we become calm. In Isaiah 30:15, it says “in the quietness and trust is your strength.” When God delivered Israel from Egypt, the last plague was the most powerful plague. It happened during a quiet moment when every creature was in deep sleep in the middle of the dark night. God did not even use Moses that night. Only people who put the blood of a lamb survived.
"When God allowed my sorrow and pain to bring me to the cross, I quietly knelt in his presence. I could not ask the reason for my sorrow and suffering. There were no words before him. I met God who said that he loves me even to death. Heaven is closer to me now than ever before. My son's death connected me with the reality of death and sin, and led me closer to my only hope, Jesus Christ. Now, I have hope, not a wish, that I am forgiven and will see Jesus and my son some day at a beautiful place where there is no more pain, no more tears and no more fear."
'Hope' is not a wish, but a reality of the future, for which I am waiting with full of anticipation.
