29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

A sudden reminder of a rainbow brings hope
Genesis 9:12-16 New International Version (NIV)
And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: 13 I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.14 Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, 15 I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. 16 Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.”

Generations to come, God continues to answer
When I see a rainbow, I remember God's promises. A sign that holds true to generations to generations. His power remains true and everlasting. It is life that changes us inside. Some hard stuff happens and our lives go down side roads of life. What happen to the plans I made and here I am now? I heard this from someone and I want to share that we all go down roads of change. Some of our plans do not work out and others things become better. It is the in between stages of life that make the difference. Will you keep holding tight to God through life and allowing him the freedom to guide your life? I have made some hard decisions in life that were not easy but I knew was right.
Somewhere over the rainbow song but hope to us. God is really there and who else can pain such a beautiful combination of colors in the sky? God is able to created and able to keep us safe in his presence. Today, take a few minutes to count some blessings of where you are in life. Look around you see the people who continue to be there for you, spur you on and say kind words. I did that yesterday and I was so blessed by words of others. I saw myself through eyes of others and it was a good thing. It is nice to hear kind words whether we admit that or not. I hope my words today spurs you on to seeing yourself the way God does. Let him use your life and shine fro him.
Purpose this a good day. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
