I just returned from one of the most powerful weekends of my life. Since I was a child, I have been speaking to imaginary audiences and dreamed of writing a book. I spent almost a year looking forward to this women’s retreat and the entire summer (and then some) writing my book.
The morning of one of my biggest days ever (I was speaking 3 times as well as playing piano and sitting on a discussion panel), I awoke to this incredible sight: a huge rainbow. The rainbow is God’s promise. Jeremiah 29:11 11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." God’s promise for me was fulfilled this weekend and I believe it will be fulfilled for all of us.
At the end of this rainbow is my friend, Phyllis. She loves the Lord with all her heart and she has loved me, too. Her unselfishness made my dreams a reality. God so often fulfills His promises to us through His people. May you find your joy at the end of the rainbow, too. And by the way, you can now search inside my book on Amazon.com.
