God's Rainbow

The falling rain dissolves into mist,
And the thunder begins to die.
As the sporadic lightening fades,
An arch of color pours from the sky.

Rainbows appear after mighty storms,
When things look their worst.
Just when the sky is darkest grey,
Out of Heaven does a rainbow burst.

God first sent the rainbow to Noah,
As a sign that His Word is true.
The rainbow’s eternal message,
Still speaks to me and you.

The rainbow is a sign of God's promise,
That He will guide us through any storm.
That He will ease all our troubles,
No matter what their form.

When you feel battered by life's storms,
And you are filled with doubt and dismay,
Just remember God's rainbow is coming,
For it's blessing you have only to pray.
