The Brightness of God's Grace

God’s grace is abundantly evident
In the dawning of each new day
As the sunrise brightens the morning sky,
Chasing the darkness away.
 As sunlight breaks through gathering clouds,
Streaming down rays from above,
The world is brightened as are our hearts
When touched by God’s grace and love.
 When storms of life darken your day
God offers a safe, protected place,
And like a rainbow after the rain
Shines the bright promise of hope and grace.

Oh, Connie. A rainbow. God and I have a long, beautiful history involving rainbows. He knew I needed the promise represented by this symbol and He used you to deliver it when I needed it the most. Thank you for being His messenger today.
