A Well-Timed Rainbow

On August 2, 2020, God put this rainbow in the sky over Chicago’s Lake Michigan.

Also on the weekend of August 2, 2020, 34 Chicagoans were shot, 9 fatally, one of whom was a 9 year old boy.*

God notices the violence in Chicago, just He noticed it in the days of Noah.

But God has said, “When I see the rainbow in the clouds, I will remember my covenant with you. Never again will floodwaters destroy all life (from Genesis 9:15-16).”

Remembering God’s promise, we pray.

Chicago During Covid-19 #18

I passed bright green bushes and pale purple pansies on my walk to the store.IMG_2407

I savored sweet smelling lilacs.IMG_2409

But the grocery store, a few steps beyond these flowers, was boarded up and closed.

If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land (2 Chronicles 7:14).
