The Gleam of Hope

Is disappointment after disappointment the story of your life? Hoping to find your rainbow with a pot of gold is your dream.

Seeing the end of a rainbow is only make-believe.” No! It’s not.” Last summer, at the end of our driveway, was a rainbow. It ended about twenty feet in front of me. Wow! I thought I saw it and drove on. I didn’t stop. I didn’t take a picture with my phone. Now, I need help to prove what I just wrote.

For the record, alcohol was not in my blood, nor was any other mind-altering drug. What I witnessed was real. But there’s no documentation.

Trying to tell others about your dream might be like my rainbow tragedy. Your rainbow was right there before you, but you kept driving. You didn’t stop for the details of the opportunity of a lifetime. The pot of gold was there for you, but you didn’t stop.

If you are fortunate, there will be another opportunity. This time, stop. Realize what is before you, and take your time with the situation. Consider what the future may be for a while. Take a step forward and see a glimpse of what the Lord is doing, but keep on going and watching what’s happening. Are you crashing into closed doors? Is God opening something special for you?

Seeing the gleam of hope is your reward for your patience and stickability. So, by faith, put your hand on the door handle and open your door for the next adventure of your life.
