Chasing Rainbows

December 22, 2010

Side-note: This post was started on 12/18…. then my computer decided to die… blargh. You may continue reading now 🙂

I drove home to Washington for Christmas break today. As I was driving there was about 15-20 minutes where it seemed like I was chasing this rainbow that was in front of me. It would be amazingly bright one moment, and the next it would face to almost nothing, yet it was still there the entire time if even just faintly. It made me smile and giggle a bit. Every time I see a rainbow I remember the promise that God made way back in the Old Testament about how He will never flood the earth again. Here in the great NW it rains all the time. But today I realized that no matter how much or how hard it rains it will always get better. The sun will always come back out. I really have no reason to much of a grump about rain anymore.

Anyway, I’m pretty sure that I’ve stated this is the past, but for good measure I’m going to say it again. Music speaks to me. I’m not 100% sure if God chooses to speak to me through music because he can or because He knows that’s what I pay attention, whatever His reason that’s what happens. All that to say that on top of my fun moment of chasing that rainbow, God really spoke to me through a fantastic Sanctus Real song, Whatever You’re Doing (Something Heavenly).

These last 6 months have been a bit rocky to say the least. I’ve been going through a great deal of healing and I’m still not back to myself even though I desire my healed self so badly. This song really spoke to that…

It’s time for healing, time to move on
It’s time to fix what’s been broken too long
Time to make right what has been wrong
It’s time to find my way to where I belong
There’s a wave that’s crashing over me
And all I can do is surrender

Whatever You’re doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but somehow there’s peace
It’s hard to surrender to what I can’t see
But I’m giving in to something Heavenly

Time for a milestone, time to begin again
Re-evaluate who I really am
Am I doing everything to follow Your will
Or just climbing aimlessly over these hills?
So show me what it is You want from me
I give everything, I surrender

To whatever You’re doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but somehow there’s peace
And though it’s hard to surrender to what I can’t see
I’m giving in to something Heavenly, something Heavenly

Time to face up, clean this old house
Time to breathe in and let everything out
That I wanted to say for so many years
Time to release all my held back tears

Whatever You’re doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but I believe
You’re up to something bigger than me
Larger than life, something Heavenly

Whatever You’re doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but now I can see
This is something bigger than me
Larger than life, something Heavenly, something Heavenly

It’s time to face up, clean this old house
Time to breathe in and let everything out

I’m going through a rainy storm…. but I know that there will be a rainbow eventually. God, you’re welcome to bring that rainbow along anytime now. Love you! Thanks!
