Hi Everyone! Did you see the full rainbow yesterday, ground to ground, with the second rainbow over it? Wow! Wow! Wow! My phone had died so I couldn't stop and take a picture like everyone else was doing when we were driving north on Chilicothe and saw the incredibly huge vibrant double rainbow. God is good! All the time! Be blessed and inspired by today’s Bible verse and story.
With love, Rev. Dr. Sandy Seaton-Todd
Bible Verse I John 4:16 "God is love. Whoever loves lives in God, and God lives in them."
Bible Story Luke 15:1-7 Parable of the Lost Sheep Jesus told the following story to people who were known for engaging publicly and openly in behavior that harms others. God is like a shepherd who has one hundred sheep and loses one who wanders away. The shepherd will leave the ninety-nine to look for the one sheep in order to find it. When the shepherd finds the lost sheep, the shepherd rejoices and carries it home.
Have you ever felt lost in life or been on the wrong track? God is always with us and wants to get us on a path that feels truly good deep down inside of us. But we do not always recognize or know God. When we are on the wrong path, God continues to try to get our attention like the shepherd looking for the lost sheep.
Have you ever experienced a coincidence? Albert Einstein said coincidences are God's way of remaining anonymous. I think a coincidence is a God incident. God is looking for us and wants us to let ourselves be found by God. When we do, God always welcomes us and rejoices. Nothing keeps God from loving us and wanting us to be with God.
