He’d been sitting out there for hours. We’d been sailing through the Inner Passage in Alaska for 13 days. On day 14, my husband disappeared onto the balcony with his binoculars and never came inside. I visited him a couple of times… with my winter coat on. I did not find the chill inviting, so I watched the view from the comfortable sofa inside our stateroom.
Just before lunch, he came inside looking for the camera. “I asked God for a rainbow,” he declared.
I looked outside. Although it was cold, there was not a cloud in the sky. Humph, I thought… a rainbow on a sunny day. This should be interesting.
“Lord, send my husband a rainbow,” my spirit breathed. I know he’s your favorite.
A couple of days later, I was sitting on the couch back at home when my husband emerged from his office. He’d just gotten off the phone — a call we had not expected to go well had gone decidedly in our favor. Daily, we had prayed for God to make a way and give us favor in a seemingly impossible situation.
Honestly, I was not surprised at all when my husband said, “She gave us a green flag.” After all, I had just finished uploading our Alaska pictures to Facebook.
The rainbow on the Alaskan sea smiled brilliantly back at me filling me with hope.
“He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed,
miracles that cannot be counted.”
Job 9:10, NIV
Q4U: Has God ever answered a seemingly impossible prayer request that you offered up in faith? I would love to hear your story!
