That was one of my 3rd grade student question on our Science class. Are you wondering about it? Or been amazed by this wonder of creation also? The nature has its answers in every changes and movement it occurs. The creator has planned wonderfully everything around us. What’s the connection of the Rainbow appearance to our very own life? What’s the impact of this process to us? Can we relate our very own life’s situation with it? Can we be like a 3rd grade student wondering how does it appears and changes our life?
Why does Rainbow appears only after the Rain? When it rain , the air in the atmosphere above will be filled with raindrops. These raindrops continue to turn to tiny water droplets. After the rain, the sun shows up and when the rays of light from the sun hits the water droplets rainbows appears. The sunlight when it enters the droplets of water it separate into different colors. The water droplets serve as a prism or a glass for the sunlight to reflect with. The light bended and bounced back that made rainbow possible. For my students lesson these are the process of Reflection and Refraction of light.
What is rain for? Heavy rain brought problems for some who are not ready for it and in no capacity to receive the great impact a storm or heavy rain caused. Possible result is advantage for everyone and everything in nature. Green surrounding is great when it rain. Rain sometimes soothe ones feeling, and allows you to take a halt to rest from a days work.
What’s the impact to us of the rainbow appearing after rain? In life, we all experience the good and the bad effects of rain. There might be different struggles and sorrows it brings to all. Problems, sickness, hardships, distress,misfortune whatever it is , these adversities can be likened to a great storm, hurricane, typhoons in your life. The good thing is after all of these hope still prevails, like a rainbow that appears wonderfully after the rain. We all needed the rain for through it we all reminded of God’s faithfulness. 2 Samuel 23:4 “…He is like the light of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning, like the brightness after rain that brings grass from the earth.” After the storm of life the Lord allows the brightness of the rainbow after the rain and made the grass , plants grow and bloom. Your tears will serve as the prism that reflects the sunlight and brings different colors in your life. Through that tears your life will bloom after all. There can be no rainbows as hope in your life, if there’s no tears as raindrops in the atmosphere.
The Lord is very mindful of everything that’s happening in your life. He sees every details of your tears as rain and hears every cries of your heart as thunder that strongly roars. With that, God creates the rainbow, so that after all you’ve been through you will still shine and grow stronger. In life, we need the rain to remind us of God’s faithfulness and expect for rainbows as God’s promises. Be always ready to face any forms of rain in your life. There can be no rainbows when there is no rain. There is bright, colorful and fruitful life after the rain. Remember, He has created everything even the rain and rainbows for you. Enjoy while in the rain. (MRCE)
In life, people live differently with each other but all been given the same. There are less fortunate and the well off individuals. Whatever reasons behind their status in life, still all experience the gift of life. The goodness of the great Creator never misses anyone. It’s very clear around us and very obvious to ignore. How can you not see His goodness?
What made you refuse to see it? No one can appreciate something if the heart is lacking of good things. If your life is full of negatives, sorrow, mischief, confusions and chaos, what you see will also be the same. These will make you miss seeing the good thing life could offer. There are things out of your control: why settle for less when He has offered you the best things in life? What control and prevent you from recognizing his goodness? Romans 2:4 “…or despise thou the riches of His goodness and forbearance and long-suffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance.” When sin covers your heart, it controls your reasons and even your vision. It would be easy then for one to despise the riches of His goodness, because sin made you to refuse seeing God’s goodness. Sin, your sorrow, your adversity and unfortunate events in your life blinded you to see the greatness of God. But the continued and everlasting goodness of the lord leads everyone to repentance. Accept and repent for Him to open the eyes of your heart.
Why it can’t be hidden? The Creator had perfectly created the universe . You are beautifully and wonderfully made. Your life is the mirror of the goodness of His creation. Your outside bad circumstances and experiences are nothing compared to what the Lord has imparted in you. It can’t destroy and change your value to Him. Psalms 33:5 “… the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.” Everything around you display the marvelous works, which should not be marred by your inward condition. The nature display the creative hands of the Master. The different animals that you bother not to feed prove His caring hands. Remember, when it’s good you cannot hide, but whenever it’s defiled it is very visible.
Why so silent in praising Him? Rev. 5:12 “In a loud voice they were saying: ‘worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise.’ ” Don’t silent your heart if you are grateful, for His goodness to keep flowing in you. For if you will not, a lot of His creations will do. Worship Him and give glory to His name! Life and everything around you are so beautiful and wonderful. (MRCE)
The world has so much to offer to anyone. Things and people are there to offer ways to enjoy your days. But always it is not for free, nothing is entirely free in this world. Could you go on with this kind of thing? What if complete bankruptcy envelopes you? Total loss, disaster and exhaustion that lead to have nothing at all. Could this ruin your life? Could this take your happiness away from you?
What do you have that control your happiness? You might have the money, that could satisfy your needs and wants. You might be surrounded by prominent people that boost your ego and honor. A desirable job and luxuries in life. Are all these control your life? These things control your happiness in your own perspective. Your happiness should not be dependent to any solid things. Happiness must be within you, imparted by a Greater One inside you. Don’t be deceive in this world… “Matthew 4:9….All these things will I give thee, if thou will fall down and worship me.” That verse tells of how the things in this world was used to tempt Jesus. With His example you too can flee away from the temporary happiness this world has to offer. Just make it sure to have Jesus in your heart when you have nothing or else it will be a disaster to you.
Would you give up everything for Jesus? Are you willing to give up these things that control your happiness? You can have these things but they should not be the reason why you’re alive and happy or else you will miss the very thing of eternal happiness. Philippians 4:12 ” I know both how to have nothing and how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.” A wise man knows how to face life with full and empty hands for His happiness does not defend on how much he holds in his hands. Like Paul learn to have nothing. These things will pass away from you. You came empty to the world and you will leave nothing as well. Acceptance of having nothing to rely on in this world prepares your heart to a real happiness. Acceptance to your current situation and contentment to what you already have. For when you have nothing the Lord has more to do in your life.
To have nothing to defend on this world is to allow your faith to be active. The more you will consider these things as just nothing the more you will be bless. Mark 8:36 “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” Jesus is more than enough. When you feel you are in need and have nothing, renew your love and commitment to Him. Your current relationship with Jesus affects your living situation. The real joy is not in the things in this world, don’t put your heart on them. Consider yourself to have nothing in possession to this world, Jesus is your greatest happiness. Learn to have nothing for Him to do more in your life……..MRCE
In life there are things you need to get rid of in order to move on. There are those you need to sacrifice for life to keep going. To empty your life with these is to unload the baggage in your heart. But does emptying your heart helps in uplifting your life?
How does emptying process happen in your life? To empty is to remove the contents, take out, pour out, unload and drain out your heart. You must learn to feel your heart until it overflows. Psalms 139:23…” Search me Oh God and know my heart: try me and know my thoughts.” Allowing the Lord to search your heart means surrendering all that is taking place in your life. Once you have pour out your heart to Him, He will remove the cause of your pains. When your heart is empty His love will fill in. Unload your heart to Him and let Him start cleansing it. This is necessary to bring back your life on track again. He’ll Uplift! what has been fallen in you.
Will it be necessary to empty your heart? Man’s heart is so vulnerable, and easily broken. Psalms 73:26… “My flesh and my heart fail: but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” No one is exempt to feel the pain but the cure is to face it until you’re ready to unload your heart. Until you feel the emptiness He cannot fill you in. He can’t control your life and so you need to empty yourself in the throne of your heart. Empty your heart for all selfishness for Him to fully fulfill the wonderful plans in your life.
What happens after emptying your heart? When you emptied your heart for the Master’s control, you will be uplifted. Uplift means being cheered, inspired, revive, cleansed, renewed and leveled up. Be empty of yourself but more of Him in your heart. Ezekiel 36:26….”A new heart also will I give you and a new spirit will I put within you; and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh and I will give you a heart of flesh.” He alone can change and cleanse your heart to be a better you. A new heart that knows the pain yet easily forgives. A heart that breaks with the things that break His heart. A heart that seeks to glorify Him.
Whatever you allowed to just fall in your life is not hidden in His eyes. Let it fall until you’re empty. Emptying yourself is allowing The Lord to work fully in you. Get rid of those things that will break your heart; unload your heart and feel the pain no more. After all, He will brighten your life. Be uplifted by your Creator for you to uplift others. When you pass through all these stand up and be a witness for Him to be known…………MRCE
Life may seems unfair and convenient to others, but whatever it has to brings , everyone are searching for a better life. The search may lead to confusions with things and people around us. We are searching for better answers for the things we don’t want to happen in us. This is out of our control, even if how hard we tried still we can’t comprehend all the answers. It all come back to the ONE up there, Who is the Maker of our life. Understanding Him will best answer the search. There are three things that will affect us once we understand Jesus’s heart.
Note: The Image of Jesus was from the book “Heaven is Real”
2. UNDERSTANDING with a DESIRE to FOLLOW. Having a heart that is holy, harmless, and undefiled is a more than desirable to mankind. If one desires to have a lasting peace and blessed life while in the world just follow his examples. A determination to follow his footsteps is an awesome effect as you know him deeper. Desiring His heart to manifest in us will result to a better world to live by. As you grow to know Him daily your desire to be like Him grow stronger because your love for Him increases everyday. You can’t understand Jesus if you don’t love Him enough to give your heart completely to Him. You can’t follow His examples unless He controls your life. Give your heart to Him and He will put the desires in your heart to follow Him. Let Him be your Savior and He will make Himself known to you.
3. UNDERSTANDING with EXPECTATIONS. Knowing who Jesus is and digesting the nature of his being will open His working in us. Acts 10:38 ” …God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: Who went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with Him.” The effects of healing, blessings, and other good things will come in us because of Jesus. Expect something good will happen, if you understand with believing in your heart. Miracles happen to those who desires and strives to have a heart like him. When one gets closer to Jesus, heaven’s mercy and grace will be open for you. There will be no pain and sorrows that will not be felt, no sickness that is not healed and no prayers that will not be heard. Expect more from Him while you know Him more.
The heart of Jesus is not hard to understand. Until you will feel an awe to His Lordship you will never feel the need to understand Him more. Believe who He really is as you follow him, understand with desire to be like Him and understand while allowing and expecting Him to work in your life. Achieving these three will be the greatest effects ever happen to anyone………….MRCE
Heart is Life. Accept it or not life is determined by the nature of ones heart. Sometimes people tend to just cover ups what they feel, but the outside impact of the heart is visible. No one can control what the heart wants to convey, maybe for the meantime one can, but not for rest of ones life.
Three things to help us understand and listen to the messages of our own heart .
Understand your heart by knowing what is in abundance that you treasure in there. The motives of your heart will reflect the output of it. Whatever the things that controls your heart your mouth will speak of it. What is inside you will be known by what is coming out of you.If your heart is full of hatred, all bitterness in life is seen in you, but if your heart is full of joy then love is visible in everything you do. So then be responsible in maintaining the goodness of your heart. Always remember to give a place of the CREATOR in your heart, give Him a chance to control and cleanse it so that you will be assured to have a good and clean heart. For He can give you a good things to treasure in your heart to bring out that which is good.
Understand your heart physically, it is intended also for someone and most of all understand the real condition inside your heart. No one can listen to your heart’s plea but only you. Listen and Understand it with the CREATOR’s help…………….MRcE
