My wife and I had a wonderful time visiting with three dear friends in Kure Beach, NC recently. Our conversations ranged from the fun we had back in the good ole days to the current problems facing the world. You can rest well now—like most folks, we had solutions for every existing problem. Now, doesn’t that make you feel warm and fuzzy!?! The only thing lacking is the implementation of our well-thought-out solutions. That’s the easy part. Right?

Okay! Okay! You don’t believe me do you? Like most folks, you’re probably a “Doubting Thomas.” I understand how you feel—my name is Thomas, so you don’t have to explain! However, I have no doubt there is One who not only knows all of our problems; He also has the solutions and even knows how to implement them. He has the “Kure” for all problems no matter how large they are. Remember where we were—“Kure” Beach, NC. That no coincidence and should make you feel even better, but I bet you’re still dancing to DT’s music.

The reason I believe our little group was on the right track became apparent when we reached the end of one of our problem solving sessions. God painted the most vivid double rainbow I have ever seen. Every “ROYGBIV” color on God’s canvas was spectacular and remained visible for about fifteen minutes. The sight was breathtaking; we felt His presence as if He was acknowledging our efforts.

RainbowGenesis 9.16

This affirmation of His covenant to all living creatures of every kind on earth revealed itself in a very special way. His timing was perfect, as it always is. We felt blessed to have the opportunity to witness this beautiful display on His canvas in the sky.

The point of this post is to say God knows our individual struggles and the problems facing our nation. He will help, but He wants each of us to serve Him by being proactive and spreading His word as modern-day disciples. It is time to end our silence and start reversing the direction our non-Christian government leaders are taking. Let’s not sit back and wait for others to do something—let’s act and encourage others to follow. We are all capable of doing something to help, even small things. For me, I try to do it through my faith-based writing. It’s not much, but it’s what I do best. No matter how small you think your efforts are, do what works best for you, but do something—He will increase anything you do by tenfold.

I will also keep praying that God continues to bless America and hope you feel inspired to do the same. I know that With God, All Things Are Possible!


Genesis 9:16 (NIV)

“Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.”
