This morning after I dropped my son off at school, I saw a portion of a rainbow. The only parts I could see clearly were the two ends.The middle portion was hidden by the rain clouds.
The words I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end came to mind immediately.
Colorful bookends of hope.
That’s all we really need to understand, isn’t it Lord? There are a lot of unanswered questions, doubts and struggles that seem to gather in that cloudy space in between, but those two bright colorful ends are the hope of the world.
