I am going to start a series around the kingdom as I experience it everyday. The Kingdom of God is all around us, but we fail to see it or experience it bc we are so wrapped up in ourselves.
So here we are at Kingdom Pic #1
My first pics will probably be from my recent trip to Nicaragua. This one speaks loudly about the heart of the kingdom. I was standing on the edge of a soccer field where some of our guys were playing the locals in a pick-up game. The field was ligned with trash and many of the locals came out to view the Americanos attempt to play soccer. In the midst of the dirty roads, the sub-standard living conditions and poverty this rainbow appeared. In that moment I fealt the presence of God on tha soccer field. I forgot about the trash, heat and my desire for a Md's quarter pounder. I saw the wonder of God filling this valley on his children both Nicaraguan and American. Just a few moments later another rainbow appeared beside the first....just a confirmation of God's covenant to us....his people.
"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."
