Thoughts from a friend. Absolutely had to share.
“DISCLAIMER: I USE LOL AND HAHAHA A LOT BECAUSE I LIKE TO LAUGH
Everyone who reads this article may laugh at me. I don’t blame you I would laugh at me, too.
Recently I have been feeling strongly-some type of way, on how people have changed the meaning of the rainbow. I have always been into colors. They are a very important part of my life, because I believe a person’s fave color gives you insight to their personality. I personally dream in color and every color has some special symbolism. I am in no way an expert about color and personality. I am simply stating my feelings based on limited knowledge.
You have the bright bolds, you have the soft pastels, then there are the earth-tones and the metallic, and probably more, but those are the only ones I know about LOL and love them all. It is basic information red, yellow, and blue are the primary colors and the mixtures of those produces orange, purple, and green. When learning about the color spectrum and light we learned the acronym roy g biv (red,orange,yellow,green,blue,indigo,violet) which are the hues that make up the colors of our topic….you guessed it! THE RAINBOW!!!!!!!!
The only reason I am writing about this topic is because it came about one sunny afternoon in southern Cali when my friend and I were discussing articles of clothing she will design for me in the near future (I HOPE SHE GETS THE HINT wink wink)LOL. So, I told her wait until after I get in a serious relationship with a man because I don’t want anyone to get the wrong conceptions about what I am, what I believe, what I support, or what I stand for. We both laughed and joked and that was the end of it. Days even weeks went by after our conversation, and I was writing to God about that topic-wearing rainbow and being in a serious relationship with my man (in the future) I am very much single!
Of course, me being raised in the church I know the story of Noah’s ark pretty well; well enough to know the rainbow was symbolism for God’s covenant (promise) he made with Noah (Genesis 9:12-17). I said all of that to say multi-colors separately or together are beautiful, why?! because EVERYTHING GOD CREATED IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!! (Ecclesiastes 3:11, Colossians 1:16) so if God made it, it is beautiful period.
Now let me explain why the rainbow is so valuable to me. On my journey of obedience and complete surrender God told me to give up the 2 biggest things I had going for myself at the time, me being ignorant I did, I let it go. I say ignorant, because I told myself God is going to bless me like “this” in “this amount of time” and when it didn’t happen the way I expected I was angry and felt it wasn’t worth it (check out when God disappoints you-Toure Roberts on vimeo). Thank God for grace, mercy, patience, understanding, and ordering my footsteps. Right here I have to give a shout out to Pastor Toure Roberts, One Church. His teaching, his wisdom, his pure heart, the live streams, the vimeos, and his realness helped me more than I could ever express!!!! Real Talk.
8-11-13 “Right now this is my season of transition. I don’t fully understand the process, but I know it will all be worth it. I know what I’m doing doesn’t make sense-it is against the norm, but I am standing on God’s promises for my life. I’m sure when Noah was building the ark he looked crazy to the outsiders he knew what God told him, he knew it would be worth it to receive God’s favor for being obedient and did not care about people’s opinions. Although what Noah did was unheard of, against the norm, unconventional at his time, God blessed him and his family because of his obedience, God told me not to worry about acceptance so I WON’T!!! because GOD IS THE ONLY ONE THAT MATTERS.”
I wrote that because I totally relate to Noah even now, because it is a whole lot I don’t understand about my path. I even got frustrated because people are willing to talk the talk but judge you for walking the walk (don’t get me started…hahaha) but I am more appreciative of my journey now and the character God is developing in me to be able to manage all he has promised me. Funny story I was watching “Certainty in Uncertain Times” a different message on vimeo from Pastor Toure, he was explaining the naming of The Arc (his non-profit organization) I was mind blown like wow Jesus!!!!!
Anywho, if you see me at 614 n Labrea(One Church) say “Hey!”, i’ll be the lady wearing the rainbow earrings TURN UP! LOL
Love you guys be bold, stay beautiful, be happy, always smile, love unconditionally, never apologize for being you!
God created you on purpose to be creative and unique!!! Just like each color in the rainbow has significance so does every life and every person, it is only one race, the human race, WE ARE ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
