Colors Of The Rainbow
Ever ask what are the colors of the rainbow? It encompasses of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. In short, you get Roy G. Biv.
Ever since I heard of the story of Noah’s ark, I fell in love with God’s rainbow. It was the one thing that I kept my eyes on, every time I travel.
Often time, I would look into the sky and hope maybe I spot a rainbow especially after a heavy rainfall and the sun appeared.
Encompass All – A student Life In Adelaide
When I turned 30, I left my family to study in Adelaide, South Australia in 2000. My first week at the campus was bearable because my little sister was with me. When she left, I felt miserable.
First time in my life, I was all alone. You see, I came from a big family of 13. I was hardly alone, often with my traveling partner, my little sister. But now, thing changed. I bawled my eyes out first week of school. I never felt that out of place ever in my life.
Please tell me I’m not the odd one out. Anyway, I spent a lot of time talking to God. When God is the only friend you know..
One Unique Sunday Afternoon
One unique Sunday afternoon, my life changed. I left my room and walked to the Sport Hall alone. I seek God for His presence that afternoon. While I was contemplating, I looked up the clear sky after a shower, and I saw the most beautiful double rainbow.
Immediately, I felt God telling me: ‘I am with you’. A peace fell upon me. A peace that I never experienced before filled me and I knew for the first time, I was where I should be.
I received a promise from God that I would not be alone just like God promised Noah that through the rainbow, the earth would never be destroyed by flood again.
A Journey Of Faith Begun
After that unique encounter with God, my journey as a student in a strange land became an exciting time of my life. I learned that joy of being independent and my faith in God grew and strengthened as I made new friends and grew through a Christian students group.
God took me out of my comfort zone and grew my faith in Him through His rainbow. Therefore I am truly thankful for this journey in this amazing strange land of Australia.
